Total money lost $2,000
Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order
I had an account made on let-go it's a site where you can sell stuff around where you live. Well the first time I got on there the first item I put on there was a antique chest. Well I got it text message saying this from the this guy and he was wanting to buy it and he said he lived in I think he said Texas. Well I asked him how was we were going to do this transaction since we lived in different states. The man said that he was an person that buys a lot of stuff offline and fixes it up like antique stuff that needs restoration, all over the world. That he had some movers coming to state next to me that's not really too far for me. The man said that he would have the movers come by here to pick it up. The man also went on to say that he would send me a check in the mail and it was going to be $1,000 or so. Well I got the check in the mail it was for $1,000 well I was just selling my chest for I think 300 he wanted me to cash the check in my account. Then he wanted me to pay the movers when they got here which never came. And to keep the rest for shopping or what whatever I needed. Then I went to the bank to try to cash it and they cashed it and then they come right before I left. Actually they came and got me out of the car when I was leaving. And I come in to the bank and the women told me that that they thought it was a scam they didn't know because it looked so real and it went through and everything but they had done already cashed it. Well the bank puts me 10000 in the negative. And kicks me out of the bank I am no longer allowed to go to that bank and actually no Bank really will take me anymore. I had to pay the $35 for the check not going through and being bad. I thought that this was BS that they should have known before they cashed it and even them knowing and still having me pay them for it going through. Plus the negative 10,000 on my credit. So they pretty much screwed me pretty good. Can't go to know bank now , can't get a loan now , and I had to pay them money plus I have that on my account for a long time. I have no idea what I can do about this if I could do anything about it. But there has to be somebody out there that can help me or do something about this because it is not right it is not right that people can do this to you. It is not right at the bank. Not right that they did what they did to me they cashed it they made me pay for it knowing that it was not right. I think that they should have handled it a lot different. I think they should have gave me money instead of me having to give them money. I am disabled I have no job I have three kids. They have thousands millions probably. Thank you very much for letting me vent. And thank you for letting me tell my story I hope it helps somebody out there. I know it taught me in good lesson. And I know that it probably messed me up for life in the credit world and me ever getting anything owned or anyting. If you ever come across anyone wanting to give you money and asking you to give them money before you get the money do not ever do that either cuz that one is a scam also. And another scam is Publishers Clearing House they send you stuff saying you have won so much money to give them a check for it's usually 5 to $9 or so but I've done it probably about 10 times or more dummy me. So that is a scam also because they never send you no money you never win no money, so they're just getting money. Thanks for listening and don't get scammed if you can help it.

Type of a scam Tech Support
"Adam" called stating he was calling from the service center about your computer. She asked which computer. He stated it was her Dell computer. She doesn't own one. She told him that he was a scammer and she does not own a
Dell computer. He then became angry and used all sorts of profane language.
