Total money lost $200
Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter
Someone named Christine Smith called me and said that I could get money from a grant that was sponsored by eBay and Google play. They had me go to the store and get $200 in eBay gift cards and give them the numbers off of it. They called me and said the cards didn't work and told me to get $200 more and send those to them. I don't have any more money so I didn't, and they kept calling me asking to get more cards for them.

Total money lost $200
Type of a scam Other
I was texted by who I believed was a friend. They used her profile. She said she was awarded 85,000 and had seen my name on the list also. She stated she received the money. I was asked to buy 2 100$ Amazon cards and send them copies of it along with the receipt. After I do that I would receive $95,000 dollars. I am trapped in Texas, homeless and on disability. I needed that money to get home. And 200$ is gone. Now I have no money, I'm homeless and that money was to get me back to NY. I am devastated and afraid.. I NEED help and this was the last thing I needed right now.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare
They have called me two days in a row. they are wanting to know information from my insurance company and who my primary doctor is. I have called the number back and no one answers. I spoke to someone yesterday he said his name is Mike. I asked why someone from my state isn't calling me and he said that they are to busy to call everyone. He also called around 8:00 pm. I ask him why he is calling so late and he said that they have to work late. It just sounds really fishy to me.
