My Instagram account got hacked so I googled Facebook to talk with a rep and they acted as Facebook and I was told to purchase eBay cards (6) and I was ensured that the money was refundable then I was told to purchase another card and that when I got worried about not getting my money returned and was told it wouldn’t be returned unless I purchase 2 more eBay cards for one hundred each so I declined doing that and asked for my money to be returned and I was told it wouldn’t be returned unless I purchase another eBay (2) card so I filed a complaint and that lead me to this pleas help me thanks you

**** ***** on Facebook indicated that she could give me $500 for $50. You send $50 gift card then pay $100 in Bitcoin and would send $500 in cash app. I went to high school so was very trusting. She got into my Facebook and I no longer have access she also has copy of my driver license due to Bitcoin.

Type of a scam CryptoCurrency

My Facebook friend told me she got a grant. He told me to reach out to John Browne. I have been IM'ing him. I had to fill out a questionnaire asking for name, address and phone number and give 3 reasons why I wanted the money, which I did. He said I was eligible for an $11,500 government grant. He asked me to pay $350 in bitcoin. He said he needed the money to set up the money. He told me to find the nearest bitcoin machine to me. I asked my friend if he had to pay the initial $350 and he said yes. So, I went to Circle K at 8861 E Broad St, Reynoldsburg, OH. Then he said the other guideline is that I have to pay $500 for a processing fee. I returned to Circle K and sent another $500. A bar code was sent to my phone. Then I entered the cash, and got a receipt which has an encrypted address on it. I told him I thought I was being scammed, so he sent me a picture of a box of cash which was supposed to be delivered by Global Logistics in Washington DC. The address on the label is **** **** St nw ste 502, washington dc 20005. Their number is 866-737-7775. Then he said the next guideline was to send him another $500 to pay the courrier. I asked my FB friend where he was working, and he didn't respond. I told John Browne I would not send any more money until I had further verification. I got a message from him saying "you need to listen to me". I told him not to take that tone with me. I would send money on July 2nd. I've kept everytihng on my phone. He said he would let his manager know. I had just got paid on Friday, and that was the majority of my paycheck. I am a widow. I hope nobody else goes through.

Type of a scam Other

I reached out to several pages on Facebook inquiring about basset hound puppies for sale, and ended up on a "Basset hound puppies for sale" page. One individual reached out indicating they did have puppies for sale and lived in Rochester, MN. They provided several pictures of puppies and a video. They needed a down deposit to hold the puppy for pick up and offered the options Zelle, Paypay, and Apple Pay. I paid with Zelle to the account name Victoria Kendrick, email address [email protected], and after payment was sent, they continued to discuss things such as full name of who was purchasing the puppy, address, phone number, email, etc for what they claimed were for the registration papers. I asked several times for a phone number of the seller to discuss over the phone, and they finally texted me from the number 717-535-3545. They said they would call at 8 p.m. but never did. I asked for a refund and was ghosted - my messages are not going through on Facebook where I was primarily communicating with them, and when I try to call the phone number, it says that the number I am trying to reach is no longer in service.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

Facebook has become too big for its britches and has taken their social media platform to a new level, they have taken the Nigerian scams and moved the scams to their social media, advertising scams from fake Chinese scammers, laptops of all makes and models that go for several hundred dollars for less than $100, Samsung flat screens that for go for several hundred dollars for less than $100, alleged Amazon returns in the form of a pallet full of merchandise supposedly worth hundreds of dollars, thousands of dollars, for a tiny fraction of the cost, mystery camera box with hundreds of dollars worth of gear for a fraction of the cost. I was stupid, purchased two items, a mystery camera box, supposed to be a large box, for around $50, took a month to receive two tiny packages no bigger than a pack of cigarettes, with nothing at all what they advertised on Facebook, also purchased a 17 inch Dell laptop for $99, made this purchase nearly a month ago, have never seen anything on this purchase.

Both of these purchases were made through Paypal, and those folks are as guilty as Facebook for being willing to make bogus payments to these Chinese scammers! Both Facebook and Paypal need to be held accountable for these scams out of China, and I want Facebook to pay me my money back with interest, and stop running these false bogus misleading scams countless times every single day, you report one, another one pops up somewhere else on the social medias platform. Mark Zuckerberg is a [censored] and should lose every dime he has being complicit with these Chinese scammers!!!

Type of a scam Government Grant

I got a message from my friend on FB saying she got a grant and I could get one too. They are asking for $500 to get $20,000. My mother got the message as well. They even lowered the amount to $200. They want us to buy a giftcard and once the giftcard number is confirmed, they would deliver the money to my door in cash. I said I was scared, I'm 3 months behind. They said not to be scared.

Type of a scam Tech Support

Was trying to help a friend who is a new business owner and was having problems and looked up the customer support number for Facebook. There is a (866) 380-3888 listed to contact. I called them and they answered as facebook. The woman asked for my name, which I gave as all fb accounts have a user name associated. She made me repeat it a second time so it was clear. She then started talking about how I qualified for a $100 Visa card and that I only had to pay a processing fee. I told her we were not interested and that we only needed support with my friends FB Shop and she hung up on me. No other personal information other than full name was given but was worried about her possibly having recorded my name in my voice as she made me repeat it.
