One of your friends on Facebook messaged me saying that they entered into a contest and won $150,000.

I asked how she find out about the contest which she said someone told her she was on a list. She gave me a number to text. I was asked to pay $1650 for taxes and handling. They never verified that they worked for Facebook. After I told them I would only pay if they verified this, they stopped texting back. Facebook Drawing asking for name, address, email. I believe it wasn't really my friend messaging me.

I am being contacted by a Carpenter Samuel Lawrence through Facebook who claims I have won $600,000 through a Facebook world lottery. I have reported it to Facebook several times and they do nothing while he continues his scam. Can someone please look into this? I can't imagine how predators like this can just have free reign to try and scam with no one to stop them.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I was working on creating a Facebook page for my church when Jeannie Marie Short friended me on Facebook. Her profile says she is an Online Promo Claims Agent at Facebook. I thought she worked for Facebook and could help me with the page. We talked about the church Facebook page and she answered some questions and gave me some advice.

Then she said she was asked to contact me by Mark Zuckerberg and asked if I was familiar with Facebook promo that is going on. I told her no. She asked if I had been notified or informed about the Facebook promo and told me I had won $950,000.00. I told her I was afraid of hoaxes. She assured me it was not a hoax. She then asked me to send $220 via MoneyGram to have my prize delivered. I bought the MoneyGram and sent it to John William Fick, in Kipp, Kansas 67401 and I sent her a picture of the receipt.

I asked about taxes. She said the FedEx delivery had been stopped by the IRS until I sent her the Certificate of IRS clearance, which was going to cost me $1240 more. I told her I wasn't paying any more money that I didn't have. She tried to convince me that this was real by sending me pictures of previous winners. I wouldn't send her any more money.

Then Middleton Thomas tried to friend me. He said he was a Special Agent for the FBI. He said he got notification from Facebook about some winnings I was getting from Facebook. I told him I was on the way to talk to BBB. He said to hold on while he investigated. He came back and said he had verified my winnings. He also sent me a copy of his FBI ID. I told him I was going to the news station because I smelled a rat.

This person said she represented the COO from facebook and that she was contacting me to tell me I won $500,000 from a benefit fund. 5 people total won. I kept a running conversation with this person on my IM page so I cannot forward it, but I still have it. I was to pay $400.00 for fedex to deliver me a package and they needed the money now. When I stated I didn't have the money, then the pressuring started. I was told that I would be involved in money laundering. That a package was at the airport waiting for me to sent my money. I didn't give them any money. I felt threatened and told her so, she became what felt was hostile. I called the Toledo Police, they came out and read the text and filed a report. It was suggested to let you know about it as well.

They're claiming that they work with Facebook and are giving away money - $950,000. They said they'll send the prize through UPS or FedEx, but you have to pay a delivery fee - $560, $470, or $370 - to receive it. I know this is a scam. Her name was Diane Shannon and she states she works for Facebook and they do these random drawings every three years. I want to alert the public of this.
