Total money lost $10,500
Type of a scam Government Grant
I want to report the fraudulent scam that has stolen my identity and about $10,000 from my bank account and I am facing to have to pay it back. First of all I received messages through Instant Messenger on my Facebook account. The scammers targeted my friends names and used them to reach through to me. They were offering me a grant for $150,000.00 and I had to pay processing fees of $1,000.00, and were also to buy Ebay gift cards. I didn't have all the cash so one of my friends was helping me. The grant was to be delivered by Fed Ex but they were in an auto accident and they wanted more money to get the grant to me. They even sent me pictures of the Fed Ex crash. Then they wanted more gift cards, They said $10,000.00 was going to be deposited into my bank account and I was to take $7,500.00 and buy Nike and American Express gift cards. They were very demanding and wanted me to do this as soon as possible.
My bank called me and asked about the deposit and at the time I thought it was good. The bank then contacted my daughter and told her they pulled the deposit and my account was negative at - $9,300. It took my daughters to explain to me that it was a scam and they used my friends to get through to me. I seriously thought I was talking to my friend, it was real, and she was telling me to do whatever the agent wanted. This was then getting out of hand and I felt pressured and confused. I also think my bank is somewhat responsible because they authorized the deposit to go through prior.
On December 27, 2019 I filed a police report.
I am retired and on a fixed income. It now has caused me a lot of problems, I'm stressed, financially hurt, and don't know what to do. They are still texting and emailing me and demanding more gift cards.They have also made a few payments to my credit card that has come out of a different bank account. Luckily we caught this and that bank is working with me. I have now changed bank account numbers, phone number, passwords, email, frozen with credit bureaus etc. There is probably more I can add but I can't think of what to do next. Please contact me for more information or suggestions.
