Yesterday a man called me yesterday stating he was from the Massachusetts state police department and that I was under confiscation. I checked the number he called from, 978-462-7478, and Google indeed confirm it was from the Massachusetts state police. He said his name was William Turner, and asked if I was aware that my file is under confiscation by the government. I said no I didn’t know that and was immediately alarmed, as I had done nothing illegal in my life, as far as I was aware. He then proceeded to ask if I had been to El Paso or Houston, as there had been a crime the other day under my name and SSN. The criminal under my name and SSN was found with an abandoned car full of cocaine and he is investigating the case. I had never been to El Paso or Houston ever and told him this is fraud and someone must have stolen my identity. Thereafter, he proceeded the “investigation” and asked for my home address, email address, and said I am not to communicate with anyone at this point while I was speaking to him. Any communication with someone else would put me in jail as it would be deemed as suspicious activity and non compliant. I was in my apartment when I was speaking to him and my roommate was home and asked what was going on, I whispered to her that my identity had been stolen and I was on the phone with said police. “William Turner” heard me whispering and asked if I was speaking about matters to anyone, and berated me for it as it would put a mark against me on the record for conspiring. I was afraid and wanted to comply.

He was convincing and said to stay calm and that he’s gathering the paperwork so to issue me a new SSN. I thanked him for his assistance and he was calming and told me to get tea or something to eat and to stay calm, that he was here to help. He instructed me that the suspect is in VA and they are tracking them, and kept me updated on their progress with tracking the criminal. Because the suspect doesn’t know that I am aware, he instructed me that we will need to consolidate my funds and take them out of my account so the suspect doesn’t take my money with my stolen identity. He said I will need to empty my account, and not touch it, so any activity, they could deem it to be the criminal doing it.

“William Turner” asked me how many banks I bank with, which ones (by name), and the amount total. He instructed me that I need to transfer all my money into one account, and wire it out to his General Attorney (allegedly his boss) who will keep it safe and direct me to the SS department. At this point I’ve been on the phone with him for an hour. The attorney general began to WhatsApp me at this time. I did as I was told and tried to transfer my funds online all over to my chase account, to then send a wire to the “attorney general” for safekeeping. After 15 minutes, the funds were still not transferred, and William Turner was getting antsy and said that his “attorney general” was putting a lot of pressure that this needs to be done quickly as the suspect is getting away. Because of the time delay, he instructed me to do this in person, so I spent the next two hours running around Manhattan trying to consolidate everything into one account “before the criminal got to my funds.” This entire time, I’ve been on the phone with William Turner. I was growing suspicious as the way the attorney general spoke to me was similar to how William was speaking. In retrospect, they were likely the same person.

In the end, I eventually made the wire out to the name and address of the “attorney general” which he WhatsApp-ed me. I was ridden with fear the entire time. William asked me to send him a photo of the receipt and a photo of my ID. I complied. I successfully wired out 10,735 to him and he told me to go home and rest while he finished the paperwork to then instruct me which SSN branch to go to.

I went home, and at this point my friend was concerned because I wasn’t answering any of her texts after my first alarm to her when I first got the call saying that the police is calling me and that I was afraid. My friend came home, found me, and said this is a scam. She downloaded the WhatsApp conversation, then blocked the attorney general. We ran to Chase bank and requested the wire to be undone. Time between transaction of shipment and asking for it to be undone was about 1.5 hours.

At this point I was in a horrible mental state as this man now had a copy of my ID, email address, the last 4 digits of my SSN, and my receipt of the wire transaction which includes my account number and home address.

We went to filed a report to the police but they said I cannot file a crime until the transaction actually goes through. They were also unhelpful in that they were unable to do any searches of suspects outside of the state of NY since they are the state department.

Since the receiving entity banks with TD bank, the next morning at 9:30am on November 16 I went to TD bank to share what happened and asked if we could place a hold on the funds of the receiver. Ashley Lawrence, the assistant store manager, listened to what happened and was very knowledgeable in regards to fraud. She put a hold on the funds for 30 days so to give the Chase request to undo the transaction a chance.

I will go to the police again as I’d like to file a report on fraud.
