Total money lost $150
Type of a scam Investment

The scammer posted photos and videos of people holding lots of cash on Instagram advertising that sending $150 gets you $1500, 200 gets you 2000, and on up to 900. I sent 150 to a woman in Jamaica and a man with a jamaican accent called me to send hundreds more to the money that was advertised

Type of a scam Phishing

They are a scam and asked for money to be sent to them to turn your $100’s into $1,000’s and they asked for $100 and I’d get back $1,500 so they came up with an excuse to say it was double bubble day and I’d get $2,500 soon. I was like oh cool and I was waiting for my money and they called back saying I needed to transfer over another $250 to release my money to me. So I did so and they gave me the run around saying their systems went down and my funds would be ready first thing in the morning and when the morning cane they completely ignore my calls and texts so I finally realized that it was all a scam. I got my $100 back but lost out on my $250 I sent the second time. If I would have called 10 minutes before I would have gotten back my $250 as well but they pulled the money out before.

Type of a scam Rental

I was contacted by a "Sgt. Thomas Mitchell" regarding an apartment he advertised on Craigslist. Shortly after contacting him at "[email protected]" regarding the apartment details, I was contacted by a "Jeff Wood", claiming to be with Customer Service at Airbnb. I thought that "Sgt. Mitchell" was advertising on both Craigslist and Airbnb to rent the apartment out faster. Anyway, "Jeff Wood" contacted me from the "[email protected]" e-mail address, not a real Airbnb e-mail address as I found out later. "Mr. Wood" told me that I should send $1400 through MoneyGram to a "Mr. George Bates", attorney for Airbnb, if I wanted to reserve the apartment. I was told that after I did this, I would be given a confirmation number with all of the details. However, after I sent the money, I haven't heard anything back from any of these three individuals. I confirmed, through MoneyGram, that a "Mr. George Bates" did indeed pick up the money that I sent to a Walmart store with an address of 4555 Michigan Avenue, in Canton, MI. 48188. The MoneyGram reference number is XXXXXXX. "Mr. Wood" also gave me an address for "Mr. Bates" at 615 Griswold St., in Detroit, MI. 48226. So far, I've reported this fraud to Craigslist (which has removed the original apartment posting), Airbnb, MoneyGram, the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), the FTC (reference number XXXXXXXX), the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, and the local Beltsville Police Department. The Beltsville, MD.

Rental scam. Used moneygram to security code my money just in case it was too good to be true and MoneyGram released my money to the other party named Chantelle Gabby in Benin City, Nigeria without answering the security code and use the correct answer to get the money. Just in case I wanted to cancel it. Well now I'm out 1000$ thanks to MoneyGram and their neglected policies and procedures. MoneyGram states safe and secure. Definitely not!

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Received a letter and a check via USPS Priority Mail-2nd Day with instructions on how to become a mystery shopper. The check is for $2,450.00 and I'm supposed to deposit it in my personal account; once the funds clear, I'm to notify the person sending the letter. Then I'm supposed to go to a MoneyGram location and send half the funds to one person and the other half to another person. I'm supposed to evaluate and rate the MoneyGram location on their service, but under no condition am I to tell them I'm a mystery shopper and rating them. My commission for performing this service is $250, plus $50 to cover MoneyGram transfer fees. Clearly this is a scam as I have never contact MoneyGram, never inquired or applied to be a mystery shopper and have no idea how they got my information.
