Total money lost $700
Type of a scam Home Improvement

A tall blonde very young man with what sounded like a British or Welsh accent in an ordinary car- not labelled with any business name- came to the door and offered to chemically clean the driveway and the driveway would be sealed and protected for 10 years

he first asked $1000 and we offered 700 as we have overhanging trees which do stain the pavement

after the washing was done (and I'm not sure whether my husband watched a second process for the sealing which would have been the main expense)

when it came for time to pay, the young man was very persistent in requesting cash and appeared upset that that was not possible

my husband paid by cheque and the man promised that a receipt would be sent by email

this was several days ago and we have received no receipt by email and now suspect strongly that this is probably a scam

I called the above phone number above

and got "you have reached.......please leave a message after the tone"

Spoofed phone number to call from an Xcel Energy phone number. Told me my account was past due and power was going to be disconnected. I told them I didn’t owe anything because I pay my bill through their app and nothing was past due. He told me they’ve had issues with their app and said I owed $200 more than what my previous bill was. Told me a technician was on his way to my home to disconnect. Said I couldn’t pay with a debit or credit card but needed to go get a Green Dot card from Walmart or 7/11.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

The following phone number contacted my mom's residence and left a message for me: 844-369-8544. They told her that they are suing me for a debt and that they will be contacting my employer. This occurred on 07/17/19. The name was Diana Walker. A different "agent" called back again on 07/18/19 and left another message for me, saying "they will find me". They also left a "case number" both times. I then got curious and called the number back and provided my "case number" to see what this was all in regards to. They said that I owe a $2000 pay day loan with Net Cash Man. I have never taken out a pay day loan with Net Cash Man. I've actually taken out a pay day loan one time, and it was not with Net Cash Man, and it was also not for this amount. So I called them and they knew my full social security number, my bank, my father's address, and my mother's telephone number, and my birthday. I told them that I did not take out a payday loan, and that someone must have stolen my identity. They told me that I should file a police report. I told them I will contact Net Cash Man and ask about this "debt" that I owe. They said that they will probably not have the information because the debt has been sold off. Also, when I called them it never goes to an answering system. A person answers immediately. They would provide no information to me, such as company name, location, etc. The last thing they said to me was "good luck in court".

Type of a scam Romance

POF profile IanW7295

Alledged Name after contact: Frank Ian Morris, from Castle Point, Hoboken, NJ

Alledged nationality: UK living in the US in the last 30 years

Alledged family: Kelly - daughter of 7 years old

Tel:1+253+499+5693 - a text subscriber

I was first contacted by this individual on POF dating website on May 31, 2019. A few days later he asked to continue the conversation on a more private medium, the time when I provided him with my phone number and e-mail address.

He claims as being an engineer, self-employed working as a contractor for various companies in the US, British citizen living in Castle Point, Hoboken, NJ. He claims he has a 7-year old daughter, Kelly who during the week is in a care center as he has a very long working schedule, and he would take her home on Saturday at noon for the weekend. We spoke numerous times on the phone. He is also using a small girl's voice while leaving messages.

After one month of messaging and talking on the phone and he asked me to marry him. I believed what he was saying about himself. He is very romantic, although not having very good spelling skills. Also, on the phone, he has an accent, which sometimes may be understood as being British. Very soon in our conversation, he gave me a "pet name" - "honey", which soon after developed into "my dear", "my Goddess".

We e-mailed and messaged a lot. Shortly after we got in contact he became seemed to care about me, asking constantly what I had for dinner, breakfast or lunch. One of his regular mistakes was spelling "launch" instead of lunch, and not using verbs. He would write "any man who know the value of he's woman will kneel down and ask". He oftentimes used "mum" which is how British nationals spell "mom". On the phone, his connection was always very bad. The calls were never too long, rather we spent more time messaging. One night we messaged back and forth until 5 am in the morning. During that conversation, he disclosed that he is a religious man, and trusts God. I was really happy to hear that. He would go each Sunday to the church with his daughter. He seemed very genuine.

I noticed that there were some inconsistencies in his facts, but I was not careful enough to get more details. He claimed that his parents were divorced when he was 3 and he was taken by his mother in Spain. He allegedly grew up in Spain until he was 18 and then returned to London, where he stayed for a while with his father. He then went back to his mother in Spain. Apparently, he was in the US for the last 30 years.

He claims he likes Latino music as that calms his nerves. After three weeks of messages and phone calls, I wanted to travel to NJ to meet him and his daughter, as I have a cousin there which would provide accommodation. He then said " I was having in mind we could come to see you as the man I think is best if I make the first move. That's the reason I have been working so hard to enable me finish in time and get to see my queen". As childish and romantic as it would be, that raised a flag. In fact, he was continuously saying that he will soon retire, but he wanted to get a last big contract which would secure him enough retiring funds. He would call me "Goddess", "princess", "sweety pie" and "my wife", "my love".

2 weeks ago, he claims he collapsed at work and was taken to a hospital. A couple of days later, as I had no news from him and knowing that he was recently released from the hospital, I called most of the emergency rooms in Hoboken and New York. None of them were able to confirm that a patient with his name was registered there in the last 72 hours. I, later on, asked him which hospital he was taken to and he answered " Hotellit Kohteessa". I checked online and that is a Military Hospital in New York. I felt awkward after learning that it was a military hospital, as I know for a fact that civilians do not have access to, nor are taken into a military hospital emergency room. Given the very convincing things he said, I was even looking for an apartment of at least 2 bedrooms, as he said he will come to Canada and work online from here. I was lead to believe that he will relocate here to be together. He knew that my current partner and I are divorced and selling our house. A few weeks back he claimed to have some problems with his bank account. He also claimed he solved it by going in person to the bank. A week ago, almost overnight he claimed he has to go to China to release some machinery purchased from suppliers there and sign some customs documents. Allegedly, he took his daughter with him as he cannot leave her behind in the States in the care center. He got sick and went to a hospital in China, Xiamen Fujian Province, and then he claims he was transferred to Fudan University's Zhongshan Xiamen Hospital. He sent me pictures and audio/video with his daughter. A week ago he asked me if I can purchase an Itunes card of $50 for him as he was not able to secure such in China. I tried to buy it for him online, however, Apple called me to verify if I really know the person I am sending the Itunes gift card to. I claimed I do know the person. However, Apple cancelled the transaction as they would not deliver the card to the e-mail address provided. He was not angry about that, he said he will buy his online. While supposedly in China, he had problems with paying the hospital bills. He did not directly ask for money. He did not pressure me to send him any amount. I located a translator in China, and she called the alleged hotel where he said they are staying in. Her answer was that there was no foreigner with that name in the hotel, moreover, there was no other foreigner in the hotel other than a Vietnamese citizen. I called the hospital he indicated and learned that it was just a clinic, not a hospital. He was saying that the hotel manager helped him out. I asked the Chinese translator in China to ask for the hotel manager. The answer was that there was no hotel manager there speaking English. However, at that point, I had a very bad feeling about all this, as the story would not make sense for me at all, and checked his pictures online the next day. Then was when I discovered the whole trap and scam I am in. I checked the pictures received from him and discovered that the guy online impersonated and stoled photos from Jay McHugh, a famous and successful real estate agent in the US.

I messaged my alleged " friend" or "hubby" telling him that I am coming to China to help him out. He then asked me to pay the hospital bill. I asked him to request from the hospital to send me an invoice. He was not very demanding or getting anxious, rather he said he will have to pay people to take his daughter out of China. The next day he sent me 2 emails asking me to stay in a hotel and wait for him, believing that I am in China by then. He said he and his daughter were taken to a safe place as it was an attack on her leaving the country. He and the daughter left a voice message on my phone begging me to stay safe. At that point, I was well aware of the scam, and I blocked his number, messages and destroyed a Gmail account created for him to get the Itunes card. I am frightened, sad and do not know where to start to protect myself, as well as my business. He has many pictures of myself in different places.

Overall he was very carrying, very romantic, sending me each morning and night citations which I found online about love, how much he cares, etc. Through his communication, in writing and on the phone, he made me believe that he is a genuine carrying, honest and very nice man. I really am scared of the whole thing as I never believed this could have happened.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I received a call from a man who asked for me by name. I asked who he was and he said he was a cancer testing lab associated with Medicare and records showed I had cancer at one time and said at no cost to me they would send me a swab kit and they could tell if I have ANY kind of cancer now and Medical would pay for it. He also asked if anyone else in my family had cancer , what kind and when. He said a representative would be calling me to explain how to use the swab kit and would get my information. I asked him several times what information would he need. He just kept saying the representative would explain how to use the kit and any other questions . I asked when this rep would be calling me and he kept saying I'll be getting a call. I had to talk over him and raised my voice and asked "When" again. Sounding a little annoyed he answered , " today , he'll call you today. My boyfriend said it sounded like a scam and went online and found an AARP report on a Medical scam that was almost word for word what this man had said. I was very upset because he asked about my family's cancer history and including my 37 yr.old son I had lost three other loved ones to cancer . He asked what kind of cancer each one had and when. And for what ?? Not to help cancer victims but to use them and victimize them and their health insurance. Anyway I called the number that showed up on my phone about 20 minutes after this man called and I got a disconnected message.
