Type of a scam Government Grant

A man called my phone informing me that I had been chosen by the federal government to recieve a one time federal grant in the amount of $11,000 then he gave me the options for recieving the money by checking savings or western union then gave me a verification code for recieving the money and a phone number in which to call for further instructions. I called the number given "(202)642-9943" and a woman answered and enquired of the nature of the call and asked for grant code "gd521" and then she informed me that I would need to go to the western union with my phone photo I.D and a $250.00 process fee and that I should call her from the parking lot so she could talk me thru the rest of the procedure and said she would stay on the phone with me until the money was in my possession. I told her that I didn't have the money and couldn't borrow from family or friends. She then said that I should get the money as soon as possible and to call her back at the same number as before and to ask for Jessica Brown at ext.207 the call was ended and I was kind like no way this could be legitimate so l got online and searched for possible scams and as I was reading the info I saw the same pattern of scam right down to the amount of fake grant transaction type and process fee. I immediately came to this site to report the scam. Initial contact was around 2:30pm today June 19,2019. That's all the info I can provide at the moment if I can recall any other information I will report it as soon as possible.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

This website sells sports memorabilia and appears to be associated with a number of additional scams I discovered for online retailers that have 'the ...... Shoppe" in the name. In this case, once you purchase the item you receive an automatic message from their *** email address. Then there is a significant delay between when the item is purchased, when the order status shows the order is filled, and ultimately when it is shipped. This is what caused my initial suspicion. After reaching out to the customer service email several times without a response, I investigated the website further. The website doesn't provide a physical address or a phone number to contact them. In addition, there is not a single customer review online or on their site for any item. I used paypal for my transaction and disputed the purchase with paypal which is when i received the *** email address for the seller. Upon disputing the purchase as fraud via paypal's dispute resolution service, the seller refunded the purchase and said it was because "this item is no longer available". While I didn't suffer a financial loss on this purchase, I certainly believe I would have if I didn't purchase this item via paypal and ultimately had another outlet to dispute the transaction. This seller most likely would have delayed the shipment for so long that I would have given up or they would have deleted the site all together and I wouldn't have had a contact email address, phone number or physical address to pursue a resolution.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I signed up to be a sitter on Rover and got a message from a woman saying her boss needed help watching their dogs in the coming weeks. I contacted the "boss" who after numerous messages sent me a $2,450 check to deposit. They said to deduct 350 for myself, 100 for pet supplies, and 2000 to give to some appliance store. After the check cleared they changed where they wanted the 2000 to go to. They told me to go to Walmart and take out a cash deposit slip, leave it blank, and send it to some address in Indiana. After realizing a bit too late that the check was going to bounce, I lied and pretended that I took the money out and mailed it to a Dante Micheal. Luckly I only spent about $100 of the money from the check so I wasn't $2000 in the hole.

They also gave me a store address which I assume they mean to mean is the appliance store? It was: 9200 Stony Point Pkwy, Richmond VA 23235

The emails sounded quite sincere and they even sent me photos of what was supposed to be her and her dogs.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I just received a call from this number. The lady spoke fast and had a heavy accent, so I couldn't understand the name of the "company" from which she claimed she was calling. She said she was calling in regards to a refund owed to me from a computer virus protection that I supposedly paid for in 2017. She said all I needed to do was log onto my computer so a technician could help me get my refund. I said I would have to call back and asked for a number, as she was calling from a restricted line. She said her name was Christine ***, her employee ID was ***, and that the callback number was (408) 741-***. I immediately hung up and called that number. It rang for quite a while and then, of course, a recording said the number was no longer in service.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

When you try to obtain your vacation package, most dates are not available plus there are more fees added in the range of $70.00 to $250.00. The company is very difficult to call or communicate with. I would call this a scam and would not recommend anyone signing up with this!

Type of a scam Phishing

They left a message saying that they were the IRS calling because my SS# has been compromised. When I returned the call he asked if this is the # associated with my SS# and I said yes. He put me on hold and then the call disconnected. He called right back with apologies. He then asked me to identify myself. I told him that he should have that information since he called me to inform me. He said just verify it please so we can move on. I told him that I don’t think so.

I received a phone call 6/18/19. The voice sounded like a woman's computer generated voice. She said that this was my final call and she was calling because my Social Security Number had been used fraudulently and illegally in the state of Texas. And my number was going to be suspended if I didn't call their number in 24 hours. The number was 864-756-1266 which she repeated on number at a time very slowly.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Approx. 2 2 month I received an email solicitation which appeared to be by Walmart looking for secret shoppers. I always liked that idea and send in my contact information. Yesterday 6/17/2019 I received a text asking how I am. I responded who are you and why do I know you. the texter identified as Walmart and informed me that a pkg for my 1st assignment had been mailed. Indeed in the mailbox was a United Stated priority envelope contain a check for $2450 and a poorly copied instruction letter both are attached hereto.

I played them along saying I was very busy moving and could not do it right away or at all, they responded (all by texts) I could do this anywhere. I responded OK based on the instructions I can do this. They gave no time limit but then texted if I do it within 24 hrs I get a $100 bonus and immediately following another text saying to change the instructions from buying Walmart gift cards to buy Ebay gift cards.

I then found scam posts on the internet and your BBB resource to report this fraud.
