Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

A man from Jamaica has been calling my mother's home phone and my cell phone (both are on the Do Not Call registry) for several weeks now, 10+ x a day, telling her she won a lot of money and asking her to send $100 to West Palm Beach FL. He is very nice on the phone but won't stop calling! She is a senior citizen and have had to turn off her cell phone to avoid getting his calls. I will be filing a complaint with the attorney general.

Type of a scam Phishing

Received a phone message from 940-437-7076 instructing me to call them back at the same number regarding an enforcement action against me (or my husband? - no name was given as to who the action was against) by the "US Treasury." Further threatened that ignoring the message would result in further action with a grand jury, etc. Man's voice, thick foreign accent. Caller ID displayed only the number, no company/organization. Have heard of similar scams and have had no issues with the US Treasury for such an action, so I believe this to be someone out phishing for identifying information and thought I should report the number as instructed on your webpage http://www.bbb.org/canton/news-events/news-releases/2015/10/us-treasury-phone-sc...

to me

I apologize to encroach into your privacy in this manner, I got your contact from a directory on the Internet here in Afghanistan. I find it pleasurable to offer you my partnership in business and i pray at this time that, your e-mail contact address is still valid. I know you don't know me but i meant no harm sending you this note, just that I don't have anyone out there to talk to, as I lost my parents in a car Accident, when I was 11 year old, I was raise up by my adopted parents, but they died years ago, the relatives of my adopted Parents throw me out of the house saying that I was not their real daughter. I know you can handle this money for me on till I come over to meet with you, we can also build friendship with this transaction. I lived in Lake Jackson, Texas before joining the Force.

You may be wondering why I choose to trust a delicate matter like this in the care of a stranger, but this is the best I can do in my present situation and I would have trusted this kind of project in the hands of my Husband who was my closest confidant, but I lost him to cancer on 22nd April, 2006 5 months after we got married, and my only brother has ruined his life with hard drugs, hence my decision to work with a neutral person if we can establish some trust between ourselves instead of confiding in my buddies back home so that this little secret can be preserved.

Let me start by introducing my self. My names are Sgt. Monica L. Brown, I am assigned to 782nd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division[3]. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,500,000.00 (Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here.

SOURCE OF MONEY:

I and some other high ranking Officers made some deal on oil business over there in Afghanistan before my exit to Iraq. The deal worth $132 Million United States Dollars and after we have all share the money I later realize $10.5 Million US DOLLARS which is my personal share of the deal, due to my status as a US Sergeant, I can not be able to move this huge funds to my account in United States to avoid further interrogation or face any kind of probation by the U.S government and I packaged my own share in a briefcase and have sent it to the Red-Cross society, because there is no other way out to keep it with me here, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, as I have deposited the consignment as a family treasure. Your acceptance to this would encourage me to send further information for us to proceed.

Furthermore, If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. I believe that such opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny. This chance won't pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. Do not betray my confidence.

If you wish to proceed with this, please get back to me.

Regards,

I received an email that appeared to be from PayPal, telling me that someone had attempted to access my account, so it had been disabled. The email said to re-activate my account, I needed to log into my account via the link provided and re-enter my financial info. The email was in poor grammar and misspelled. I went to the actual PayPal site and was able to log in, no problem. PayPal did not send the email.

A company called "The Perfect Gift" was advertising a advertisement around the Christm[censored]iday for a Christmas wrapper/ occasions gift wrapper they have you go through a hiring process and afterwards send you all the supplies that you will need to wrap the gifts. From that point they start sending you the gifts to wrap such as electronics, shoes, hard drives, blenders, watches ect..... When you receive the gift they then send you a assignment which includes how to wrap it what colors to use a assignment number a shipping label the gender of the person. When the gift is wrapped you have to send a picture of how you wrapped it in order for it to get approved, afterwards within two days they send you a email stating your assignment has been approved attached is a pre-paid shipping label and off to the post office you go. They compensate you with 30.00 per gift you wrap. Usually you receive 6-15 items a week first starting off small then eventually bigger items.

Type of a scam Employment

Scammers are now using job sites like Upwork to convince people they are hired and they advance money to them for 'working materials' in the form of a cheque. They insist you deposit the cheque in an ATM (not through a teller), withdraw the money to be forwarded onward to someone else.

The cheques they send are fake and PLEASE DO NOT CASH them!!! You will be liable to the bank to pay the bank back, and in the worst case, most likely have your accounts closed and unable to open new accounts anywhere else, and possibly be charged or investigated for money laundering.

Some tips when job hunting online:

1) ask for confirmation of whom you are talking to - ask at the very least for a employee ID card from the interviewer

2) get their location and verify it.

3) ensure they are communicating from their corporate email address. Using a free service like Yahoo, or GMail is a good tell tale sign they are fake, and/or if they use free chat apps like Hangout to 'interview you'.

4) never advance money to an potential employer. If they don't provide what you need to do your job, they probably are not legitimate

5) watch especially for 'work at home' opportunities. These are easy targets to hide suspicious trends in their scam

6) especially watch since the job market is not the most favorable in areas with job losses; these scammers prey on those in dire times. Be careful.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

Our babysitter received a call on her cell phone saying that my husband and I had been in a car accident and were in the hospital. The caller said we had hit the caller's nephew and that he was seriously injured. He used our first and last names. We were driving at the time (we hardly ever drive, so this was an odd coincidence). Our babysitter became hysterical, thinking we were injured, and hung up on the man and called us.

I received a call from 706-844-1784 saying they were from the treasury department and it is about my tax filed in 2011. His name was Dennis Gray. They went on to tell me that a warrant was issued for my arrest if I did not respond. The first call in made I asked for more information and the person hung up on me. I called back and someone named Paul Anderson answered and told me the same information. He asked me who filed my taxes that year but I did not tell him. I asked him if this was a scam and he replied --did I ask for money or an account number? I then asked him if I was sent out a notice and when and he slipped up and said in 2010. I was then told again that there is an arrest warrant out for me -- i asked him if the police were going to come to my home and he said yes and then hung up.

Fri. Feb. 5 approx. 11:22 AM I received a call on my home phone (registered NY and Fed. Do Not Call lists) from a Steve Martin claiming to represent the US Treasury Dept. and telling me that I needed to call him and that ignoring the request was a Federal criminal offense. His call-back number given was (972)-391-7144 which is a Texas number here in the US. He had a foreign accent. If he is calling from a US number why cannot that be tracked down and charges filed against him?
