Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

My mother-in-law has managed to put herself on the sweepstakes 'sucker' list (zip code 83615). She has changed her checking account number once, as she realized something was up. However, her dementia won't let her stop, it seems. New Twist (maybe): the most recent entanglement has been a lady offering to help my mother-in-law with protecting herself from scams--for a $5300.00 fee. Yes, a scam to provide protection from scammers. My daughter over heard a conversation that put the family on alert. My daughter called the lady (972-505-3450) and gave her the 'what for' and told her grandmother would not be meeting (airport was to be the meeting place, I think) her to give her $5300. My daughter did report that the lady did not get ruffled at this rebuke, and was smooth in her responses, even polite. I believe the meeting to provide the $5500 to this lady was to occur tomorrow, Dec 11, 2015. My mother-in-law has now implied she has no intentions of following through. However, we have heard similar responses from her in recent weeks and she can't yet seem to leave it alone. There are further details, but likely not helpful to anyone else in this format here. There are also details that are unclear. Time to change the phone number, etc. We don't believe she has yet lost any funds.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I was told the government selects people every year for a self betterment grant that is not taxed and you don't have to repay. They then told me that they could not send a check and that you have to buy money gram express vouchers from dollar general and pay 250 dollars to have the limit of the card raised to accommodate the large amount of the grant.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I have been receiving repeated long distance calls from a number I did not recognize,

The caller new my first name and told me they have been receiving reports my PC was having an issue for several weeks. I asked if he was calling from India. He said no. I told him he was a fraud and to stop calling me. I did not allow the call to progress far enough for him to try to get money from me and hung up.

Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

I've gotten calls from scammers before, these guys are good.

An Indian man named "Riley" called me. I knew something was off when it wasn't an actual phone number that showed on caller ID. Next, huge claim that all my student loan debt could be approved for complete forgiveness...GREAT, tell me more! So he started by asking some harmless questions: size of household, annual income, nothing too revealing. Then he wanted me to log in and create a FSA ID and give him that info. UH, NO! So I lied and I told him I didn't have access to the internet at the time, that my phone is my internet and I can't talk and be on the web at the same time. He asked me to feed him my personal info to create a federal ID. I THINK NOT! So he conceded to send me a link in an email to the webpage to create the ID and he would call me in 30 minutes to continue the process.

During that 30 minutes, I created my ID (but not from his link-just in case) since I will need that when I complete my next FAFSA. I also googled the email address he sent the email from. Their webpage LOOKS GREAT! Only the reviews are way off. The language screams translation app. A little more looking finds a disclaimer on their webpage that states they are NOT affiliated with the US department of Education. They are not rated. On their website a heading actually states "What Customers Are Saying About Customer Name" like they forgot to enter USFLCC in the template when building their website. One of the "off" reviews: "Thanks again for helping us through another complex series of transactions. This one, while complicated, was at least far less stressful. We appreciate your responsive." - Paula Frady Geibel Student"

Too many things off. So I waited for "Riley" to call back to see what info he required to tell me what forgiveness programs I qualify for. So he immediately wanted the username and password I created. I told him that per the recommendation of the Department of Ed website I just used to create my ID, I wasn't going to provide him with my info. So he said he would send me another email that would contain a code. That I should check my email and give him the code. (By this time, I had my laptop in front of me) The email was from [email protected] It was a standard "Request for Username" email. Had I given him the code he would have entered it and had COMPLETE access to my FSA ID. I told him I was not giving him that info. He insisted he needed to enter it into their system that is "directly linked to the federal loan office to see how much of my student loan they can erase."

I told him he isn't an DoED employee and I am not giving him access to my ID which has the power to be my legal signature. At this point he agreed that there was nothing more he could do for me and bid me goodnight.

These guys are good. They say all the right trigger words, and they want you to complete the process while they are are the phone with you so you don't have time to check the validity of the situation.
