Type of a scam Romance

I was messaged by a man on *** named Louis. Wanted to start as friends then to romance via texts. He starts with an iPhone, says he lost it then we chat on a different phone number (he says it’s his work phone but it’s a scam number through free tone). Said he works as an HSE manager in the oil and gas industry. We were going to “meet” them all of a sudden he has a trip to Brazil he needs to go in as he’s reactivating an abandoned oil rig. He says he’s widowed, no kids. Lives in the West End of Vancouver. He’s very convincing, tells you he wants to marry you. He then says his divers found diamonds and wants me to pay for the “diplomat” to fly them and delivered to my doorstep. It was then I caught on. I found a website called social cat fish. Searched his photo and it is someone else in the states, an army ranger. This scammer goes by the name of Curitila0001. Louis Fernando does not exist. He is on several dating sites.

They call telling you have a past due balance for a credit card which you don't have from 2009. Never been on your credit report. Saying they are going to serve you with papers for not being willing to pay.

Type of a scam Rental

I went on this site to view "rentals" that seemed too good to be true- 3 bedroom houses that had been newly remodeled for under $600. The addresses were included so I Google mapped the addresses. They are in fact the correct house, but Trulia listings pop up that these "rentals" were in fact houses that use to be for sale and are now sold. I called the number and it repeatedly sent me to different phone lines, as I could hear the ringtone switching pitches with pauses. I sadly emailed them about a listing before scrolling further and seeing something wasn't right. Hopefully, they can't hack my email is all I worry!

Type of a scam Government Grant

a friend of mine contacted me thru FB and I asked her a few questions to see if she answered correctly and she did .. she told me about this Government Grant and that she received loads of money and gave me the name and number of a gentleman to contact to see if I qualify .. I unfortunately sent him my driver's license ID and a bit about me then I started to feel uneasy ..I would have to pay money to get money = i.e. pay $5K to get $200K based on a Government Grant

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I received an email asking about my motorcycle and asked if I had a history report on my VIN. I told him no and he said it would be of my best interest to get a history report for my motorcycle and he would be interested if I did. He gave me a link to go to that he uses on the internet "http:/***.*** and they can provide it for $19. I want to the link and it was a link called *** and they took Paypal so I used my Paypal account to make the payment. It provided a report and a link that I could post on my bike and people could see it. I then received another text from someone in Baltimore asking for another report and then I realized it must be a scam. I tried to reach the guy back and of course he would not resend an email. I looked at the *** and *** on line and apparently these are scams.

Type of a scam Phishing

I rec'd a voicemail stating that I need to call back the number above immediately, that they were investigating my social security number and that if I didn't contact them, I would lose benefits. But I don't even get benefits. When I called, the guy sounded foreign but said they were in the Texas office of Social Security and that I needed to give them my number. When I didn't, they got real aggressive telling me I had to or they'd cancel my number, but couldn't explain how they could cancel it if I needed to give them it.

Type of a scam Counterfeit Product

Bioscimax text me a url cashmoneyday.com or something like that. After listening to the video how the company would set up a site for you to generate additional income for $37. I was curious, so I clicked the link which went to BioSciMax and filled out a form. Desiree from the company called and explained they could set up a web and click funnel with a minimum of 2500 customers but this would cost $2500. The $37 was for manually setting it up yourself. I said that is not what the video said, that is false advertising. She said she would check into that, but the starter kit is $97 dollars (which I have not received) and the balance is the investment in guaranteed customers to visit the site. I asked what else do I have to provide or do. She said nothing. Just check your stats regularly to see how many visitors and income generated. I asked about the refund of the $37 dollars and that I would have think about it. I also discussed the commission. She said I would still be backed by the money back guarantee and if I did it that week my account would active 4/12/2019. I asked so my investment of $2500 will be refunded if I am not satisfied. I said I would think about it. She said if I was interested Catherine will email payment instructions. A few days later Catherine emailed instructions to send an overnight cashiers check or money order to an address in California. I asked why I could not use a credit card she said it was like investing in a house, we want to be sure the investment is secure. I said let me think about it. I questioned it but gave them the benefit of the doubt and sent the payment since there was a 60 day money back guarantee. I asked when they would discuss the site details. Catherine said Frank will call with more info. Frank called but did not discuss the site. He started asking me about my personal financial information. I was uncomfortable since I did not know him or understand the need for this. He said he need this information to see if I qualified as a partner for their program. I said EXCUSE ME!!! I have already paid for your program. You ask those questions before you pay for the program. His voice began becoming irritated. I felt he was phishing. I was not comfortable with the questioning and did not understand the need. Our conversation ended with him saying he was going to have a BOD member call that afternoon. No one called. I called Desiree. She said she would check into it. A couple of days past. Desiree told me Frank said he tried to call but could not reach me. The was not voice mail or received call from Frank on my phone. I said Frank did not leave me any messages. A day or two later Frank called and left message, but missed me. I called Frank back, texted and left several messages but no response to-date. April 12th the go live date came and I did not hear from anyone from BioSciMax. I called texted and emailed Desiree and Catherine for 3 days with no response. On April 16, 2019 Catherine called me and I told her I had emailed her requesting a refund of my investment. She said she had been sick. She tried to convince me not to but I said no I want my refund. She said she would call me back that afternoon. I said I hope with the refund details. She said yes. Catherine did not call me back. Mark an executive with BioSciMax called me. He said I would not be able to get my refund back and my account had not been activated. He said my account would not be activated until they get the profile information they need on my personal financial info. I said this information is obtained before you pay for the product or service not after you have paid for it. I have not received what was purchased I want my refund. He also told me they send 100% of the commission check to me and I am expected to send their percentage back to them. That commission process is another red flag. I want my $2,537.00 back.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

This person said he had cash and wanted to by my Motorcycle. He said he looked at another bike and it was junk. I'm selling a 2016 HD Road glide Ultra with 2800 miles. When I refused to buy one he repeatedly asked that I buy a carfax and provided the website. He then said I could email the report to him. He said as soon as he saw the report he had cash to purchase the bike. Not many people have 20K cash on hand, and if you do you would try to get the price lower.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I was contacted through Craigslist about a chair I was selling. The person identified himself as Scott Webber. Said he would mail me a cashier's check for the amount plus $30 to hold the item (total $705). However, someone begam contacting me via another phone number: 347 7866 7836.

I received a check via USPS Priority Mail Express (tracking 9470 1102 0082 9017 4494 33) from a Bill Lawson at Deluxe Corporation, 150 Valley View Ave, Monroe, NY 10950. The check I received was in the amount of $1,980. The check looked fake. The bank was identified as Woodforest National Bank in Shelby, NC. However, in one part of the check, "National" was spelled "Nationa". Moreover, the check had Thomas Jefferson's signature (yes, that Thomas Jefferson). The logo of the check is fuzzy, but comes out clear on a mobile phone picture, which makes me think it was optimized for fraudulent mobile deposit.

I texted the guy and told him the check looked off and that it was for way more. He said it was for movers. That was not part of our deal. I texted him back and told him that I was sending back the check and that the deal was off. I did not hear back from him.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

This is nothing more than a bait and switch scammer. It purports to offer background checks which it does; when the user decides to not pay the fee requested, they offer a lowball number of $1.00. For $1.00, most people, including myself, will agree to the fee and provide the requested credit card info. They charge your card the $1.00 AND an international service fee despite their San Diego , CA USA address! 4 days later, they whack your card for $44.85 AND an additional international service fee of $1.35 with no authorization to do so. It's worth it to them to offer the $1.00 lowball because they will get your credit card information and charge whatever they want! This is scamming at it's absolute worst! Shut them down!

Type of a scam Debt Collections

They called me from a restricted phone number. Left a message with this phone number, the case number, and sounded very serious that I contact them or else I'll get into some kind of legal troubles. When I called and asked for what kind of business this is and why are they contacting me. The woman, name Shirley Thomas, kept saying they didn't contact me. It's I who contacted them. Saying I'll be served due to a breach of contract with Wells Fargo and she's just trying to provide info. Asking me why I didn't answer the mail that they sent to me? Is the account ending in *** is mine? Asking me for my SSN, and while I was still hesitating to provide her the info she said my SSN and asked if that's mine. And before I could think straight, she said she'd notate the account that I refused to litigate and hung up the phone before letting me finish my sentence that I didn't say that and I don't think the account is mine. I called back again, and this time a man introduced himself as Steve said I owed Capital One and put me on hold to look into the account. All in a sudden I heard that same woman talked to me. I said you and Steve are saying different things, and I don't think you guys are legit. She told me I lie and that Mr. Olsen didn't say Capital One. She's being very rude asking me to go do something productive and not to call her again and hung up. I have read too many horrible stories about this kind of businesses. Please investigate and make sure they do business the way they should and NOT lie, cheat, and trick people. Thank you.
