My mother was contacted using Silver Singles dating website. Arthur Sabatay contacted her stating that he was in Lexington, VA and owned a company in Glendale, CA. My wife and myself are concerned because we are unable to find any valid information about this man or company. My mother has been scammed before. We located the website that his is using and is very similar to one in Texas, using the same names and pictures.

"Luna" befriended me on an app called Lex and recommended me to her sugar momma "Makayla". I talked to Makayla using the TextfFree app with a fake phone number since I didn't completely trust her. Makayla offered a photo of herself to seem transparent. She was suspicious, but personable enough to carry a conversation. She promised financial support, but at the request that I send her $50 via Paypal first. At that point I knew she was a scammer. Luna and Makayla had different texting styles, but both used the word "to" as a proposition when it should've been used as an adverb (e.g. "I like you to" or "I'm tired to"). Luna claims to work at a Hooters and Makayla claims to live in North Carolina. Luna's profile picture is that of a young naturally red haired woman, and Makayla's photo was also that of a naturally red haired woman.

So I got an Instagram direct message from a woman named “ Gabbie Harris” the conversation was ok and friendly until she asked me if I’m Interested in being her “text buddy” for $600 weekly allowance, I thought it was strange and proceeded to ask why, then she explained she’s going through a divorce after her “bestie” and husband were having relations , I thought that’s sad but continued to talk to her, she asked me about myself , asked her about herself , then she continued to ask if I needed a sugar mom, I replied I wouldn’t mind it, then put down step by step how it works, then mentioned I needed to do some favor for her, I asked what kind of favor and she proceeded to talk about how she donates to orphanages and would need help gifting them, after that I was like that’s nice , she then asked for my Wells Fargo email and full name to send the money to and said she’d send $700 , then I remember she said $600 before ? So why is it changed all the sudden, after that I didn’t text back because I don’t give up my information like that and it was just sketchy , I’ve now been ignoring her .

He offered to send me a gift since he would travel to Dubai for work and that package was detected for which I had to pay customs in Malaysia because he sent cash and that caused problems, I use photos of a person who lives in another city and that his phone number is not where he said he lived but is located in British Columbia.

I checked the phone on the internet and it told me that it had that location South Kamloops, Bc, Canada, as well as its supposed photos and they are of a person who lives in another country whom I contacted and tells me that he is unaware of that situation.

This happened in 2015

I was so embarrassed and humiliated to even tell anyone and I don’t have much information now I only remember he used the name Terry he friend me online we talked for a few months and then he said he would pay down my Credit cards he would pay off all the Bounces and Al I would have to do is take out the cash advance amount on them and send it to him Western Union I do remember most of my card I could take 1300 or a little’s not like just Sent it to him. My cards were all paid off 100% I was so I took all the cash Advance cell and sent him all off them . So say I had 15.000 in debt and it cost me 5,000 to get 10,000 off of it .it was a really good deal .But weeks later everything was reversed back on plus all the cash Advance that I took out on them so now I was maxed out and over on all cards now up to $20.000 .

We always need to remember if it sounds to good to be true.” It’s a scam “ at this time I am still trying to fix my Credit .

I was messaging someone I had just met on an app for queer women called Lex named *******. She mentioned that she had a “sugar mamma” and asked me if I had one. I said no, and she asked if I would like to be in contact with her’s. I said sure, as I was curious and had heard about sugar mammas before and felt it would be more legitimate if it was being referred to me by someone else as opposed to an app or direct message. I messaged her first. The alleged sugar mamma said her name is ********** she’s 56 years old, is from Florida, and has 2 companies of her own: one in construction and another unknown. She said she has no family, as her parents died in a car accident when she was 16 and she lived with an uncle who abused her until she finally left because of a boyfriend she was with at the time who got her into cryptocurrency and how to make money online. The phone number she uses is ###-###-####. She asked me questions about myself and answered any questions I asked her, which made it seem legitimate at first. She asked me what I wanted and about my personal values.

This is all occurring rapidly within hours of first contacting her. She asked me my name (first name only), where I was from, and other general questions. Then she asks me if I want to be her sugar baby. I said I was open to it, but wanted to know if she had any social media first and what she expected from her sugar babies. She said she did not have social media because she had been scammed by sugar babies in the past, and that she only expects pictures of me (primarily non-sexual selfies, but she also stated some sexual photos would be expected). She then asked me how much I wanted from her as a first deposit, and I said I wasn’t sure. Because she had seemed real at this point, I confessed that I was hesitant of course to use any banking information and would prefer to use a third party like venmo or Zelle. She claimed that she would be taxed heavily if she used those, and preferred to do a direct deposit into my account of $1000. She requested that out of the $1000 she sends me, I send $800 to a church she goes to that supports the homeless, and tells me she’s a christian. She asked me for my login information for one of my banking sites. I told her I wasn’t comfortable with that, but wanted to use another checking account I had that was completely empty. She was okay with that because she said she understood where I was coming from.

There was another issue with my account being closed, so I couldn’t use it. I told her I would likely have to wait until Monday for the issue to be resolved if she could wait. She said I could just use the other account with my savings in it and linked to my parents financial information because I can trust her, but I told her no I wasn’t comfortable with that. The next few days, she constantly asked me throughout the day if the account was ready yet, in which I case I kept telling her no. She has continued to ask me if the banking issue has been resolved, and I kept telling her the updates in regards to the situation without divulging valuable information.

She had sent me two selfies of herself, so I entered one of them into google and found that it was from an Instagram influencer’s page, someone who had a different name, age, and everything. The influencer was verified and had many followers, and even had a story on her page warning people about fake sugar mammas who were using her pictures. I told **********” that I found this and asked what was going on. She claimed that influencer was a scammer and that “this is ridiculous, I can’t believe she stole my identity” and claimed to have reported it. Both selfies were from this page.

I told “*********” that I did not want to continue this anymore because I am “busy with school” and she said she understood and was nice about it. However, she continues to text me asking how my day is and if I fixed the account issue yet. And today, she asked me what my mobile carrier is out of the blue. I will be blocking this number.
