Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I received a FEDEX delivery containing a check for $2750. The only instructions were from [email protected] who asked I deposit the money immediately and then text a picture of the deposit slip to 862-307-7608. Later I also received several text messages from Jadawn Kelly ([email protected] / 205-301-2338) stressing the need to follow the instructions. I did not comply.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I applied for a secret shopper position online about a month or two ago. Afterwards, via Messenger, I received notice that I had been hired and would be receiving something in the mail. Recently an envelope arrived with a $2342 check from a Wichita, Kansas food service with instructions to deposit the money into my bank and to send a copy of the deposit slip to [email protected] It directed me to shop at either Office Depot, Safeway, Kroger, Ahold or Vons. At two of those locations I was to purchase 2 reloadable gift cards of $500 each - i.e. $1000 at each location ($2000 total). I was then instructed to send a picture via e-mail of the digits on the back of each card. I was to keep $300 as commission. Another e-mail provided was [email protected] The business name on the bottom of the letter said "Corporate Research International". I did not follow the instructions but, instead, called BBB.

Getting calls multiple times day and night as part of a ‘one ring’ phone scam. The FCC said the point isn’t to get you to answer, it’s to get you to call back.

The charges come from connecting to a premium number overseas and show up on your phone bill. There is a connection fee of around $20 and a $9 per minute charge.

Here are some tips what to do if you get the call:

- If you get a call from a number you don’t recognize, don’t pick up.

- The FCC says before calling unfamiliar numbers make sure the area code isn’t international.

- If you don’t make international calls, you can ask your wireless provider to block outgoing international calls.

- Report scams to BBB.org/scamtracker.

Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange

I got involved chatting online with a woman who claimed to be from Wyoming. She said she was an only child & her late father had a gold inheritance in Nigeria. She needed a next of kin to help her get the money. She talked me into helping her as she seemed kind & honest. She claimed to be a Christian in belief. She got me in contact with a supposed lawyer who needed money in the form of wiring money. After 2 months & a lot of money later to try to switch the address of shipping the gold, I figured it out. The lawyer then kept emailing me then calling and texting me. Lawyer claimed the FBI was contacted then I got an email from a fake FBI agent account from a Gmail address. The fake agent threatened me & my family. I am still missing the money.

We receive a phone call and the person said her first name. She the ask twice if I could hear her which I replied “yes”. She then asked if we received a notice on the change in utility policy. I answered “no”. She then abruptly hung up.

This is very suspicious. When I tried to call back on that number repeatedly, all I received was a busy signal. The caller I’d phone number again was 808 666 9222.
