Perry told me I was hired to be his admin. He got my information from a job posting. He sent a text, telling me he was sending me over $4085 dollars. And will pay me $500. a week from that to run chores, etc.
No money, only promises have transpired.
I applied for a mover job on Craigslist and was told that the position had been taken but there was a position for a personal assistant to run errands for 600 to 700 a wk Well I didn't check my email for a few days and all of a sudden there was fedex at my door at 7 in the morning and it was a big envelope and so I opened it and it was a check for 5000 dollars. I took it to my bank and was going to deposit it and they told me they had gotten ahold of Lewis county title company and was informed the check was fraudulent and put my bank on hold to talk to their fraud dept.Show more

Starting on February 12, 2017, I fell for a scam. On that day, a facebook friend and fellow online marketer claimed that if I pay him money to go towards processing fees, he would give me a larger investment, a new vehicle, and a spot in his business. That same February 12, I clearly told him that I was just fired from my job two days earlier, he ignored what I said and still persisted in ripping me off. After paying all of the fees, even paying him the $1000 that my mom gave me to pay off part of my student loan debt, he kept on asking me for more money. On March 11, 2017, my mom found out that I gave him the money instead of paying off part of the loan debt. I was temporarily kicked out of the house. While I was homeless, I let Mims know that because of your actions, I was kicked out of the house, he still insisted that I pay him. Since March 12, the day my mom let me come back in the house, I have only been told to sleep on the floor downstairs, and only drive my car when I am going to work, or tutoring a high school student. Thus, he ruined my relationship with my mom. I told him that I cannot pay any bills because I am broke and will get caught by my mom if I do. He still asks for more money for processing fees. I have come to a conclusion that he is a scam artist who has also scammed others, and his only bottom line is his money, or other people's hard earned money.Show more
