  • Misleading advertisement and refusal to refund me

    $117.00Unresolved

    Plasma lighter on Facebook misled me , they stated buy 2 lighter for $29 each and get one free get free shipping. I was charged $117 and when I realized that I was called the company at (844) 205-1246. The person told me that I was charged for all 3 lighters and shipping also. I told her that I was misled and I was a refund. She said she can't do that and that I must return the lighters when I get them for a full refund. I asked why she can't reverse the charges that were posted few minutes ago.

  • Facebook Scam Winning Federal Funds

    $0.00Unresolved

    I received a friend request from a friend of mine Sue Moirz Zimmerman( or Susan Zimmerman Moitz) and I accepted. Whoever it was went on to ask how I was and to tell me how happy she was and asked if I had received any money from the federal government Agencies . She went on to say she had received $330,000 and she saw my name on the same list . She asked me to contact her (Kate Marin) agent by friending her which I also did. The fraudulent Susan then asked me to send a message right now which I started but never sent . Before I could send "Karen Marin" sent me a message asking how she could help.

    As a victim of fraud before I decided to call My friend to confirm her friend request. She reminded me we were already friends on Facebook and told her what happened . I contacted Facebook and unfollowed her and unfriend her as well as report The incident .

  • Scammed by imitation Blake Shelton Facebook page

    $0.00Unresolved

    I made a comment on the real Blake Shelton's Facebook page.The next day after going to his concert and making the comment someone from his page personal messaged me claiming to be Blake Shelton. Looking back it was another Blake Shelton imitation page that messaged me back. We messaged for a while and then they asked for my phone number and we started texting. After a long while, they turned the talk to "can I do them a favor?". I needed to hold on to something for them and they would come get it from me and pay me back. They said their lawyer was going to give me 20% of the money in the briefcase to do the favor. I first had to pay for the shipping of the item I was to hold onto and had to send money through the Western Union to get it shipped to me. They gave me the name Denise Wesner for who I needed to send the money at 229 E Grant St. McAdoo PA 18237. They told me I needed to send $400 cash through the Western Union. I have the imitation Facebook page and hours of text and messaging that shows in detail what happened. I don't know how to attach it. When I didn't send the money they got upset. I told them I didn't think is was legit and that I was going to leave but they continued to text me (asking how much money can I send?) And calling me and hanging up.

I also fell for the Moses Mims scam, this is my unfortunate story: Since February 12, 2017, I have been scammed by an individual in Detroit, MI named Moses Mims. Moises Mims was a fellow online marketer and Facebook friend. He has been a friend since at least September 2014. I told him that I just got fired two days prior, I don't think I can afford to do this, he still persisted. He told me that if I send him some money through PayPal, he would let me join his company and let me work for him at $100/hr. Unfortunately, he kept on asking for money, which he still is doing as of right now, claiming that the money is going towards processing fees. Unfortunately, I lost almost $2000, including $1000 that my mom gave to me in the form of a check that was supposed to go towards me paying off part of my student loan debt. I was also temporarily kicked out of the house because my mom found out that I gave the money to the scammer named above on March 11. While I was homeless, I told Mims that because of your actions, this is what happened, he still asked me to wire him more money for the processing fees. As of right now, my mother let me come back to live with her, but I can no longer drive where I want. I can only use the car to drive to work and tutor a high school student. Additionally, I can only sleep on the floor downstairs, and my mother does not trust me in regards to finances, or in general. Today (April 8, 2017) my credit card account was closed since the balance was to low and debt too high. I told Mims about my dilemma, but he kept on asking for more money. I have been pushed into deeper debt because of this scam and have no idea what to do next.

Let's use logic.I had a Youtube subscriber that was trolling my account because they didn't like my point of view.They posted photos of a mugshot from 10 years ago fo an incident that I wasn't even convicted of to smear my reputation.Now they take to ripoff report to say I stole $700 from them ? They say that I'm a racist ? Vicky sounds like a white woman to me,if my videos on youtube support my views;why would vicky (I believe she is white a by the sound of her name ) go to a "well known "black racist" for anything ? Now she says "Joshua" I stated this persons name in a Youtube video so this is how this inidvidual got that name of that inidividual. This is nothing more than a smear campaign by an angry youtube troll I just reported today for weeks of harassment on FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE.I don't know anyone named Vicky this is nothing but a lie.You should be ashamed of yourself. This is the Youtube troll called "White Witch"and on facebook they are going by a fake account named called "Tata Kaka" with my mugshot from 10 years ago from an incident I wasn't even convicted of.Now I hope you guys can see that this person is a wack job and a pathological liar. Dear white people don't let this white person paint you all to be evil because I believe there are some good white people out here. DON'T BELIEVE THE LIES.
