  • scaming me out of 500.00 dollars

    $500.00Unresolved

    On this past Friday my face book Got hacked .I could not get on my page. So a number came up to call ( 877-761-5159 ) and they told me that I would have to pay them 100.00 dollars just to get me back on my page. And then they said that I would have to pay them 400.99 to keep this from happening again. I told them I did not have that kind of money. Because I have a brain tumor and I have to pay med bills ever other month. And I had all ready spent my extra money this month on face book to play some of the games. I am a disabled widow. Than they started to threaten me telling that my friends will be receiving horrible emails from me . I have tried every thing that I know to do to get in touch with face book and I cant get a response from them. still cant get on my page. And I have over 500.00 dollars invested in the games on there. If they wont fix the problem than I want them to refund my money back to my bank account. I am sure the man I talk to is probably the hacker and does not work for face book. But I gave you his number so you can check him out. My problem with face book is the fact that you cant get in touch with them and they promise that your account is secure. Well I beg to differ.

  • Gift and Money scam Facebook

    $0.00Unresolved

    I have been asked for address and cell number to be sent a large 30 kg. Package. I was told it is coming by way of London, Malaysia, India and once there I need to pay an additional fee of $600 to have it shipped to me. I verified address and was told when Bhati BWC Express contacted me to send money by Western Union as soon as possible to a Mr. Donald Paul Weintz in New Delhi, India. Was also told by Howard that there is a large sum of money in package he didn't report, so I need to send money fast so shipper doesn't find. Seems really sketchy that if you pay shipping fees to send and your name on the receipt says "Lawrence" Howard George and more fees need to be paid that something isn't right.
    Checked into his info and his high school was in Ohio, USA but he has always lived in London, England. . RED FLAG.

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.
