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.
