  • Lottery scam 2018!!!

    $0.00Unresolved

    People claiming to be Patricia and Joseph Busking said they wanted to donate $2million to me. But they wanted me to open an account with EASB bank, East Africa Savings Bank. First off the Busking's are American why the hell would they transfer any money from Africa? Worst part was they used GOD to worm their in to my heart! I'm so angry. They were trying to steal my identity! Jokes on them! I'm poor and have horrible credit! So maybe if they stole my identity it would be a blessing. Maybe they can pay my debts for me as well!

  • Money lost to so called Army Lt. In Kabal.

    $13,000.00Unresolved

    I was contacted bt a Lt. Jack B. Hodges US Army in Kabul.
    We talked via email for several weeks and became friends, after it was determined that we trusted each other he said he had to send his personal belongings home B4 he could get air lifted to the states. He said he had a daughter and his wife died of breast cancer 5 years ago and he sold his house B4 he went to Kabal because he was afraid something would happen to him so her had no address to send his belongings to could he send them to me. So I gave him my address and phone #. He said he took two boxes to the transited place and pd. $2,000.00 to have them registered and that was all he had there could I please pay for the shipping and when he got back to the U.S. he would pay me back so I sent $2,000.00 for that. Then when the boxes got to JFK customers because there was gold in them that he said he got from an old lady in Kabal that he had taken care of.they wanted over $17,000.00 to get through customers or the FBI would be contacted long story short I sent a total of $13,000.00 to a so called agent that would get the boxes sent on to me and this Jack person said he loved me and when he got home he would come to my house to get the boxes and we would be a family with his daughter etc.etc.etc. I never got the boxes ! I as very ashamed to say I gave away my life's savings by using my heart and not my gut. I want other ladies to be aware of this guy or others like him. I have all the paper work from the transit Co. That was to ship from Kabal to JFK also all the copies of the cashiers checks that I sent to pay for all this?

    There was this guy named Lucas Maxey who claimed to be a US soldier. After weeks of chatting, he told me that he bought some valuables for me,blah blah. But then he could not send itmmediately because he's in a mission for peacekeeping i Senegal. He said that I shall contact Reverend Adams George for my full info. But I never did. I feared because Lucad has my info during our conversation.

  • Ripping off Americans

    $0.00Unresolved

    Email to claim 2 million. Donation from Mr. and Mrs. Large, from Nova Scotia. I was to pay for registration and clearance. He has been reported over 5000 times. He is now using Microsoft. Emails are from Hotmail and g mail. How is he still operating? Somebody needs to throw this guy in jail and lose the key. I didn't give him any money but he now has my address and phone number. He is a Nigerian. Very convincing.

Dont believe none of those sweepstakes!- its all a scam!- especially the more popular one!- publishers clearing house!!! Its nothing but a fraud! Their scratchouts are bogus! I scratched off 30,00.00 $ just to be told- u didn't win yet!- only if we pick your number! If not u get nothing!- that's fake! If it was the real one or the lottery I would have gotten my money! Shame on them for wasting my time! But never again! Pch.com avoid it!!!!
