Elite Global Options Scam Update

This is an update to my previous blog posting about this scam company www.eliteglobaloptions.com that does not pay people. So I received an eCheck payment of $6.86 to my PayPal account a few days ago. I have never received this kind of payment before but they said it would take 3-5 business days to go through. I received an email from PayPal this morning letting me know that the payment was rejected by the senders bank. Then I receive this email from support@eliteglobaloptions.com (notice the horrible grammar along with the wrong email address to contact because someone doesn't know how to spell check).......

Due to a bank holiday I was unaware of many of you will experience an email of your funds not going through, and even if you didn't please cancel the payment!

"Do no threat we have your payment and will resend PayPal to PayPal NO FEES and with a bonus for the inconvenience . Now if your payment was send card to paypal please ignore this email, for the rest of you login to paypal click the payment from Tangular Davis and cancel it once done send us a screenshot to suppor@eliteglobaloptions.com with the subj CANCELLED PAYMENT with your login email and paypal.

Again we apologize for the inconvenience and plan to focus more on anything that can affect sending pay. I also want to remind you that this week randomly we will be having same day pay and 24 hour payout which will be announced on the days that we have it, but will also include previous pay to so for example if we have same day pay tomorrow (Tuesday) it will also calculate anything you earned today as well.

Any payments that were earned this past week will be sent out today OR by morning due to a site error that may be sending out double payments."

So I cancelled the payment and took a screenshot just like they said and sent it to them. I then receive this email moments later.....

"thank you guys now because we had a site error that double paid users I want to verify the payments so please login to your account and verify the amount marked paid from the last pay period (if any are marked unpaid) but was issued please alert us

you may also recieve another email of the second payment thats going out today requesting you verify the amount, we already have each users amount owed we just want to verify what you calculate and what we have are the same amount.

again you are verifying the last payment that was sent (the one you just cancelled) you are verifying that amount is marked paid on your payments page if not please alert us! if the correct amount is marked paid email us back and say VERIFIED if not please alert us of the amount along with login email

Our ultimate goal is to make sure everyone gets what they are owed and the correct amount, with the cancelled payment you will get a bonus with it for the mis understanding (bank error)"

I logged into my account and verified the amount. I then asked the owner who was under the Facebook name Tommy Barns. If I could be paid because I did everything that they asked. I was then told that I would be "finished today" I never got paid. Then I tried to log into my account and learned that my account had been deleted. This happened to the woman who recruited me who they also owed money to. They probably deleted everyone's account who they owed money to. 

If you want to read my original report on this company click here and it will take you to that page. Again, this scammer goes by the name Tommy Barns and Tamara Haynes. They probably go by a lot of other names considering the eCheck they sent to me went by the name Tangular Davis.

UPDATE: I was finally paid my $7 minus the .50 PayPal fee this morning. I guess they went back on their word to not take out the fee and to give a bonus for the payment getting messed up. Oh well, at least they paid me. They saved themselves from being reported all over the internet on the rip off websites. However, I will not take these blogs down. My position still stands for people to not sign up with them. I was still paid 2.5 weeks late and people need their money now. 




CONTACT HIM NOW FOR YOUR 5.5 MILLION USD (419 Scam)

Attention:

I am Mrs. Marina Luda, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in Florida USA.My residential address is as follows, 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488 United States,am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $85,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.

So I decided to travel to Washington with all my compensation documents, And I was directed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director to contact Barrister James, who is a representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a member of the Compensation Award Committee, currently in Nigeria and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.

He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $5.5 Million US Dollars,Moreover,Barrister James showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email as one of the beneficiaries on the list he showed me, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister James. Kinldy send your personal details to him to prove your identification.

Full Name:
Home Address:
Occupation:
Phone Number:
Age:
Gender:
country:

You have to contact him directly on this information below.

Compensation Award House
Name :  BARRISTER JAMES LEO
Email:  barristerj33@gmail.com or  barrister.jameschambers@yahoo.com


You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing. The only money I paid after I met Barrister James was just $355 USD for the paper works, take note of that.

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister James so that he can help you to deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.

Thank you and be Blessed.

Elite Global Options SCAM

So I joined in on this work at home opportunity with a company called Elite Global Options over a week ago. It was free to join and consisted of making calls to companies as a "mystery shopper". I was suppose to get paid for each call. I made 2 calls just to test this out and see if I got paid. Lets just say I am extremely glad I did because I never got paid.

The 2 calls I did came to a total of only $7 but its still my money. I was suppose to be paid within 24 hours because they were "test calls" whatever that means. Well my money never came. I contacted the person who told me about this opportunity and it turns out she is owed money as well. Actually, every single person is owed money. I contacted the owner a couple different times and she will not answer me. Now she is not answering anyone.

So this woman goes by 2 different names Tamara Haynes and Tommy Barns. If you click on each name it will bring you to her Facebook accounts. She has another Facebook under the name Tamara Haynes as well. She is a complete scammer and I had a bad feeling about her to begin with. Especially cause she would not ever speak to me, even when people were supposedly being paid. I knew something was seriously up when she posted a video talking about how she didn't have any money.

I also have heard that she has a few followers who don't want to believe she's a scam and are talking shit. Well I hate to tell you this but if people have not been paid WHEN THEY ARE TOLD THEY ARE GOING TO BE PAID is a fucking scam! Even if I do eventually get paid which I highly doubt I am still going to call it a scam because of that exact reason. Stay far away from this person as I am sure she will have more scams going on.

Golden Hub Inc AKA My Millionaire Mentor

So I have been seeing this email that's going around by a company called Golden Hub Inc. This email is going out to people who have posted their resume online looking for work. I will post this email below and you will see that this is pretending to be a real job. This is not a job but a some kind of "mentoring program". This company is clearly affiliated with My Millionaire Mentor www.mymillionairementor.co. In order for you to work with this company you need to pay $49. It has a constant gimmick saying that they only have 7 spots left at that price. Here is a copy of the email online including the links in the email so you can see that Golden Hub Inc is really My Millionaire Mentor.

Golden Hub Inc.

Dear Applicant,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been selected for the position of Administration at Golden Hub Inc.! We had many qualified candidates, but you seemed to be best fit for our growing business.

Your appointment will be effective after your confirmation. We have some rules and regulations. Read all documents before your confirmation message.

Rules for Probationary Period

Job Facilities

You should report within 72 hours.
We are looking forward to your joining our team and invite you to let us know if you need additional information or have any questions.

Sincerely,
Human Resources Team
Golden Hub Inc.


The 2 links in this email go to mymillionairementor.co and have no information about rules for probationary period or job facilities. This email I would consider to be a complete scam. It is clearly made to look like a real job offer. This could very well be an affiliate who is sending out these emails but based on the reviews I have read I would stay away from this company.

Arbitration Collection Agencies

You or someone you know with either a very old debt or a non existent debt may have gotten a call from a company who has purchased the debt claiming to be not a collection agency but an arbitration firm. They usually will say that they are with the litigation department and that they will be sending someone out to serve you with papers about a lawsuit. They will use all these technical legal terms to get you scared enough into paying the debt. Each state has a different statute of limitations for debt but where I live in NH it is 3 years. This means after this time they cannot take you to court over this and these companies know this. They just want you to make a payment arrangement because that way it reopened the statute so NEVER do this.

No matter what these people will tell you you are not going to go to jail for not paying a debt even if it is valid. Chances are good that these people contact you just to scare you with no intentions on suing you. If you happen to answer your phone when they call just tell them you are expecting legal papers by tomorrow and if you don't have them you will file suit against them for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. This will sometimes make them go away because they figure you know what your talking about. If this continues report them to the FTC and contact an attorney if you want to take it to court. Violations of the FDCPA are a minimum of a $1000 fine for each violation. If they are severe enough it will cost them much more and possible criminal action will be sought.

Times are tough for people and these collection agencies that purchase very old debt know that if they follow the law its going to be hard to get people to pay. That's why they represent themselves as an arbitration firm because they feel that once people hear that they are going to be more willing to pay. This is considered extortion which is illegal and NEVER let anyone do this to you. If you have been harassed by a company like this then your best bet is to contact an attorney. If this company is making threats about hurting you or saying that they are police officers then you want to contact your local police station.

Gamestop

So the other day I went to Gamestop to pick up a new game. I had a couple of old games I wanted to trade in so this was the only reason I went to this store. I usually order my games and other things off of Amazon.com because its easier to just order things from them instead of going to the store to get something that may or may not be there. I have not been to Gamestop in ages but I was not impressed at all with my experience.

So I went into the store and a clerk promptly greeted me. I found the game that I wanted and we went over to the register so I could buy it and trade in the 2 games I brought along. They gave me $11 trade in for the games I had which I already knew because I looked it up online. Gamestop never gives you good money for your games but I figured anything was fine because I beat one and never played the other one.

So when I checked out I noticed that the sales reps were automatically adding on the replacement plan without asking people like they use to do. They also were trying to constantly upsell by asking you to put money down for games that were going to come out the beginning of next year. When I visited Gamestop before they would ask you if you would like to pre order games but it was nothing like the experience I had a few days ago. I do not want to feel pressured into buying things and I don't want to be ripped off by these replacement plans that no one ever needs.

I would like to warn everyone not to go to Gamestop anymore unless you want to spend money that you don't need to and feel like your entering a used car dealership with the pressures of sales people. This is not worth it to me even if I can save a few dollars by trading in other games.

Find New Work (Scam Job)

This is an email I received offering me a "job". This is a scam and if I took this what would happen is I would receive packages bought with stolen money and then repackage them and send them to another country. A lot of online merchants will only ship to the US therefore scammers in other countries need an address in this country to have these packages sent to. A lot of the times you will need to pay upfront to have the packages sent and then they will promise to reimburse you. If you receive a check from them it will be a fraudulent check for sure. Even if you don't need to spend any money upfront when the authorities find out about these stolen goods you will be the one they come after. If you receive an email like this delete it and do not contact them. I never posted a resume on any website but they figure that a lot of people do that are searching for a job to make it sound legit. Email was from claudiamangona@heyda.arnetbiz.com.ar with a reply to address of kodinovevgen@gmail.com.

This "job" is a mystery shopper, they tell you to do a job that requires almost no work and then they send you a check. They tell you that you need to put the check into your account and then wire them some money back from it. The check usually clears by the next day because it looks like a legit payroll check. Same thing as all these scams jobs is the check is found to be a fraud after a couple of weeks and you are then responsible for that money.

CONTACT DHL EXPRESS COMPANY FOR YOUR ATM CARD WORTH $4.8MILLIONS USD

So this is an example of a 419 scam. This is an email that I got from someone telling me to contact DHL which is a legit shipping company with an email address that is linked to the scammer. This DHL company that you will email is a fraud. They will tell you to wire over some money for taxes and fees. Then they will keep asking you for more and more money until finally you are broke. Do not fall for this. NEVER send any money to someone that is telling you they will give you more money as soon as you do that. It will never happen.

Dear Friend,

This is to bring to your notice that I have been able to pay the
re-activation fee and the delivery of your ATM Card. I paid it because
the ATM Card worth of $4.8M USD has less than Seven days to expire and
when it expires, the money will lost to the Government treasury
account . With that I decided to help you pay off the money so that
the ATM Card will not expire, because I trust that when you receive
your ATM Card definitely you must pay me back my expenditure and even
compensate me for helping you.

Congratulations! (Lottery Scam)

This is another attachment email I received. File name is Euro-Million Lottery.pdf and it looks very official when you open it with watermarks and everything. However, I never entered any lottery and the email address in this email is associated with scams. The way this works is you contact them to claim your winnings and they tell you that you need to send them an upfront fee for some taxes. Once you send that to them they tell you that you need to send more money. They will keep doing this until you don't have anymore money to send. Email address that sent this file to me is claimdepartments2166@gmail.com.

I NEED YOUR URGENT REPLY (419 Scam)

I got this message as an attachment file called From Mrs.docx. I don't recommend you open any attachments from people you don't know but since it was a document file I figured I was safe. Plus I have really good antivirus programs.

From Mrs. Linah Mohohlo
The Governor of the Bank of Botswana.
Reply-To: mohohlo001@gmail.com

My Dearest in Christ,
Firstly I would like to introduce myself; my name is Mrs. Linah Mohohlo from Botswana. I am the governor of the Bank of Botswana you can view the profile on the panel members at( http://www.africaprogresspanel.org/panelmember/linah-mohohlo/ ) and read about me.  Please I know this may come to you as a surprise, because you did not know me. I sincerely need your assistance discretely because of my high business associations, which is the reason why I write to you on a personal level and through divine direction. It is my desire to have a genuinely personal relationship with you.

I deposited the sum of USD$10.5M (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S.Dollars) with Finance/bank presently. These funds emanated as a result of an over-invoiced contract which I executed with the Bank of Botswana. Though I am the person who approved this contract but I
honestly never knew at the time that it had been over invoiced. I am now afraid that the government of Botswana might start to investigate on contracts I awarded; presently this money is still with the bank here in South Africa. I suffer from cancer and recently my Doctor informed me that due to my poor health condition I would not be able to stay alive past the next three months due to the cancer. None the less what disturbs me mostly is the stroke I suffered. Having known my condition I decided to donate these funds to a church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.
I want an individual person or church organization that will use the funds for churches, orphanages, research centers and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God ismaintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives, I took this decision because I have a child that will inherit this money but my son cannot carry out this work alone. I therefore decided to use some of the money to work for God and live some for my son to have
a better future. My only son is only just 15 year old now and having to grow up without a father he has a low maturity, hence the reason for me taking this bold decision to ask for your assistance. I am not afraid of death hence I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.
I would like you to understand that me contacting you is a divine direction from God; As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact information of the Finance/bank.Any delay in your reply
will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here and Please I will like you to contact me immediately you receive this mail so that I will instruct the Finance/bank to transfer this fund into your account.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Mrs. Linah Mohohlo and only Son Favor. (mohohlo001@gmail.com)
God’s favor is sufficient for me

operation.



This money when added with my personal savings is around $17,250,000.00usd(seventeen million two hundred and fifty Thousand United States Dollars Only), I deposited it in one of the secured bank
in Turkey more  priority should be given to  the good work of the lord, especially the orphanage, the needy and to help the motherless.


Presently, I have informed my Attorney, about my decision in WILLING this fund to you, you are to get back to me immediately if you are
interested in carrying out this task, so that I will instruct you on how to get in contact with my attorney and my account officer.


I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to
others should in case I did not survive this major operation I am about to go through now, but all I need now is prayers.
If you are willing to handle this fund for the purpose mentioned above, get back to me with the below details to enable me prepare my
LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT IN YOUR NAME as my next of kin and the rightful beneficiary to the fund.

Mrs.  Janet Ann



ShareASale Review

ShareASale is a great way for bloggers to make money by promoting products or services. When someone signs up for or buys something through your affiliate link then you get paid. The amount you get paid depends on the merchant. Some of the merchants pay only per sale but others pay per lead. This is a great website for affiliate marketers and unlike other sites they have you promote legit well known companies.

Merchants can use this service as well. You can list your company on this website and then other people will promote your company's products/services on their blog or website. This is a great way to drive traffic and sales to your website. You can even choose whether or not to approve affiliates that request to promote your company.

If you interested in learning more about ShareASale visit their website at www.shareasale.com.

MTurk Requesters

So I have been scrolling through some MTurk hits trying to find some good ones. The surveys available right now I don't qualify for or I have already completed so those are out. So I looked through the most available ones and I see a lot of these 1 cent hits. Now I don't have an issue with 1 cent hits if they go real quick (30 seconds max). However, I was looking through some of these and they are going to take 5+ minutes to do each!

These requesters need to understand that even though we are working from home and not using gas, we still need to be able to make some extra money. Some people use MTurk to eat and pay bills and there is no way they are going to do that with this little money. Now I know that some of these requesters offer bonuses for people who do tons of hits with them with very little errors. That's nice of them but to pay so little in the first place is a real punch in the face. I really wish that the requester who had us do the voice recordings which took 10 seconds for 5 cents each would come back!

So it looks like today is going to be a Humanatic day. Humanatic pays you to listen to recorded phone calls and mark them accordingly. This takes 30 second to do, maybe a little longer when you first join. If any of you would like to learn more about and join go to www.humanatic.com,

Identity Theft Protection - IdentityForce

Having your identity stolen is one of the worst things that can happen to you. It can ruin your credit and in the worst case even get you into criminal trouble if the thief was good enough to get an ID in your name and decided to get arrested then skips out on bail. The cops then locate you and think that the person on the run is you. IdentityForce is the solution to this problem. 

What this does is monitor your identity and then let you know if anything is happening so you can stop it before it starts. It monitors your address, credit report, court records, and several other things that you can view on their website. This company is based in Framingham Massachusetts and they have great reviews and an A+ with the BBB. Try the service out free for 14 days and then if you want to stay with it costs less then $20 a month. You can learn more and sign up at www.identityforce.com


Employment Opportunity (Fake Job Scam)

So this right here is an email I got from a scammer just sending out emails to random people. This person is offering a "job" as a package manager. This involves being involved with criminal activities such as receiving stolen property and then re-boxing them and shipping them off to the scammers who are most likely overseas. You may need to pay yourself to ship these packages off to them with the "promise" that you will be reimbursed (which you never will be). They may send you money ahead of time and if the check isn't fake then consider yourself lucky. Instead of you wasting money and being arrested you will just be arrested for receiving stolen property and shipping it off to the thieves. If you receive an email like this, delete it. Email address listed as a reply to with this email was VladislavE74@gmail.com. If you got this email its a very good chance that there's different email addresses associated with it.

Car Dealership Service Department

Unless your car is under warranty or has a problem that only a dealership can take care of DO NOT send it to the dealership for issues. First off most of the time you have to leave your car for a couple of days for something that can be taken care of in a few hours. Second of all the expense you will occur with taking your car to the dealership is 2 to 3 times the expense you would have at an honest garage. Third thing is plain and simple they lie.

I had a recall on my car and took it to the dealership to be done. After it was done they told me my car needed several things and would cost several hundred dollars to do this. I took it to my mechanic and it turned out this was total BS. They got me to come into the dealership for the recall and they wanted me to spend all kinds of money doing stuff that my car did not need. If this happens to you tell them you will have your regular mechanic look at your vehicle, don't agree to have these services done.

It seems to me that car dealerships feel like they have the right to keep your car and give you the slowest service possible. If a regular garage mechanic did this then they would be out of business real quick. Give it to a honest mechanic that can get your work done in a reasonable time. If you are looking for local mechanic check you can visit websites like www.yelp.com to search for them and for reviews. You can also just ask around, the best places are sometimes found by word of mouth.

Scam Job Yunnan Copper

A friend of mine was contacted a couple of months ago from a scammer pretending to be from a company called Yunnan Copper which is a legit company out of China. They said that his job was going to be to contact customers of theirs to collect past due balances. They said he would be paid a percentage of what he collects along with $4100 a month salary. He sent me copies of these documents that they sent to him and they all looked very legit and professional so this was a scammer that knew what they were doing.

The contact email he had for them was ycl.recruit@yunancopper.com. Now www.yunnancopper.com is the legit company website that was created back in 2007. This domain email that the scammer used was www.yunancopper.com which is a fake website that was a clone of the real one but when I did a whois on them I noticed it was just created February of 2016. The website has since been taken down. This is a scam that most people can fall for since the email address was just missing one n and that can be overlooked very easily.

They gave him a name of a "customer" to contact about an outstanding balance and the customer seemed very willing to send the payment. They wanted my friend to have the customer send the check to his personal name and he was to deposit the money and then keep 5% for himself and wire them the rest. He told them that he was going to wait 2 weeks until the payment cleared and they seemed ok with that. While he was waiting for the check to clear he asked about the base monthly salary and they told him he would be paid when it was due and just blew him off. He found out that the check was fraudulent and when he contacted them about it they never got back to him.

This is a very common scam when people think that they have a legit work from home job. The scammers will send you a check for a large amount of money and have you deposit it in your account. Most of the time the check will be available the next day because it looks like a legit check and most banks will credit your account before the check actually clears to make it convenient for their customers instead of having them waiting 2 weeks. Then once the bank discovers the check is fake your responsible for it and not the scammers and the money you wired them is long gone. Stay clear from this and any other company that wants you to put a check into your account for more then they owe you and wire them the rest. No legit business will do this.

Transaction WUMT-MYR791126 (419 scam)



This is an email that I received pretending to be from Western Union. This email was interesting in the sense that it is a picture instead of any text being typed into the body. That is why I could not just copy and paste it so I had to attach this photo. What I am hoping is that if someone is questioning whether or not to send these people money they will do a reverse image search and find this. The email address associated with this email is unwumtcenter@my.com and the phone number is +601126433169.

Shoppingbywm.com Secret Shopper Scam

I came across a recent secret shopper scam that I wanted to let everyone know about. It looks like they have several different websites but the 2 I found out about are www.limitedmallsinc.com and more recently www.shoppingbywm.com. This scam company is looking for people to do secret shopper jobs. Then they are sent a check of around $1900+ and told to keep a certain amount and withdraw the rest and western union it. ANY LEGIT COMPANY WILL NEVER HAVE YOU DO THIS. The check then bounces and leaves the victim responsible.

This seems to be a common scam that has went on for years. If you are involved with a company that asks you to do this get out immediately and do not deposit the check. Peoples bank accounts have been frozen by these checks leaving them not able to access their money. The phone number associated with this scam is 205-598-1005 which seems to be linked to both of those websites. If you go to those websites you will see the same generic login page. If you call the phone number it is just a automated system that is a dead end. Don't be a victim and stay away from this.

Palm Beach Research Group

So I was looking online the other day for potential scam companies to investigate and I came across a company out of Florida (not surprising) called Palm Beach Research Group www.palmbeachgroup.com. This is a company that offers people subscriptions to various publications they have starting at $199 all the way up to $3,000. In my opinion these publications aren't worth any money. They are just out there to try and entice people to sign up with them and look very gimmicky.

This company has several complaints from people saying that they signed up for the service and cancelled during their money back guarantee period only to have the company charge them anyways. This is typical for companies like this. No legit company is going to charge this amount of money for some stupid articles that pitch other products in them with no useful information. A company that is based out of Florida is just another red flag since Florida seems to be a haven for scammers. If scammers are sued in the state of Florida and get a judgment on them Florida has an unlimited homestead exemption meaning that someone can own a 10 million dollar home and a judgment creditor can not touch it. Good deal for scammers, raw deal for victims.

My advice to everyone is not to sign up for them. There is plenty of useful information on the internet for free. This is a company that is charging people for complete nonsense and its disgusting with how they are getting away with it.

Bye Bye American Express!

So several years ago I had an American Express card and I closed it out in 2011 with a few thousand dollar balance on it. I paid it off a few weeks ago and received a final bill of about $10 which was interest that I owed. Now since I paid the card off my online account was closed out so in order for me to pay this I needed to send a check which I was willing to do. On the statement it said that I needed to put my full account number on the check which I did not have so I called them up to get it. This should have been simple enough but when I finally got connected to a customer service rep they told me that they don't give that information out over the phone. I asked how they expect me to pay it and the woman decided to hang up on me for whatever reason.

So I called back and needed to put up with their automated system bullshit which doesn't work cause it doesn't understand you most of the time and it just hangs up on you. I pressed the 0 key 10 times and I finally got connected with someone. This rep was more helpful then the last one. He opened up my account information and saw that it was in fact closed and I had no way to pay this bill. Because of this he credited my account and told me I was all set with a zero balance. 

My advice to American Express is if you want people to pay their fucking bill you need to give them the information so they can pay you. You don't tell someone they owe money and then refuse to give them their account number so they can pay you. What kind of way to do business is this? Oh well, im done with them. Ill never get a card from them again. Bye bye American Express!

For Mutual Benefit (419 scam)

For Your Urgent Attention.

 

I am Peter Douglas, Director Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agent in Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport Atlanta GA We are rounding up for the first quarter of the auditing, all abandon Consignment in US Airports are being transferred to our facilities here for inspection and confiscation. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned luggage on your name which was transferred to our facility here in Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money, rather it was declared as  personal effect to avoid diversion by the Diplomatic Agent also the Diplomat inability to pay for Non Inspection Fees.

 

On my assumption, the boxes will contain more that $6M and the consignment is left in storage house till today through a Courier Dispatch Service. The Consignment is a metal box with weight of about 242LBS (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) Effective capacity: 680 L)Approximately.

 

The details of the consignment including your name the official document from United Nations office in London are tagged on the Metal Trunk box.

 

I want to use my good office and clear the Consignment and deliver it to you. If you WILL ACCEPT MY CONDITION and want us to transact the delivery for mutual benefit, you should provide Your Name, Phone Number and Full Address, to cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official document including the name of nearest Airport around you and other details. You should send the required details to me for onward delivery.

 

All communication must be held extremely confidential I can get everything concluded within 24 - 48hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery. But it must be on the condition that you will give me 30% of the amount contained in the boxes and i must get assurance from you concerning my 30% before i will proceed.

 

I want us to transact this business and share the money, since the shipper have abandoned it and ran away. I will pay for the Non inspection fee and arrange for the boxes to be moved out of this Airport to your address, Once i am through, i will deploy the services of a secured shipping Company to provide the security it needs to your doorstep or i can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble. But the sharing formula will be 70% for you and 30% for me, you have to assure me of my 30% do respond to me if you are interested to conclude this with me.

 

Please reply to my personal email address only: perterdouglas2@gmail.com

FAX: 233 277139322

Greetings,

Am Felix Adeyemi, director cash processing unit, united bank for Africa [UBA the only bank appointed by the A.U. Members lead by President Robert Mugabe.

 

Because of the frauds going on in West Africa countries where some innocent beneficiaries were asked to pay in advance before receiving their money owed to them.

 

The above Africa union held meeting in Ghana and resolve to pay all beneficiaries in cash through means of diplomatic courier service. We receive your files from international monetary fund (I.M.F.) as one of the

beneficiaries.

 

Take note:Three thousand united state dollars (usd$3,000)have been mapped out for all expenses in taxes and other doccumets that matters.

Therefore, I want you to bear it in mind that your total fund will not be

five million five hundred thousand united state dollars ($5.500,000.00) but five million four hundred and ninety seven thousand united state

dollars ($5.497,000.00).

 

If anybody tells you that he is paying you in bank draft or telegraphic money transfer both western union and money gram, do not listen to him or her because due to this frauds no international bank honors our remittance instruction any more that is why we settled to pay in cash through courier.

 

We also received a security report that you paid the fraudsters who have been deceiving you, telling you that they are going to send this money to you.

 

Dear as a senior banker, controlling this cash payment now, I advise you not to waste your money by paying any body in advance again, and if you just follow my instruction, you will receive your money in three days time.

Your fund will now be packaged in box and take to the diplomatic courier service for immediate shipment, I will also send the picture of the box by attachment to you to see how the money is packed, and I will send you more mails to give you more information for you to know the

genuineness of this transaction.

 

Therefore, do forward your home address and direct phone number to this E-Mail(adeyemif189@gmail.com)

Got A Judgment On A Scammer?

Were you fortunate enough to be able to locate your scammer and take him or her to court and win a judgment against them? You may have thought that once you get the judgment you were going to get the money you were awarded right? Well the answer to that is no. If they do not pay you voluntarily then you are going to need to take legal actions against them if you want to see your money. In order to do this it is going to cost you time and money and you need to have the knowledge to enforce this judgment yourself.

If you don't want to do this then you can hire a judgment enforcer or attorney to do this. There needs to be assets and/or wages that you can get at from the defendant and they will find out if there is. Once that happens then they can do a wage garnishment, put liens on property, and freeze bank accounts. Whatever is allowed by that particular state law.

A website to visit if you are looking to get your judgment enforced is www.judgmentbuy.com. They work with judgment enforcers and attorneys that will take a look at your case and if it looks like defendant has money help you collect it.

Bradley Richard Crandall (Loan Scam)

So a good friend of mine recently started looking for a loan and was contacted by a person who went by the name of Bradley Richard Crandall saying that he could give him a loan. In order for him to get a loan he would need to pay $250 upfront via money gram. Once this person gets his $250 he takes off and he never see's his loan or his $250 again. If you are contacted by this person or anyone else who says they will loan you money but you need to pay something upfront they are all lying to you and trying to scam you out of money. I want to let people know of this scammer and his email address is bradleyrcrandallinvestmentllc@gmail.com. This is just one email address and I am sure this person has several more and several other names they go by. There are several people out there who try this scam so make sure you avoid this by NEVER PAYING UP FRONT FOR A LOAN.

It said that I had won 1.5 million dollars from the Warren Buffet Foundation and to contact them with more information. This is a short and sweet email that more of these scammers are now using. They figure anyone who responds to them is going to be interested in what they are offering. I sent them a message indicating that I was interested and here is the message I received from them earlier today.

They also included a picture of Warren Buffet and his wife.


This is a COMPLETE scam email.This email is not from Warren Buffet. They are simply using Warren Buffets name and good character to attempt and gain your trust. What will happen is if I responded with my information they would start contacting me giving me a name to send the money to via western union. They also use the green dot money pack cards now for a scam so that could be their preferred method as well. Whatever it is they will eventually want you to send over money to receive your money. They will say it is a fee or taxes or both. Then if you send over the money they will then say that there is another fee to deal with and then the money is yours. These 419 scammers have done this to several people and forced them into bankruptcy. People have sent
