They wanted to buy our guitar that was posted on craigslist for $1800.00. They said that was fine and that want to pay through paypal so we said okay. The man texted back every couple of minutes and said the funds had been taken out of his account and that we should get a email from paypal to confirm which we got a fake email stating that we needed to get a money gram for $700. to release the funds the money was to go to Destiny Followell the agent to get the pick up. Some place have antique pickups but we needed the money so after reading the email from Paypal with borrowed money to send the money. Then we get a new paypal email stating that the funds would be released in 5 hrs ti 48 hrs. He proceeded to be pushy and we just told him to be patient. The next day he text again and asked if we got the new email about the agent needing $1500.00 more do to government tax and shipping fees. I told him that we don't have the money to do that and he gets mad and ask if we are scamming him I just laughed and said no but this said like a scam and he says hell report me to paypal, I said go ahead because I called paypal, and the government to report the fraud because paypal said that nothing had every been applied to our account and that they never sent an email. They also said they never ask for the seller or buy to get money grams to release funds. They and the government told us to stop texting him but he kept blowing my phone up with text and calls. He said that talking to paypal is not helpful since it was through email. Paypal said that it doesn't matter if through email, paypal, or other sender they never ask for money to release funds. My husband told the guy to send as back our $800.00and we would just figure out another way to proceed and he said that it is paypal email so the help center cant see. So we just quit talking to him and filed fraud and scams with Paypal, government, money gram, and craigslist and the local police.

I have been scammed by [email protected]

  • Monetary Loss: $25,790
They have stolen a friend of mine -- Gail Aymond Facebook a/c - friended me -- she gave me Craig's email address saying that the United Nations had a program to assist people and she received $50,000 in cash. I asked for the application form, completed it and was told I was approved to receive $85,000 -- charged me a fee of $950 + $86 to send via Western Union to Ronedy S. Belfor, Detroit, MI on 11/13/15 tracking no. 955-727-1184 -- I was then told I had to prepay the IRS taxes + state taxes. I emailed Gail each time I had a question and she responded (the person using her FB a/c)

This tax money was to be sent $1,500 to Ronedy S Belfor, 11/16/15, WUnion 382-412-5230; $1,500 to Ronedy on 11/16/15 WUnion 382-110-3347; 12/4/15 $1,500 to Ronedy via WUnion 428-932-9055; 12/4/15 $1,500 to Rodney WU 908-897-0730;

While I was at my sons in CA I was told my name had been short listed and I would now be receiving $185,000 and a new car. I said no way could I pay taxes on that much money. I took money out of an IRA and paid all they said I owed. This money was sent to Nigeria -- $1k to Michael S Jacob, Abeokuta, Ogun, Nigeria; 1/28/16 Money Gram 69689037. $1k to Donna B Samuel, Abeokuta, Ogun state, Nigeria
2/2/16 MG 40080035; 2/11/16 MG 29578036 $2k to Michael; 2/11/16
I have all of the documents for the funds I sent them.

Later, I was told that the $180k was for another Lettye, not me, and that my amount was $365,000 which meant I now owed another $30k in taxes. I went to my broker, George, told him what the $30k I now needed was for and he told me it was a scam and I should not send any more money.

I called Gail's sister, Hope, to see if Gail had received funds -- she said no -- then Craig stopped emailing me.

I've lied to him telling him I remembered I had two life insurance policies but they were in file cabinets in the country where I grew up. Craig is now emailing me again. Hell will freeze over before he gets another copper cent from me. I am to go to Lone Pine, LA for a Home Coming Easter. Craig wants me to go sooner.

I have documents on line which you can copy off if you wish. I've saved all emails. I was alerted by FB that someone logged on to my a/c from two sights in Nigeria and also one time from Raceland, LA. I don't have a printer connected or I could print everything off and mail it to you. You are welcome to come to my home 70466 Fuchsia Street, Abita Springs, LA 70420 I can be reached via AT&T telephone 985-871-7338 should you wish to contact me. I have changed all passwords. I will be asking Am Express and Chase for new cred cards shortly. Thank you for any assistance. I would like to catch whoever is doing this. I will figure out some way to keep him talking to me if you wish. Just let me know. Should you call when I am not home -- there is a recorder on my phone -- leave me a message and I will return your call Thanks Lettye Glee Book Froboese

There is more information on my iPad 2 which you are welcome to copy off. Pictures of Craig, documents, checks -- etc. and I have WU and MG receipts for all funds scammed.
