I have been scammed by Steven Anderson (or Handerson)

  • by: sholomothgolda

  • Monetary Loss: $40,000.00
For approximately six months, I have been in phone conversations with a man calling himself Steven Anderson who claims to be a doctor working for the UN in Afghanistan. We developed an intimate relationship over the phone and in order to keep it going he asked me to send him money which I refused but did agree to purchase iTune and Amazon Cards (I have kept the cards and purchase slips). Have tried to stop him from calling but agreed to send him cash through the mail three times in order to facilitate him sending a piece of luggage through the mail using Skye Delivery Services and a man named Alex Wilson.
Each time the piece had to be paid for to Customs in order to move it on to the US from first Taiwan, then China then Canada and now CA and each time I sent cash to an address in PA. Supposedly, if I did not provide this money, Steven Anderson could be arrested and because my name and address are supposedly on the carton, I am responsible. Both scammers have been relentless in pressing me to comply which I have until recently though I have reported to my local Sheriff's Dept. in Sullivan County, NY. Now, I need advice. AT& T said they cannot block the calls because they come from overseas even though they show addresses in the United States. I have tried not to pick up but that's not stopping them. I have also tried to tell them that I am done sending cards or money but that doesn't stop them from trying. This is making me ill and as they have my name, phone numbers (including my cell) and address-fearful. Please advise. Thank you.
