I was contacted through Facebook contact claiming to be Toby Keith. The person schmoozed me he believed I believed him to be Toby. Problem being I do have a friendship with the real Toby Keith Covel. Anyway, a person claiming to be Toby tried to convince me to invest 5000 to his record label ShowDog. I declined but said I would look into investing. Long story short I want this predator caught, he is good, but also stupid. After leading him on I convinced him to call me, and he did. No surprise the man has an accent, maybe Middle Eastern and he is young. I am going to attaching parts of messages that we conducted through a program called Hangouts. I don't seem to be able to attach messages, however, I did also file a complaint with ScamExperts. Please tell me how to forward messages. Also involved in the scam Richardson Samuel. I have messages and emails, yet I am not sure how to attach them.

Someone posing as a friend with her whole Facebook wall tried to get me to call the # above as she was sent $5000 by ups after paying $1200. And she saw my name on a list of recipients $ to be sure I called the # & followed their instructions. I could text if line was busy. The money supposedly was from local support & Federal Government for low income, elderly, etc. I let my friend know & posted to my status that if anyone received a message from me, it isn’t me! I hope they didn’t receive any of my private accts. I called the person a scam & deleted our conversation! All I have is the # above. I didn’t call it.
