On facebook I befriended a person i knew she told me about a grant that she had won. She paid $1500.00 and received $100,000.00 check within 24 hours after sending her payment in. I was sent a link to scott e burchfield of international monetary fund I was given two different addresses to send half payment by money gram to each address. I have those addresses. When my "friend" would not answer her phone or answer any personal questions . I then knew it was a scam. Almost sent the money she was very conveniencing. I have saved all information I was sent.

Scott Brian friended me on Facebook. We spoke for 7 months everything was okay then he asked for money to help him start a business with Darne Peter Joseph regarding crude oil. I lent him this money, he then after a week came back and said that business was successful and that he made profits in the millions. He then asked me to go to the UK to have Ali alwaleed help me to get the money into the U.S. and pay him another 10,000. I then realized this was all a scam. I stopped talking to him but would like to have this stopped to help others. Scott Brian is posing as a military man in the Army. I do have the receipts for the wire transfers.

They have a winners list and my name was there. Go to Francesca Benson Site and you will see. It says contact list and there is a page of winners. I even knew two of the names. Finally called one person and she said no she has not won anything. A scam.
