I was contacted on facebook by someone posing to be my sister telling me to contact this person because I was on the winners list for free money. I contacted the website and was told to provide my full name, age, mothers maiden name, full address, marital status and other info to have cash dropped at my house. When I called my sister we realized we had been duped by Dupe. I have the Facebook messages and Emails to back this up if you need them.
