Door to Door Scam announicing "Work Notice Update"

At 6:20 PM today, a middle-aged black man wearing a "Granger?" uniform jacket rang my door bell with a clipboard in hand. He announced in an authoritative voice that he was at my house for a "Work Notice Update". I told him I wanted nothing to do with whatever he was selling and did not open the door. He yelled to me that I should put salt on the steps and pretended to write something on his clipboard. I watched him closely as he walked away and he kept looking back as he knew I was watching. He went across the street and rang another neighbor's doorbell. There was no answer. He saw that I was studying him carefully so he walked away quickly to the end of the street where I could no longer see him. I wanted to be able to alert my community that this person is going door to door but do not know where to begin. There are a lot of older people such as myself in the community and I would not want them to be scammed or hurt by this suspicious individual.

  • Monetary Loss: $2,000
I found this ATV for sale on the Americalisted web site.the seller said that I would need to pay the first 2,000$ by using EBAY gift cards. I was thinking that would be a safe way with having Ebay involed. I went and bought 4 500$ gift cards. scratch off the back took pictures and sent to the Ebay email address eBay VPP .
the next day Lindsey ( not a real person) notified me and told me they could not deliver the ATV until I bought the ATV in full. so I questioned way they had change the procedure and that's when I realized I have been scammed.
I contacted Ebay to see if they would help me and they said there is nothing they can do. which I cant believe.
I have all the emails

I have been scanned by Williams at 385-246-0976

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Message from Allen George II (I believe someone HACKED his FACEBOOK account) provide me with the number listed (385-246-0976) to text about winning grant money. I texted the number and provide PII information because I trusted the real Allen George II as we have common interest in the community and ministry. The texter asked that I send $1,000 to receive $150,000 in grant money. PII information was shared. I began to ask questions regarding the company or foundation. Once I started asking questions, the texting stopped. I am unable to upload the numerous text as they are on my phone and I am not computer savvy.
