  • Monetary Loss: $3000.00
Approached by Abdul on the corner street 40th Street and Broadway in Oakland, Calif. . He needed direction to a recommended church to give donation, since he had closed to $200.000.00 on him, which he show me. He needed to hire two person to help distribute money to churches and charity. I was hired...and needed another person . Please note, he could not do it because he needed to leave for South Africa by tomorrow July 8th because his visa will expired. These instruction had to be followed or he will loose two million dollars of inheritance left to him by his late uncle as dictate by his lawyer in San Francisco. So we went to the recommended church, called the African Methodist Church on Telegraph and met Tony, supposedly a deacon of the church. He was hired. Abdul did not trust banks in U. S. to hand out or withdrawn money of your own... so he asked Tony and I to draw full amount of money for our banks. Tony drew out $48,000.00 from his bank ...CHASE. Then I went to my bank, Bank of America drew out $3000.00. All this transaction was done to show in good faith that banks were trustworthy. I was then to get $20,000 as fee and $80,000 to distribute to charity in $ 1000,00 increment . I saw the money and my 3000.00 and he later wrap in black cloth, but he pulled a switch and ended with a roll of bundle paper clippings to feel like money. I was driving my vehicle and dropped Tony and Abdul off...with instruction to count the money later at home. Tony offered to drive Abdul to San Francisco to meet his lawyer to complete his instruction so Abdul can get later his 2 millions dollars inheritance when he return to United States with his family. Please note, they both claim to be Christian which shows how deceiving a devil lie is.

  • Monetary Loss: $6500
The person was a man saying that Gloria Mackenzie wanted to give a gift of 3 million dollars for she was dying and she had won the jackpot a few years back. In order for me to receive this gift I had to make a deposit of $500 initially to open an account in India. After the account was opened I had to pay more money to get what is called cot code. Then I received the code then they sent me what looked like government documents from India stating I must pay 7600. In taxes to receive tax code to obtain the 3 million in my account. They even set up an account online showing the balance of 3million and my deposit of 500. I never received any of the money in that account after sending 6500. To them and they kept asking for more information went to us bank and told them what was happening. They told me this was a fraud.

  • Monetary Loss: $0
My husband received a letter today from Sear's Financial, to our old address, from Canada. When he opened it, he gave it to me and said it was a scam. So naturally, I read it to find, we have a long lost next of kin named Joe Lee (since our last name was the same, we should be able to claim his $9.2 million. We were to apply to the bank (Canada Trust) as an extended relative to the deceased customer, while he worked from the inside to make sure all needed information and evidence were provided to us to back up our claim. WHAT? He would help as long as we shared the $9.2 million with him. We are to keep this discreet and confidential . NOT! We would like to "sue" for mail fraud or trying to pull one over on us, but they will never find a Peter Andrew Timo!

Questionable inheritance claim

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Received letter, dated 7-7-16, from Peter Andrew Timo, claiming to be an account manager with TD Canada Trust Ban, Ontario, Canada. Timo stated he was handling account of a supposed relative of mine who had been deceased since 2006. I could claim the relative's funds of $9.2 million by contacting Timo at his email address to proceed with the transaction. I needed to do this as soon as possible as the claim period would expire after a 10-year period of dormancy on the relative's account. This multi-million dollar offer about an unknown deceased relative seemed a bit outrageous and therefore I did not contact Timo.

Peter Andrew Timo vs. Joe Rose

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Got letter posted from Canada and with Walmart logo on it but no return address. Letter inside had Canada Trust logo. Peter Andrew Timo told me that a depositor in his bank, Joe Rose, died 10 years ago and no one has claimed the 9.2 million inheritance. Since my last name is Rose he will help me get the inheritance before the dormancy period expires. He says it will, "be shared between the two of us."
They have reached a new level. They are willing to pay for international mail and are using familiar logos on the envelope to get us to open them. But, still no mailing address.
