My daughter ordered a gift off of their Instagram add. It wax supposed to arrive in 7-14 days. She ordered it on October 25. When you click on the link in their email to check the status of the order it says ‘Have not applied for a single logistics number. (whatever that means) and gives you an email address to email them. [email protected] When you email them you get a permanent error email indicating their email is full. This has to be a scam. I would like my daughter to get her $59.50 back if this is not a legitimate company. Her email address is [email protected]

  • Monetary Loss: $6,700.00
He friend quested me on Instagram, then moved to talking in Hangouts. It was a romantic type of fraud. He was constantly full of compliments and "falling in love online is possible". I was gullible. He told me he'd marry me, buy a new house, take me to Paris and on and on.. then when he had me believing him, he asked for 900.00, a second time he asked for 1,500, the third time he asked for 3,000. In between these he asked in a forceful manner to buy ITunes cards. I bought 1,400 worth of those and sent to him. It was he just kept making so many promises and Swearing in the name of God that he'd pay me back but he wont. I kept almost all of the scratched off iTunes cards plus the Money Gram receipts. I am 57 and single, and I fell for it. I feel like I have a lot of proof here. Is there anything that I can do or be done to him???

  • Monetary Loss: $100
This person betrays to be able to flip your money, ask to transfer thru Cash app and once you do she asked for more money stating Western union is asking for a deposit.
She has various pictures on your IG showing all the money she flipped and people thanking her for all the money she made for them. If it sounds too good to be true...then it is don't do it. She still had the nerve to text me when I uploaded her profile information stating she is a scam!!
