Possible scam

A woman called my home, knew my full name and said I had an appointment for a man to service my "exhaust pipe". (the pipe from my burner to the outside) I called the number back and no one answered. I called my company that services my burner (Home Serve) and they said no appointment was scheduled. A black van with no markings on it, pulled up to my home. A heavy set caucasion man, with a beard, came on to my property. There was another man in the van with a hoodie on. The man stated he was from NY Gas and had to do a safety check. I told him to get off my property and that I would call the police if he didn't. He left immediately and then the woman called me back and said I was going to get a ticket for noncompliance of a safety check. When I asked her for the name of the company, she hung up the phone. I fear this is a scam and other people, especially the elderly (I am a senior citizen) will be harmed. The police dept. couldn't help me unless a crime was committed. I am trying to prevent a crime from being committed.

Scammed by so called Canadian French lady picking money in France

  • Monetary Loss: $200
In process of initial research, scammer provided very realistic ID (probably stolen) and seemed to be possible of being private a lender even ready to "meet" in Strasbourg, France. As always all came to the first upfront payment and then next. Assumable another shameless west African residing in France and using that as advantage in scams.
