Letgo "Military Personnel" Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I was selling my iPad for $400 on the app Letgo, and a guy named Guerra wanted to buy it. When he had texted me, at the bottom of his text the signature was "Send From A Military Mobile" so I didnt really think much of it until he asked me for my login credentials with my bank. Being the idiot I am, I gave that to him. A couple days later there was a payment processing of $2,480. I then get a text from a guy named Mike from the "finance" department from the "Military". I was really shocked. So I changed my log in information and asked him why he was giving that much. The finance guy told me that Guerra wanted to send the rest of his money to his daughter along with the iPad. Once things got confusing through texting, I tried to call and it went to voicemail saying that it was a number a**ociated with the app called Text Now (you can make/receive calls and text). I called my bank to have them put a fraud alert on it. The 2 guys got very mad. The bank did tell me that there was a huge scam going around and if you withdraw the money, your account will go negative, then you will be responsible for that negative balance. Thank god i trusted my instinct and knew this was a scam and did not send the iPad out. BE CAREFUL! Dont ever send out the product before you receive the money!!!
