This company calls 20 - 40 times a day at different times. They state that I have won some money and need my checking account to deposit the money to my account. I informed them this is a scam and that I would report them now they call every 15-30 minutes and when I answer they hang up.

Tried to extort money

  • Monetary Loss: $1
I received a text a few days ago that said I won the Shanghai mobile phone draw. And that I was to receive a 2015 BMW and 595,000.00 pounds, All I had to do was follow their instruction to receive money. Upon pursuing this they sent emails stating that I had to open a bank account in the UK to have funds sent. Then I received the email with the catch that I was waiting for where they ask for me to send money to then to receive my funds. Of course I did not send any money for I know that if it was legit no money needs to exchange hands, And this is where I am reporting this scam to you. No money was lost for I have seen these scams before just not this elaborate.

Well Mr. William is claiming to be a lottery agent and asking people to pay a fee via western union first in order to receive their money. I just don't want them to scam any of my friends and family.

Got a text from a Friend that told me that she got a grant for 150,000 and she saw my name and photo on the winners list. I was instructed to text (252) 320-9029. I did and the person that I was texting with told me I had to pay taxes on the money before it was delivered. I called the lady that the first text came from and she said that she didn't text me at all. This lady is a Christian lady and she would not lie to me for anything. She said her Facebook has den hacked to unfriend her, so I did. This phone number needs to be putout to the public.
