I was scammed for roofing repairs

  • by: Leemonahan
  • #997
  • Feb 3, 2016
  • Monetary Loss: $2,000
An old man came to my house 4 weeks ago and said my roof had holes caused by squirrels. I woke up to find him on a ladder to my roof. This caught me off guard and I felt sorry for him so I let him repair the hole for $800. He came back 2 weeks later with the same story about more holes. He quoted a low price of. $200 which eventually became $550. He came back today using the same routine. I wake up to find him on a ladder against my roof. The $400 price be quoted became $700. So he collected $2,000 over a 5 week period. This was all cash, with no documentation. I have his phone number only because I told him to call before starting work. He had done this same thing to me 2 years ago and I had completely forgot about it. He fixed my chimney BEFORE telling me and tried to collect $700. I told him I only had $450. This was when I was nice to old people because I am a nice person. Evidently, I am still too nice. He got away with it before so now he is up to his old tricks. I am 66 years old and I was never scammed before except by him starting 2 years ago.

  • Monetary Loss: $12
He contacted me in reference to purchase of windsurfing sail, listed on Iwindsurf.com, we agreed to price and he ask for info where to send check. After that I got this email from him
Good Day Alvaro Minor,

How are you doing today ?

How was your day? I want you to understand that the deal is on as my secretary as mail out the payment already..... You can track the package on FEDEX Service web site at WWW.FEDEX .COM with tracking number :775488991083,and will be delivered to you today but there was a slight error i guess we can handle with care,instead of the actual amount $280 she mailed out payment for $850, she claim that was what i requested for,but she didn’t get that straight.So once you have the payment please cash it and deduct the money for your goods plus $100 that for your run around expenses.The excess fund should please be sent to my mover via Money Gram,this fund will be use in offsetting the cost of the shipment he as undertaken for me recently. you should then get back to me with the deposit confirmation and the funds would be available the very next business day that is if you were not given the funds immediately because the payment is cash on deposit.

When they are cashed, kindly deduct payment and the remainder balance is to be sent via MONEY GRAM MONEY TRANSFER(Money Gram)is a money transfer service and you can locate money gram out in any Walmart around your location.). The balance is to be sent to my mover information below, after deducting your payment

Mover details are as follows:


RECEIVER'S NAME :Elizabeth Whitaker
ADDRESS: 8901 .Franklin Avenue
CITY AND STATE: Vineland, NJ
ZIP CODE: 08360
COUNTRY: USA


Once payment is sent out, kindly get in touch with me with the following information needed for my mover to come over for the pick up;

Reference Number ( 8 digit) :
Sender's name and address :
Exact amount sent :


N:B - Money Gram Transfer Charges are to be deducted from my mover balance and not from your own pay, and kindly please write me back immediately so i know you received and understand these email.

Regards,
Sam.

It seems unusual , but I figured I can try to cash or deposit check and see. Check could not be cashed but I deposited, next day It bounced.
I never sent any money or experienced any loss except time and returned check fee of $12.
I am reporting hopefuly to stop others from falling fir this.
thank you
