I was scammed on Facebook messenger
Dec 2, 2019
Monetary Loss: $0
Who I thought was legitimate was actually a scam. They got my drivers license number and social security number. What can I do.
Robert Smith posed as a financial advisor and had 11791.42 transferred from my chase account to Global Intel INC in an escrow account. In 6-8 weeks the money would be delivered to me And my Chase account balance would be paid off. He claimed there was a lawsuit against credit card companies that charged high interest rates and all I had to do was say I wouldn’t bring a lawsuit against them. I never received anything.
I have been scammed by a girl with the user name jazzymontez0

Monetary Loss: $50.00
I was contacted by someone saying they won the jackpot at the casino and instead of spending it on drugs her and her aunt agreed to giving it away. They would receive any amount of money and send 20x that in return. They had proof of transactions so I thought maybe they were doing a good deed. After I sent 50$ they blocked me. I asked for a refund from another account and ended up getting a number that she texted me from. I don’t know if it was hers but it’s somehow connected to her. I did not get a refund. I now have a Venmo connected to her. A cashapp name connected to her somehow. A phone number. And a Snapchat connected to her. She has now blocked me on everything and I have yet to see any money.
