Erik – Mar 09, 2020
Victim Location 55347
Total money lost $295
Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan
The individual Jason, promised that $10,000 could be wired into my account in as little as 60-190 minutes but that my credit score was not sufficient and that a way to show them good intent was that I would provide prepayment of 1 monthly payment, $295 which would be loaded onto a Walmart Gift Card that I could later use as payment for the first month. After purchasing said GC, providing Jason with the information about the card, and waiting for him to verify on his end, I received a “secured email” with information about the wire that was supposedly going into my account. When the funds were not in my account after the promised 190 minutes, Jason said day after day that it was the bank, or it was the FDIC that was putting a hold on the funds and that I should see it soon. Now, I am being told to pay another $350 to “boost” my credit score enough for them to wire the funds into my account.
