Have you heard about a government program that will pay your monthly bills for an up-front payment or processing fee? And, because it comes up in church, the scam might seem like it could be legit. But take it from me — and the FTC: there is no federal program that pays your monthly bills in exchange for payment of any kind. What really happens if you pay these scammers? And now the scammers have your bank or credit information.
If you need help paying bills, or know someone who does, there are some legitimate government sites that can connect you with programs that help with things like medical bills and energy services for people who are eligible. Also check out how to make a budget or find a credit counselor who can help you manage your money. Yes, I received a communication like this. The person used her name on the message function and contacted me about this "government program. I was told to call "James Williams" at Perhaps you can call this and find out who it is.
I did not call, I just wanted to get this information so I could report i t. Thank you. They didn't hack into her Message function on Facebook. They started a new using her name and picture and sent you a friend request possibly telling you that their old got hacked and to delete it or some other such reason for the new.
Sometimes they don't give reason,just send out friend requests to people already on their friends list. They did the same thing to me, they hack into Georgia Harrell message function facebook and started a new using her name and picture and told be she has received grant money and she did not has to pay it back I thought that was good so she gave me the information and the was text me with all the information about the grant and I did what he said and he want me to pay He was text to pay and I will get my money I did not do that him name was Mr. Greene and his phone was Someone did hack into my friends message.
All of our messages are still in the chat!!! Crazy and they are giving me the phone to attorney Marie Williams is the name. Only getting the information so I can report it! No new at all!! Omg, I received a friend request on messenger from my aunt, not realizing that it was fake and that I already had her in my messenger contacts.
Someone had taken on her name, adding a middle name, and used her familiar pic. I was directed to a Bill Robert Facebook site to see if I qualify too. The scam had me going for a while, I am ashamed to admit. As soon as I acted suspicious, the scammer stopped talking to me. I hope I am not hacked! Be careful out there! I too was introduced to Global Grant Fund by a so called Friend. The name I was given was Frederick Cypher at Is there any way these thieves can be arrested?
I f you gave someone your bank, credit card or utility information, you can act to protect yourself from identity theft. Use these tips from IdentityTheft. The information you give will go into a secure database that law enforcement uses for investigations. How do we get our Facebook back they put all their details stole my I didn't know it was a scam what do I do. I questioned it and asked her why the heck did she think the government was handing out free money randomly. I told her it was a scam and she is not who she claims to be and I googled the phone she gave me which was in an Asian country, and told her it was not in Atlanta like she said it was.
Lawson, And gave me that .
I told her I was on to her and she was not the person she claimed to be and I would be reporting To my friend that her was hacked. Which I promptly did. Funny, as soon as I said that, I stopped receiving messages. I received a message from a friend on the Global Grant Fund which was hacked. The Agent's name is Wayne and his phone is No way would I fall for that This just happened to me someone used my cousin info on fb and messaged me asking if I knew or heard of the IFC program.
Gave me the telling me to call an attorney named William Henry. Pissed me off too because at first the person was really acting like my family member who had earlier been down pretty bad! I blocked them on fb and told my cousin about it.
Man people be careful for real! That happened to me. I thought it was someone from church until they asked for money. Another way to tell is click on the picture n it won't get a profile. Just happened to my mother!!
She said she got messaged thru Facebook by someone claiming to be her cousin. Tried to convince my mom to do it. All scammers go thru here!!! Beware folks!!! Messaging is dangerous and not trustworthy!! But I can call Yahoo. Got call from I told them I would report them. I was just called tonight from a similar Robert Cale in Washington State. I've received "many" of these identical to yours darrell. The latest targeted my mom from aclaiming to be ayden hayes. If the gov. I asked if she was sure that she was calling from Washington DC not from India she became rude and told me to go home.
I just got a call just like this. It was from Ohio They gave me a conformation and a phone I called the original. It was a security guard at a retirement living community. I just received the same call today. The phone s and names were different. However they wanted me to go to Walmart and purchase a gift card so I could be registered with the FTC.
I asked him when did the US government start dealing with Walmart and he hung up. This is two days they haves called me. I block the s but they keep calling on other s. The information you give goes into a secure database that the FTC and other law enforcement agencies use for investigations. I got a messenger message from a young lady that I didn't know until I got her friend requset,told me about the fgg, who to call to get help to apply, then I got told approved, but I needed to choose how much o wanted,then got told I need to pay a clearence fee of ,then I would get the money delivered to me,kept texting me to be honest with th em,text me more after I left a message that I wanted to speak to him over the phone??
I think this Chris William's "agent" chris williams is a liar ,cuz there is no way anyone is sending me a grant for bucks,giving me thoudands?? Thank you for these alerts. I post them on my Face Book in hope I can save someone loss, pain and grief! May God Bless You for this shared information! Some Area Agencies on Aging have volunteer money management programs to seniors who need help managing their checkbooks.
Anyone who says that you have to pay an upfront fee is clearly a scam, because most legit businesses or programs won't tell you to pay until after should they be charging for anything. Thank you for the he up. Yes, I just had another scam tried on me just this morning saying I could get money from the "Global Grant Fund", - also watch out for this one people. I knew straight away and it backfired on her pretty quickly. With scams, they never know how to spell or use grammar properly - these are a dead giveaway, and also, if they ask for money for a "clearance" or "transfer" fee, it is a scam.
Hope this helps. Make the Phone Companies responsible.!! They make money from these scammers by selling them services.!! I agree. Big phone companies should either aid a consumer complaint until the issue is resolved, or be held financially able. I traced a scammer online only to discover other folks complained to the same phone company about the same. These crooks knew my name andso these days, that's all you need.
They have legal tea s on standby, but they only use them for big situations while the individual consumer even if they are not a direct customersuffers, sometimes tremendously because the phone company refuses to help! I told the caller it sounded like a scam and they hung up. I am victimized by a big scammer by fake from one of the dating site.Texting friend wantedthen more maybe
