I was even sent an email supposedly from FedEx starting a delivery was pending. I personally want to see this game burn. I sacrificed a day of work waiting for nada. I am livid!

Apparently the scammer is impersonating the real Dave Johnson on Facebook. Be careful and don’t accept a friend request from him. No millionaire in their right mind would want to have random friends.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
I got an email from David Johnson, supposed to have won $298,000 Powerball in NY. But the picture shows him at a Casino with a winning lottery check. The email says I am receiving this email correspondence from Kevin Patel 513-909-8112, Financial Manager, [email protected] for David Johnson’s money w/Nationwide Bank U.S. It says I’ve been chosen along with four other people for disbursement fund to his foundation. He’s supposed to give 5 million dollar checks to five people. The catch is they want me to pay $520 for a courier. He says he’s from Columbus, Ohio. He said there are three Nationwide banks in Columbus, Ohio. Yesterday I asked him three questions; how did he get my name, he said he didn’t know. Then I asked if he would accept a money order, he said no it would have to be wired. I asked him if he was at home or at the office. He kept talking, I told him to shut up. I asked him to send me a text of the check from Nationwide. Then I told him he was a scammer.
I found him on Instagram saying he was giving 30,000 to his first 500 followers and had videos and pictures of people with the money. He messaged me and everything seemed legit but then he said buy a $70 amazon gift card. If hadn’t said that I would have felt for it. What I wonder is whether people were just using his identity or if he was also behind the scam

Type of a scam Tech Support
Rec’d call April 30, 2018; advised may have trojan/hackers on my laptop that may affect laptop(2), emails, cell phones, internet router, printer, TVs, etc. and may also affect bank/credit cards. He stated I paid $799 on May 5th 2016 or 2017 to Instant Resolve (vendor for Microsoft) for 3-year service agreement. He requested and obtained access to computer and showed me csrss (?) in Task Manager, and stated that it was a trojan and that all virus protection had been "stopped". Also stated, Anti-Hacking Corporation is a gov’t obtained company that would be working on my problem because nothing was wrong with the computer; therefore, he (Instant Resolve Inc.) could only help if something was wrong with computer. He placed me on hold and contacted Anti-Hacking for help. Requested I obtain $499 Google Play card so that Anti-Hacking could install McAfee Norton on each affected item. I purchased two $500 cards, scratched and provided serial numbers via phone; additional cards were not purchased. On May 1, 2018, he called and asked if I had obtained the additional cards. Since I had not, he stated nothing could not move forward because Anti-Hacking had prepared for ALL items (including funds) to be completed. I asked if the $1000 could repair the main items affected. Stated that would not work and no further attempt would be made and funds were lost. I would supposedly, be refunded $499 from Instant Resolve because they could not fix problem; and funds on google cards would be refunded to my credit account after resolution was obtained by Anti-Hacking Team Corp., who would only need to use $499.99 to purchase and install Norton McAfee on each devise ($499 x 4).
