Cloned fb friend Kelly Simmons and then used about number to contact and setup payment via itune cards or Western Union. I used iTunes cards. I was so dumb. Communication was through FB and text message. Say he’s a male. Area code 605? So I don’t know about the location.

Type of a scam Tech Support
Foreign accent person called me and said he wanted to talk to me about my computer. I said ‘no, and please do not call me again, take me off any call list you have’. They hung up. I had a similar call last November when they sent a message to me on my personal computer that they were impersonating Microsoft and that my computer would lock up and crash. They tried to sell me a package of security and monitoring. I declined and advised them I was done talking to them. This was before I heard about this scam on the news.
