Total money lost $700
Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
In April 2017 I got a phone call from 775-299-3148 telling me I had won $3 million in The Money Team Lottery. They said they found me on Facebook. He said I would need to pay a fee for traveling fees to bring me the money.
I went to (***)* a grocery store on Taylor Rd, Pataskala, OH, and wired $189.00. I was then told I needed to pay more money to bring the lottery winnings through the airport, so I went back to (***) and wired $256, then they called a third time, and I went back to (***) and wired $255.00. The 2nd & 3rd wire transfers were to Javon Kelly, St Ann, Jamaica.
I took two different days off from work because they were supposed to deliver the money. The one time had to do with a delay from customs at the airport.
Today I received a call from Floyd Mayweather’s attorney, representing TMT, she was going to represent me against Jon, who had been arrested. An FBI agent would accompany me to court on June 28, 2017, and we would get my money back. She told me to put my trust in her, and everything would be fulfilled. She said she was 20 minutes from my house to deliver the prize. She asked me to wire $402.00 to Damien White, Jamaica.
I talked to the Western Union representative and she told me they had records of the wire transfers, and I could get copies if I needed them. I kept all of the text messages and wire transfer receipts. I called ScamPulse.com to report the loss.
