Type of a scam Other
Good Day! I would like to report this scammer online. I was offered a job to process or transfer payment to a different person once the funds are available to my bank account. I was offered a 4% commission for every transaction with $1000 monthly salary as long as I hit the quota for sending or transferring funds online. So, for my first transaction, I got the payment first for over $4000 from eBay which the manager (Maria Grass) emailed me about. Now, I quite had a hint and made some research online then I found out about this link https://dirtyscam.com/reviews/marina-devalia-a-k-a-maria-paseka/. So, I reached out to her and I didn’t judge her right away because I might be wrong or I might be right with the information I got so I asked her a few questions regarding the transaction. Now, while we were conversing, she was a little too over-protected about some details. My goal was to just send the payment to the seller directly and get in touch with both the buyer and the seller which it didn’t happen because she didn’t tell me the information at all and she even accused me why I was asking for these information. Now, I reached out to PayPal instead and asked them if there’s a way to track a payment once I sent to a different person because I don’t want my business PayPal account to have any issues. They told me that the only way for them to track the payment is once I sent the payment as a payment for goods/services that’s the way for them to track it so I felt relieved after hearing it at least I was hopeful PayPal could track it. However, as per Maria, I asked her about the processes for sending the payment, she then told me that I needed to withdraw the funds directly to my bank account and by the way I was already in the process of withdrawing the funds to my bank but it didn’t go through and good thing it didn’t happen. So, I told Maria that I don’t want my PayPal account to have any issues and I want PayPal to track the payment too so she then told me to send the payment to a different email address instead. From then on, I trusted that the transaction will go smooth but I was wrong. So, I transferred the funds and of course got my 4% commission as promised then transferred all the balance to this person via email thru PayPal. After which, I got an email from PayPal that they need to verify my identity which I did, I submitted my national ID and financial information. Then, afterwards, I got a confirmation stating that they just closed my account for no reasons or explanations at all. So, now, I would like to file a complaint and a case to both PayPal and Ubicoins.
If you need the necessary details of the transactions, I have all of them on my inbox and my only goal is to get this resolved. I want that scammer rot in jail and PayPal to have more secured options not only to ones sending the money but to the ones who are also receiving and would like to track the payment. Basically, I was misinformed of the process and nobody helped me with it. Now, my PayPal balance has negative balance and that I needed to pay for it but I don’t have that amount of money. Please help me with this.
Moreover, I am located in the Philippines and I have relatives and friends who live in the USA. I sure do hope that it won’t have any issues at all. I am willing to help with the case progress. I just want to fix this mess and I am ready to help with whatever you need. You may reach out to me via email which I have attached to this website.
