Did you fall for a scam?
My friend and I got scammed out of 200$ a piece for fake ID's in NYC... Totally sucked.
My sis in law bought a vcr from someone in a van. Got home And it was a box full of bricks. :(
my little sister got sucked in by someone saying she won contest and that she had to send them her bank account information in order for them to deposit the money. there was over 4000 dollars missing from their account by the time she figured it out, I couldn't believe that she was so naive as to believe them! wow!
Western Union'd $1,500 for a car loan offer; off of the internet.
Fell for the speaker scam.. 2 guys in a truck pull up say they have extra speakers from a job where they ordered too many.. showed me there fake catalog showing they were worth 2000 dollars said they would take whatever i spent 400 and they are probably worth 50 bucks
I was on KSL looking for a job and fell for a "personal assistant" position posted. They told me i would be getting paid very well by just getting supplies for orphanages. They asked for all my personal info and gave it to them! Later, stupidly realizing it was a scam. I then fell for the same two more times after that.
Oh I bought the speakers from the guys in the van... It was a full sound system that worked, but no where near worth the $600 I paid the fools
My mom fell for that scam and now the bank has closed and her account n reported she did fraud when she was the victim and police report was filed. Now she can't get an account with any bank :(
I got one of those checks. The check was real and the account number was real but the name on the account was bogus and the bank was in ome state and the company was in another. I was to cash it in order to pay for the shipping for the 500,000 cash reward I had won
I was scammed by those stupid modeling agencies. Cost me more than $1000 in court fees.
Scanned out of a $3,000 van, the people created a phony money transfer website which actually exists but the link they sent in the email went to their created one.

In highschool a kid was arrested in my computer class one day. We later found out he sold a poster of a Mercedes on eBay but posed it as a real car and sold it to a guy for thousands of dollars. The guy he sold it to reported it and he was investigated and arrested. He did the whole transaction in our 6th period computer class. He never returned to class or school.
I got a call one time saying they were calling in behalf of Wells Fargo and I was being sued for opening a credit card and not paying it I have never had a Wells Fargo card so I said I wanted to fight it they told me there would be lots of fees and I could pay $2000 and it would drop the charges I told them to send me the court papers never saw them or heard from them again
