    I received a friend request on Facebook from a long time family friend. I automatically accepted and that's when her picture came up so I thought it was her.

    They started out by saying hello and telling me that they thank God for their life and today. Next came the good news and the $200,000.00 there was for me. I immediately started asking questions about my friend's personal life and that's when I was then blocked! Watch out!

    I got one as well tonight from a Facebook messenger of a friend of mine. Saying they were her. But they knew a lot about her, not about me and her. Like where we met, where we were in school a lot. Just really simple questions that she knows. So I reported the Facebook user to Facebook itself. It was for $150,000. Ugh makes me so mad.

    I received a text from a friend indicating that she received $120,000 and she saw my name on the list and told me to contact Stephen Mark to claim my money. I emailed but did not provide any personal info. Dayton OH.

      The minute you respond you are put on a 'Suckers List'. That is not a loose term for it, it is literally what it is called. Because you responded to it you will not get a load more emails, texts & possibly calls from them & others in the same game. Be very careful that you do not respond to these people any more & within 6 months to a year you *should* be taken off it.

      Never respond to anything when it mentions money like this. Unless you've actually entered a competition, say you've paid for a lottery ticket, or entered a competition in a magazine you've bought then you have had no reason to be given any money. The governments of all countries do not give out money like this. Even if they did they would not text or email you to say so, & they certainly wouldn't have a Gmail address!

      The text is a scam. Please do not follow the instructions in it.

    Someone tried to tell me I was getting $150,000.00! They want your address and cell number. My cell is for emergency, only! If it sounds too good, it IS!

    Got a message like this from Amy Mihlfield Amdor on facebook and lexgrants@gmail .com; also a text from 202-794-5863.

    I've never heard of this program. I watch FOX News all the time and there has never been a word about it. I say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    I have just been added as a friend by an existing friend, and was told by personal message that she had just received $200,000 from the Federal Government Humanity and Poverty Eradication.

    This was apparently delivered this morning by UPS! She saw my name on the list and did I want the text number to claim mine!

    I don't even live in America! Needless to say I have not replied.

      I just got that too - from fedex - um pretty sure they don't show a list of people when they deliver who is next to get $. What is wrong with some people.

    This is a follow up to my other message. I told them I could not go to that facebook page right now so then they sent me this........(781) 327-2532; this is the claiming agent phone number and sent him a text

  • Posted: Feb 9, 2015 by an anonymous user from: Chesterton, Indiana, United States

    I just received this message from a "friend" on Facebook, but was for $100,000, not $40,000. I asked if it was really him because it seemed like a scam and he kept assuring me that it is not a scam, but refused to answer any questions.

    I said if it was really my friend to tell me when and where we met...haven't heard back them since.

    This message came to me via a Facebook personal message supposedly from a trusted friend:

    "I saw your name in the Poverty Alleviation program list, it is a new program just established by the Federal Government and the World Bank in order to reduce poverty in the country."

    • Posted: Nov 6, 2014 by info

      Your friend's account may have been compromised or cloned by cyber-criminals.

      • Posted: 2 weeks ago by DarkAngelDani from: United Kingdom

        Or they've clicked on one of those video/listicle links. The 'Dancing pope' or 'Rollercoaster crash' ones. Most people seem to think that's just about spamming Facebook to be annoying, I don't think people cotton on that if they are able to post a link with a comment because you've clicked it, they can obviously do more! The posting of links & writing comments is more to test that they do have access than anything else.

    I also received a FB message from a friend who just minutes before had requested that I confirm her as a friend. Then supposedly she sent me a message asking what I did with the $150,000 that I had been given by the Federal government.

    We went back and forth. I said I didn't believe it and she gave me the name Jeffery Zient who is with the Agency that is trying to eradicate poverty by supplying citizens who name appears on this "Humanity and Poverty Alleviation Program" list. My name was on this list. I filled out the form and returned it. Am waiting to see what happens next.

    How can we stop these people?

      a friend I went to school also sent me this message, the guy that contacted me is Williams Smith and all I have to do is wire 2000.00 to Regina Grant, Pasadena, TX and my money will be here by UPS with in 6 hrs.

        It seems as if your friend account has been compromised, and is being used by cyber-criminals to trick you into sending money.

    I have receive two fb messenger messages from (It appears) to be two separate friends. I returned their message with Great! and Ok.

    The first message appeared on 7/4 and then 7/13. I received another with similar information saying they got monies 350,000 delivered to their door by UPS and my name was also on the list.

    I got this last night from a Patricia Saultz on face book last night, told her I don't need $ 40,000 & reported it to FB

    • Posted: Mar 13, 2014 by an anonymous user from: United States

      I got one just an hour ago from a Shawn Stewart Stewart who told me I had a $150,000 waiting for me. She sent me this message via facebook private message. shawnstewart.stewart

      They will do what ever they can to rip people off. I hope this one can be tracked down and locked up.
