The answer got wad that it's a government grant. So I decided to look it up and I got your report about this scam. I've since blocked all communications

    A friend told me about this, she said she had done it and got 215,000. She said to text the message to a number she gave me that said want cash or some such.

    I got a text back wanting all of my personal information to see if I qualified under the Poverty Eradication Program, they wanted 2,000 for a temporary Tax document another charges, cash, mailed to them and they would send you the moneyplus a refund of the 2,000.

    She said she did everything and did get the 215,000 plus the refund. And said her other friends had gotten their money also,not supposed to tell anyone,

    Question, if this is a scam,why do they actually send that much money?

    • Posted: 2018-02-12T22:47:30 by info

      It seems your friend account was hacked and is being used by scammers to contact you and trick you into sending them money.

      Contact your friend via telephone or email, and he/she will tell you the messages are fakes because he/she didn't send them.

      Remember, a lot of online users' accounts are being hacked and use to trick their friends and family members into taking part in some scam.

      Also, once you are asked to send money to receive money, prize, or grant, it is a scammer attempting to scam you.

    Received this same message two days ago. I immediately knew it was a scam. Didn't send any personal information, just acted like I was interested to see what else they would say.

    Seems to be important that you "sign in " using your Facebook account. They are very persistent, so be very aware of these low down scam artists. Somehow they get an old friends name, one that you are not friends with on Facebook.

      No. And, it is possible the message was not sent from your friend's account. The scammers may have cloned your friend's account or spoof it, and sent the message from the clone.

        • Posted: 2017-10-24T15:07:05 by info

          Never reply to scam messages because you are only telling the scammers that your email address is active. Therefore, they will continue to send you more scam and spam.

    I just received a Chat (FB) message from a friend telling me he saw my name on the FedEx list when he signed for his money ($100k). Asked him how much he had to pay "the agent", he said it depends on how much you want. He supposedly paid $1,050 to get $100,000. While he was responding to my questions, I was reading this scam article. Told him I was going to report him to the authorities, haven't heard from him since. :-)

    I was just presented with this same scan 2,days ago, they couldn't provide any of my friends info.

    I asked for her cell number because I new she was out of town they said she was in Miami, when she had just posted she and her sister in Orlando in front of the Pulse Club, they kept urging me to continue with the process.

    I kept asking various questions because it sounded to good to be true. The straw that broke their back was when I asked the person to send me a picthre of herself roght now. After about 15 mins they sent me a picture nut it was her face on friends of hers body because I went on her site and saw the same poise and outfit on a friend of hers and my friend is thinner than that after I told them what they did and not a good job at it I haven't heard anymore from them pls be careful, they try real hard to pull you in.

    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!

      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!

        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.

    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.
