Beware of "Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB)" Facebook Scam

Would you share this article with someone to help inform him/her?

Facebook users are asked to delete or ignore messages that claim they are have won thousands or millions of dollars in the Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB), and that their names were seen on the winners' list. Some of the messages claim that the government is giving away grants and the recipients' names are on the list. But, the messages are fakes that are being sent by scammers. Therefore, recipients of those messages are asked not to respond to them with their personal information, or follow the instructions in them, even if the messages appear as if they were sent by a friend or family member. Scammers have cloned or hijacked some Facebook users' accounts, and are sending fake messages to their friends, in an attempt to trick them into sending their personal information and money.

    I have a “friend” I haven’t heard from in years now she is messaging me asking me if I have heard of this board, are they hacking into individual accounts and then contacting people?


    • Mar 26, 2019 at 6:14 PM by an anonymous user from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

      I have been contacted by someone pretending to be a friend, I contacted my friend and asked if they sent me msg on messenger and they hadn't, as it didn't sound like something they would do.

      This impostor even tried to call me on messenger which I didn't answer. Is there anything we caN DO about this person!


      • Mar 26, 2019 at 6:21 PM by info

        You cannot stop them, but you can share this article with your friends and family to help educate them.

    They are trying to get money from me right now what should I do.... I have been getting texts all day from them


  • Feb 28, 2019 at 4:56 PM by an anonymous user from Sunnyvale, California, United States

    I have been sent this same info and I don't trust it


  • Feb 25, 2019 at 1:21 PM by an anonymous user from Wailuku, Hawaii, United States

    I was contacted yesterday on fb by what seemingly was my friend, ( who’s account was hacked on fb), telling me she was awarded $80,000 by WCAB. She told me she saw my name on this list and told me to contact them to qualify for this money which is a free federal grant.

    The email she gave me is: lolldeanna9@g.mail.com or text 1-234-249-5356.

    Finding all this hard to believe, I contacted my friend to see if it was really her that won this money and messaged me on fb.
    Found out this is a SCAM and bogus! My friend didn’t know anything about this and turns out she doesn’t even have a fb account. I texted this number back alerting them I filed a police report against them for fraud and not to contact me again!


  • Feb 24, 2019 at 12:38 PM by an anonymous user from Ontario, California, United States

    I just went through this scam in the exact same manner as so many others have described.

    The person is Gail Munn and I was directed to send my moneygram from Wal-Mart in the amount of $ 2000.00 for a $ 200,000.00 return.I was to send this to; a Antione Spruill North Carolina Roanoke Rapids , 27870.

    My concern is why am I making out a moneygram and sending it to a single persons address. my biggest concern is that a friend named Gail Munn from Facebook was the one who Initiate this. I have yet seen any legit WCAB grants!


  • Feb 18, 2019 at 10:40 AM by an anonymous user from Magnolia, Arkansas, United States

    I nearly fell for the same thing. I thought I was texting my ex-wife she is in California. I am in Texas.

    I finally called her this morning she had no idea what I was talking about the phone number of that supposed to claim agent 832 324 9071. I'm sure a lot of people have fallen for that scam.


  • Jan 31, 2019 at 12:24 PM by an anonymous user from Wallingford, Connecticut, United States

    I was contacted by a friend who said he had received a large payment from this company and saw my name on the list. This was a childhood friend who I reconnected with on FB. Said he saw my name on the list and he had gotten $250,000 and I should get mine. Had this guy Mr. Brad contact me. Said for $7500 I would get $250000.

    I asked if it was a legit company why pay money to get money. Was told it was to pay taxes and to make it my effect my SS. Stupid me, I sent it and delivery was set up. Then it was seized by the IRS and I needed to pay a fine of $12000 to release it but I would receive $300,000 for the trouble. Got really suspicious so my friend who had first contacted me started pressuring me.

    Long story short, the high pressure, sell things if you have to, I finally smartened up. Lost a lot of money but realized that my “friend” was actually someone who had had his FB hacked and got very angry with me for asking him questions to prove it was him. Got in contact with the friends brother who contacted the friend who feels terrible that I got sucked in by them using him.

    Had I not been very medicated and sick at the start of this, I would have had my wits about myself. These people need to be stopped. Will the FBI be interested in any information? They are still trying to get me to “help” him. Unbelievable! I have many law officials in the area but I worry they know where I live. Suggestions?


  • Jan 27, 2019 at 2:35 PM by an anonymous user from Miami, Florida, United States

    A friend said they saw my name on this list. Since I did receive Workman's Compensation at one time I thought this was for real. I definitely got caught up in this scam and have sent them close to $80,000. Meanwhile one delivery went bad and $2000 was stolen by P.O. carrier who claimed it was delivered to wrong address. I have been doing this for 3 months now and because my deliveries were not sent by the end of 2018 they are demanding another $5250.

    Cindy Allen claims she has a picture of the cashiers check ready to be sent to me upon my delivery of $5250. The check is for $320,000. There always seems to be a delivery date that they did not tell me and then I owed more money. They keep asking me if I want a refund at this point I have gone through a lot of pain and anxiety over this and just want to be compensated.

    I have depleted my savings and funds that I have saved for and lost all interest accumulated. Hoping there is someone or a lawyer that can help me. I am 76 years old living only on Social Security. If no action is taken I will report this to Laryon on ABC news.


  • Jan 22, 2019 at 12:29 PM by an anonymous user from Oak Park, Illinois, United States

    I also received a message from a cousin and determined that her facebook account had been cloned, when I was overly skeptical she even offered to give me 2K to apply for the 100K grant.

    Needless to say I rejected the offer and advised my cousin who lives across the country that her FB account had been cloned.


  • Jan 16, 2019 at 8:25 AM by an anonymous user from Avalon Beach, New South Wales, Australia

    If the rsole is named Andrew Thomas... I have already reported him to facebook. there are many scammers out there. If they are using my account please let me know.


  • Dec 11, 2018 at 8:24 AM by an anonymous user from Windhoek, Khomas, Namibia

    I think I have just been scammed by Philip Luis poker lotto. He used my friends messenger and then she said she has one 250000 south african rand I had to pay in r10 000 and would then pay the rest of the money.

    I have the bank detail of a certain w /nkosI in south africa, this money the r10000 would go to look after my 97 year old mother so I lost it paid in yesterday said they will deliver money to me. Then I can pay the rest as soon as I have received the winnings
    when I look at her profile, she said somebody hacked into her messenger.


  • Dec 10, 2018 at 10:48 AM by an anonymous user from Dallas, Texas, United States

    They have contacted me through an old friend with facebook picture.

    I was stupid enough to send some info and they want $1500 to send $150,000 via UPS to the house.

    My gut tells me this is a scam.

    My questions now are how to figure out if they have enough info to get into all my credit cards and bank info?


  • Dec 9, 2018 at 5:00 PM by an anonymous user from Pittsburg, Kansas, United States

    Same thing just happened to me. When I went to my cousin's real account and told her I thought she had been hacked, all the other one had sent me disappeared.

    Said my name was found on her "list" and I was due $120,000. All I had to do was send. Or wire. $3,400. HA! The trigger was a message I received from a known Messenger friend whose account had been cloned.


  • Dec 4, 2018 at 4:49 PM by an anonymous user from Kansas City, Kansas, United States

    I was contacted by them from the number 3178639714 that I have 100,000 coming to me and I was suppose to pay the delivery fee. I did not pay it.

    Well they almost got me. Got a message from a friend of mine to tell me about this wonderful grant and how much money they received.

    I called the number cause how could my friend be wrong. Well they texted me and I got nervous after asking me to send money.

    Got a hold of my friend through their daughter and it was all a scam.


  • Nov 10, 2018 at 11:07 AM by an anonymous user from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    I just received this by messager from a friend...thought it was a joke so I followed along, gave my phone number and street address..

    I changed my facebook password along with blocking number in my texts along with messanger.

    Anything else I need to do or worry about!


    • Nov 10, 2018 at 11:29 AM by info

      No, and don't send them your money.

    I've been told by a friend that my name was seen on the list of people that had won $100.000 in USD in a Workers Compensation once a year give away type thing.

    Supposedly 350 people out of millions of names, and mine was one that was chosen. I have to send fee's for things like insurance, delivery etc, altogether $1280 dollars, is this real?


    • Nov 7, 2018 at 5:59 AM by info

      No, it is not real, it is a scam.

      Once you are asked to send money, it is most often a scam. This is how the scammers rob their victims.


  • Nov 4, 2018 at 2:32 PM by an anonymous user from London, England, United Kingdom

    I have got caught by this scam for over £4500, I feel so gullible and such a fool to be sucked in. ? They word things to make you believe them.

    Unfortunately I did. They tell you your going to get it delivered, then within an hour,they message you and say they need more money. They make you think you will lose out if you don't pay.

  • Nov 3, 2018 at 5:36 PM by an anonymous user from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    Hi. I received this message via messenger. Supposedly from my stepmom. She told me I was on a list of winners and to "contact Katharine Rayner, she is the Agent in charge .

    Email her on wcabworkcomp@protonmail.com. Write her that you are ready to claim your winning money. Make sure you keep me posted."

    I haven't contacted the above as I always do due diligence to avoid scammers. Hope this information assists you in stopping this scam.


  • Oct 23, 2018 at 6:24 PM by an anonymous user from Houston, Texas, United States

    they just send me this message about the grant. I did send my information then they wanted my facebook email and password.

    I didn't send my password so can they steal use my information


    • Nov 1, 2018 at 9:41 AM by an anonymous user from Denver, Colorado, United States

  • Oct 19, 2018 at 12:37 AM by an anonymous user from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, United States

    Hello again, this is Dan Nakao following up on an earlier post. The organization I have in question is the Workers’ Compensation Board and is represented by a person named Lydia P Chris. She and her organization is claiming I’m entitled to a cash payment of $200,000 but first I have to submit a money transfer of $1280 to cover a “delivery fee”.

    Paying money to get money doesn’t make sense to me and I want to be assured this is a scam. This organization also uses the moniker “NGO” saying it’s a non-government organization, if that may be of any help.

    There is a FB page for this organization. Hopefully my message will be relayed to proper authorities who will track down those who are behind this scam.


  • Oct 19, 2018 at 12:19 AM by an anonymous user from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, United States

    Hello, I’m being asked by a person named Lydia Chris from the Workers Compensation Board to come up with $1280 so I can get a cash payment of $200,000.

    This definitely sounds too good to be true and I’m very suspicious about giving out money to get money.

    Regarding this transaction, I wanted to do it face to face but I was given a lame excuse about “rules and regulations” requiring me to send a money transfer. I want to make sure this is a scam just like the others that I’m reading about here.


    • Oct 19, 2018 at 8:46 AM by info

      It is a scam. Once you are asked send money to receive free money, it is a scam.


      • Oct 19, 2018 at 10:01 AM by an anonymous user from New York, United States

        Thanks again for confirming my suspicions. I’m now playing around with this person and getting her (his?) sander up by demanding that she send me routine information such as business references, email addresses and phone numbers, and now she’s threatening to withdraw my “money” if I don’t stop asking questions!

        How obvious can some people be and does she seriously think I’m some kind of fool?


      • Oct 19, 2018 at 9:42 AM by an anonymous user from New York, United States

        Thank you. This is dan and I wrote the second post that was listed as anonymous. To follow up, I just texted Lydia to ask for routine items like references, her phone number and her email address and so far she hasn’t responded.

        This person was referred to me by a family friend named Sam Miller whom I’m trying to work out a business deal with, and I hope Sam’s deal isn’t a scam like this thing apparently is. Thanks again.


  • Sep 28, 2018 at 12:09 PM by an anonymous user from Washington D.C., District of Columbia, United States

    Yes, the scam is totally real. I was just introduced with it on 9/14. A person that was connected to my family on face book that I thought was my family reach out to me.

    I've been knowing of this person since 2014. So they inbox me and said they had good news.

    Gave me this #240.261.2564 and said to tell them that my name is on they winning list.

    Well, it appeared to be believable because of knowing the person from face book.

    They wanted $750 and said I would get $200,000. You know it was believable at. So, I said I had to wait until 9/28.

    So I told them I had the funds on 9/27.
    But they wanted to wait until 9/28.

    That's when I became even more suspicious. Then they said I would have to buy 7 $100 ITunes gift cards.

    I told them I wasn't doing that. Even the so call person from face book was attempting to convince me. So, just know that you don't give money to get money.


  • Sep 21, 2018 at 6:34 PM by an anonymous user from Lubbock, Texas, United States

    I fell for it and gave them my information. don't know what's gonna happen now.


    • Sep 21, 2018 at 7:19 PM by info

      They will contact you and attempt trick you into sending them money. But, do not send them your money or any more information.


  • Sep 20, 2018 at 12:56 PM by an anonymous user from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    I got scammed by this guy named Blair Lewis and this guy named Bob. The two said they want to send money to us and they said that we are win 500.000, which was a lie. So people do not fall for it. And also they are getting the FedEx fake people to join in with them so don't fall for it people


  • Sep 13, 2018 at 12:21 PM by an anonymous user from Valparaiso, Indiana, United States

    I got a friend request from a nephew I hadn't heard from before, accepted and he told me about tis WACB and kept encouraging me to try it giving me the phone # and name.

    I got suspicious when he never answered personal questions. So glad I checked. As with all scams, it's too good to be true


  • Sep 12, 2018 at 1:43 PM by an anonymous user from Huntington Beach, California, United States

    Unfortunately I bought into this scam and lost $17,000 dollars. My Iphone was hacked. The perpetrators took over the identity of two of my contacts who urged me to participate. This went on during the entire month of August.

    I sent deposits to bank accounts, bought $2,000.00 in Itune cards, wired money at Walmart.

    These people are very convincing. I finally was able to talk to the person whose identity they were using and he knew nothing about this scam.

    Needless to say I was devastated. I filed a police report and filed a report on line with the FBI.

    I don’t have the money to hire an attorney. Please don’t fall for this scam.


  • Sep 3, 2018 at 10:05 AM by an anonymous user from Burnley, England, United Kingdom

    Received via email:

    "I received a Facebook messenger message from a Donna Monisola. She says her uncle received $150,000 from the USDPCAD (department of people compensation appeals board program) and that I should contact an agent by text a MR. William Baker at 1-978-310-1273 to see if I was on a winning list. I did text him and he told me after a few texts that I did qualify and to send him my full name, address, age and mobile number which I did.

    He then messaged me back saying it will cost anywhere from $500 to 10,000 to pay for file fees and shipping depending on the amount I requested $50,000 to 1,000,000."


  • Aug 12, 2018 at 9:27 PM by an anonymous user from Alexis Creek, British Columbia, Canada

    I was contacted by a Kenneth Moore Sr he said he was a representatve of WCAB and that I could win my prize if I paid a small fee.

    For $650 I would get $50 000.00 or for $750 I would get $80 000.00 or for $1500.00 I would get $150 000.00 and finally for $2500.00 I would get $250 000.00 prize.

    I had to choose one and could pay for it either with a credit card or purchase iTunes cards in the amount chosen.

    I would then have to take pictures of the cards along with receipts illustrating they were activate cards in the amount illustrated, upload and send to Kenneth Moore Sr.

    He hacked my aunt Joyce's facebook and made it sound like she had received her money and saw my name on the list gave me a link to follow.


  • Aug 8, 2018 at 7:30 PM by an anonymous user from Johnson City, Tennessee, United States

    This WCAB scam almost gives itself away by using a phony name and address to send your money to start the process. They claim UPS requires the money to deliver the larger amount. I contacted UPS fraud division to report this.


  • Aug 8, 2018 at 2:55 PM by an anonymous user from Wilmington, Delaware, United States

    I received a facebook message from a "friend" asking if I knew about the Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB)> I said I had not and he went on to tell me how great it was and did I want the information.

    I said I would research all the info myself. I looked it up and for sure it was a scam, took a picture of is and sent it back to the "friend" and blocked him. I am pretty sure that it was not said, friend. That his account had been hacked.


  • Aug 7, 2018 at 12:18 PM by an anonymous user from Longmont, Colorado, United States

    I think they hacked a friends text message and she/they are telling me to call a number and sign up for WCAB. She would never answer my direct question of "which Grant did she apply for? ", so I started to think this was a scam. She said she received $200,000 delivered to her doorstep ...seemed fishy to me.


    • Aug 28, 2018 at 2:49 AM by an anonymous user from Charlotte, North Carolina, United States

      I have a family member that said she actually got the cash delivered to her by UPS. She paid the taxes and paid off all her bills. So, I don't know...


      • Aug 28, 2018 at 6:18 AM by info

        Tried contacting that family member directly by telephone and ask he/her to verify. This is because scammers are tricking Facebook users into giving them access to their accounts.

        Once the scammers have access to the same accounts, they will contact the family members of the users whose accounts they have gained access to, and attempt to scam the family members by pretending to be the same users.

    A friend's Facebook account was hacked. The hacker sent me the WCAB message. I smelled a rat straight away. He didn't sound like my friend, so I engaged him in idle chit-chat for a while.

    My friend doesn't have time for idle chit-chat, especially at 7 am. I suppose the hacker realised I was suspicious when I told him the story sounded weird because he stopped responding. Criminal!

    Beware of anyone claiming you have a free federal government grant from the federal wcab, it's a SCAM. I was contacted by Charles Hutchison out of Wisconsin. He and other scammers Joseph Donald Dallas Texas took thousands from me. Charles Hutchison also pulled a SCAM dealing with Nigeria.

    He said that his niece was I getting her dads inheritance. Another scam, Charles Hutchison even threaten my life. Beware I have a list of their names. Someone needs to put them in prison.

    I have received the same contact via text which supposedly was from my daughters mother in law. She (they) asked if I had heard the good news? I immediately thought my daughter was pregnant.

    I texted about my daughter and she didn't reply about that she just told me my name was on the list and asked if I had the money?

    I became unsure at this point and asked if they put it directly in her bank? She replied they delivered it to her door. She offered to put me in touch with the compensation board via a link and asked me if I wanted it. I became suspicious and looked up this site as 350.000 sounded too good to be true. As they say if it's too good to be true, it is.

    The other thing. Was that I am not very close to this woman and kept wondering why she was contacting me. Thank God I didn't get past the texting stage and I hope they can't get my phone number from Facebook. I will try to block them and remove my phone from Facebook.

    A co-worker of mine(Wendy Cooper)asked if I had gotten a check from WCAB. I told her that I had never heard of them. I asked her why. She gave me the following info:(631)734 0770
    Text him now that you heard about him from me and you're ready to claim your winning money get back to me so that I can tell you what to do next... Agentmarkcole1234@gmail.com & told me to send a text message to the phone number & a text message to the email address.

    This is what I received prior to this: "
    Have you heard the good news from WCAB already? It was the Annual bonus from (Workers Compensation Appeal Board)...have you heard from them? They are having a promo to help Retired, Veterans Employed and Unemployed, Youth, Old, Deafs and disabled with cash in the society and I saw your name too on their list when I received my money from FEDEX. I got $74,000.00 cash delivery from the promo and I saw your name among the winner's list when I was signing the delivery papers, haven't you got yours?
    My money was delivered to me at my doorstep with check then the FedEx team follow down to the bank to have it cash out before leaving bank.

    Well, I think you should contact the agent that helped me with my claiming, Do you want me to tell you how to do that?

    She told me that she didn't talk to me yesterday via Messenger on Facebook between 12:02pm-12:24pm. I sent her copies of what she had written to me.

    She told me that today is the first day that she has talked to me since Tuesday 7/24/18 at 9:29pm.


  • Jul 27, 2018 at 10:26 AM by an anonymous user from Dayton, Ohio, United States

    Ok, so I have been reading the comments on here and would like to let this web community know that I too was approached with this scam.

    These grifters are getting pretty advanced in their delivery as mine was actually a 3 day set-up before the grift was set in motion.

    First off, I should tell you that I recently broke my hand and have been off work for awhile. Not only am I in need of a supplement to my savings, I am going stir crazy at home with nothing to do with my day.

    I am a furniture mover by trade and it is a high-paced endurance job and being off work has found idle hands and a mischevious streak. It stared by a friend request from a friend's mom, ( flag #1, she doesn't know me). I then received a call from"Steve" saying that my grant for financial aid went through and they needed my debit card# to deposit the funds.

    Thankfully my account was actually overdrawn a few odd dollars and they informed me that a grant could not be deposited into an overdrawn account,( flag#2, deposits into overdrawn accounts brings them back above board).

    I told them to call me back in a half hour and I will borrow the money to put my account in line. I then proceeded to call my bank and cancel my card, order a new one and put my bank on alert for fishy requests.

    So it was on to phase 2 of their hustle. I received a message from my buddies mom with a story similar to everyone else's about seeing my name on the list and to blah...blah..... Here's their a number and to blah..blah...you all know the drill.

    I went to her profile and it was 1 picture, female was her only info and no posts....... whatsoever,( flag#3). I decided to have some SERIOUS fun. I responded acting like an illiterate and desperate for cash hick.

    Acting excited and relieved that my savior's were here to pull me out of the dire straits that my texts explained. Then came the application, mind you they didn't ask for money yet or my debit/SS card numbers,( they had that info already from the previous interaction).

    so here is where it gets fun, ready? I apologized and said" I don't feel comfortable giving out my pedigree info without verifying the entity requesting it or, at the leather, the credentials of the representative taking the info. That is when he assured me that while I was right in being cautious that they were legit and I had nothing to worry about.

    he even sent an award letter from a previous winner to prove that it is real.the award was straight out of Microsoft publisher from one of their templates.

    The document was scrutinized and the subject of various jokes as I now have my whole family jerking this person around. I kept persisting in verification and apologizing stating that I wasn't trying to be difficult, and needed this to not be a scam. They then started internet yelling,(all caps) at me saying why am I not able to get to the bottom of this email and to fill out the application and send the money so I could receive my awarded grant. OOPS!

    I stated that they never asked me for any money before and that I felt like I was being intimidated. They tried covering their tracks stating that it was explained to me earlier.

    This is where I got really fun. I then told them that I was just nformed that from this text on I was to disclose to them that this conversation was being monitored from here on out by the Montgomery county field office of the FBI and agent Huckabee was my liason and overseeing the investigation.

    Then, smugly, I said" and his credentials are blah...blah...yada yada yada! I was ready to burst into uncontrollable laughter thinking about the look on their face.

    They then, unbelievably still texting, tryed to fight or flight with the rest of their replies. Mind you, we are going into day 3 of this recipricating and I'm sure they were squirming and highly upset given the time they had invested in this " illiterate and desperate hick" only to be spinning their wheels and going nowhere but to answer questions to me and my imaginary G-man.

    I told them that,( straight out if Pulp Fiction) you are the SHEEP and I am the WOLF and Mr FBI is the sheperd and dinder of lost children. After that I couldn't text them anymore. THEY BLOCKED ME!

    I then went to the original contact, my friends mom's ghost profile and, can you dig it, I was again blocked by our friendly grifters! I know I didn't really make a dent in the scammers pride, but I did keep one of them from scamming someone else for three days.

    Chalk on we up for us WOLVES in SHEEP'S clothing. I had so much fun and kept myself busy while avoiding being scammed! I know that this issue in not a laughing matter, I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone and there are people in place to rid us of these parasites. Good day and God bless!

  • Jun 18, 2018 at 3:37 PM by info

    Receive via email:

    "The "Workers Compensation Board of Appeals (WCAB)/Agent Kelly Moore" scam is alive and well in June 2018.

    I am one who is always on the warpath against any type of scam, & I make it a mission to spread the word to others to ALWAYS have those "Scam Alert Antennae" up to stay safe. This time, however, it took me a minute to believe my own antennae and verify that what I was dealing with really was a scam.

    He (assuming it was a "he") hacked into the Facebook account of an aunt I don't hear from often and kept his questions, answers, and comments short and generic enough to not trip himself up - even though the conversation did seem odd. He didn't bring up the WCAB right away, but when he did and said he "saw (my) name on the beneficiary list when Fed Ex brought (her) (her) money", my "antennae" prompted me to start asking some questions and continuing the conversation while I searched "WCAB/Agent Kelly Moore" online.

    The scam alert popped up immediately, and I replied to his request to call the phone number he gave me immediately by telling him I would actually be giving his info to our local TV station to make sure others didn't fall for the scam. And I did. Hopefully, some would-be victims will at least be protected from this scam and be reminded to keep those "Scam Alert Antennae" up."

I blocked the profile..and muted the messenger...They wrote how people deserve this more than Congress..but UPS would never hand money..and you have notified an agent and I get no services, how am I on a list like that.

      Just that FedX paid the up-front money for her and 7 hours later she received her check and the bank cashed it.

      She also saw my name on the list of winners when she received her check. I was suspicious from the start and didn't go any further with it. This came through on Messenger. If it looks too good, beware!!

        Ignore them, or report them to the police.


  • May 11, 2018 at 1:29 PM by an anonymous user from Colima, Mexico

    Today at 6 am, they contacted me, they pretended to be an uncle who lives in USA, I live in Mexico; they told me that my name was on their list, so they give a number and told me that claim my money, fortunately the message could not be sent, so they give me an e-mail direction hemsworthl08@gmail.com, at this point, I still believed that it was my uncle who was speaking, because he told me that he had received the money, so I was such a fool for have contacted by hangouts to this people and and follow the conversation, they said me that Wilson David Lee would help me to send my money, and my "uncle" followed the conversation through facebook messenger, he asked me how much money they were going to give me, that if I was already contacting them and stuff like that.

    After this, my "uncle" disconnected from facebook. So they wanted to make me pay the shipping taxes for UPS, and to be honest, I don't have any money or bank accounts, and I told them I could not pay, they wanted to reach an agreement,
    they asked me to deposit $ 2000, but as I mentioned,I have no money.

    Then, they told me that they helped me by paying $1000; after this, they said "REMEMBER TO KEEP THIS INFORMATION TO YOURSELF WE ARE GOING ON A BREAK WOULD LET YOU KNOW AS SOON AS I'M BACK", that was two hours ago.

    I did not know anything about this type of scam because I live here, so I looked for information about, and found this site, I searched for my real uncle in facebook, and I found his real account, his account had been cloned, maybe he is a victim too, and I left him a message.

    Now I can only hope that they don't do anything wrong with my data, although something tells me that it is too late.

    I too, received a message on facebook messenger using a profile that actually he was related too someone I knew. Very persistant, told me all about , I kept asking him questions about the family , at one point he said why so many questions.

    Then he gave me the number to text 347 455-0135. Got a hold of them I asked her name which was Linda from new York. Wanted me to do money grams or western union , I told her I cannot . Then asked for Itune cards. I thought I would play around and have some fun.

    I took pics of used Itunes cards and after several hours which I think she was getting tired of me. I sent them thru e-mail. She comes back a few mins and said " they are all used"? Why would you do that'? I said this is a scam you do not send money to get money ? " She said " do you want your winnings to go to someone else ? I said No a victim you mean. Leave people alone and quit using fake profiles. This is a scam, I told her.

    I think these people are so brainwashed they don't listen to nobody. I told her that I would contact the Attorney General in New Your if she doesn't leave me alone. They wanted $750.00 and the delivery guy would give me $150.000 in cash, yeah right.

    I said I don't have that amount, and unable to raise that amount, so I ordered that the amount of money paid be returned to me,he kept on persisting the extra be paid, is this a scam or should take notice of my friend and continuing to raise the extra, have I lost my money.

    I received this message from Health and Human Services posing as a church member. Some how I got sucked into giving my name, age, email address address and phone number.

    I felt uncomfortable about telling them my monthly income. When I looked at the profile I realized there were not real because they did not have the mutual friends I did.

    I received the same message but gave information will this harm me


  • Feb 21, 2018 at 6:27 PM by an anonymous user from Panama City, Florida, United States

    I received the same thing from a personal friend telling me he had received 50000.00 and wanted to know if I had received mine. I told him I didn’t know what he was talking about. He sent me the agents name Kathy Powell at 334-569-6949 and told me to send her a message to see if my name was still on list.

    He has my name and phone number as it is on FB also, said he would send it to Agent. He sent all this to my messenger. I googled it and read that it’s a scam.

    But I did not give him any information that he couldn’t have got off of my FB wall.

    I don’t know what to do about this or if I should do anything?

      I got the same kind of scam but they used a cousin of mines on messenger; he said he won $90,000 but it was not because I am trying to get in touch with California wcba.

      I believe it is to let them know about it and have not had any luck getting to talk to anybody on the phone

    A friend of mine got in touch with me about this beneficiary list and told me to call..so I did. This woman Mary Rogers said congratulations you have been chosen to receive $100,000,000 ...my friend said he already got his money and that it’s not a scam...I didn’t do anything yet, but he said he sent $700 in for delivery and processing of the money.. she said it from the WCAB


    • Dec 14, 2017 at 1:25 PM by info

      It is a scam. The scammers steal money from their potential victims by asking them to send money for delivery and processing fees before they will receive their so-called compensation. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will take it and disappear without delivering what they have promised.
