    I was contacted by someone on Instagram who said they saw my name on the winners' list. When they saw their own name. I paid no attention to it when this person c ontacted me but then, two or three weeks later she contacted me again with the name of the agent (“Agent Walter Leonard”) and suggested I just text him as long as I was online.

    So I did and he replied right away and wanting my full name and address so I gave him an abbreviated version of my address and name and he got back to me moments later telling me that I have won $100,000 a d explaining how my name was randomly selected for my continued use of Instagram.

    Agent Leonard’s next email to me asked for my age, sex, marital status, income status, and a few other personal info questions before explaining that upon receipt of my information my money would arrive on the doorstep within 3 hours.

    “What is your marital status, age, sex, worth of income and occupation... ..Finally, you have to pay for Case file fee and the shipping fund, so that we can bring the money to your doorstep in the next 3 hours from now, so that the management can sign your winning document.”

    I guess it was that part about the shipping fund that pushed it over the edge.

    So, it was a good ride while it lasted.

    My friend just posted that she was delivered a large amount of cash from Cheveron global co. She said it was delivered by ups courier. Is this legitimate? She had to give them her personal information so they could be sure and send it to the right person.

    • Posted: Mar 4, 2018 1:06 PM by info

      It is not legitimate, it is a scam or fake. And, the person who sent you the message is not your friend, it a cyber criminal who may have hacked your friend's account and using it to trick you.

      Contact your friend via email or telephone to verify. Or, ask the person questions only your friend would know.

    I was contacted January 2018 by a Mr. Morris claiming that he is with Texaco global and that I have one 500K! I mediately thought OK this is a scam, he reassured me that it was not and that he also told me my friend from where I grew up in Larnerd Kansas also had won 500K!

    So I instantly started messaging my friend and she was coming back saying yeah I already have my money this and that this and that and she was also telling me that yeah do it do it do it it’s not a scam but the entire time I was texting my friend I started realizing that the texting style and the vocabulary did not sound like my friend. So I started thinking maybe somebody had hacked my friends Facebook turns out I was right my friends Facebook had been hacked and somebody from Texaco global was talking to me through my friends Facebook trying to act like my friend!!

    The worst part about this is Mr. Morris has already convinced me to buy to iTunes cards thankfully it was only a $25 and a $15 but rest of sure I’m not buying any more but unfortunately now I have to go in and change everything about my Facebook!! And now I really need to subscribe to that LifeLock because now he also has my address he has my age and I think that’s all I gave him but I would have to go back and review my messages with him but thankfully those to iTunes cards are all I sent him!

    This Mr. Morris guy will tell you he is a hard-core Christian and that he could never scam people out of money he sounds so legitimate I fell for his tracks and I honestly cannot believe that happened I knew that ringing in my ear was coming from somewhere and now I know that the ringing in my ear was Jesus telling me don’t do this!!

    A new Facebook friend, who only knows one of my friends, asked if I'd heard the good news. She said we were two of ten winners of $500,000 from Texaco Global Company Promo Best List, and referred me to that promoter's Facebook site. Aside from asking for my address, they even asked for my Facebook password, which I later changed.The other eight names were provided, and at least they existed on Facebook.

    "We embarked on a worldwide promotion for Disabled, Unemployed, Worker's, Retired, Young & Old people, A sophisticated automated database to randomly select E-mail accounts that frequently surf the Internet You won the sum of $500.000.00"
    Note the suspicious apostrophe splice in "Worker's;" it should be "Workers."

    Just got the scammer tonight thru a friend of mine, who said she won. And wanted me to friend the scammer on line, but I think they are using her account and it really wasn’t her I was talking to. Found out that there are three accounts in her name and it wasn’t her I was talking to. They have a site on Facebook.

    Last night I received a message that a friend of mine had received $100,000.00 from the Texico Global Award Promo. By accident, she saw my name and facebook picture on a list and I also was a winner. I thought the messages had come from her, but this morning all our conversation was deleted. In their conversation, there were misspelled words and poor grammar used. At first, because of the messages, I got from my friend I thought it must be legit. After thinking it over, I decided to keep my $1.500 and they could keep their $100.000. Please tell me this is a hoax. They repeated several times I should tell no one. They gave me the name of the person to whom I should send my money through a MoneyGram.
