The "Mr. Mike Weirsky" Lottery Donation Scam

A donation of $1,500,000.00 USD was donated to you by Mr. Mike Weirsky, a power-ball jackpot lottery winner of $273 Million. Reply to mikeweirsky445@gmail.com for claim.

Remember, once they (scammers) have received their potential victims' personal information, they will use the information to trick the potential victims into sending money, which they will claim is for some advance fees, which will cover banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax that the potential victims need to pay before they can receive the so-called donated money. But, if the victims send their money, the scammers will steal it and may continue to trick the victims into sending more money, with the promise of receiving the donated money the scammers claim they would receive.

Recipients of the Mr. Mike Weirsky lottery donation scam emails are asked not to respond to or follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the email messages instead.

It is important to remember that when someone contacts you, claiming that you have won the lottery or you are the recipient of millions of dollars, and asks you to send money in order to receive your lottery winnings or prizes, it is a SCAM. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to receive their prizes or winnings. And, why would lottery winners who are allegedly donating millions of dollars to you, want you to send a few hundred or thousand dollars for banking and transfer costs, insurance payments or tax? Well, the money that the scammers want the victims to send, which the scammers claim is for taxes, bank transfer cost, insurance or other expenses, is what the scammers will steal. And, the victims, on the other hand, will never receive the winnings, prizes or money that they were promised.

So, once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.

    I'm right in the middle of this scam and as soon as I have more details plan to turn this over to the FBI.

    It was a wonderful dream for a moment. I talked to him about a foundation but he said he would need therefore my email address and password. That´s absolutely fishy and unreasonable so of cause I did nothing. It´s horrible that there is nothing you can do about those people or is there?

    Another scam:

    "Attn: You have a charity donation of $1,500,000.00 USD from Mr. Mike Weirsky, a power-ball jackpot lottery winner of $273 Million USD. Please reply to mikeweirsky445@outlook.com for more information."

    In my situation they got a bit more sophisticated in their quest to scam. Everything initially happened through Twitter(Mike J. W@matty_matty4L) until he asked for my # which I shared. After hearing my story he was willing to help me pay off some of my bills especially my mortgage and credit card. I questioned why he was doing this and he said he just want to help people. He further went on to share pics of ppl he supposedly helped. He was able to get my name, address and DOB ‘for verification purposes’. Then he told me of an online bank I should sign up for as he was going to wire me the money needed to pay off my bills.

    I signed up and he initially said he was going to send me $75,000 through FedEx(complete with tracking # and all). In this account he ‘wired’ $375,000.00 into it.

    I googled the bank and it exists however certain links do not work as in an official website and the typos for certain words were questionable. Also the chat feature although it was ‘live chat’ is not however as you’re signing onto the site an external chat comes on as if they attached a separate application to the bank app to try and legitimize it. They even have a feature for you to email the chat content to yourself. I guess I was asking too many questions as too many things were not adding up, they froze my funds because I am to send them a fee of $1050 to request my ATM card and checkbook. Mr Mike(or Mike Senior as the phone contact suggestion shows) started becoming adamant about me getting these items so I could pay my bills. I told him that I do not have the $$$ so he then suggested that he wire the money to my bank so I could pay the fee that way I would be able to use the funds ‘straight away’ to pay off my bills. He is going to need my banking info such as my username/password/routing and account number so he could ‘monitor’ the transactions live.

    He’s trustworthy and I will be on the line the whole time and he wouldn’t be able to do anything without my permission the whole time. I told him I was not comfortable and he knows too much of my personal info as it is. I refused to give him my info and let him know that I don’t have much but he is not going to steal what little I have by way of my identity if that’s the endgame. He got my routing/account number but I know with that there is no way he could get into my account with the info he had. I told him wire the money to my account to pay the fees and I will then be able to release the funds back to him because with help like what he claim he’s providing, I’ll rather continue to struggle. He started telling me I’m stressing him out and I have trust issues. I said to him, funny I watched your tapes when you were accepting your check and you don’t sound anything like the dude who won. You have a foreign accent not the good old American accent that I heard from the actual winner. He said his mother is from Greece and I countered what does her being from Greece have to do with how you sound versus the real winner. What are you trying to hide?

    I did a search of the New Jersey # he was using to contact me and it came back to no one at all which is another flag for me. All this happened between Friday and yesterday. I ended up blocking him on Twitter and I totally blocked him from calling/texting me. I have all the receipts of his deception and I will make a formal police report as well as tell my story here so no one else get caught due to desperation in circumstances. We all hope there is a good person out there that is genuinely willing to help. I didn’t get caught in this web of sophisticated lies but he does have my name DOB, address and account number unfortunately. I do have safeguards built in from my bank that would alert me and the bank if anything nefarious is tried. His bank is SIBEU.com and his gift is ‘Mike jW. giveaway program’. He’s claiming is is Mike Weirsky the New Jersey sole mega million winner from Alpha. He posts pics and videos of the actual winner along with some now questionable pics of people he has helped.

    I was asked to send my SSN an Driver's license number an picture of my driver's license. I said I will not. Then asked for a green dot card I dont have one. Go purchase one $200 document. Sorry dont have the extra $200. So I wouldnt give them info.

  • July 21, 2021 at 7:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Loudoun, Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    I got one on Twitter I actually reached out to him to see what he would say. He asked about my debt and how much it was for each. Strange out of the all the debt he picked credit cards to payoff. He then said and I quote "I'll pay all your credit cards now" then proceeds to send me a bank account # and routing number to use to pay them off

  • July 19, 2021 at 9:12 PM by an anonymous user from: Orange, Chester, New York, United States

    I was a total fool and believed in him totally. I am now 30,000.00 in debt. I will never get out from under I am 77 years old and was so desperate . Now I am 10 times worst off than I was.

  • July 17, 2021 at 1:09 AM by an anonymous user from: Central Business District, Rochester, New York, United States

    Well, I was almost scammed as well by ole Mikey.

    He preys after women and those in need, which in today's world, everyone is hurting. Considering I met the full criteria, I came close to the gift card part of the scam, but immediately had a red giant flag bop me in the head. Unfortunately, after initially talking to him, this b*****d has my name and address and quite frankly, I'm nervous. He texted me from a NJ number, which is just hours away from me...UGH I should mention he offered to give me $35k.

    He made some big mistakes with me though and tomorrow I will be calling Fed Ex to send them the name of the driver, the photo of the driver and all the reference numbers he gave me.

    He uses several twitter accounts, facebook, instagram, gmail and who knows what else. The second he asked me to buy a $100 gift card, was my red flag moment.

    I've read he can become irate and aggressive when he doesn't succeed so I just texted him that I was unable to purchase the gift card. I told him it was odd to ask for a gift card in the first place and said thanks anyway. I immediately blocked him on my cell and social media account.

    I also reported him and will be exposing him tomorrow to all my followers on Twitter...and I have thousands of followers.

    Please do not engage with this individual. Report and block asap.

    Even me, he said his name is Michael_j_weirsky_2081

  • January 9, 2021 at 7:58 PM by an anonymous user from: Hawaii, Hilo, Hawaii, United States

    I feel like a dummy to believe this. Messaged me via IG and made it believable that he was sincere about the entire matter. He works along side with a Forest Gipson and a Eunice Mugo. Like I said I believed them, they sent text messages from google voice numbers, then they requested to $150 then dropped it to $100. wanted to be paid via PayPal or CashApp. I had PayPal so I did, $100 because it sounded very believable and sincere. Even quotes from the bible. The first Paypal when to Eunice Mugo which was then returned because an error popped up. I should've known at this point to not try again. I was gullable and resent it this time to a Forest Gipson. Was asked to send it via friends and family because they wouldn't be charged the fee and PayPal will basically deny helping you to recover the money. Yep just tried letting PayPal know and it basically got automatically denied. Please beware and do not fall victim like I did. I am now out of $100, changed all my passwords, and learned a very expensive lesson.

  • December 11, 2020 at 3:18 AM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Little Rock, Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

    He is texting me on Twitter this moment, as I am writing this comment. I reported this, as well, to Twitter.

    • May 17, 2021 at 12:23 PM by an anonymous user from: Mayes, Pryor, Oklahoma, United States

      Apparently Twitter didn't heed your report because he is still doing this on Twitter.

  • December 9, 2020 at 12:59 PM by an anonymous user from: Roseland, New Jersey, United States

    Yup I nipped it in the bud after coming out and investigating on Google as it smelled like a scam. got a couple of texts and IG direct messages but deleting them as they come in. response I got back from the person on instagram just didn't sound correct or like the real Mike Wiersky when I watched his video from the lottery commission. Plan to delete any emails I get as well. I just wanted to see how far it would go until they asked for my bank info or any other personal info.

    • March 1, 2021 at 7:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

      He's messaging me now asking for my address. Really scary

    • January 30, 2021 at 4:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Dallas, Texas, United States

      The person you were talking to is really from Nigeria, Abeokuta and is in fact a scammer. They are labeled Yahoo Boys and its all a game to them to see how much money they can steal from people.

  • November 30, 2020 at 6:31 PM by an anonymous user from: Dallas, Texas, United States

    This happened to me as well. One guy contacted me on POF and tried to get my account information. 2 more tried on Instagram. One want me to buy $200 in Steam Wallet cards and send the codes after I scratched them off on the back of the card. The 3rd wanted me to join in idme.com to send me money. I tried contacting Mike Wiersky via Facebook but never got a response. All 3 of these scammers and their "FedEx" didn't seem to speak good English due to their horrid Grammer. BE AWARE. Especially women. Uggg

  • November 22, 2020 at 9:33 PM by an anonymous user from: Ashburn, Virginia, United States

    Hi, this just happened to me on Instagram. Guy claimed to be Mike Wiersky and for the small price of $50 Amazon gift card he would send me $50,000. I played along for a bit then reported. Please don't fall for this! Just report it & block.

    • March 1, 2021 at 7:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

      I’m playing along now he’s asking for my address

    • December 25, 2020 at 9:51 AM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

      I got sucked into buying a gift card but did not give him the code. I'm still talking to him on a text private FedEx agent Richard lol now he wants me to dish out 400 to 600$ for delivery fees. I think he hacked my Facebook because now my email and password has been changed and I don't know how to call about getting it fixed can anyone help me.

  • November 3, 2020 at 8:56 AM by an anonymous user from: Bullhead City, Arizona, United States

    He had someone who said he was with Fed Ex contact me & said I needed to pay $50 to get the money shipped to me. I emailed FedEx with all the information to alert them after he sent me a picture of a Fed Ex employee ID.

  • October 24, 2020 at 4:43 PM by an anonymous user from: Lithonia, Georgia, United States

    I feel like I am fooling and like a dummy because michael weirsky and his agents were a very bad fraud... Guess what I spent almost $3,500 to pay fees with ebay gift cards since day one.. They made me p****d off and I demand someone finds his a*s and put him in the jail. Pay me back for what I paid for... He asked me to go purchased a $100 nike card today and he said this wasn't what he want and asked me to purchase itunes and I promised myself to not make pay for him. I found that he is really awful scam.

  • October 17, 2020 at 11:06 AM by an anonymous user from: Edgewater, Maryland, United States

    Please know that this scam has migrated to Instagram as well. The gist is the same - though now the requests include purchase of gift cards (Steam cards or other).

  • October 10, 2020 at 8:51 AM by an anonymous user from: New York, United States

    I got a friend request last night from him. I answered it and we talked for 3 hours. It is now 9:45 am 10/10/20 and I am the phone with him right now.Hevwants to know when I am contacting my bank to get my reddit limit raised on my Visa. I thought I would google him,and found this post. So glad It is exactly word for word. Going to hang up and block him as soon as I stop typing. Beware people,don't get scammed Like they say " If it's too good to be true,it isn't. Thank you for publishing this story!

  • October 7, 2020 at 11:42 AM by an anonymous user from: Seagoville, Texas, United States

    I got the email or note I do not remember which one I was told that mikel weirsky had won the mega millions lottery and that he is giving out $50,000 each to 200 random chosen people.

    I responded and I was given a phone number for mikel and he texted me and told me to not give the information to anyone.

    I was told to send $100 through cash app and I would get a claim number

    like a dummy I did this and he did send me the claim number later in the day he texted me and said I now owe $150 for some sort of delivery fee he does have my home address and my cell phone number but right now I am not sure if this is legit or not he has texted me several times and he seems to be sincere

    just wanted to put this out there

    • January 9, 2021 at 7:30 PM by an anonymous user from: Hawaii, Hilo, Hawaii, United States

      I just received the same messages and phone calls. like a dummy I did the $100 as well and the "agent" is asking for $150. At this point made me feel even worse. Then dare uses God's name.

      At this point he told me to go get a green dot card and activate it. after reading this, I deleted him, unfollow and blocked him. I shouldv'e known by the messages not being able to read

  • September 27, 2020 at 4:41 PM by an anonymous user from: Rancho Cucamonga, California, United States

    I just got a message that I would be given $20000.00. I instantly got on my computer to find out if this was a scam and found this page. He wanted my Full name, address, and cell number so his agent could deliver the money. I asked how much it would cost me and he said after verification. I would me charged a delivery fee. He even quoted a bible verse to "prove" he was legit. Didn't give him any info and blocked him.

    I just received a message on Instagram saying I was chosen to receive 30000 and asked for my full name address and phone number so it can be forwarded to the delivery agent in charge of your winning, I requested proof of who it is and what your planning to do. I received a response of these are videos of previous winners with a video attached of an older gentleman boasting about a Fedex package with the money in it, and Another with a lady thanking someone for her hospital bed from somewhere in Texas.

  • September 14, 2020 at 12:04 AM by an anonymous user from: Mississippi, United States

    September 6, 2020 I’m received this same scam on my Instagram account. Same foundation etc offering me up to $40,000. I responded back with a comment for him to send me a video of himself Mr. Weirsky with him actually saying my name so I would know it’s really him. I didn’t get a video back. However, I just now received a new comment a week later still saying it’s really him. I don’t believe it and Glad I found this. Is there a way to report this scammer to Instagram. There’s no way to copy his messages to me here on Instagram to forward it anyone. What can I do?

    • November 28, 2020 at 10:56 PM by an anonymous user from: Cuyahoga, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, United States

      To all concerned this is purely a SCAM, you will find it on WHATSAPP as stated above. The text and phone number he gives is out of Washington it is as follows 1-360-889-8059 even though he claims to have won in the state of New Jersey. The gift card he request are EBAY in increments of 200.00 and the agent he uses is a woman, who is suppose to work for FEDEX, her EMAIL is <Agent LAURAJEAN JACKSON@ Gmail.com PLEASE SHARE

    I believe its happening right now to me on Twitter. Username who contaced me is https://twitter.com/lOurMikeWrld . I received a message weds night stating:

    "Hey! My name is Mike Weirsky the $273 million Lottery winner from Port Richey Congratulations &amp;#127882; you won! You have been picked among those getting $200,000 for this week from the ongoing giveaway program! Are you ready to claim?"

    I wrote back and congratulated him. Then received another message stating;

    "Yeah I believe this a great opportunity you, I’m ready to help you if probably you are ready to help yourself, and please don’t link my profile with someone else. You need to be honest with me and do whatever I ask you to do here."

    I wrote back asking what I need to do to claim it. He has not responded so far.

    I reported this account to twitter as I believe it is a scam. I'll let twitter handle it.

    Its terrible that there are people really struggling right now, me included as I lost my job of 10 years cus of covid. I know not to give out my info ever, but in these times, I can see how people would jump at a chance to win something.

    Remember, if its too good to be true, it most likely is.

    I'm so glad I looked into this before sending any info. Whoever this is, is quite ridiculous.

    Got a friend request on Facebook. After accepting it I got a message right away.

    "Hello this is Mike weirsky powerball winner, Congratulations you have been randomly picked among those I will be giving $50,000, are you ready to get your winning?"

    Looked into it. Total scam.

    I literally asked him how much is it going to be to get the money?

    This is what he had to say,

    "Just a Amazon code of $50 to get you activated and the money will be delivered to your doorstep."

    I was like what?

    Then he says

    "A Amazon card. Just get it and send a pics of it to me on here and the receipt. So you can get activated."

    Hahahahhaaaa okay. I preceeded with. "Riiigghhttt!

    Sorry but nice try. QUIT SCAMMING PEOPLE. GET A LIFE."

    No response back.

    And he's now blocked.

    Have a good day yall. Always research before giving in!

    The supposed Mike Weirsky is using Instagram for an insta scam account. He contacts you and asks for your Paypal email. Easy enough right? Well, then he asks you to go purchase a 100.00 Amazon card and post a picture with the back of the card scratched off and a pic of the receipt. The person then states they will send you 5000.00 after you have done this. So they get you for the 100.00 and they won't send you the 5000.00. You can easily see from the time they ask you to go buy a gift card to get the money that they are scammers. BEWARE!

    • July 23, 2020 at 2:23 AM by an anonymous user from: Beaverton, Oregon, United States

      What if he is only asking for your "pay me" link to your PayPal or cashapp? Can he scam you that way?

The perpetrators are not only scamming but they are attacking vulnerable people who are often in dire financial situations and this just compounds the h**l they are going through when they find out this is a scam.

  • May 1, 2020 at 2:08 PM by an anonymous user from: Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada

    I had this happened to me on Instagram; @michael_weirsky256 sent me a direct message saying that (as one of his first 200 followers) I have a chance to claim $20,000 if I give out my full name, my address, and my phone number. At first, I ask for proof. And I received testimonies that looks legit. I keep getting a gut feeling that this offer is too good to be true, so I told him that I need to think about it (which bought me enough time to unfollow the account, remove the follow, and report it). Now, I would be lying if I said that I wasn't tempted. I mean, just because I have times where I'm desperate for money doesn't mean that I would be stupid enough to give away personal info online. While I am still debating on whether or not if it's legit, I feel like I'm completely missing out if it was (especially since my birthday is this Sunday, and it would have been the birthday present of a lifetime).

    Though on the other hand, I would feel bad for the real Michael Weirsky if this is a scam because why would a lottery winner give out large sum of money to random strangers like that? It's almost like telling the children to never take candy/gifts from a stranger. For those who are like me and considering it, trust your instincts and ask those around you.

    • May 27, 2020 at 9:03 AM by an anonymous user from: Gilbert, Arizona, United States

In 2004 A Charles Soludo from Lagos, Nigeria screwed me out of all my money right after my baby boy was born, The 3rd child born in just under 4-years! So, Thanks to the NIGERIAN 419 SCAM that CHARLES SOLUDO USED on me, I learned a very expensive lesson! So, When this MIKE WEIRSKY FAKE attempted the same exact c**p, I actually used his own B.S.against him and his so-called buddy Mark who uses a cloned phone number 415-649-8278 which when I did an online check comes back to s Tyanna Trim out of San Francisco, California! So, When I told them that I was on to their c**p, they quit texting & Using Instagram under the screen name of suga.r_daddy_clay098 -> PLEASE AVOID THESE GUYS!

    He is now posting on sites like fashion nova who is offering assistance for covid 19 relief and saying he just won the lottery and wants to also help the community out. It’s so evil! They are running a great scam because you go to them for help then they show you the money was transferred into the account it looks so real and all they ask is that you buy a gift card as part of the giving back. I did not fall for it but he almost got me very believable.

    Someone on twitter is also doing this. They follow you first, then when you follow back, they direct message you. It looks legit because they have the youtube video of Mike Weirsky like it's coming from him. They also sent a picture of someone who claims to have gotten their money.

    The name being used is Jarratt Hughes with the twitter handle @mikejweirsky_pg. Going to report them if they ask for money.

    These guys are still at it on Twitter. Yesterday afternoon, I received a DM from Mr. Mike Weirsky claiming that I had been selected as a recipient of a donation from his charity.

    We went back and forth for about an hour DMing each other when he asked for my address, phone number and name. I received a text from someone claiming to from the charity from this number 252-285-6732 stating that I would receive an email telling me what to expect.

    I received an email supposedly from FedEx telling me that I was going to be receiving a check for $500,000 and that I had to send them $250 to cover the expediting of the check.

    I sent a DM to Mr. Weirsky telling him how angry I was that he would try to pull a scam on me and that I was going to report him to the authorities. I reported him to Twitter and I forwarded the email to FedEx's abuse email. I did a reverse look up on the number and it was a cell phone out of Greeneville, NC.

    I have also tweeted about his scam being run on Twitter. I just wish there was some way to find these people and for those of us who were affected by their scam to sue them for everything they have.

      I have a question how did you know who the real Mike was? I have been dealing with this all day bc someone claiming to be him went after my best friend who has a learning disability and I found 5 different accounts on Instagram with his name. Is he aware this is going on? He contacted my friend through plenty of fish which I had already warned her about that site anyways. It's been a mess but I called out at least 2 of the 5 Instagram people and threatened to report them. It's a shame.

    This guy contacted me on Twitter, from @Mikeweirsky8, and after a couple of days of him saying “ HI “ and “ How are you” via DM, I finally asked what he wanted. He told me same thing as others on here, but I had someone else try this a few months earlier, so after a couple of questions to where I could sense he was getting mad, I told him I would pass, and just didn’t believe it was real.

    The next day, today Oct. 23 2019, I looked it up and found this article.

    So I immediately posted it on Twitter along with the username, hoping I save at least one person from falling for it.

    Well the guy saw it, and now before he blocked me, wrote some threatening messages to me. Basically saying he would kill me. Now I’m curious if he threatened others. Obviously this person is just an online bully & scammer.

    I don’t know how many people have fallen for this scam, but I hate those who prey on innocent people and hope this guy is put out of business for good.

    Thank You to everyone else who has taken time to report this. I have been contacted by a few different scammers on twitter over last few months but never thought how many people experience them too. So now I will report any scam whenever attempted on me or anyone I know in the future. Luckily my friend works for FTC, so I urge everyone to report any scam to them so at least they have record of its and investigate them.

    Wish everyone reading this the Best

    I had the same thing happen just now on Twitter. So called "Mr Mike" contacted me and said I was a lucky recipient all I had to do was buy an Amazon gift card and give home the numbee and he would FedEx 30,000 to me.

    The so-called Fedex driver just texted me 1 minute ago from this number: 1 (562) 267-9506. This is really disturbing!

    I was scared mike told me his delivery man would contact me to tell me what to do. Well I didn’t hear from him and I texted mike and told him so he gave me an email address and told me to contact him Drdaveeilot233@gmail.com. Well, I did and I was told told I had to send $510 for fees, well I didn’t think this was real and I asked if he won all this money why do I have to send you money; of course fees etc.

    so I said I only had $50, so he said send him the 50 on an eBay card then send $150 the next day. So then he only wanted $200. To make a long story short I just keep asking why I had to send money.

    Well as of today it’s been three days since he has asked for anything. This was all done on instagram. Good luck

    I was the same, only on Instagram. Was asked for my name, which is in my profile anyway, but also address and telephone number. The person impersonating Mr. Weirsky told me that "he" liked my profile and was going to send me $30,000 by FedEx.

    When I found this page, I immediately blocked whoever it was so they couldn't see my profile anymore. So far, I haven't been contacted any further, or asked for any additional information. Thanks so much for spreading the word about this!

      WOW, gave my cashapp name but removed my card. Hope they don't try to steal my 3.00 in my account

    Just happened to me on Twitter seems like a stupid way to get money.

  • August 23, 2019 at 1:44 PM by an anonymous user from: San Antonio, Texas, United States

    Thanks. This just happened to me too.

    So far they're just asking for my full name, home address, email and phone number.

    I didn't divulge anything. I thought 'at least they didn't come right out and ask for money or gift cards first'. But still. Anything that is too good to be true, y'know? First time that's happened to me. Weird.

  • August 20, 2019 at 11:09 AM by an anonymous user from: Newport, North Carolina, United States

    Happened on Twitter, 73,000 dollars for 250.00 cash. Losers who scam good people.

  • August 19, 2019 at 10:41 PM by an anonymous user from: Tellico Plains, Tennessee, United States

    Yes, I got a message from this person telling me the story and I messaged him back and said listen man, go feed the hungry children in Nigeria .. he hasn’t ever replied back 😂

    I'm writing a comment here in hopes that Google searches will direct to this page if anyone searches for Michael J. Weirsky scams on twitter or an equivilant. If a person from an account claiming to be Michael J. Weirsky messages you about winning money or if the guy claims you've randomly won a prize, don't buy it. The real guy isn't giving out free cash.

    I played along out of curiosity and in hopes of making the scammer realize what horrible thing they are doing to others by sharing a sad story. After following basic instructions that didn't endanger me or cost me any money, another guy pretended to be a FedEx employee and asked me for 2 Amazon gift cards in order to "activate" the winnings. How oblivious do people think others are online nowadays? Anyways, I shot that down quickly then I politely asked the impersonator on twitter for a video of himself telling me hello by my name so I'd be comfortable working with them, but lo and behold he blocked me once he knew I'm not an easy mark as he first thought.

    Anyways, just to be clear: Michael J. Weirsky ISN'T giving people money on Twitter or other social media. Obviously, FedEx employees don't ask for gift cards to cover any fees. Plus if someone's offering you $50K or so, they'd be willing to pay any fees themselves don't you think? So to wrap things up, Michael J Weirsky isn't messaging you my friend. I'm sorry a scammer tricked you for even .01 seconds into believing something great has happened.

      It happen to me as well on Twitter. He blocked me as well when I told him that it was wrong to scam people for money.

  • August 2, 2019 at 10:28 AM by an anonymous user from: Jeffersonville, Indiana, United States

    I called this guy that is sending me the information at 1-330-642-6777; sounded like he is from Nigeria. I told him I reported him to the FBI and he tried to say he was only working for this Michael J. Weirsky. I also reported it to Instagram.

    This dude is all over instagram too. Was sceptical too. Sorta played along when he offered 30,000 and said how generous that was and what I would put the money towards.

    He asked for name address and contact details. Made no interest in what use I would put the money to even though I offered to let him know. Then mentioned about the amazon gift card. I played along some more and asked him to send a vid of himself now. He sent vids of other 'winners' thanking him for the prize instead (I assume these might be workers?) when I asked again for a vid of himself he said he didn't like people who were untrusting.

    I said if he knew anything about the internet and the scamming world I was well within reason to be sceptical! And if he had time to send vids and messages of other people he had time to video himself for 10 seconds. No reply!

    Hi, I almost fell for it too,these scammers are using his twitter profile where it says that he is giving $20,000.00 to his first 1000 followers, then you get a DM from him saying you were randomly selected and are you ready to receive your money. I answered yeah.

    Then he asks you name, address, and e-mail, then another DM that says Fed Ex will contact you by email to set up delivery.

    I don't have a cell phone so can't receive text messages. Then I got this photo shot supposedly from Fed-Ex telling me to select one of the three options. Then was supposed to go and purchase Amazon gift cards and send them a pic of the card# on back of card and the receipt, then they would send me tracking # and when I could expect delivery.

    Please Be Careful

    The scammers are using a fake Michael J Weirsky Twitter account in an attempt to trick potential victims.

  • June 16, 2019 at 11:36 AM by an anonymous user from: Dallas, Texas, United States

    If you know about these scammers, then why is it they are still doing it?

    • June 16, 2019 at 1:33 PM by info

      They are located in foreign countries and hard to track because of technology.

  • June 15, 2019 at 7:37 PM by an anonymous user from: Edgware, England, United Kingdom

    Hi, I just received the Mike Wiersky donation offer via Twitter saying he would give money to his first 10 followers. He then D.M me asking for my email and home address, following this I received 12 emails from fed ex and finally one asking for the $300 delivery fee.

    I D.M'd Mike Wiersky telling him I don't have $300, and no surprise he didn't reply.

    I nearly fell for this scam, be careful out there.
