Retired and Worker Compensation Board or RWCB Scam

Retired and Worker Compensation Board or RWCB Scam

Scammers are cloning Facebook accounts and using the cloned accounts to contact their potential victims, telling them about a Retired and Worker Compensation Board/RWCB program. The scammers trick potential victims into calling them by claiming they are agents working for the federal government, and they currently have a promotional program or grant to help the retired and disable with cash.

To make their trick more convincing, the scammers will claim they saw your name on a list of people who are qualified to receive money. If potential victims fall for the scam and send money, the scammers will take it and disappear. The victims, on the other hand, will not receive the money they were promised.

So remember, always stop and think carefully when you are asked to send money in order to receive money

    I also received a FB Message from someone I'd had zero contact with for fifty years. "He" wouldn't answer any personal questions, just wanted me to have info on this RWCB thing. So, I looked it up: scam.

    I had a friend request from a person I've know since I was a kid. I friended her and she said how blessed she was because of this program. I replied with a question about who is affiliated with it. A church, etc. Then for some reason I decided to check out who this is because I'd never heard of this program. Sounded sketchy to me and seeing all the warnings here, I'm glad I did.

    I received the exact same information from a so-called friend. Good thing I researched it before going further and saw the exact same wording that was mentioned above. So convincing but I make a point of always doing my own research.

      It is a scam. Once you are asked for money in order to receive money, it is almost always a scam.

    "I received a message on my Facebook messenger asking me whether I had heard of RWCB and saying that my name was on the list to get $100,000. The message was supposedly from a high school classmate. He first asked me to confirm a "friend request." Thinking that it was my classmate, I clicked "yes" to the friend request, and he wrote that he saw my name on the list to receive the $100,000 when USP delivered his check. I wished him good luck and clicked off."

    I fell victim and bit into the fruit perhaps an apple on two occasions. Once it locked down my hard drive that had to be reloaded by my computer brother because I am low tech. I have bi-polar manic depression and scammers try constantly almost on a daily basis to scam me, usually female impersonators often with connection to the country of Nigeria which is politically incorrect for me to say due to the prevailing social mores of political correctness. Nevertheless I p****d off what I think was an Islamic Arab connection of bad guys and they flashed a bright red light on the screen and I became paranoid delusional as a consequence. They got no money from me but the resulting psychosis caused me to do some weird stuff which got me involuntarily committed to a mental health facility for some 14 days. Now I am well on the road to recovery with the appropriate medication to treat my illness in order that I may once again become a functioning and productive member of society.

    I that you from the bottom of my heart for addressing the pressing issues that confront our nation the United States of America in this age of confusion and lack of appropriate stability because I am unlike others not so optimistic about the future of this Great Nation.
