    I texted the number and almost went through with the whole scam. I even took photo of my I’d and sent it I was then sent a link to do a selfie video but my phone screen is cracked where the camera is located and it would work I then left it alone I’m just wondering what could happen now that they have my photo I’d?

    I texted a Mr. John Keith and asked if it was scam. He told me if I wanted the money I was to do as instructed. When I told him that I would like to money to help my son but was not comfortable about the offer being a scam. He immediately ended our conversation. I just had a feeling this was a scam.

  • July 29, 2021 at 4:06 PM by an anonymous user from: DeKalb, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

  • July 29, 2021 at 4:04 PM by an anonymous user from: DeKalb, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

    I received the same message but I don't ever fall for things like that. For one you contact me so u should already know my information and I shouldn't have to send it again and 2 nobody is giving out free money like that to ANYONE!

  • July 26, 2021 at 1:54 PM by an anonymous user from: Blount, Maryville, Tennessee, United States

    I got the same text the wolverine fll club mine said $10,000 when they asked for dl I told them I don't have the state ID I said nope don't have one the said passport. I said no they said are you disabled. I said yes, so they told me to download the sprint ip relay app and fill out all the information, so they can verify I am who I say I kept asking what kind of information they said just fill it out I kept questions finally they said you ask too many questions I said no I don't I'm just pr.

    I protecting myself against scam they said we are legit we our YouTube video I said well anyone can send a YouTube video.I said how how much is it going to cost me to get it they said nothing it won't cost you anything I kept asking questions finally I said what's the name of your company they said it was in the video. I said well I can't watch the video right now I said if it's legit then you can give me the name finally after some time they gave me the name I think they went and watched the video again to get the name thank goodness I didn't fall for it. I wanted to believe but knew better something just told me not to just wanted to post because I seen no one had mention getting the sprint ip relay app since.

    I don't have any type of photo ID then they told me to get the sprint ip relay app on Google Play install and fill out all of the information not exactly how that will help them because it's an app from sprint for people with hearing and speech disability to be able to use the phone. I didn't do it of course so not sure how much information it asks for but I'm sure it asks permission to use certain things on your phone but not sure exactly how they use it but I'm sure they use it somehow they kept saying be sure to fill out all of the information but I didn't thank goodness I did keep asking questions they told me they mail it to me cash I said you send $10,000 cash through the mail what if it gets lost or stolen they said that won't happen I said how do you and they said we have a deal worked out with the mail service after I asked a few more questions they texted back and said they had answered more than enough questions they weren't answering any more they have more than proved they are legit and of part of the time the were using bad grammar another give away.

    I told them give me awhile to talk to my husband and I would get back to them and they said okay the money would be safe lol but like I said not sure exactly what kind of information they can get from the sprint ip relay app but I'm sure it's some kind of personal information because they told me to do that when they realized I'm disabled and don't have a photo ID it is a sprint app so not sure how they use to get the information. I kept asking what kind of information I had to put in but they kept saying you will just have to fill it out just wanted to post this for people without photo ID because they told me to get the sprint ip relay app and sign up and would prove to them I am who I say I am hope this helps someone

    • July 29, 2021 at 4:13 PM by an anonymous user from: DeKalb, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

      Evey time someone speaks up it helps me alot. Yes the grammar being so bad and the man that I spoke to was straight good Rat so bad in fact I didnt understand him. Also he was reading a script it was ovious..thank you again!

  • July 22, 2021 at 3:16 PM by an anonymous user from: Horry, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, United States

    My husband just received this text message and fell for their bs because we are all looking for a little glimpse of "hope" in these hard times. Its awful that noone can seem to do anything to these people. What's going on in this world? Why can't people just be themselves and leave others alone. Its hard enough without someone constantly scamming and stealing from you. Smh...

    • August 3, 2021 at 9:12 AM by an anonymous user from: Los Angeles, California, United States

      I fell for it too, what did they do to your husband? Who should I call?

    • July 29, 2021 at 4:23 PM by an anonymous user from: DeKalb, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

      Agreed I just a whole lot and my phone blinked and it's gone. What iwas telling you is to start checking your names one consistent basis. Because around july of last year I fell for a scam and gave myinfo. They used my name to file for unemployment in New York Calif and porter trico. I couldn't get it for myself..so be very careful now. They do have plans..ignorant a*s people they are

Is this club real? And Y dont they announce to the people of US abt this scam? Are they concerned abt the damage it will cause by letting the scam go on and not doing anything abt it?

    I got introduced to this investment platform by a colleague of mine where I used to work. I never imagined that I could be scammed because I felt we carried out our investigations thoroughly. “This must be a golden opportunity to invest my pension…” I said to him.

    I tested the investment with an initial capital of $500 and was able to withdraw my profit and capital, so I referred some of my friends. After some months, I had $143,465.00 and we were asked to step-up our investments, not all of us complied. some weeks later, we were not able to withdraw our profit and capital instead the company demanded for more deposit.

    We filed a complain through the appropriate authority and since it was a cryptocurrency related scam we were referred to a specialist. I will forever be grateful for help rendered by this recommended specialist -scamreclaim gmail com -" who helped us recover all our funds.

From the jump it just says scammer... these people will say anything to get your info.. remember no random text message or phone call will tell you that you won x*x money and want all your info you would have to go in person FOH I HOPE THEY ARE CAUGHT AND ARRESTED AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF IN JAIL LIKE THEY DOING TO INNOCENT PEOPLE!

    If ever these creeps figure out how to write two grammaticaly correct paragraphs and dont resort to stereotypically anglo names that look like they were generated at randomthey might actually fool a few more people.

    • July 15, 2021 at 11:44 AM by an anonymous user from: Cuyahoga, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

      I hate to say this because there are a lot of comments from people who fell for it and sent out their personal info to strangers on the internet. The purposely use bad grammar and make it look like it's obviously a scam that way they people that reply are already the most gullible and not very bright are the only people who actually reply. Saves them time and a lot of false starts from people who after a few minutes decide it's too good to be true and back out. I mean whenever have you randomly been given money? Or randomly been given money where the person/people weren't able to verify where they are from what they are doing and why.

      Another typical rule is that rich people generally don't just give their money to poor people who are struggling, there's nothing in it for them and they are usually greedy if nothing else. They would give to a charity instead because they can do so publicly so they get a lot of pats on the shoulder and people praising them for how kind and generous they are.

      Then they right it off when filing their taxes on the back end. The money goes to the charity or non-profit and first pays all the people working there and then any overhead (rent etc) so by the time the money gets to the suffering there is very little left and a lot of people telling themselves how good they are etc.

      I recieved a text today. It's sad that this has to happen I just hope people dont get hurt

  • July 8, 2021 at 9:38 PM by an anonymous user from: Boise, Idaho, United States

    I received one of these texts as well today, and glad I looked it up. Scammers are getting way too good at this, especially to utilize the actual YouTube video with the real winners, and to promote their integrity via a site such as IdMe! However, one thing that they have ALL failed to improve on is their horrible spelling, grammar, and “sayings.” Instead of saying, Happy Independence Day, they said Happy Independance…..

    I, like many, could totally use any amount of money at this time. However, I am not so desperate that I miss the red flags. This breaks my heart that there are people out there hurting so badly financially, whether due to Covid, Age, Mental Disability, or even just poor financial decisions who are falling victim to this!

    And to those who think that by only providing their ID, and not falling for SSN, that they are safe, they are NOT! As someone previously mentioned, these scammers are able to find out the cellular carrier and go request a new SIM card, thus gaining all personal information such as banking passwords/info, etc!

    Lastly, with the MASS amount of text messages being sent out, how is it possible that these scammers aren’t reaching someone in Law Enforcement or the CIA, thus leading to possibly an easier time catching them? Or, how is it possible that they aren’t being caught regardless? Sure, they are getting smarter, but so are our Intelligence groups! Just seems that these people need to be stopped somehow once and for all….cut them off at the head! Sorry, rant over….

      I hate to say this because there are a lot of comments from people who fell for it and sent out their personal info to strangers on the internet. The purposely use bad grammar and make it look like it's obviously a scam that way they people that reply are already the most gullible and not very bright are the only people who actually reply. Saves them time and a lot of false starts from people who after a few minutes decide it's too good to be true and back out. I mean whenever have you randomly been given money? Or randomly been given money where the person/people weren't able to verify where they are from what they are doing and why. Another typical rule is that rich people generally don't just give their money to poor people who are struggling, there's nothing in it for them and they are usually greedy if nothing else. They would give to a charity instead because they can do so publicly so they get a lot of pats on the shoulder and people praising them for how kind and generous they are. Then they right it off when filing their taxes on the back end. The money goes to the charity or non-profit and first pays all the people working there and then any overhead (rent etc) so by the time the money gets to the suffering there is very little left and a lot of people telling themselves how good they are etc.

      Yep, I got the txt today, the first tip off was the grammar. So I looked it up. Pretty convincing though, I feel bad for the ones that don't realize it's a scam.

      • July 15, 2021 at 11:49 AM by an anonymous user from: Cuyahoga, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

        They use bad grammar on purpose to make it look blatantly like a scam so only the most gullible people respond and they don't waste their time with a bunch of false starts from people who get suspicious and back out.

    • July 9, 2021 at 4:35 PM by an anonymous user from: Stevens, Colville, Washington, United States

      Thank you for your candid reply to this scam, which is among so many. You'd think with times as hard as they are now, the honest good people should not have to deal with such "BS"! I rcv'd this same text today at 12:39 pm, and of course just like most, could so be able to fall prey to such a scam, but get so many any more, esp social security call scams, that I don't believe any of it. To bad, because if one cropped up that was legit, I'd never believe.

      • July 15, 2021 at 11:50 AM by an anonymous user from: Cuyahoga, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

        If one popped up that was legit it would not look like a scam, would be easily verifiable and wouldnt ask for all your sensitive info off rip.

    • July 8, 2021 at 3:17 PM by an anonymous user from: White, Monon, Indiana, United States

      I received this Scam text message on 07/07/21. I made the mistake of responding to it. I sent them a copy of my drivers license front and back, sent them a facial selfie scan of my face from my phone for what they said was for identification verification on Id-Me. they said they then needed my SSN# to complete the last step of verification and then send the $10,000 dollars immediately. The smart light lit in my head and I did not send my SSN# and said I would contact Wolverine FLL directly. Why in the world can some government Law enforcement agency start making the people that do this extinct! I live in Monon, Indiana

      • July 15, 2021 at 11:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Cuyahoga, Cleveland, Ohio, United States

        Because the people that do the scams aren't even in the US, they just spoof numbers. I don't think any law inforcement wants to go to nigeria or wherever and try to hunt these people down. Sometimes I feel bad because the scammers are doing it because there is no way for them to make an honest living where they live that would pull them out of poverty.

      They asked for my ssn card and i.d but I only sent my id card. I'd never share my social with anyone. I couldn't think they could do anything with my i.d... or am I mistaken?

      • July 6, 2021 at 7:01 PM by an anonymous user from: Seattle, Washington, United States

        They could use it to make a fake ID to get access to your things. They find out your wireless phone provider and go into a store with the fake and get a replacement sim card for your number. Then they've got access to all your accounts protected with 2 factor authentation using your phone number, like bank accounts or crypto wallets.

        • July 12, 2021 at 4:03 PM by an anonymous user from: Kings, Brooklyn, New York, United States

          do thay need a ssn to get a replacement sim card?
