Is the Federal Government Humanity and Poverty Eradication a scam?
I got an email from a James Brooks (firstname.lastname@example.org) about receiving $15,350 after sending $300 to a Fedex Manager Dale Buss via Western Union. I have been researching this but not found anything on it. An acquaintance of mine said she got the check and it cleared her bank.? Need some help.
1 - NO government agency uses a free @gmail account. All federal government emails end in .GOV - never .com, .org, .info, .us or anything else
2 - It's against the law for anyone to ask you to pay upfront before you receive money
3 - There is NO such thing as a Federal Government Humanity and Poverty Eradication. It does not exist
Report this to your local FBI Field Office as it's a federal offense to impersonate a government official
You might be eligible for a reward if they catch these criminals
Your friend's check might look like it clears but it WILL bounce in 4-5 weeks and she's going to owe her bank $15,350 and be arrested for bank fraud once it does
ANYTHING that sounds too good to be true should be avoided like the plague. Stay clear or you will wonder why you lost $300.
