Hello,This appears to be a common scam that reappears in many places and under many names. You can read about similar scams at the Internet Crime Complaint Center.Eventually the con artist will send you a cashier's check or money order and request that you deposit it the check and send back a portion of the funds. At sometime in the future - after you have sent the money - you will find that the check you deposited was fraudulent and the money will be assessed against you.Here is the site to file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center: http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspxWish I had better news.
I do not beleave this company is a scam but if I am going to send them money i just want to be sure.
how did they find you and why do they want you to send them money
what do mean by urgency: MEDIUM...level of detail:MEDIAM ?
to start the paper work they advised that they could get all the nec. things i need like a pass port,visa,vaccination card,medical report (hiv blood test),police report and air ticket
for the person that is coming to visit me.
Have you met this person who wants to fly to the US?
they found me through my girlfriend that lives there .
i met her through the internet
This is a scam. We see several of these a day. Typically there is no girlfriend that will show up and your money and identity will be stolen
oh what makes you so sure? i read about this all the time also but,I dont know what to do?
It is your money and your identity and your decision. The people who operate the scams are very skilled. The same fact pattern appears time and time again
I have thought of just buying the air line tickets on line and make them refundiable if for some reason she can't come do to not being able to get a visa or the other things she needs.
thay also said they dont any credit card info from me but i could send them $700.00 to start the paper work by sending them a western union?
gosch darn it i dont know what to do.this is crazy.
They always have an answer and an excuse. You have asked a question and I have given you my answer. It is your choice whether or not to accept my answer
one more question by the meaning urgency:mediam is a 5050 chance and is that company on any list that made you tell me that ?
the names of the companies are constantly changing -- what doesn't change is that the person is from Ghana or Nigeria and never met the person being scammed face-to-face
thank you for helping me.take care and god bless.
Good luck to you
ill need it lol
