Yeah, I wonder if you could get the fraudulent debt removed if you filed a police report? That sucks, for sure.

i was scammed to the tune of 2800 usd about 3 yrs ago. I actually sent this loser that much money. He told me he loved me and all that crap that i ate right up. When i went to send this money western union the lady at walmart tried so hard to talk me out of it. But i said no i have to he needs me. What a load of crap, he kept trying to get me to send more but i had no more to send and he started pressuring me to ask family for money or take out loans , he said if i loved him i would help. Thats when i said if you loved me you would stop pressuring me for money. Then i blocked him and changed my skype name and thankfully he never got access to any of my accounts.
i did a search and he was using a name of a guy who was a retired general in the US army but this guy wouldn't ever let me hear his voice and he was in Syria.
I still hurt from that , mostly that i was taken so easily.
be strong , tams

I've been scammed in the past. I fell for the microsoft partner scam when it first started going around, and then I got scammed in an on;line venture, that one cost me 10K.

Now I ask how likely is this to be real

Does the IRS/Revenue Canada use calls threatening a fraud investigation, when they specify all their communication is in writing?

Does Microsoft care about me as an individual? Not likely.

Why would a stranger offer to pay off my debts?

It's easy to get sucked in, especially when we're already vulnerable.

You do need to get the police involved, IMO. That was a felony on the part of the scammers.

I was scammed too. Police told me itís very common and happens to the best of them. It happens to people when they vulnerable. Scammers pray on people in vulnerable situations. Make sure police is involved. It will be hard to prove anything or find the person but at least there is a record of it. Talk to your cards, you might not be liable for new debt as it wasnít you who used the cards

I see itís old thread, donít know why it popped up as new post

A friend of mine, who is articulate and successful (he's even an officer in the reserves) was scammed out of somehing like $5000. He thought he was paying to buy a used car from someone offering a really good deal online.
