Total money lost $2,000
Type of a scam Other
Internet repair – they had worked on my computer before. I was having trouble with my email, but they called and said they couldn’t fix it, and was going to return my money ($249.00 that I had paid for the service) So I gave them my bank acct no to return my money. They said they had put $2000.00 dollars to much money in my account and they were partners with Walmart so I should go to Walmart and get 4-$500 gift cards and them them the numbers. I did that and that was how they got my money. Jonathan Lee was the person with whom I was talking.
I am a senior citizen and in retrospect don’t know how I saw any logic in this at all. I was frustrated with the computer not working and was easily taken.
