Type of a scam COVID-19

I Was notified by PayPal that I had something posted to my account. I went to my PayPal account and there was an invoice from the world health organization for $35. I contacted PayPal this morning and they told me how to cancel the invoice but it is alarming how this got into my PayPal account in the first place!

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I was contacted by this person via email from Craigslist. I had an ad out about giving piano lessons. He said he would send me a check (and did) of $2,530 and I was to send $2000 of it to a "nanny" for his "daughter." I would periodically get texts from him as my number was on my resume. He said the nanny was needing money and he was "really worried" about it. So I deposited the check, the money was too good to pass up. 10 days later the check was returned to me and I was charged a fee for the bad check, luckily nothing else was owed to the bank. It’s basically your classic moral story of "If something is too good to be true, then it probably is." Lesson learned. DO NOT trust this fake check or someone posing as Brigham James contacting you. Also side note, I later googled this after contacting the bank and found out on how people calling the numbers and getting no answer because they are using a "text me" app or some app service that allows you to just text and no calls. This guy always texted or emailed me, and never called. BEWARE.

this man saying his name is Raymond Moe says he is in the military and is entitled to some money and wants you to send an e-mail to the World Health Organization and they send you an e-mail wanting your license number and then they send an e-mail telling you to send in all your banking info and send them 5.000$ and in return they will send you 90,000 $ just FYI all i sent them was my address nothing else and I am thanking Dr.Phil for informing people of possible scams because these people are good and very relentless and they dont like taking no for an answer because that is when they start saying ugly things to you and making you feel like crap
