Scammed by the “FBI” 2 weeks before Christmas

My loving sister Joy was scammed two weeks before Christmas. This tragedy has devastated her tremendously. She is completely embarrassed that she fell for this, but she feared that she was going to go to prison and leave behind her little girl. All she wanted to do was clear up this situation.

Joy received a phone call from some people claiming to be the FBI. They told her she had a federal warrant out for her arrest. They said she was tied into money laundering and other criminal activities. Once she proved she didn’t do it. The FBI then proceeded, to tell her that she was a product of identity fraud. Joy was then immediately instructed to go to her bank and withdraw her money because they believed, the people pretending to be her, were going to steal her money too. The people (“FBI”) then told her she must secure her money with them and once they completed their investigation, a federal agent and US treasury employee would be sent to her home with a refund check. Sadly, that never happened and they got away with $10,000.

On behalf of my sister, her family and I are asking people to please donate. ANYTHING helps. She is a single mother, who not only lost part of her safety net (in case of difficult times), but also money to pay her bills and to take care of herself and her child. And please don’t judge because this could happen to anyone. Please donate, we will deeply appreciate it.
