Reporting international scams

Share this page

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ve heard us say repeatedly to report scams to the FTC. If you report scams to us, we can bring the kinds of cases that shut down the scammers.

But there’s another place to report international scams, too: econsumer.gov. Maybe you’ve done business with an overseas company that hasn’t lived up to its end of the deal. Perhaps you got “winning” lottery notices from another country, or got asked to send money overseas to secure your international job. If you’ve spotted a scam that crosses international borders, you can file a report at econsumer.gov.

                                                     

The site is run by the International Consumer Protection and Enforcement Network (ICPEN), and is a partnership of 34 consumer protection agencies around the world. Starting today, an updated version of the site is available – it’s mobile-friendly, has a user-friendly complaint form, and you can get consumer information and file complaints in English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Spanish, and Turkish.

Whether you use a smart phone, tablet or other mobile device, your complaints to econsumer.gov help consumer protection agencies around the globe – including the FTC – spot trends, conduct investigations, bring cases and prevent international scams. You also can learn practical steps to help combat fraud and get news from ICPEN members, including case announcements.

I was approached by a onelife marketer, asking me to transfer USD 10.000 for cryptocurrency that supposedly will be one million dollars worth. I am researching for their legitimacy, but can´t find any official information. It would be important for the FTC to issue a declaration, so people don´t fall for a potential scam.

Thanks, for looking out for us. This is a great country cause its all of together, indivisible, period.

Number 9897624227 her name is Diana Nonuu she said is from Ghana and she lives in Decatur IL and had very good reasons to get me to spend over a thousand dollars. She kept asking for money for plane flights and I fell for it over a year. I gave her the good idea to jump seat on a FedEx plane. My dad is a pilot for FedEx​ for over 20years. She refused to take the free flight. She asked me for 150 dollars. Every time she asked for money she asked for more less than a week later. Money gram has the records how much I sent her. My heart got in the way from avoiding her. She needs to be caught before she Robs another man of his money. She states she is an RN nurse. Please help.

Hello FTC: The following message is what I received via text message from an international scammer on April 26, 2017. I received another text message at 2:09am to ask if I was ready to apply for the job online via google hangouts! I am very upset and concerned since my resume was posted on a job site that I thought was legitimate (ZipRecruiter) and I received numerous messages from international scammers that have access to contact me via email, text and phone calls. Please assist me in what to do. They don't have my mailing address, but they know my legal name. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Dear tiredofscammers,

Thank you so much for posting this here. I am in the UK and have just undergone a full interview with Mrs.Samantha Gundogan via Google Hangouts, she asked for my employment history - my resume was already available on Upwork.com. Of course, I got the job. I rang Sinopec UK during my 'Online Interview' and they had never heard of her. I have now reported it to the police and am removing myself from Upwork.

It may be worthwhile for you to contact an ID Fraud organisation to help you feel more at ease. I intend to do the same.

I appreciate you posting such comprehensive information as, thanks to you, a quick search confirmed my suspicions.

Hello i need you help,i purchase something at this website .yeezyenew. com before i purchase i email them first i need to know either this product 100% genuine or not,then they reply me they product is all original,if not original 100% money back guarante and the product direct from factory so they dont pay for vat that why cheap so after i know they product 100% genuine then i purchase 2 item from them.last day the item arrive on me,then i see this item not the original,then i email them i want to refund back my money,but they said i only get 70% for refund.another 30% they charge for stokies.i hope someone can help me with this issue

You can contact the company again and ask for a full refund. Does the company have a written refund policy online? You can ask the company to show you the refund policy. You could complain to a consumer protection agency in the place where the company is located.

How do i report a romance scammer

Becarefull of a guy from plenty of fish he's a scammer. We were talking for about a week then all of a sudden he had buisness to take care of he was going to Africa saying he be there two weeks well anyway he text me he got there An before you know it he's asking me for $500. He's stuck no money his travel checks haven't clear. I to him several times I don't have it then he saids anything I said why don't you call a friend even today he was persistent he even ask me to borrow from my son or Payloan I got him to give me information address An I have his phone number. 1 615 0642. His names marcus an he has blonde hair wears glasses he's in Tennessee. On pof you he only has a head shot he's 60 a widowed. He claims to be a enturbular. Please don't send him anything he claims he cant get a hotel That's it

I also experienced a scam attempt from someone on plenty of fish. He asked for £6000 then £10000 and never spoke to me again once I tried a video call.
He even shows a "prefect" US passport and pictures of his "bank account" at Chase.com.

I feel so bad for the women and men who do get scammed in this kind of situation, for it was great to think someone loved me so much... :-(

And I now understand how a weak /emotional person "deprived" of love could so easily fall for the scam!!!

LADIES, BE CAREFUL!!!

SCAM COMPANY CLAIMING TO OFFER COMPANY FORMATION SERVICES AND FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS IN THE UK. We have recently been victim of this big time scam company: Raag IT Infotech Ltd. A firm request to consumers to avoid them since they have took money from us for services which according to FCA UK they are not even authorised to. They are not even answering to our phone calls nor replying to our emails. company website is: raagit. co. uk Please be informed and aware. Richie.

You can report this to the FTC at FTC.gov/complaint. The information you give goes into a secure database that the FTC and other law enforcement agencies use for investigations. The comments you put here on the blog don't go into the law enforcement database.

Confirmed, Raag infotech (raagit. co. uk) is a scam company who claims to set up offshore companies and open bank accounts. They took money from us and not even answering to our phone calls. Please be careful of this scam.

Can I use your service to file a complaint on behalf of a company that her nama has been used without authorization , while a person presents himself as an employee of the company and is trying to recruit employees for job possisions that do not exist?

Yes, you can file a complaint about a scam that crosses international borders at econsumer.gov.

Knowing that family members have met their husbands on a dating site, I thought I should give it a try.

This guy and I switched to communicating by WhatsApp after about 4 days of chatting on line. To here it all seemed quite normal.

However, after about 15days he started asking me for money promising that within 2 days he would reimburse me twice the amount. He first asked for £6000 then, once I did not refused, he asked if I could "borrow" him £10000.

For a so-called/self-claimed "aviation consultant", his English became worse as the conversation was only about the money. I think the rest of the information had been formated for a long time.

LADIES BE CAREFUL!!!
He claims to have a satellite telephone which does not allow him to do video calls. He also claims that his son died of cancer at the age of 24 after battling the disease for 5 years. He claims to have a daughter. He claims that his mother died while giving birth to him. He claims that his father moved to Jamaica with him as a child and that's why he has a heavy Jamaican accent. Then he moved to the USA (Washington, DC) at the age of 24.

He can send you pictures of:
- himself - his children and himself - his father and himself - his work colleagues and himself - his US passport that looks bona fide - his CHASE bank account statement I'm not sure if I should express his name here, but he probably changes it often??? I have not heard from him for a couple of days. His silence is linked to my "finding" him on Facebook.com. I used his phone number in the search engine on Facebook.com. The profile picture that was found was not the person he had been sending me pictures of. His profile on the dating site has also disappeared. I plan to write to them about the inccident as well.
The most disturbing think is the picture of a "perfect"-looking passport that he sent to me. I can send all of those pictures to the authorities who need them.
LADIES, BE CAREFUL!!!

Now I am concerned he may use my pictures to set up a fake identity to try to scam men!!! :-(

How I can get from Aliexpress my money? They blocked me,I do not know why and now I can't get my money? All chats and sites,e-mails is blocked of me.WHY? It is scamer site,not only sellers,but administattion also. I want find somebody,who can check Aliexpress and ask,where is money,which they are take from buyers?
Advice from the Aliexpress Help Center, as viewed 8 May 2015
Many previous “Verified” gold members have been blacklisted - HOW LONG TIME WILL BE EXIST BOSS OF THIS SITE? They are manipulating with "black"(money taken from sellers) money and are misunerstandable. How can be possible at this time ,to make "business",like that?China is a very legal country with strict rules and punishes Chinese thieves? Yes?

Aliexpress was listed as a scam site over a decade ago. How they still exist is mind boggling. I recommend not getting your hopes up because from everyone I've talked to in the past and in the last twelve hours concerning my own scam, money is almost never retrieved. The Internet is a dangerous place to do business and Aliexpress is one of the biggest offenders of scams I've heard of.
I'm sorry you were taken; seems we all play the fool at some point. :-(

Music Store in Germany is giving me grey hair. I bought and paid for 2 speakers with covers and also paid (a lot of money) for shipping to South Africa.
Items were send with DHL Deutsche Post. Each box got a different tracking nr although it is 1 order. 2 of the boxes (1 speaker and the other box was the covers) traveled up and down in Germany only to be returned to Music Store rather than exported to South Africa. The other box (according to online tracking) arrived in South Africa. Now Music Store give me a credit note for the items returned. I am not interested in the credit but I want the items that I purchased delivered to me. Shipping paid was for all of the items. Now only 1 item was delivered and they expect me to pay all the shipping for this 1 item? Numerous emails were send without reply...although they were quick to give a quotation when that was requested. Phoned them today...cannot properly speak English. Will attend to my complaint mentioned in the email. Totally unprofessional for such a huge shop. What should I do next? Does anybody know who I can contact that will be able to attend to my situation? Thank you.

You may want to contact consumer protection agencies in your country or in the store's home country. If there are charges on your credit card account that you wish to dispute you may want to contact your credit card company to ask about your rights to dispute charges for items you didn't receive.

Items returned to sender was reposted today. Will wait and see how this attempt plays out and update this post accordingly.

I meet the guy he pretend to love me he from USA he ask that when it my birthday I told him then he promised to buy me a phone I believed him coz he even take the photo of a phone and laptop after he send the items via corrio company then send the slip after they ask me R550 for delivery idid that but they are now coming with stories

Dear All, please avoid Calvin Steffen on line romance scammer, short description claimed: 46 years old, divorced, email:calvinsteffen78 , currently in Australia Brisbane.

I have a problem. I dropped my phone off 3 WEEKS ago to get the LCD opaciter replaced and they told me it should take 2-3 days to get the part and 6 hours to fix the phone. So I left the phone with the woman who I guess runs the store on her own and and gave her a number she can contact me at. She said she'd call when it's done. So 4 days pass and I get a little impatient and call the store to get the same woman. I asked if she was still working on my phone and she said sounding irritated that she doesn't even have the part yet as if she didn't tell me before that it would take 2-3 days. So a week goes by and I call the store again on the Tuesday two weeks after I had dropped the phone off and she answered and I asked if the phone was done yet. She said no but the part he needed to fix it with had just come in on Friday but the phone is having a problem: it's not charging. So she has to order a new charging port before she can start working on the phone and the part is free of charge and that it will take another 2-3 days to get the part. That was when I got a little irritated why didn't she call me over the weekend if the phone was having a problem. The store is open Fridays and Saturdays an she had received the part on Friday. The store is also open 11am-7pm so that's almost all day to realize the phone isn't charging. Then Monday next day back at work test the phone again still not charging?? Contact owner ask them if they had an issue with the phone charger! But no I called them Tuesday afternoon to have them ask me if they can order a new part almost immediately like they were waiting on me to call. Now it has been another week and the phone still isn't done. What should I do? The store is a local business I'm assuming that she is the owner of the store. And I asked if I could get a refund the second day time I called and he said I couldn't because she had already ordered the part for me.

Here are some ideas for resolving consumer problems.

My friend has been scammed out of £400 by somebody posing as an RAF officer I'm Afghanistan but had the money wired to Benin. We think it's a Nigerian bloke called Jonah Anthony nyam as that was the supposed agent.

Definitely a scam

Our company received a call from the same number (707-320-1338) and also an email inquiry from vestal harner @gmail. com asking for buying $11,000 worth of product and requesting to use a certain shipping company- sky shipping services. The guy provided credit card information but the billing address is a dry cleaning shop. This shipping company said they only accept wire transfers. When we talked to both the shipping company and the guy over the phone the connection was really bad. Apparently, they are using a different name now.

REPORT ID U GOT CALLED UP FROM ANY OF THESE COMPANY

Hello! I'd like to report a suspicious site and certain Eric Morgan. A person who said he sent a parcel to me all the way from Florida. I knew this person for a two weeks. He provided a tacking number on this site xxxxxxxxxx with the tacking number 03xxxxxxxx and I was so stupid to believe that it was true since it seemed so legit.
Someone texted me from that our parcel just arrived from Florida and we needed to send 17,400 php for the admin fee for us to get the parcel delivered and so we did send the money via BDO acct. c/o Sonia M. Ramos/ACCT No: 0087xxxxxxxx. They said the package will be delivered by tomorrow right away after scanning the parcel.
Then later on, they texted us again telling us that there were undeclared cash inside the package ranging 10,000 -35,000 US dollars and we need to send 35,000 PHP for the legal documents for them to process so they can deliver the parcel right away. We refused to send since that was so impossible. They said it was a serious criminal offense and it's laundering and we need to pay for the 35k php. We called them and asked for the address so we can pay the money personally but the address given was invalid. I kept texting the said April through this number +639452180140 and certain Michael Wilson through this number +639568893623. FYI his accent is not American. I think they have been operating for days. i tried to search the site given and tracked down if this site is a scam. It appeared that it has established for 86 days more or less and based from Romania or America. I tried to call them and ask to get my money back but they refused and said they don't refund money after we sent it and hanged up. I can provide some screenshots if you wish me to send it to you via email. Please help me. Thank you so much. I may be reach me through this email

Hello, anyone out there run into a scam circle out of South Africa that says they are the accountant for your late rich uncle and can't find any other blood relatives? An accountant who says he is Mark Stewart, someone at a fake bank, and an Attorney who says he is James Adams, of Adam and Eve Attorneys of Mindrid South Africa. Complete with a fake attorney website?

asiconminer. com turned out to be another scam as well. They have tech data-sheets and specs everywhere but never send a machine. I tried the cheapest one to test the company as a scam since there was no feedback on them that I could find. They sent and invoice, sent a invoice marked paid, sent a tracking number that expired, and even sent an email saying their logistics center would contact me. Nothing ever came. I though they could be a scam as the specs and prices were borderline to good to be true. I took one for the public so avoid them.

Hey,

I live in Turkey. I recieved an e-mail about new job opportunity. It is about a big amount of money belongs to a dead man. She offers me the share that money 50/50. I thought that was a fake e-mail and I thought that she asked me to send her an advanced fee. But she wanted me the my driving license. I couldnt think that was a dangerous thing. So I send my driving license copy. And she didnt reply me after got my ID. I think she got what she want.

I know that I am a very foolish guy. What should I do now? I am very frustrated. Can thieves steall my money or open bank account or take credit from bank with mu ID from oversea?

Thanks

You can contact your bank and tell them your license was exposed to a thief. Ask how to protect your account. Do you use your license for other reasons, like a work or school ID? You might need to contact other businesses where you use your license for ID.

A thief can use a license number and other stolen information to create a new identity. They use the new identity to buy things, take loans etc. If the thief uses your information to make a new identity you might see signs of identity theft.

Thanks for your reply.

In Turkey driving license is very similar to identity. I ı I I. I looked up on Internet about this issue.Thieves may open a new bank account,buy new cell phone, sign some loan contract etc in Turkey. I think I can handle these contact with police department, my bank etc.

Actually my big worry is the thieves generally steal people ID's from overseas. They are working international. How can I handle that? Should I contact all of the abroad country's police department about my stolen ID. I am very anxious about for example when I go to USA after 5 year, police-man says me that I have a big amount of unpaid bills, credit etc.

I wish there are international agency or special security mechanisms which deal with identity thieves.

Thank you very much for everything.
