Total money lost $1,700

Type of a scam Phishing

Two males, identifying themselves as "FBI Agent *** *** *** ***  contacted a restaurant in Jefferson City, MO and scammed the night manager. The subjects claimed that the business’ general manager was being investigated for counterfeiting and the scammer told the night manager to count all of the bills in the till and the safe while remaining on the phone.

The employee was ordered to stay on the phone and take all of the cash to a local Walmart. There, they were ordered to put $425 on four American Express gift cards (totaling $1,700.00). Once complete, the employee gave the scammer all of the gift card numbers and their security numbers from the back. The scammer ordered the employee to destroy the four cards and receipt in a toilet in Walmart.

Each time the employee attempted to notify any other employees or managers, the scammer threatened to have her indicted in federal court for aiding and abetting a known counterfeiter. The scammer concluded the conversation by telling the employee that the FBI would be delivering marked bills to the restaurant in the morning in order to track their boss.

This incident was reported to the local police.

Got an email from the ‘FBI’ stating that i had gotten an Inheritance worth ten million some odd dollars, and that i needed all the paperwork required in order to collect it, and that they would contact me shortly, but if I did not have the paperwork, I was to let them know immediately, by email, I think, knowing this is a scam, I breezed through it, so I really don’t remember much else, but the email address was [email protected]

I received an email claiming to be from the Federal Bureau of Investigation stating that the current president of Nigeria, his Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, has decided to clear all his debts owed to me and other organizations. Then the person who wrote the email asks for a one time delivery fee of $425 US dollars. It is a rather long email with much more to say. It then states to contact the debt reconciliation officer in West Africa, Charlie Alfie, via email address at [email protected]. There is also an attached PDF that I did not open.

The initial phone call showed up on my cell phone as a local Dayton number which I answered and the person on the line identified them as an "agent"- they did give the name however the first call was a bad connection and I could barely understand them. They called back and the line was a little clearer, but I still could not understand the person because of their foreign accent. The "agent" proceeded to say there were complaints filed against my name and stated something about education taxes that were not filed- they were trying to obtain information regarding the case. Again, the caller’s accent made communication very difficult to understand but they confirmed the school I attended and the major I studied. I did not provide any personal information because I felt I did not understand the reason for the call nor what the caller was directly asking me. Because I was at work during this incident I politely asked the caller for contact information so I could discuss this further while I am not at work. The caller became aggressive and sped up their voice making the communication even harder. Finally I asked to speak to a supervisor, and as I was being "transferred" the call was dropped. I immediately searched Google to find there is no Dayton field office for the FBI (which I already suspected). The caller ID on my cell phone identified the number as "U S GOVT FBI" and at one point during their multiple redials it came up as "EMERGENCY NUMBER".
