Ive been scamed twice.I paid £16.50p for a folding mobility scooter,also about a month ago i paid for a remote Controled back rest.Have’nt received eather of them.
Received text today from Walmart Pandemic Relief Plan now giving $1752 direct deposit”Beware” asking for 1.drivers license number 2. Full Social Security Number along with every personal identity information!
Please if you are a Senior Citizen Please Do Not fall for this evil practice being played against humanity?
PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. First, a legitimate web address ALWAYS starts with “https” – not even “http” is correct (missing S).
I also block the phone number. On iPhone, go to top of screen, touch tiny arrow on right side of the phone number. That will bring up a profile page. Go down to “info” and touch. Opens another profile page. Go to very bottom of that page and touch “block caller”. Then delete the scam message. Yes, everyone be careful out there. These scammers are everywhere. ☮️
I am receiving a email plus taxes regarding the pandemic relief fund like a grant thing and they’re asking for me to go on to ID me and give them the code that that site says not to give with anybody but they’re not giving me a specific amount that I’m eligible for they’re just saying that I’m eligible for the grant so I’m confused on whether they are a scam or not cuz it’s not just a text it’s an email as well?
I received an email and the text regarding the pandemic relief fund they are not getting a specific amount that I’m eligible for or asking for any money to be sent to him but they’re asking me to go to the ID need website and give them a code that that site says not to share with anybody so I’m concerned that it’s a scam too ?
I received a text today that I qualify for $1,400 direct deposit from Walmart Pandemic Relief Fund asking for my IDENTITY as it appears on my driver license. I deleted the message.
To the scammer: You are going to reap what you sow!!!
I just got this text messages this morning and it says your $1,870 is now available from Walmart COVID-19 Relief Program.
I fell for this scam unfortunately because the text looked like an official they asked for so much personal information I became suspicious. I knew not to give them my banking information I did make the mistake of giving my SS number and drivers license number though. I should have verified the site first
