|I have been scammed out of $1000 from a internet ad on craigslist stating that you can make 10x returns in 21 days from your investment. For example they claim that if you invest $1000 which is their minimum required investment level, that you will make $10,000 in 21 days. I knew this offer was too good to be true, but however I decided to test it out to see if it was really legitimate. At first I asked to speak to someone personally on the phone, which makes common sense if your going to do a business transaction with someone. |
They said that they would only contact my by phone when I make my first initial investment with them. After I decided to give it a shot to see if this worked, I was told to send a individual named "Obed Vazquez" in Bronx, NY my $1000 investment by western union. After I did that, a day later Mike Allen, the so called business owner of the website then said that I needed to pay a $197 insurance premium to protect my investment from risk or lost, so I money grammed the $197 fee to obed vazquez once again. Then 2 days later, a attorney by the name of "James Robinson" emailed me to claim that he works for Mike Allen of the website www.wealthcreationinvestment.webs.com.
He instructed me to pay a $498 fee to wire transfer my funds into my bank account. At this point, I started to get suspicious, and asked to speak to him over the phone as to why he was a middleman for mike allen and why I once again I had to pay another fee just to receive my investment returns. He told me that he would speak to me once I western union send him the $498 and that he would wire transfer my investment returns of $10,000 immediately. I sent him the $498 fee and since then have not heard anything, and thats when I knew that I have been scammed. Mike Allen the person mostly in charge of these ads mostly posts on craigslist and other internet ad sites, and get this, he even has the nerve to have a full blown facebook profile to entice others and scam them out of their hard earned money to try to get people to invest in his "wealth creation investment group scam".
Since then I have called the police and attorney's general's office to investigate these 3 shady individuals, and have contacted craigslist and facebook to have their profiles shut down immediately because they are scamming people. Please do not fall for this sacm like I did, its just not worth it because you will only lose your hard earned money and get stressed out. If you call western union and money gram customer service, they will tell you that there are many consumer complaints against obed vazquez, and his associates mike allen and james robinson after I learned of the investigation on them.
