On Friday 3-1-13 I received a call from Glynn Morgan,( probally ficticious.) He said he worked for Alpha-Omega title co. in Tampa Fl.and he was doing the title transfer for a co. that had sold my timeshare for x amt. of money.I checked out Alpha Omega, and it is a true, and old co.
After speaking with him for about 1.3 hrs. as I had been scammed before and was leary. I had agreed I would pay the transfer fee of $127.50 and I was to call him the next am and he would give me info on how to pay this.
Sat. am I called him and he told me not to give anyone credit card info. or any check, debit card, over the phone. That this was how scammers got my info. Ha! Ha! But to pay it with a Green Dot Money Pak card.
I did this and called him back, he said that my money would come through UPS to my address,and I should get it on Friday or even before. He gave me my ID # and tracking #.all lined up, he really was slick.
When on Thursday I tried to track it everything was ok except for the tracking #. All UPS numbers begin with1Z and mine did,I spent hours trying to find it. Nothing! I called him 3 times to get correct tracking#, he has not returned my calls.
Today I tried once again to no avail. I called Alpha Omega, and after telling my story the person said "Mam you have been scammed! "He doesn't work here, never has, but many other people have called telling the same story over the last few months. A.O. called police but they said that they could not do anything but that the people who Glynn had scammed were to call their local police and report him. I am going to call and report him. But before doing this I wanted to alert others not to scammed like I was.
This may sound silly but the main reson that I didn't think that he was lying was he only asked for $127.50. for spending several hrs. talking me into this. Of course my understanding is he ripped off others for a lot more. If this has happened to you, ( probally used another name) please report to police and to RIPP Off.
