To whom it may concern, I got ripped off, I Nedra Kay Newton placed an ad on hobbsamerica.com on the classified section of Autos and it was under firstname.lastname@example.org now under my email at home Tnnewton43@wmconnect.com. It was for a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan, I got a response from this email@example.com that he wanted to purchase it. I told him I wanted 17,000 for it, he said a client owed him money here in the states, and he would send me a check from them for 20,000 to cover it plus the shipping charge to ship it to Nigeria. I recieved the check it was from BTA oil Producers out of Midland, TX 104 South Pecos 79701 made out to me Nedra Kay Newton it was from BTA JV Disbursing Account A Barney Beal signed it., I called BTA after I had already went to Hobbs, NM and went to the credit union where I have my van financed through them, they cashed the check I got my title and then got instructions to send the rest of 3000 to Bode Victor at #17 Glover Street, IKOYI,LAGOS 23401, Nigeria.
so Saturday morning I went to Lowes Pay N Save and sent a western union for the amount of 2480.00 and the cost was 148.80+tax of 7.81 = 2636.61 that was sent to this Bode Victor had to describe him as a man and had to have a test question to pick it up. What are you buying? answer 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan to get the money. Here is the western union information 401 Money Transfer Send, 11/27/04 Envio de Dinero, 808A MST MTCN: 319-033-7224 then I got another email or several about the arrangements for shipping a Bode Victor which is supposedly been working for this Dynamite Cargo International he has been Larry Thompsons freight agent for the past 6 years and supposed to still be at the growing level Larry said this was a legitimate deal but I was supposed to send another 1000 to Bode Victor cause the shipping charge was more than they thought The other men they mentioned that was coming to pick up my van when I sent the 1000.00 to them western union same way was, Mr.Alex Adebayo, Mr.Michael Anderson.
The credit union - Lea Community Federal Credit Union said I would have to pay back the extra money 4,000+ I had the money that I recieved but not the money that I sent to Nigeria that I have to pay back, they cashed the check without even checking it out first, said since it was from a local oil producing company they didnt think anything about it. Got the 20,000 check Friday the 11/26/04 in the mail in a brown looked like a thing that you wrap gifts to go over seas,but it was an envelope. Called the FBI in Roswell, NM but havent heard anything back and a Corey Richards from the one in Midland Tx told me to get ahold of IFCC and file a complaint, is all he could tell me. I want something done to stop this. We are barely making a living it takes all we have to pay bills, and rent we didnt know this wasnt legitimate we were just so excited that we sold our van that way we could buy Christmas, now it doesnt appear to be that way since we have to pay back for their mistake. Credit Unions # is 505-397-1596. Please help us cant find anyone that will.
