Linsey Walker I received a call that I had won the australian lottery This person stated because of this being out of the US Money had to be deposited for insurance to prevent fraud I sent 1900.00 dollars to an address in kirkland with the assurance the money gram could not be cashed but would be held until I received a check of winnings by courier and my money would be refunded Kirkland Canada Quebec
*Consumer Suggestion: You came to the right place. Now, let's look at your options and see what you should do about this.
I refused to send it and refered him to lindsey wright. She called back again and stated he was wrong and that I would need to send 1000.00 as she had got the company to cover the rest and again assured me that there would be no risk as in sending it in the name of my relative it could not be cashed without picture id. again i drove 120 miles and purchashed a money gram for 1000.00 dollars and sent it to kirkland canada. this was on july 19. on the 20th i received a call from lindsey and she said the driver was in customs in washington and that they would fly to the nearest airport and send it with another courier as they did not realise the distance.
On the 21st i heard from the so called driver and he stated he was in new york and that lindsey was wrong and that on this large amount of money i would have to send another 3000.00 dollars. i refused to send anymore money and asked that my money be refunded. he yelled at me and i tried to call so called lindsey i got an answering machine and the other number she gave me had been disconected. I reported it to money gram fraud, to my bank and local police. i really feel i have been riped off and rather stupid. if i can give you any other information please contact me. Thank you.
