I received a phone call from a guy stating he was a fraud investigator and that the victim had filed charges against me. When I asked what this was about, he stated that I owed money to a financial institution and would be charged for bank fraud and another felony charge.
I did not know what was going on, and it scared the hell out of me. He said that I had one hour to pay the money or he would have the felony warrants issued through the Commonwealth of Virginia and I would be arrested. I could only think about my family and I started freaking out because I didn't know what this was about.
He had my banking institution name, my name, social security number and more information. I truly thought I was about to get arrested for something I had no clue about. We are a military family stationed overseas and i had no way of going to find out what this was. I was just scared.
He stated that I needed to go to moneygram bill pay express and make this payment right now. I called my sister and had her go to the moneygram in Virginia and make a payment. This guy had already called my family and my husbands family to locate me. I don't even know how he got any of their information. He said I had 24 hours to pay the remaining balance to avoid arrest since I didn't have any prior criminal charges against me.
I called the number the next day and asked for the name of the company and their address and the gentleman that I spoke with gave a me a different name this time and told me they were located in Houston, TX. Then he was very rude and disrespectful and hung up the phone while I was trying to ask a question.
My sister tried to get information about their company and the woman that answered her call told her that she had no business grilling her for information and hung up on her.
I am going to try to obtain legal services as I feel they need to give my money back. My sister tried to cancel the money gram shortly after paying it, and the people who processed the transaction stated that the money was already picked up. If anyone has any information or assistance they could offer, please let me know. I would have never considered any of this, but I was so scared and when they were threatening me, I didn't know what else to do.
