This is where most of my money was send.

Over the past 3 weeks, these people have convinced me to send them over $12,000. The called and told me I won a brand new Mercedes Benz, asked me when I wanted to test drive it, and actually had it delivered.
I drove the car and loved it. They told me I needed to pay $5,000 for the transfer fees, license and insurance. I told them I didn't have the money so they told me to take a cash advance from a credit card and that they would pay me back so I took out $1800 and sent it to them. They deposited $1800 back into my account. Then I took out the rest of the money and they returned it to my account.
The next day, they called me and said there was a mistake and that I had actually won the 2nd place prize of a sweepstakes run by "The US Shopper Fair & Sweepstakes Company". They said this company was a part of The Donald Trump Company and the way their sweepstakes worked was by us using credit cards at several stores in their organization. These stores donated percentages of the purchases to a contest drawing every month and the winners are chosen at random.
I was now the $850,000 winner which also included the car.
I was then asked to pay for the bank charges for transfering all this money, along with an armor car delivery and escort to my bank for security and safety. This was going to cost me $2,000 for the delivery and $1,000 for the car delivery, which was to be paid back to me but they wanted to expedite the process due to 3 day delays of the money being refunded to me. I fell for it and sent them $3,000. They also needed the costs for the wire transfer of all my money which came to an additional $997. I kept doing cash advances and getting confirmation numbers for deposits being made to my accounts so when they asked for a larger sum of money, I was comfortable with it.
The next day, I get a call from an armored car company in Arizona, telling me that a valuable delivery is coming at 9am the next morning and that I needed to be there.
When the scammers called me again, they asked if the appointment with the armored car was confirmed and I said yes. I told them I didn't believe any of this was true so they suggested that I call the armored car company and I did.
After calling the armored car company, I got a call from the scammers telling me that I had broken the 'Privacy Acy' and that the delivery had to be cancelled.
Now they needed more money for everything again. I told them I didn't have any more and they said that a check for $9,000 was coming with the car, along with a 2 year auto insurance plan with Geico and a $75,000 gas card.

I Googled that company and couldn't find anything about them but they know how to sweet talk you very well and convinced me that the company was an agency that was set up 15 years ago to process the awards for other sweepstakes companies. They are well set up with agents, phone systems and very nice ladies who claim to be bonded insurance couriers.
I also looked up all the phone numbers they had and couldn't find a single complaint against them anywhere and had actually developed a sence of trust.
Now comes the scam.
They called me the next day and told me that they had a meeting with Donald Trump personally and that he deceided to give me the grand prize of $2.5 million. I was then told that they were paying $15,500 towards the price of transfering the money $18,000) but I needed to come up with $4500 to complete the transaction. They said their company could only do that high a percentage.
I refused to give them any more money and after several days of bickering, they said that if I could come up with $2500, they would find the rest of the money.
After a few more days of fighting with them, a woman named Suzy McKay called me and introduced herself as the insurance courier for their company and boy did she sound sweet and believable. She said that another insurance courier of the company was willing to post the rest of the money if I could come up with $2500. she sounded very honest and nice too.
I fell for it and an hout after sending my money, they called me and said that the loan didn't clear for the last $500 and could I come up with that.
I exploded and told them that this is a scam, just as I thought and asked for all my money back.
I contacted my credit card companies and found that all the deposits had been cancelled and that I was left with almost $13,000 dept.
Tey tried again for the last $500 and I told them to go screw themselves.
The calim has been filed with my local police department and the FBI.
