I almost got scammed by this man. He called me and told me that he was with American Family Publishers, and that he needed me to sit down because he had some "big news" for me. He said I was picked to win $500,000.

He had me on the phone 2 different times, each time about 45min to an hour. He was VERY believable, and gave me a ton of info that he insisted I take notes on. He talked about Tax Escrow accounts, Privacy Laws (everything had to be kept quite until they called me on Wednesday to get directions to my house from the airport to be here Thursday), he just rambled on and on.

He had me believing him so much, that I went to the bank, and actually took a cash advance on a credit card to Western Union the money to Seattle Washington to some Christine Campbell who he said was the Asst. United States Attorney.

Thanks to my husband, my mom, and my sister, they researched this, and found other people who had or almost got ripped off.

Please be so VERY AWARE of this man. I am honestly telling you he is VERY believable. I hope this helps someone!!!

Fayetteville, North Carolina
