Beware of Hector Harmandez!

AUTHOR: frankiet2000 - (USA)

 Hello all, I too received this exact same email, a day or two ago. Knowing full well that it was a scam, I decided to play along. I acted like I was elderly and afraid, and said I would do anything to keep this out of court. After several emails back and forth, I finally got a name. I asked many questions about the fake lawsuit, where they were located, the phone number and address, etc. Whomever was mailing got aggravated, and quick! They wanted $250 down, that SAME DAY. (Even though the extortion email said I had 24 hours!) I said I didn't have much money, but that I had wealthy children that I could borrow from. The crooks got REAL aggressive at that point! I asked many more questions, and all I got was the person I was to send it to. Hector Harmandez, and the city was Indianapolis, IN. When they realized what I was doing, the emails stopped. I sent one more, the next day, basically telling them that I knew what they were doing, that I was reporting them, and that they were pieces of crap! Folks, it's real simple. NO ONE can sue you through an email! They get your info some kind of way (your accounts became hacked, you apply online for loans, any kind of way, really). They usually have SOME kind of info: name, social, date of birth, place of employment. Sometimes ALL of the above! But if you are ever being sued, you HAVE to be served with papers!! They cannot, and will not, do it through a phone call or email! DO NOT fall for this fake email from Shaun Smith, attorney! It's Hector Harmandez trying to steal your hard- earned money!! Have a great day. Good luck, be safe, and God bless.
