Finally I realized this is bogus and wrote to the scammer to identify the whole picture.

Steven, there are several things that bring question to my mind when considering to provide you with the requested balance for the “ Taxes” some $1380 and the payment does not go to a taxing agency but rather an individual.  that is questionable for validation of the payment.

You have never provided me any confirmation that I am the raffle winner,  only verbal acknowledgment.  A document  will be required when taxes are to be paid - it is considered ordinary income and taxable as such. this technique is common among scams - big prize winnings but it will take a number of payments to process it.

The debit card that was sent off has never been returned from “JAMAICA”  AND it is obvious that they attempted to manipulate and use the card that you indicated would not happen.  This leads me to question the type of people you do business with in one of the scam and fraud capitals involved in dishonest activities. I question why you associate with the. 

In addition, I know you have tried to reach me with “ unavailable numbers”, number that register from  Jamaica.  Your business associates, some  are located in this scam capital and that brings more skepticism  into my mind. 

I requested you provide me with a Better Business Bureau registration number for your company. That was replied to with a phone number and a request from you not to contact them. More skepticism into play. 

I have been advised by the FBI, FTC, Fraud and scam division of the IRS among others that payment to get a loan - “pay money to get money is a scam” and have been advised against communicating with those asking for money up front. 

The fees that I have paid , a rather large sum, have been outlandish and have amounted to over $12,000 which has totally drained me of any assets or funds - funds and assets I no longer have. Yet I am required to keep paying,  it has never been the last payment and as long as I keep feeding the project, it will never be the last payment that will result in a deposit into my account.

Now, at this point,  I think the best thing to do is to ask for my money back and cancel what appears to be a bogus endeavor.  I will be glad to discuss this with you and provide you a chance to clear these questionable things up with proper validation of the mentioned items.
