This Hellen Alben was buying a table base from me off Craigslist and I was supposed to pay the shipping company out of funds that were to be transferred into my Paypal account since she was out of town and wanted the transaction to be safe. I was to send the money to a Robert Montgomery Address:
Name:Roderick Montgomery
Address:453 broad Street,
Then arrange for the pick up on the table base that would fit in my schedule.
I unfortunately sent off the money. Now I am trying to report it and hopefully get it recovered.

This is what "she" sent me out of just two of her emails. The emails that I received from Paypal looked official and unfortunately I didn't check my paypal account for verification. I was fooled.

Hi, i was about sending the funds when i got an email from the shipping company in charge of the pick up. They said i needed to pay a pick up fee in other to schedule and book a pick up arrangement with them.The only form of payments they claim to accept is Western Union and which i have included in your payment So i want you to help pay them the pick up fund. So i will be making an additional of $300 USD to the initial payments. $250 USD will be sent to the shipping company for the pick up charges and the $50 USD is for any transfer charges in the process of sending the money. Western Union transfer can be made at any mart near you.I will be making the payments shortly and will email you as soon as it is done.Sorry for any inconvenience.Thanks for understanding.
I have sent out the payment now and i am sure you must have received the payment notification from PayPal as regards the payment. The pick up company wanted $250 for the pick up and delivery, so i have included it in the payment i made. I have also informed the pick up company, I'm sure they will contact you regard the details you will use to send the money. Please make sure you send the money to them on time and arrange pick up time and date.
Thanks and hope to hear from you ASAP

Update: 11/22/2012

Please contact me for follow up. This site would not take the evidence of the Western Union receipt. Not sure how to get it to you. I will be in contact with the FBI

  • This person is currently trying to scam me as we speak. He sent me 1,750 in a counterfeit check. He wanted me to cash it wired his seamstress the remaining money after I deducted my share. Luckily when I tried cashing it yesterday I explain my situation to my bank and they told me I was most likely being scammed. We contacted the bank where the check came from. And we are sending the counterfeit check to the bank with his phone number and wiring information. So hopefully we can get him caught. Right now I'm still roll playing with him he thinks I cashed the check already I'm gonna send him the money. But I'm just trying to buy some time so they can catch him before he changes all his information
