I WENT BLANK AND MY HANDS WERE COLD AND SHAKING, I WANTED TO CRY, MY HEARTS POUNDING FAST, i didnt know what to do, i told her ill show her all the fedex envelope where they have put the checks , so i got out of the bank thinking that it was just there in my car but it wasnt so i drove back to my work place and got those envelopes with some emails i printed out and went bank to the bank, just when i was parking i see all the police cars and there i smell that im in big trouble. the police came up to me and i gave him all the envelopes and ask me few questions, it happened so fast they told me to wait for the detectives call but its been 4 days from know and havent heard from him, the police even told me that i might be facing fraud charges. i dont know what to do, to who ever had the same situation as mine please tell me what to do, the bank froze my account and nothing from them yet. i needed someone to talk to regarding this case of mine. please advise me of what will i do and will i be charged of fraud here cause what i know is im a victim too, because of my ignorance and stupidity i fell for this kind of scam, its true you cant have easy money, work hard to have money.. well its too late for me now. have to face it. help me please. needed all your advise and things to do....hope someone would answer me. i cant sleep and eat thinking of this big mess i have. email me anyone... kyoms76@yahoo.com

You need to contact the Security Department or the Branch manager where the incident happened and see if the bank is willing to arrange a repayment plan for you.

If you have been criminally charged with trying to defraud the bank because of one of these scams, and you live in Minnesota, contact me privately and I will send you the contact information for a wonderful lawyer.

If you live in a state other than Minnesota, or if you would like to look into the possibility of a civil or even class action suit against the bank, please contact

Myles, I am sorry to hear that. I hope it will be fine to you since you are a victim of scams.

it is very lucky to me because I can find this website before I go to banks to cash these checks. thank you scamvictimsunited.com. I have a same story as Myles, but I suspect these guys from yim because what they (these guyz from yim) gave me is very vague. I doubted them from the beginning. I feel that I am very lucky and thank you admin for having this website a/v.

Glad to hear that you did not get scammed You can help to spread the word about these scams by telling friends, family and co-workers what COULD have happened to you so that they are warned.
