Olivia, Expert

Okay so I want you to know that you're VERY likely being scammed here.

Very shortly  you're going to be asked to send money OR to confirm your identity by sending a copy of your driver's license or passport... they do this so they can get your identification... so they can start opening accounts in your name and generally wreck havoc on your life.

Customer
I have suspected this right along and will most likelly becontacted shortly. I will make it very clear that NO money will be sent and NO PERSON INF O given . That will most likely stop contact.. What also concerns me is that he is using Dept of Conumer Affairs as his intro. are you going to follow that up?

Olivia, Expert

Yes, so definitely do be careful. MOST LIKELY they won't simply give up. I think it's pretty reasonable to expect that they will continue to try to circle around to you in an attempt to convince you that this is legitimate... it's not.

Customer
thank you
