FBI Fraud – FBI Scam

It seems that everywhere we look today there are scams taking place. Anywhere that personal information can be sought or where money can be found there are scams taking place. This even reaches out to our law enforcement, and this could not be any more evident than when you see the different FBI scams that are out there. Yes, scammers are even pretending to be the FBI! Imagine having the nerve to scam someone under the guise of being from the FBI. People fall for such scams all the time.

Watch Out for FBI Fraud

There are some very common FBI scams out there and most of them take place through email. One email that has been going around for quite some time is said to be from the FBI Director, Robert Mueller. In the email the direction of the FBI tells you that you have won the lottery and that they need your personal information to verify your identity and get you the money that you have won. Of course, when people fall for this they usually click on a link that has been embedded in the email and takes them to a site that looks official where they literally hand over all of their personal information to an identity thief. Of course, you will not see large funds deposited in your account as promised, in fact you will see large funds taken out of your account and even new credit accounts in your name!

Another scam is much the same and it involves the consumer receiving an email from Robert Mueller or another FBI official. In this email they will tell you that you have received an unclaimed inheritance and they have been trying to track you down to ensure that you get the money that was left to you. They will ask you to please click on a link and fill out a verification form. On this verification form you will fill out all of your personal information, information that will not lead to you receiving an inheritance, but instead having your identity taken.

There are many similar scams to this, all of which come in email format, telling you that the FBI has been trying to contact you. In most cases you will be told that they have money or property that is owed to you and that they just need to verify who you are. What you need to know is that none of this is true. This is a scam and there is no way that the email can be true, there is no way around it. As much as you might like to win the lottery or have an inheritance given to you, the FBI is not going to contact you via email to tell you about this. Never, ever believe that an email you receive is from any law enforcement official, as this is just not how people associated with the law conduct official business.

How do you know this? Because the FBI never sends email to people that they need to be in communication with. In fact, they always call someone or have a face to face meeting with them so that they can verify for themselves that you are the right person. If the FBI does contact you, you should be aware that they will not ask personal information questions, they are the FBI, they would already have this information! Remember that even if you get a call that says it is the FBI that you should never share any of your personal information. If you are not sure whether or not you are being scammed, you should contact the FBI independent of the information you are given in the email to see if there is any reason that they would be contacting you. Don’t be fooled by official looking emails, letter heads, or people who sound like they know what they are talking about. Scammers are good at looking and sounding like they are who they say they are, but that doesn’t mean you should believe them. Do your due diligence and ensure that you are truly talking to the FBI and not a scammer.

    Unknown,

    Your IP has registered more than 300 comments to an official site. This site is an information only website for consumers who have been the victims of FRAUD. If one of these individuals you are complaining about has stolen YOUR identity (YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, NOT A SCREEN NAME) and made illegal purchases using YOUR identity or YOUR money then file a report with your local PD. Otherwise you are violating subsection F of paragrah U by using FCC property (the internet) to harass a federal agency. In short, I have better things to do than read your nonsense. Have a nice day, maybe go plant a garden and stuff.

Some leader guy thinks he’s satan the real devil & there is a 2nd leader of the group. These people are like a deranged /mind control group. They been going around slandering/false gossip, cyber bullying people post too post. Each of them say they must obey there troll leaders on the website & post and they put out stuff too attack people on the site. They tell each other. They all gang up and start on people. These people are clearly deranged and need looked into. Thanks.

    Unknown I don’t know who you are or maybe you are sordidguy again. This guy has been on a rampage again on topix attacking users & trolling them. But making false reports could get be serious. This is an fbi site. No one ever made threats except of you going too jail lastnight. That’s not illegal. Few of my friends was attacked by this guy on topix & harssed by him & his troll group. It seems too me they pick new sites & people too pick at. Threating too contact the authroties is not a crime. If you wanna get payback at dani or anyone on here don’t make up stuff. This is another false report you’ve made.

  8. 408
    Unknown Says:

    Keep going at it on here . And you may add more charges upon yourself. The fbi can trace you . This person is mad & starting drama on your site over him being caught in stuff he was not supposed too be doing again. And he was told if he kept it up him & his trolls on any site. Then you all would be contacted. I’m not gonna fight with him . I’ll make sure no one else does. It seems too me he’s just trying too get payback on people for reporting him. Now by the way. Maybe the fbi can tell you too stop wasting their time & it’s not the law too threten too contact them if you are messing with people.

    unknown Says:

    This person is pretty immature for his age I thought . If he’s mad at us for contacting you all. Him & his trolls shouldn’t have went on another website attacking people under different accounts. He thinks it’s not illegal . He can go online & harassment & bullying can be totally fine. him & his trolls really think it’s not the law. It’s freedom of speech. So they can go & rant online & do whatever they want. This is a person who just stated too us ov er a period were all stupid on topix there’s no fbi even in texas there’s no fbi at all and it’s okay what they are doing . I got a feeling this person is delusional. They’ve also falsley accused 5 + people of things in a period of 3 hours lastnight. Just wanted too let you all know this. And the statements this person made is false. He lives in a fantasy world & goes by different accounts . Anyway i’ll let you do your jobs & even trace him if you need too & goodluck.

    Sweetie, Once again you are geting your info mixed up & confused & twisting things on here & even some is just false. You & those trolls. Dani never said her hubby was a cop on the net. She had a boyfriend who was. And a friend who’s a state cop. Yes he did talk too your troll group. I read it for myself on topix. Second off you are wasting the fbi’s time with your non-sense. I am starting too think this persons crazy or on drugs myself. She was not talking too you. Once again you’ve came up into people’s business on here & started too attack them and troll & get things way out of line. That’s not a youtube video of her brother or ex boyfriend or anybody . Infact they are not online. Ever since people is in the military or has a cop career you gotta make more comments………You don’t even know what her family looks like or her ex or boyfriend or brother . You just made a false statement again and report about a person on here.

    Topix User Says:

    It’s legal to actually catch you guys in trolling and report it to authorities if it gets out of hand & bad on a site. It’s not illegal. So your reports & statements are just foolish & child like as they are on topix. Please stop wasting the fbi’s time with your reports & rambling statements. They have better things to do besides jail people who catch trolls.

A few website users from topix has stated she has been threaing & sending death threats & has for a while . & She has a picture right up on her page. You’ll find her on there on pages with other trolls like topix avenger & jlo. Who come on posts attacking & harssing people. I got a feeling these two are this woman’s friends.

    Vaughn Says:

    Please everyone just calm down! Even if you are trying to help or get help, its just best not to do anything. Leave them alone. Stop talking.

    If you never talked in the first place you wouldn’t have a problem with these little pranks. Keep to yourself and change your nick name often. Never give out any information about yourself to anyone! And if you are going to talk about people never use a real or fake name. Just Anonymous will do. Anonymous with a number if you would like.

    Just calm down and stop talking. Simple right? Your family and friends are what matter not these other people. If you have a problem walk on down to the real police and figure it out. Get offline!

    unknon Says:

    I agree . Some of these people are not even giving out real info or full names of people on here . The fbi can not do much on fake info or not full details. Dani guy or girl. It don’t matter. There are tons of people with that name even in one town you may have 25 people with the same name. Please people stop wasting the fbi’s time on here.

    I would like to thank the FBI, Agent Hoge, and their local agents in the West Virginia area for getting Danelle banned from the Topix posts. Her abuse and threatening of posters did indeed, as you have stated, infringe upon the Constitutional rights of others. I understand that I may be called to testify at trial. Thanks again!

    WOW. Lucy people knew you & jlo were trolls & have a lack of respect. On another post as they posted about him he’s posing on a woman’s name but a guy. And you got a girls account also but a guy. Few people do that. I don’t know why. You’ll end up being caught. Be honest with people guys.

    Lucy Furr is a guy.

    She’s done been reported to texas authroties. As we can see he is clearly unable to understand what your line of work is & even on posts he does. He does not get it. clearly he may have some problems. As I posted he has been reported. An adult who goes far as him to pose as someone different online it makes me wonder about these types of people.

    Bio
    Virginia Olive Hoge is an artist and writer living in Pasadena, California. She lived in Brooklyn, New York for 18 years, moving back to Pasadena six years ago. She became engaged in local politics when she began defending the public schools from the massive media attacks they were being subject to. She eventually opened a blog, the Pasadena New Progressive, which attempted to be a progressive whistle-blower on the local political blog scene, that had long been taken over by the right-wing, albeit under disguise. There was a lot to uncover and years of disinformation to clear up about the public schools. This made her many enemies extremely angry and she has been the target of the local trolls for almost three years, a particularly unscrupulous breed. None of this has stopped her from soldiering on with her commenting in support of the poor, most recently in support of a parcel tax for the public schools. She is in her third incarnation on Topix after being shadow-banned twice, and had 17 attack forums built just for her on Topix, she claims it has all only served to make her stronger.

    Topix troll claims “Topix breaks legs” Yikes

    You all may wanna take a look into her & how she posts information about these trolls . There have been two who had made threats. She even confronted them & agreed they were making threats to users. And one has been harassing users from argington texas.

  22. 422
    babygurl Says:

    Oh boy this troll is going on different accounts? You all please check out virginia olive hodge a user on topix. She’s written in her blog about these trolls how they made threats & even other things.

    Topix User Says:

    I was asked & told to come here. A. this is jlo from from ga. Or lucy furr from texas. They come on topix posts threating to file reports on people & troll them . So just wanna let you all know they are nothing but drama and waste people’s time with their childish ways. This has gotta stop guys. You are not the first people to do it. Then again this has gone way to long. If you are not the same person then stop guys. If so then stop it please. Enough. No more games. We are sick & tired of this stuff that’s going on. I see you on alot of posts. Alot has been re-moved due to harassing other users. We are watching people like you. The fbi has better things to do besides deal with drama in towns and on websites. Do not bother them with your drama please? Okay now.

  24. 424
    Topix User Says:

    I know for a fact jlo. You do tend to lie alot and go around harassing users on topix posts topix had to re-move tons of them . You try to seek attention. You’ve seeked bad attention as your other website troll friends on topix . Now we know you and lucy furr are both men. We found that out. If you are the same person the term would be man then. There is word and proof on topix. You are men. People know you all . Not many are friends though. One girl most of your buddies was harassing is no more then 16 to 17 yrs. of age. If you both like for me to send out proof oneday. Then i’ll be glad to start sending the fbi proof. It seems to me this person is very mentally ill. They have a friend who calls himself satan . Anyone who does so is not evil. Simply may have some problems & not gonna get anything through their head. We’ve been at it with him for months now. Nothing is working. He’s been told threating & filing false reports could get him into trouble. And oh yes sweetie they can track your ip’s anytime they feel the need. So anyway i’m using a friend’s computer tonight to type this up. And hoped that help.

    They both pose as women. But actually are men in real life. Do not be fooled by what they say or do on that website topix. Alot of lies are built up on it & people can’t deal with certain issues . So they post hateful comments to total strangers and take out issues on people. These people could also be bots or just spammers. Or even reg. people who tend to spew out hateful re-marks. Only issue is no one pays much attention to them. The more you do not pay attention . They’ll leave everything alone . These are just not adults. People like them could be a big pathological liar & out to get something. Just keep both eyes open & pay more attention to what they post.

    I’ve even called her police department . They have a net task force in Logan. They only have one guy as of now doing it. Trying to hire another. They are watching her posts when they can. They’ve done had complaints from her neighbors. CPS has complaints and a file stacked high against her. They had a few nasty things to say about her. Frankly that was uncalled for. I guess that town is ignorant . However she is becoming out of hand a nustiance all over WV , Kentucky Virginia Ohio NY and several other states with her net trolling and spam. She’s made threats against the authorties and more then once. I’ve contacted every job including this so called kevin”s . No such person or person works at these places. It makes me believe this is not a friend. A sock puppet of this twisted woman”s. She says she’s not scared to be called in on or reported. I’ll take princesses advice. I think she’s a coward and has nothing better to do. Some people don’t need arrested. I believe she needs put in a mental hospital. Clearly the law does need to warn her about what she posts on the Internet. She calls it freedom of speech. I call people like that insane. Are they a threat to society? Sometimes I believe truly that they can be one. She’s one. I read online that anyone with felonies is not supposed to be on a chat website in WV . You all may wanna search her on posts and look into that. I feel bad for her in a little way. She doesn’t live in the real world we do. Sadly whoever she is . She has a personality disorder and pathological lying. A cop told me a while back she’s nuts . It’s clear there…

    Ginny Hoge is not an agent or has a licensed business etc . Topix Users, Aim , Saloon and Yahoo users. Ginny Hoge is a troll and scammer with bad behavior and a bad attitude. I just called the Pasadena PD and filed a report on her. Heads up, She’s a liar who uses many names and impersonating the law and other people. She is mentally ill. I live in Pasadena and am tired of her and tipped her off. The sheriff’s will visit her likely. Dont thank her or thank agent hoge. She is demented as posters come on these websites. She thinks it’s normal as herself. They told me she is disturbed and they’ll look into it. It may take a while. Any state the law and jails are full. Ginny Hoge is only thanking herself for lies. Do not tip her on her website. She doesn’t have a license for this so called net business to bust trolls.
