I‘m gonna start off with introducing myself. I‘m Chris, I‘m currently 18 years of age and I recently just moved to the states. I was in Germany before stationed at a base there for the US military.
During the move I lost my phone and was unable to find my phone. It was no where to be found whatsoever. I had just opened my first banking account with USAA, and was supposed to get my card in the mail at the house I was moving into. I got there and all it was, was a statement. I was confused so I went to call USAA. Thinking I was still in Germany, i forgot about the time difference and how I‘m in the American timezone. Instead i checked my email. Only to find that I had money transfers and deposited checks that were fraudulent on my account. I was confused, because I rarely check the account so it could definitely have not been me. Since I was waiting for my card to get here before I use it. As you can see my photos show that someone deposited almost 5,000 dollars in what I found out to be fraudulent checks. And was able to take away the money I had in my account. I only had a small amount of $50 dollars before. I called USAA and they told me the check got put on hold due to the suspicious activity so thankfully they weren’t able to take more. Still, $200 dollars is alot to me. I have no job due to being in a country where I can‘t drive and I need to help my family because they always come first. After this move our money has been getting drained from all the people we have to transport. Seven people including dogs does alot to the state of one‘s bank account I‘m sure.
When I called USAA they told me it was all on me and I had to pay what the scammers or whoever managed to get into my account took. I don‘t have the funds to even put a chip in the negative balance I have. It scares me, only being and having my first bank account restricted. Not a very ideal start to being an adult. All I could do was put just a little amount of 18 cents in my account.
I kindly ask for any donations from anyone who is willing to help. I‘d really appreciate it. I just hope to get started back up again.
If anyone wants an image of the transactions from my account just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
All I need is 1000 dollars. It‘s alot but even a donation of ten cents will help me alot. Thank you for reading my post.
