My sister Amanda fell victim to a scam, her family is considered Working class. Only the husband works Amanda stays at home with their 4 kids.
Before the scam happened her family has struggled with money an after falling Victim to the scam they have had little to no spending money. she got a phone call From the scammer, she usually hangs up on people she Doesn’t know but this Time she decided to hear what the person want’ed, which turned out to be a Terrible idea.
The scammer said the government wanted her and they randomly picked a number of people To go out and buy Xbox cards and give them the codes on the cards. straight away She knew it was a scam because why would the government want people to go out And buy Xbox cards, she replied I’m not near any store’s they then said you’re 5 Mile’s away from Walmart which she was this scared her so she took her kids and Drove to Walmart to buy the cards. she told them there was only a certain amount Of cards at the store they then told her to go to a different store to buy more or her Kids would get hurt, they heard her kids while she was on the phone call, this made Her start getting emotional. She followed their instructions and drove to the other Store and bought more cards all together she lost $1200. to her family that’s a lot of Money, this is making it hard for them to pay their house bill’s, they have 4 kid’s so this is making them unable to do Anything with there kids at this point they are lucky to even go out for dinner without worrying about how much money they are spending they had a vacation Planned for 2 weeks after the incident which they had to cancel which made their kids upset and made me and their family upset because they wouldn’t be going on vacation with us, I don’t expect any donations but I would be very thankful because it would allow me to surprise them with the Money they lost or even some of the money, they would be extremely thankful for anything. I just want my sister her husband to not worry about the money they lost.
