I could not possibly be more irritated! I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED! AGAIN!
Last October I found classified ad in an online newspaper in San Francisco for something called a GREENPASS. Its a southwest flight voucher that can be used as a ticket any time, any where, for anybody. Usually employees of the airline get these. I was trying desperately to find a cheaper way to fly to Idaho for Gabe's birthday. Tickets were around $600 roundtrip for two people. YIKES! I was still just a hot wild single girl at this point - where most of my income was going towards jeans and fantastic hair products! I was NOT about to roll out that kinda cash for my sweet boyfriend's birthday! SOOO...what did I do instead? I answered the ad for greenpasses and found out for $300, I could get 2 roundtrip tickets. SOLD! And then the mysterious scamming began....
The seller provided me with a copy of his drivers license. His ugly lying face looked like this: (photo coming soon!)
He also gave me his phone number, which I called and actually spoke to the weasel.
I thought, well it cant be a lie or he wouldnt have sent me his DL and spoken to me on the phone. WRONG! He then suggested payment in the form of GREENDOT cards. I had never heard of these, but apparently they are pay as you go debit cards that you can re-charge. He told me to go to radio shack and purchase $300 worth of reload pin numbers and email them to him, and then he would overnight me the passes. I thought ok, if this guy is lying, I can call greendot and track the spending of this card. Wrong again!
So by the time I bought these pin numbers I was starting to get hesitant. I decided to send him one pin number for $100, and hold the other $200 for ransom until I got my tickets. As you might imagine he mysteriously disappeared and stopped answering the phone immediately after stealing my $100. Needless to say, I never got my tickets.
I was so furious I asked my mom to respond to his ad as well, trying to get some more information and to see if he was scamming lots of people. Sure enough he tried to sell her the same deal as me, only he slipped up and signed his email under a different last name. We did a google search on him and found all sorts of pictures. My mom rsponded to him with a "we know youre a scammer and we are turning you in to the FBI" email and all he said was haha - youll never catch me, ive been doing this for years!!! THE NERVE! We are still wondering how to get this guy. if YOU have any information or tips leading to the capture of MATHIAS OCHENSDORFF, please contact me!
SO scam number two has recently taken place! I know you are shocked! How can this be happening to ONE PERSON? But I assure you, this is all true information!
I recently in an act of depression purchased the boxed dvd set of Ally Mcbeal. I was THRILLED as I have been looking for this set for about 10 years now since the show ended. So I found one on ebay for a buy it now price of $100.00 I was in heaven! I immediately purchased it and paid right away, as it was such a good deal! (all the other listings were around $200). Well as soon as the auction ended, I received an email from the seller explaining that his info had been stolen and the thief was posting FAKE auctions under his name! The DVDs dont exist he said - dont pay for them he urged! WELL...I had ALREADY paid for them! So I opened a claim with paypal for undelivered goods...only to receive an email this week stating that my claim had been closed because the seller had provided a tracking number and proof that SOMETHING was delivered to my address!!! Imagine my surprise, because 1. the seller was fake and 2. There were no goods to deliver! Well I called the post office and they said yes, someone had left a notice on our door to come pick up the item, but nobody responded and so back to the seller it went! Im so IRRITATED! I MUST know what was in that package! Well I have been fighting this claim all month long. I want my money back and I want this BENBEN CHEN MAN FROM CHINA caught and tortured!!! Oh yeah, these movies I ordered were from a man in washington....but the mysterious package i got was shipped from china! So crazy!
SO the moral of these stories is this: when it seems too good to be true, it is. And Christy Beal is a smam-magnet. poor me.
