Received a text in Messenger from a friend exchanged greetings, then she said: "I guess you must have heard about the life better foundation program". I responded no, she explained the program "its a special program that I myself benefited from recently and was so amazing, the assist individuals and helps to maintain good standard of living. with LBF you can buy a house, get a car, win a grant, start a business and many more opportunities." She forwarded me the website (http://lifebetterfoundation.org) and said she received $230,000 free money she doesn’t have to pay back to use to purchase a house. She gave specifics, click on the link below and it will lead to the website where you apply for a preferred package, "and make sure you keep me posted on how it goes, OK." I applied, gave minimal amount of info, received a confirmation letter, and a week later an update by email ([email protected]) asking for my status, homeowner, student, worker, etc. in order to proceed to the next level. The next day I received another email confirmation with "winning serial number, ticket number." the very next day I received a certificate stating I won $230 to be delivered by mail or courier, but I must first pay+ $5,750 "for the above charges" but I didnt see any charges above, and they then asked for a FedEx "within" my location. I sent my friend a text and asked her a question I’m sure she would know, and the person said they couldn’t remember, didn’t know, I asked the person to call me, it was important, I wanted to talk, and I didn’t receive a message after that. Not sure how they were able to messenger me using my friends face.
