I was approached by text saying that I was selected by the RBA for benefits that I needed to fill out paperwork and pay $500 for the sum of $54,044 I was sent fake pictures of documents that I went back and found through google pics. Be aware of these people and their scams. They even have a website that looks halfway real.

Type of a scam COVID-19
I received a private message from my good friend about receiving $100,000 from the Relief Benefit Administration due to the COVID-19. She said she received hers and gave me a number to call to see if i qualify. I called the number and got no answer. 10 minutes later i got a call from someone who said they were a "relief agent" and asked me some questions. They said i qualified for the covid relief program and that in order to get the $100,000 i needed to go to a store like walmart or walgreens and get a $500 gift card and call them back for instructions. I realized at this point it was a scam and my friend must have been hacked.
