Victim Location 23235
Type of a scam Phishing
On October 2nd at 11:10 A.M. a text message from the number 479-208-7866 was sent from an individual stating he was a diplomat name James Shaka. He was inquiring for my ex boyfriend stating he was assigned to deliver an 750,000 ATM package as he has just arrived to the Airport in Atlanta, Georgia. He wanted my ex to confirm his mailing address. I immediately contacted my ex and he stated he knows nothing of this issue. I informed James to stop contacting me because it is the wrong number. He proceeded to state I needed to confirm the address because the 750,000 ATM package may be mine. Clearly, this guy was just trying to seek out any type of personal information. When I googled the number is came up as a Japanese tracking number. I start asking James many questions about his company he said he is from a UBA United Bank of America, later he said he was from United Bank of Benin Republic. He said he would not provide any identifying information but he could mail it if I confirm my mailing address. The he start talking about how customs has stopped in at the airport and demanding a tax clearance of $400.00 then it went down to $250.00. I hope you can do something about these scam artist. I am unable to send the messages but I will save them if you need them for future investigation.
