  9. I received the same text asking me to send my drivers license and full name to John Kelton

  10. I just got a text myself and they are asking for an ID with a pic, if it’s a scam , what can they do with the info on your ID, the info on your ID id all over, ID’s are used basically on a daily bases, that’s what I believe, if someone knows different, please let me know, it does sound fishy

  11. I received the same. Very sad that people want to take advantage of others like this. I had my hopes up because I really needed the 10k. OK well thanks for the info.

    1. You’re not alone my friend. I to have received the 10k one as well. Very disappointing to say the least.

  12. my name Robert Cistone and I’m from Philadelphia PA and I did receive a text message about the wolverine club ffc and it said due to the pandemic they were donating 3,650 to 700 random selected participants and once our identity was verified through ID.ME we would immediately receive the winning payment of 3,650 dollars ill be in touch ti let you know if that really is the case but it does seem alittle to good ti be true I read other text scams but they have ridiculous money payout amounts that is purely obvious that it is a scam. I only question the text I received because the money payout in the text I received is much lower than the others

  13. Hello, I write you today to provide an update on more continuing scams. I received a text regarding the same letter 2 days ago. I will attach pic of text if allowed to bring awareness to the situation. No Pic so I copied and pasted below.

All forms of verification will be done by ID.ME. Kindly text Mr. JOHN FAGALA now with a copy of your identification to get you verified and also have access to your funds”

  16. I received the same message. I gave him a picture of my driver’s license, scanned my face, last 4 of my social security number. I asked was he scamming me, I’ve been a victim of identity theft before. I have my credit information monitored. I gave him the last 4 of my social security number and he had the other 5. Said they work with the IRS for identity verification. I feel so sick.

  17. I gave him my picture I’d, my face, last 4 digits of my social security number. So is someone walking around here impersonating me. I feel sick.

  18. Like all of you, I received the same text. “John” wanted me to go along with his 2 step process to verify who I am..which was to include my identification or DL. Of course I let him know that I do not give out personal information without speaking to either him or someone affiliated with the matter.. it took a while for him to ask again before my picture ID, with no mention of possibly speaking to someone is that can verify who the fuck they are.. the next text mentioned the systems were slow and he was too busy and unable to speak with anyone, because he was so tied up giving away free money.
    Also I called the number from the text message and a recording from the company or whatever it is, named” honesty” I gave you two options, speak w an operator, that never picked up or a 4 digit extension for whomever.
    We all love free money, if anyone can give me a response saying anything good or non fraudulent.. please feel free.
