Complaint / review text:
I had been corresponding with an individual for 9 to 10 months over the internet - (Helen Love Roland) [email protected] We had planned to make travel reservations to my home. This individual has a trust fund from her late father. Friends of her father owed him money. One friend of her father was sending a check in the amount of $2,750.00 via UPS to my home. She suggested i deposit this check into my checking account once it arrived and when the money became available she would instruct me as to what to do. The check was delievered and deposited on the 14th of May. The funds of this check became available on the 17th of May. She requested i send money thru Western Union to this person: Lucia Vaneza Salas Bone in the amount of $2,200.00 on 17May2011 and another $100.00 on 14May2011. Reservations were never made and this young lady (helenseekinglove) requested i send more money. I refused. On the 19th of May, i received a phone call from my bank saying the check is fradulent. I was asked to come in and sign a payback agreement with the bank in the amount of $2,700.00 over a period of time. Have not had contact with Lucia Bone, the person who received the money thru western union. Made an attempt to reach Helen Love via email, no response until 5/20/2011. I filed a police report with Middlesex Township Police. The story at this point is, someone is sending another check to my home via UPS to cover the fradulent check. This letter has been enroute to my home since 5/19/2011. It hasn't arrived to date - 7/5/2011. The persons listed in this complaint has $2,300.00 in their possession from a check that is worthless, fradulent. It is my belief that the person that sent the check and the person that received the money transfer know each other and planned this event. The name of my bank is Manufacturers and Trust Company or M & T Bank. Copy of the check is obtainable.information on internet communication with Helen Love Roland available upon request.
