Shannon lost $200,000 to Gustavo Zamora Jr. Claiming that he would return her 5 year old son that was abducted to Mexico.
The cold-caller Zamora was very professional in his approach, with excellent knowledge of child abduction and successful claims of recoveries. Zamora answered all of Shannon's questions and their initial contact was followed up with calls from senior advisor CIA Agent Vicky. Later we find out that this is Gustavo Zamora Jr. Wife and does not work for the CIA.
Over the next 12 months, Shannon made a number of transfers to the fraudsters company Zamora and Associates, initially starting with $10,000. She was referred to a very professional looking website, http://www.zamoraandassociates.com and set up a direct deposit account.
Overall, Shannon sent $200,000.
Shannon then did some research and discovered that the company was fake but she was too embarrassed to tell anyone or report it to police. Shannon was contacted by police after they discovered the name Zamora on bank transfers
made to known fraudsters. Zamora is a known to police and is wanted all over the world for fraud.
Since learning of the fraud, Shannon has been contacted again by criminals, with offers to help her him get her son.
Shannon is now broke and still with out her son.
Unfortunately, there is little authorities can do to recover Steves $200,000.
