Watchout Everybody: Citizensaid.org Is Scamming People For Money
Citizensaid.org is Posing As A Government Agency
If your reading this your, probably wondering what or who is Citizensaid.org. Citizensaid.org is an a group of scammers, who are posing as governmental agencies aid in the payment of your personal bills. The scam was well thought out, and sounds almost to good to be true. Off First Glimpse your waived to a site through the web. the address is www.citizensaid.org. They claim that they are a government funding organization designed to help individuals pay bills with government funding. They are not a government organization. They will have you fill out a list with your information. They ask for your social security number, your name, your address, etc., all personal information. Then the form asks for your billing information, for the bills you need paid of course. You can't enter the info on the site because the sheet is in pdf format supposedly. An if you type info into the slots on the site it can't be saved. So they will instruct you to print the information out and fax it to this number (888)415-9767. Upon entering this number as a fax it will not accept the fax. This will prompt you to call the number.When you call the number there is a recording that will answer an tell you to email the info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then in about 24-48 hours they will send you an email, showing the bills that were paid, and the amount you owe. Now supposedly you are to pay them back 13.8 percent of the total amount of the bill paid. Who ever they are, they are very knowledgable of both the banking and internet industries. After they make the payments to your accounts via credit card, they contact you through email, and inform you that you have 24-48 hrs to make a payment, or the payment will be reversed and you will be responsible for the payment to them with interest as well as the payments of your bills submitted. This is because in the banking industry it takes anywhere from 24-48 hours for electronic debits to post. Upon the receipt of your payment you think everything is ok. About 24-72hours later you will receive notice that your payment was reversed or stopped to you creditor on your billing account. Know I myself am disguisted with this kind of fraudulent behavior because it is unethical, and immoral. I decided to write a hub about it to inform people to keep them from losing their money to these fraudulent scams. They will also give u an address to send a Moneygram or Western Union Payment and they use google checkout . Here is the address 11 Orange Street Hopewell, Jamaica. No zip code, and get this they don't have a receive code Moneygram. An from the prompter tone you are instructed, to use the so called fax number, if asked for a telephone number enter, (888)415-9767. Here is the thing ;this was supposed to be a fax number, so why would you enter that as the contact number. The telephone system is automated, and it seems to be that of legitimacy; however it is not. They have several email addresses all of them are citizensaid.org emails. They are committing fraud all over the U.S. States denoted to date are Florida, Alabama, and Virginia.
Apparently, The Better Business Bureau has been alerted about this so called government agency. They also have many reports at the Better Business Bureau concerning Citizensaid.org. for more info regarding the scam contact the Better Business Bureau at http://spokane.bbb.org/article/scammers-masquerade-as-government-agency-citizens-aid-government-agency-of-fl-25722.
