Hi, I wanted to sell my laptop and a guy reached me by WhatsApp, number +44 7451 249365. He promised to pay shipping cost if I sent laptop to UK. Address AG CRAIG
I believed and did it as he sent a payment proof. When the item was delivered he told there was a problem with a bank transaction and I have to pay the difference 500 eur and he will send me all the amount. Bank email [email protected]. I believed again and sent the money by PayPal. The thing is that I’m from Lithuania and I knew that there is such a bank as HSBC in UK. Is there any possibility to contact any institution in UK and report this?? I have his PayPal account and address

I am sorry to learn that you have lost out to a Cyber Criminal

The delivery address for the deception is in the United Kingdom

To report a fraud or attempted fraud to the UK authorities you should contact Action Fraud http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ - I cannot do this on your behalf..

Thank you, I reported the fraud. May I ask is there any chance to get even some money back from a fraud? In your opinion?
