I live in New Jersey and my son wanted to order some toys from this guy who said he makes them in his house and he could give him the best deal, but before he could send these toys he needed my 16 year old son to put $200 into his bank account. The guy then gave my son his wells Fargo bank account info and told him as soon he deposits the money he will ship his toys. Well, that never happened.
My son called the guy up and he told my son, “I’m only the middle guy, and my boss is in Nigeria and you need to put another $200 in my account because now I have to ship the toys from elsewhere.” So my son deposited another 200 dollars into this guys bank account.
My son has sent these jerks a total of $650. Is there anything I can do to these individuals? At this point even if I don’t get the money back it’s okay but I don’t want this happening to other kids and I want to teach these guys a lesson that you’re not above the law. The guy is still calling my son up saying that he is pissed off that he didn’t get more money.
What can I do now?
