I am a samsung customer and last year i received a text message

Resolved Question:

I am a samsung customer and last year i received a text message on my phone saying that i was a samsung winner and that i had received a prize fund for £420,000.00 and Samsung goodies. Trusting in samsung i was told to pay just £99 to have my bankers draft and products to my address. i even email Samsung to ask if i was a winner and i was told it was a 100% genuine. After paying out over £20,000.00 because my bankers draft was discovered to be out of date and then receiving an ATM DEBIT CARD in the post but being told before i can use the card i have to pay an activating fee of £22'000.00 i now thinking i have been a victim of fraud. I have been emailing HSBC Malaysia and if this was genuine if the money could be transferred directly into my account in England which i know it can be done because i was dealing with this all the time when i worked for HSBC in the 90's. I feel very let down that these two major companies can pray on innocent people can you tell me where i can go from here? Even if i just get my £20'000.00 back i will be happy.
Kind Regards

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you but I have bad news.
You are indeed the victim of a scam and you have not in fact been dealing with either Samsung or HSBC.
i am sure that you have endless emails which say that they are from various employees of the companies - but none of them are real

If you find this hard to accept then google the contact details of both companies and contact them directly - you will find that they have no knowledge of the texts and emails and calls that you have been involved with.
I am so very very sorry.
You can report the fraud here
