    877-999-7515 texted and said her name was Shannon and asked me to do personal training for her four kids. She skipped the pleasantries and ignored the questions i asked her wanting to talk immediately about the cost. I gave her a price and her response was. "Your estimate sounds good, I'm willing to proceed with payment so as the kids can get started Asap for the training and also i will need a little favor from you concerning the private cab driver that will bring my kids to you for the whole session." I asked what the favor was and her response was "The favor is that I'm yet to make payment to the driver that will bring my kids for the whole sessions due to the fact that they don't have facility to accept credit card, so i would need you to charge my card for both your service and his so you can help me coordinate his payment. I'll pay for the extra credit card company tax and every extra expense this may cost on helping out on these." Obviously she hadn't arranged payment yet as only two hours had gone by during this text conversation. At first I couldn't understand how this would help her in anyway but realized she would then want me to give cash or check to her so-called-driver ( probably herself) and I would be out the money as it is mostly likely a fraudelent charge to someone else's credit card. When I looked up how to report this scam I found out Credit card companies will call merchants to reverse charges that are fraudelent. I.e. I wouldn't be receiving money from the credit card company for my services and the scammer would disappear as soon as I gave them my money since I got "paid" from the credit card company. Plus you would be helping them commit personal identity theft.

    This person sent a txt message asking about training. But when she/he talked about sending kids with a driver I got suspicious. This is not the first story. I get this kind of txt after every two to three months
