Received a phone call from Richard Phelps. He wanted to know if I was interested in selling a company I invested in during 2013. I was not even aware that a company existed, even though I did invest and lost $13,500. $11,000 was returned to me by my Visa Bank card. The value of the company was listed at $26,500. Of course I was interested, as I was still paying off $2,500 on another credit card. He initially told me that I could split the commission payment into two separate payments. I sent a $2,100 Cashier’s Check to the Mesa address. When I phoned to make sure they had received the check, the office help (Jasmine) told me that the commission check must be paid in full, before the business could be sold. I had some mutual funds that I cashed in and had $2100 wired to their bank account (US Bank). When I phoned again I was told that the money must be held for 4-6 weeks before being processed and the funds of the sale sent to me. OH–they forgot to tell me that the “hosting” company wanted $1,800. As I was offered a refund during all the proceedings listed, I opted to get the refund of $4,200 and forget the whole thing. But it would be 4 – 6 weeks before I would get my money back. This all began on January 23, 2015, and to date I have not received any money. They use cell phones and all but one number has “telephone” problems, and the number I can get through to has a mailbox that is full and cannot take any messages. I have filed with the Attorney General in my state, with the BBB in Arizona, and the Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs. I also sent certified letters to these individuals asking them to send me my money. This has been going on since January 2015 and it is now the end of May 2015. I am desperate. I live on my Social Security and a small pension. The funds I sent were placed on a line of credit from my bank, and the selling of my mutual funds. I am behind on paying my bills, and risk losing my apartment if I do not receive this money. Can you please help me? .
