Avoid Reload Scams 2019

MoneyPak Scams

Note: This section of our website is to help individuals to identify possible scams. MoneyPak scammers typically use the same methods and target the same types of people (usually elders and vulnerable people). By listing & keeping reported scams up-to-date, our hope is their methods & techniques can easily be identified. Scams involve not only MoneyPak, but gift card scams, prepaid debit card scams, money wire scams such as Moneygram/Western Union and more. The most common scammer will pretend to represent law enforcement personnel  stating that you miss jury duty, your doing something illegal and have to pay a fine with a MoneyPak or any number of things.

Reloading scams are an ongoing problem. Criminals are actively seeking vulnerable victims to convince them to pay for a service, virus removal etc.  using MoneyPak cards and other reload packs. They often fraudulently identify themselves as the police, government officials, bill collectors and employees of some company. Here we have collected a list of reload scam stories to help you fight the fraudsters. Please remember there is no legitimate service/stores anywhere that forces you to pay using any reload packs and  NEVER PAY ANYONE, EVEN US, USING A RELOAD PACK!!!

The below video is a scam video created by a third party website. The PayPal hack scam is not a traditional scam where the user tries to steal your money. However, they trick you into thinking you are getting free money. What they are really after is getting your personal information and getting you to complete a purchase so they can get the affiliate commission. We took the liberty to walk you through some of the scam websites.
