Let me preface with my overall I feel stupid moment, blanketed by anxiety I am hoping for some relief here.
I was contacted by someone on Facebook who had mutual friends and I just got back from a music festival where there were several people I met and thought this person was one of them.
We chatted for a few weeks and overall seemed like a nice person. Anyways they said they live in Cali and make all sorts of psychedelic products. anyways it just so happened that over the weekend I spoke with a few people about making online purchases and they seemed like it was pretty easy.
Being the skeptic I tried to only purchase a very small amount, somthing like $100 worth. Also cause I'm broke as a joke.
Anyways proceeded to do the moneygram payment transfer thing with the promise of overnight delivery.
So I got a few called from some shipping service claiming I had to confirm my address via email, which I stupidly did.
anyways a few days go by and I don't see anything deliver, I get another email from them claiming I need to pay $650 in refundable insurance. Here's the emails I received so far.
How do I know if this is a scam or not? How do I know I'm not going to get in real trouble by the police?
I already have problems sleeping for the past week. Any help either legally or otherwise is greatly appreciated. I am hoping this saves someone else some money and headache. Lost some money but I guess compared to the other posts I've seen it's not too bad. I am just kicking myself for attempting to do some online transactions for some illegal drugs. All in all, I won't be doing any of that shit anymore, it's not worth the worry.
