I bet Anthony Farrer (Timepiece gentleman) thought the exact same thing, right up until the FBI knocked on his front door. $14k doesn't sound like a lot to some people, but $14k x 10 or x 100 is certainly meaningful.

Where are you getting this information? If it is true info from a credible source, it sounds like you might actually get your money back. Good luck and I hope it works out for you!

She is located in Fort Wayne IN. I could call her because the guys here found out where she was working. I called to Lancia Homes and she confirmed the 14K were in her account and that she would return the funds. But she disapoeared.

I got in touch with the Fort Wayne police Department and the officer David Ladigan could talk to her. She was again buying time with the mentioned fraud audit to be done by PNC

I have been waiting 4 week to that audit. My bank has been daily requesting the money to PNC. Yesterday PNC confirmed that Dawn Hirschy has not given his authorization to return the money.

I called to Mr Ladigan and he told me I had to talk to Allan County police department. I Did it but nobody helped me. They say I have to talk to the spanish police. This is like saying nothing.

If anybody could help me to call the police or even has any contact with the police in IN i would be more than grateful

Didnt you say you already spoke to an officer with the Ft Wayne police dept? What would any of us contacting the police do to help??

My friend, I feel your pain. A year ago, I was scammed on here for $17k. I was foolish and didnt do my due diligence. I talked to my local police, I filed with the FBI, etc. Nothing happened. Lost my money. Lesson learned. Its looking like you might have to accept a similar result. I am sorry

Wow congratulations! Had to get caught up on all these posts but Iím glad you got that woman fired and youíre getting your money back. Are you able to press wire fraud charges on that woman now that you have her identity?

Does anyone actually believe that a scammer voluntarily wired back money to the victim? Multiple law enforcement authorities actually doing something? Really?

I am having trouble believing anything is true in this whole thread. This whole thing has read like a conjured up soap opera.

Perhaps I am wrong, but just stating my honest opinion as I have been following this one.

It sounds like the woman was used as a mule of sorts, also part of a (different) scam.

Nope! Definitely a load of B. S. We are being trolled, by someone who wants to have fun, at our expense. Thieves do not return money. Why would there be a middleman/ woman? The whole story is a lie. I have thought so, from the start. Come on, people!

That is exactly what happened to me years ago in the first and only time I was scammed online. It was a low five figure wire that I sent for a watch.

In my case the scammer was using his real name and friend's bank account and I tracked them both down with the help of a private detective I knew (he didn't charge me anything for his services, P.I. was a friend) and threatened to prosecute them both. Also the scammer was located merely in another state, not overseas.

I actually did turn in reports to the FBI but not with any local police departments. I kept talking to local FBI agents even went to see them in person, but as far as I knew, they weren't doing anything.

That scammer little by little (took several deposits) deposited in cash the money into my account and made me whole. I just kept pressuring him and making him believe that I was right on his trail and about to have him picked up by the authorities. I had located other victims and kept telling the scammer that I was going to line them all up against him. I guess he cracked and figured that he had better take care of me.

Shortly afterwards I got a call from a detective local to the scammer who told me the scammer had been arrested, for doing the same thing to multiple victims, and wanted to confirm with me what the scammer told him, that I had been repaid. The detective told me that as far as he knew, I was the only victim who had been repaid. I don't know if the FBI gave that detective my name and number, or if the scammer did himself by way of trying to claim that he was a good guy. I told the detective the truth, that I had been repaid in full.

On down the line the scammer's attorney called me and asked me for a letter to confirm that I had been made whole. This was going to be presented to the court at his sentencing. I gave them the letter.

I've been scammed twice with regards to watches in my life - once online as described, was made whole, and once in person. The time I was scammed in person was following right on the heels of having sold a few watches to legitimate in person buyers who gave me such a good feeling and were so honest that I was lulled into thinking that everyone was okay.

I'm not a watch dealer just a collector.

Not everyone is okay, that is for sure.

Is there any possibility anyone could helpe me me to file a report in the US. I have an email chain with the wire screenshot, etc

thanks
OP I'm so sorry for your situation, but if any good can come from this then Let's use this as a learning opportunity for everyone: The above is a MASSIVE red flag. Jerome L asked to wire funds to an account in "Dawn Hirschy" name, that is an immediate no-go and a clear sign of a scam using a bank account set up with someone else's stolen identity.

I was scammed by someone once too and got my money back - and more - because I figured out where he worked and knew someone there. I did that and messaged ~20 of his relatives. I made him pay me for my time too.

This is just getting weirder and weirder. So Dawn is a real person and she's either in on the scam with "Jerome" (which is so stupid because she's used her actual name and address) or there's a significantly more convoluted explanation to all of this. Can't wait until the next episode!
