just got a call from The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet and they are going to be doing segments on scams the next few weeks.

http://www.mandjshow.com/

They are looking for victims of scams who have lost money and would be willing to share their story, and would be available to be taped in the next couple of weeks.

Do not post your personal information here . . . PM it to me.

This whole thing got put on hold for a while, but now it is back on. If you are willing to be interviewed and by on the show (in NY . . . they will fly you out there) let me know. They do want a variety of victims, so if your story is unique there is a better chance you will get picked.

Also, they may be interested in speaking with victims who have been criminally charged due to a scam.

So, if you are interested, PM me and I will send you the contact information.

Thanks,

Shawn,

Is this morning show on nation wide or is this one local to NY?

Also, I see someone on here posting that they are going to share info with Fox's morning show, do you know if that is the nationwide one on Fox news channel or is that local for that poster?

This show is a national show, filmed in NY. It is on at the same time as Regis and Kelly.

And yes, that poster would be talking about this show.

It is scheduled to air Tuesday March 25th. I will not be on it, but my husband Jeff may be on it. (I started a new job recently and have training that I could not get out of that day)

They were talking at one point of doing two segments, on two different days. If I hear any more I will post it.

I just watched the clip online and I am disappointed. They called it a 419 scam, and acutally the victims were a counterfeit cashier's check scam victim (exact same story as ours . . . selling a car online). Yes, I know that it is a variation or twist on the original 419 scam, but when you call it that people tune out right away because they here 419 and think that it is the "help me get $10 million out of the country" and not what REALLY happened.

The clip online Jeff did not even get to say ANYTHING! I am hoping that there is more, but they just did not post it online.

Shawn,
I was very disappointed in the show also. I watched the entire thing up to when Jeff was allowed to put in his about 10 words. That was the end of it. They made it more about the couple losing their house and moving into a trailer, then really about the scam. At least that is how I saw it. I was waiting for them to really explain the scam. I was sorry to see that it didn't go farther into scams. Thank you for taking the time for Jeff to be on the show even if the show didn't show the scam very well.

I have not even seen the whole show yet . . . our DVR flaked out on us and did not record it! :roll:

From what I saw with the online segment and what I have heard from others, I am NOT HAPPY!

If anyone from the Mike and Juliet show contacts you to be on the show at a later date, say no!

It seems like they just want a sob story, and do not want to get the really important information out. Jeff told me that they told him before the show what questions they were going to go to him with, so that he would be ready(that is when he would have gotten in the facts about the banking terms), and then Mike did not even go to him with those questions and threw some other question at him so he was not really ready for it.

I would also like to publicly apologize to the Larry and Valarie McBride. Had I known that this show was going to focus more on the loss of your house and asking you over and over if you were ashamed/embarrassed I would have NEVER asked you to be a part of it! You are victims and you have NOTHING to be ashamed of!

I never watched the show. I recorded it but erased it once I saw peoples comments about it on here. So if I am getting this right Shawn they made the victims look more like common criminals and tried to make them feel like they were 2 inches tall. That's not right at all.

no . . . not making them feel like the criminal, but asked them over and over "Didn't you feel embarrassed /ashamed /like a fool" . . . every time he asked it again I was like "okay, we get it, victims go through those feels at first . . . lets talk about getting past that, the red flags, that "the check has cleared" does not mean anything. They made is sound like only someone who did not have a clue could fall for these scams.

That's not right. I am glad I erased it otherwise I would have gotten irritated. I am sure people who fall for these scams feel bad enough and don't need to have someone rub it in or kick them when they are down.

Shawn I am glad you and Jeff try so hard to get the word out on these scams you both have helped numerous people and hopefully one day you can get the media to start putting some effort into scam awareness and education.
