      Description of the Scam: The scammer, identifying herself as Celia Aguayo, approached the victim on Facebook, claiming she could assist in paying off mortgages and credit card debts through investments in Bitcoin. Initially hesitant, the victim was persuaded to invest, maxing out two credit cards for $11,000. Aguayo pushed for further financial commitments, including mortgaging the victim’s house and applying for high-interest credit cards. When the victim resisted, Aguayo resorted to threats, falsely claiming that the IRS would seize their home unless they complied with her demands for an additional $5,000 to meet the $15,000 target investment. The contact ended in February 2024 after persistent refusal and threats.
