Scam Description

I bought and sent 3 $100 AMEX gift cards information over the phone and then text pictures of them along with my current address and a picture of my face. about an hour later they sent the attached Word document and claimed I needed to give $8000 before they could release the check or even show me any proof in-person. They then said if I go get another 2 $100 gift cards that would be good enough.
The original name they used was David Moore (badge# DM404US) phone number (276)266-8506 and then transferred to Manager – Andy Goldberg (309)487-8771.
