Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a call on my cell phone yesterday from Bank of America. Barbara Jones. Her identification number is 3131BJ They are a holding company for Publishers Clearing House. Gave confirmation number 792236359. She asked me to call her back. She gave phone number 253-780-2511. I called the number back and Barbara Jones answered. I won $2.4 million from Publishers Clearing House. Because of the Coronavirus they are not making home visitations. Health concerns. They did not ask for money. She gave me another representative to call Peter Gylinski. His phone number is 509-382-7967. I called and spoke with him. He asked a lot of questions. He asked if I was an American citizen. Asked if I had a checking or savings account. He kept saying this is one hundred percent legitimate. I was uncomfortable but I gave the name of my bank. He needed to know where to deposit the check. He did not ask for my account number. He said he was going into a meeting and to cll him back. I was leery. I did not call back. He mentioned they checked with the Better Business Bureau. Something like that. He never asked for many. I went with the old adage. You can't cheat an honest man,

Total money lost $8,600
Type of a scam Bank/Credit Card Company Imposter Scam

We are a small business owner  working to make ends meet. We received a text on 8/9 from Bank of America fraud department or what we thought was asking if we had made a transfer for 3500 three times so we responded back no. Following we received a call which came from a Bank of America number the guy said he need to verify who we were and sent us a code which is what they normally do so we didn't think anything of it. He said so that the funds don't get pulled we need to transfer the funds back to yourself so he walked us through setting up a zelle using our email and before our eyes money was transferred and called was disconnected. At that moment something hit us and were in disbelief of what just happened.  We quickly called the bank and after minutes they said I'm sorry you have been scammed. At this moment we could hardly keep it together, money we were counting on now gone. We just welcomed our son home 2 days prior now relaying on this as a cushion while on maternity leave, we are told can take up to 90 days before we hear and chances of recovering are not good. Now we're 2 weeks in and haven't heard back. With now searching scams come to find out very similar incident occured to a man in California a man which had his account wiped out. This seems to be a growing issue and where hoping you can notify the community that scammers are working hard at it. Anything you can do is much appreciated.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM. I received this this morning. It is an automated system and they ask for all of your BofA: Your ATM/debit card has been restricted, please contact 415.202.6417 to authenticate your account. personal info. They ask for 16 digit card number, pin, ss #, date of birth and name. I do not have an BofA account so I called and put all fake info. Said my account was restored and I did not need to talk to a customer service representative. But if I wanted my balance to stay on the line and a representative would help, the call disconnected.

This person keeps calling with a Bank of America caller ID. They are not from Bank of America. They are trying to sell insurance. This company will not give their name and if you ask for a Manager they hang up on you. Beware of the scam to give out personal information from a company that is using Bank of America as a caller ID.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a call 11-28-2019 at 7:00 am from Bank of America a Mrs. Nancy Roberts claiming they have had this check for me for a week and a half trying to get a hold of me. They said it was from Publisher's Clearing House/Reader's Digest in the amount of $250,000.00. I had given information out on my visa card from that bank, and they instructed me to deposit $2000 into this person's account named Shanique Samuels in Fort Walton, Florida 32547. Then after the deposit would be made there would be a fed ex arriving this afternoon between 3-4 pm to deliver that check for the amount of $232, 500 on account of $17,000 going to the IRS. After the phone call with them this morning I actually called the Bank of America and the fraud department to let them know what had just happened. They had nothing showing on their system of any such check for me. So they blocked my card right away so no one could have any access to it and issuing me a new one. I did not deposit any money into that account that was sent to me so I have lost nothing. I could've lost quite a bit of money if I had proceeded with all of this but I had seen a couple red flags from the conversation alone. That's why I called the actual Bank of America out of Dallas TX to report this matter. People just be aware of phone calls like these so you don't fall into any sort of scam just hang up.

Thank You

When I answer my phone a recorder states that it is a call from Bank of America China and a person then begins to speak in a Chinese dialect. I don't understand what the person is conveying nor do I understand how they got my number or what the purpose is for calling me. Most importantly I have no way of asking them to remove me from their calling list.
