Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a scam call this morning on my home phone. Caller claimed to be with Bank of America. Callers name was Harris Stokes. He gave me phone number 980-209-2304. He told me to call Bank of America at this number. I called the phone bank. He said the President of the bank told him to call me. I won $2.5 million. Because I pay all my bills on time. This is a global international sweepstakes. I asked where are you calling from. He could not pronounce Charlotte NC. He said I will receive a $50,000 bonus today. I asked how much do I have to pay. He said I don't pay any money upfront. I will need to pay the IRS. He asked my birth date. I did not answer. He wanted to know the name of my bank. I did not answer. He started to get irate because I was asking too many questions.I hung up on him.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a call and it said press one and a man answered and wanted to verify my account and SSN and I told him he called me and if he was from the bank he should have my account there. He kept asking me for the numbers and I refused to give them to him over the phone unless I was the one who made the call and he got mad and said if you don't give them to me I am going to cancel your card. I hung up on him and he called back but didn't answer. I called Bank of America fraud unit and told her what happened and she told me that if the bank were going to lower my interest rate they would just do it and send me a letter. Who wouldn't want their interest rate lowered.

I did not bite. But, the email has a very legit appearance. It does, though, have several spelling and grammatical errors. It does not take you to a secured "https://" Bank of America website.

Type of a scam Phishing

Received the same email three times this month. It has the BofA logo on top. Here is what the first part reads:

"You have received this email for security reasons. We have detected an action that seems to be unauthorized by the account holder. It seems that one or more unauthorized devices was connected to your account. We have not fully restricted your account but you must confirm your identity in order to avoid any deviations.

Then it has a "click here to verify your account"

Since I saw it came from Germany, I knew it was a phishing email. It will be forwarded to [email protected]

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received an e-mail from the above scammer, stating " We're letting you know that we've detected some unusual activity on your Bank of America account on 12/18/2017 5:01:23." I looked up Bank of America and called them this morning, they of course, have no record of my name or anything about me. I did send a notice to [email protected] as requested by the agent. I had a card many years ago, probably over 20+years. I thought you would like to know about this.

I was told that because of my on-time payments I was eligible for lower interest rates on all my cards that were in good standing. I verified information about my cards and after feeling nervous about the call I called my credit card company and they didn't call. I had to replace my cards.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

The scammer left the following message: She was from the Bank of America and was calling for (she gave my daughter's correct full name). She said a replacement card for our daughter's credit card ending in (she gave the correct last 4 digits of the card) had been compromised. She said our daughter should activate the replacement card as soon as she got it because her present card would be closed on June 29, 2017. If our daughter had any questions she should call 1-800-793-5755. This compromise happened through Emergent. Our daughter called Bank of

America using the phone number on the back of her credit card and found out this was a fraud. She ordered a new card. We don't know how the scammers got her correct full name or the last 4 digits of her card. I haven't heard of this scam before and wanted to report it.
