Type of a scam Phishing

I received an official-looking letter from "Bank of America" warning me that they required information from me or my account would be closed. The information they wanted was my date of birth and my SSN, which they referred to as a "tax identification number." The mailing included the letter in both English and Spanish, as well as what looked like IRS forms W-9 and W-8BEN, and a return envelope that required me to affix postage (a red flag).

The only dealings we have with Bank of America is a VISA card through AAA, which we have had for over 35 years. We do not have an account at BOA. The wording of the letter was suspicious, telling me to act before May 28, 2018 or my account could be closed (another red flag). I called the customer service number of our VISA account and the representative told me that no letter had been sent from them and there were no warnings concerning our account.

I did not respond to the letter and I called BBB.

We received an official looking letter from Bank of America that stated they needed "Critical information about our account status." It said that they were missing or had incomplete information on our account. The letter included an official looking IRS form W-9 which requested a Social Security Number and a signature. About a week after receiving this letter there was a follow up phone call from a very aggressive woman demanding the information. We did not give any information thinking it a bit peculiar that the IRS would use a bank to collect information from us.

We contacted Bank of America who said they had not sent any letter to us and they were sure it was a scam. The letter including the three pages of IRS forms all looked very official and correct, down to the four ways to get in touch with them to confirm and provide information to them. One of them was to contact the nearest financial center (the nearest one is over 200 miles away.) One of the "Red Flags" was that the name they used was my husbands shortened name instead of his longer given name.

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]

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.
