Our office received multiple calls from a woman claiming to be from the Texas BBB.org, but I wasn’t available to take the call and she refused to leave a voicemail and would just hang up when speaking with our Receptionist. I called back the phone number that showed in our call log which was 1-800-111-4619, but the call would not go through and the number would show as not valid to call back. The woman called our office again and I was finally able to speak with her. I questioned who she was and what was the reason for her call. The woman told me her name was Sandra Davidson with the BBB.org and she said that they are finishing up on an annual development and needed information from us. I told her that I didn’t have any information available (I didn’t want to disclose anything to her) but if she could provide me with a call back phone number then we could contact her back. She refused to give me a phone number and said that they can’t receive incoming calls to their department, then the call was disconnected.

Mike Microsoft calling for $8,000 for tech support back in October and now he is receiving the calls from number above stating they are the BBB.org and they are going to refund his money. No complaint was filed with the BBB.org and would have no reason for the BBB.org to contact him. This was not the BBB.org but assuming another scammer attempting to get more bank information to deduct more funds.

Received a Call from a Richard Parker claiming to be from the BBB.org saying that "James Williams from California gained accessed to our Pay Pal account and charged $399.99 to our account" Richard asked if we wanted to accept or cancel the charge. I said to cancel. Then Richard proceeded to ask for my address, account numbers, paypal information and if I had a computer and internet access. I then turned him over to my husband and my husband told him he would call the BBB.org to clarify this call. My Husband called BBB.org and was warned this is a SCAM and to not provide them with any information and not answers their calls.

Type of a scam Moving
Initial means of contact Not applicable

I received a call from a Gale Santos claiming to be with the BBB.org of Texas, I asked her 4 times and she confirmed that yes she is with BBB.org of Texas and she wanted to know if we have found a place to relocate our business. I ignored the question and I asked what is their mailing address and she said 12555 Corporate Drive in Suite number 100 in Irving, Texas. When I asked for a call back number she asked me if we had found a place to move once again, and I said I will have to verify with my manager can I please have your call back number and she hung up. I knew they were pretending to be with the BBB.org since the moment I picked up the phone that is why I asked for questions. I followed up by calling the actual BBB.org and it was confirmed by the agent that they are not associated with the information I provided.

Received multiple telephone calls from someone who claims to be a representative of the BBB.org and goes by the name Sam Holison. This person has a heavy non-English speaking accent. He provided the following phone number (888) 213-6000. This number is not valid.
He claims to be doing annual research of BBB members and wanted to know when we might be moving our business. When pressed about the unusual nature of this call coming from the BBB, he became agitated and then terminated the call.

They call claiming to be George or Tracy from the BBB. They try to ask for personal information to confirm my name, claiming there is suspicious or fraud reports about you. They say it will impact my social security. Do not give any information out. Call the BBB.org and report these scammers.

Type of a scam Debt Collections
Initial means of contact Not applicable

I am a Walmart employee. I had an elderly customer that attempted to purchase $2000 in Walmart gift cards. She had received a phone call from a man claiming to be with the BBB.org informing her that she had been mistakenly credited $2000 into her bank account. In order to repay it she was told she had to purchase the gift cards and then give the man the gift card number. She then pulled the phone out of her purse to talk to the man that was waiting on phone. I spoke to the man. Even after identifying myself as a manager and informing him that I would not sell the gift cards and that I was giving her fraud information he was very aggressive in demanding that I did not speak to her anymore and let him talk to her.

Jessica who said she was a BBB.org agent from the BBB.org of Washington DC called to say I had won $750,000. She asked if somebody called me and told me I had won money. She made it seem like she knew something about me winning money and that it wouldn't be a scam. About an hour later I got a call saying I had won, and the money would be at the airport in Cleveland, OH. He told me I should try to get ahead of the taxes, as the winnings would put me in another tax bracket. He asked if I had asked him for anything. he gave me a claim number 5067156USA and a phone number 202-683-7750 to call to claim my prize. I called them back. They didn't answer BBB.org. Less than an hour later, he called me back. I told him I called the number you gave me, but they didn't answer BBB.org. I told him they answered like they were a law firm, saying they knew how to keep my name a secret. I talked to Eric Taylor and a Mexican guy who was hard to understand. They knew my address.

Called and said they were from BBB.org. I asked for identifying information they gave me a name and an I number (which I assume was made up). They wanted to know how much I paid for the last computer I purchased. I said this sound false because I hadn't purchased a computer ( a lie on my part ) - they hung up.
