The initial contact was made via text. And individual going by the name of Houston William using the cell phone number 256-290-4552 text me saying "Good day. This is Houston William from TCG Consulting Inc, your posted resume on www.careerbuilder.com has been reviewed by our company for a Data Entry position with a pay of $25.00 hourly. We would like to know if you are interested?:" Before I could reply I received a text from a 256-290-4548 from a "Lilly G Robinson", asking me to respond to her text as to whether I was interested in the position and she needed to know as soon as possible because she had already contacted multiple interested individuals....lol. by that time, I had already responded to H. William. So she backed off. Anyway, William proceeded to tell me about this position, he sent me their "company" website and asked me to review the site. He informed me that after I reviewed the site that I needed to get on Google Hangouts and speak with his hiring manager, Anderson Houston. Boy was that a trip! He told me that he was going to send me a check large enough to purchase a mini office. I was to purchase a Mac Book with a "special" accounting software plus shipping logistics, an all-in-one printer, a separate photo copier.....which I know is unnecessary when you have an all-in-one printer.....then he asked me how long would it take for a check to clear in my bank. And asked who I banked with and wanted to know if I banked with any additional banks, just in case :/ They wanted me to get the check and deposit it in my bank...ensuring that it would clear that evening (All of a sudden he knows it was clear, but just moments earlier he was unsure). After he got all the instructions, he asked if I had any questions. I said why would you send me a check to buy my equipment, when the company could just purchase the equipment themselves with the software pre-loaded instead of me buying it, and then sending it off to some random software company to have the software loaded, and for the software company to send it back to me. I seemed like a lot of wasted energy. He explained that the company preferred it this was so that I would benefit by the equipment being in my name. Weird. anyway its a huge scam. I didn't lose any money. And I told them not to contact me anymore.

The caller called on Friday March 23 from 800 531 5000 and identified themselves from direct tv, stating since we are Amazon members we qualify for a special promotion. We have to pay 2 months in advance and combine all our services: internet, cable and cell phone and they will drop the bill to 209.00 a month for 2 years. We had to buy an Amazon gift card and call 888 630 3832. My husband bought the card and called the number. An automated system answered identifying himself as Direct TV and when you select 0 speak to a rep we were connected to a live person who identified himself as a Direct TV & was able to repeat the offer and took the Amazon Gift Card as payment.

We called direct tv to verify payment on Monday March 26 2018 and found out we were scammed.

Type of a scam Employment

I was contacted via indeed by Nancy Jackson, HR manager for a job offer for "Purchasing Officer". I became suspicious in the way the job description was explained that I was to buy all kinds of products in which I would be reimbursed for and ship them out to their main mail handling center which they would forward overseas. It didn't sound quite right- and there was no official interview. So I did some checking around and digging. I found out through another email address that the person used "[email protected]" I found this other company and looked up their website under "whois". This company was based in New York. I looked at this company website and it was identical to the website for the new company name they are now using "World Transportation Logistics Services" based in Atlanta GA. I then looked on the ScamPulse.com website for the Va.Bok.International company and read the complaints which are obviously JOB SCAM COMPLAINTS! These scammers moved to Atlanta Georgia and are doing the same thing now with a different name. Very crafty individuals. I have all of the contracts and sign-up forms but I did not fill any of them out.

I was trying to sell a car on Craigslist. A person texted me saying they wanted to see a VIN report before they could make an offer. They sent a direct link (http://officialvinn.com). Fortunately, I never click direct links. The real website is officialvin.com (with only 1 n). Seller beware!!!

I do believe I was caught in a scam and I was wondering if your company would be will to help track the payment I made. These people are using the Direct TV company and they have come up with a very realistic promotion offer, that is very believable. Here is what happened:

On Feb 24, 2018, I was called several different times by 'Direct TV'. When I finally decided to answer, the person on the line was offering me a great promotion. I was skeptical, so I listened to the entire offer. They stated:

"Direct TV has partnered with Amazon in order to offer their valued customers a 5 month promotion of $59.99 per month for 2 years. The 1st 5 months would need to be paid up front using an Amazon gift card as this would be helping out Amazon and this is the reason why they could offer this promotion. Once the 1st 5 months were paid using an Amazon gift card, the remaining 19 months would be billed monthly at $59.99". They also said, in addition to this special offer, I would also be receiving a $100 Visa debit/credit card in the mail.

They gave me a code to use: DTV767-017

They told me to call back to the following phone number: 888-343-9704 and to press #1 for billing. When calling this number, it comes up with the Direct TV music in the background and a rep from 'Direct TV' answers the call.

I thought it was a legitimate offer since the offer was presented by 2 separate people the first time and then when I called back the person I spoke with restated all the same information. I asked several questions to confirm the offer and the person had my billing details and knew my account number, so I honestly thought I was talking with someone from Direct TV.

I gave them the Amazon number from the gift card that I purchased and away went my money....

On March 2nd, I noted that my regular payment of $xx was debited from my checking account to Direct TV. I had been told that there would be no further payment activity since I had made the 5 months using the Amazon gift card. I called Direct TV and the rep I spoke with said there was no record of any payment of $300 on my account. He escalated the concern to the next management level and I was given an address and told to send them the details. I sent a copy of the Amazon gift card that was used for the scam.

These thieves need to be stopped.

Thank you

Offered promotion from DirecTV/AT&T for being a good current customer. They offered a reduction in bill to $99/month for 24 months including all premium channels and NFL Sunday Ticket, if the first three months were prepaid. If payment was made same day, they would also send a $100 Visa card. “Daniel” provided a number that was supposed to be Directv promotions/billing to call and accept offer, and provided a promo code to use. At the end of the call, “Daniel” said the first bill had to be paid with an Amazon prepaid gift card. He was pretty convincing up until that point, even attempting to maintain an American accent (not very well).

Mr XXXX received a phone call from someone who said they were calling from AT&T. They told him that AT&T was going out of business & changing over to a company called Hirsh. Mr. XXXX gave them his name, addr, AT&T account #, and birthdate. They kept transferring him back and forth to who they said was AT&T & Hirsh. Mr. XXXX is now afraid he may be targeted financially.

Someone calls and says directv has a great deal for $59.99 a month with all movie channels and Sunday ticket included. The trick is you have to buy an amazon card for $300.00 and pay with that card for six months in advance. It is suppose to be an amazon promotion according to them. You get a number to call back and give the numbers off the card. After they get the numbers - you are scammed out of $300

Type of a scam Tech Support

Pretends to be offshoot tech support of Microsoft or other major companies. Immediately says the problem requires them to remote in. Find numerous problems like viruses (including on a printer) and they escacall to technicians, who write bogus corrections plans including monitoring plans for outrageous prices. Meanwhile they have access to your computer and copy files, implant malware and do who knows what. Then ask you for payment, where the form shows them your input credit card information, or worse, banking information. Points to BBB rating as proof that the company is legitimate. This is very disturbing.
