Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a call from a call-center stating they were calling my Capital One visa/mastercard. They stated they have been watching my account for the last 6 months and noticed I have been paying my bills on-time and more than the amount due. This was all true! The gentleman offered a lower interest rate and requested additional information. He asked to confirm the last four digits of my social security card, the credit card number, and expiration date. He then asked me to hold while he verified the rate he could offer me. When he came back on the line, he asked if I had any other credit cards. At this point, I realized it was a scam and said no. He asked me to hold again and then hung up. I called the number back immediately. The number is 770-223-7470. However, the number was no longer in service.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I received a call from 800-839-1639. A woman named Olivia Martin claiming to be with Georgia Mediation Group was on the line. She started telling me about a cash advance that I and a friend got using my checking account back in 2011 that apparently was never paid off. She explains that Allied Cash Advance is going to take me to court and press felony charges against me in regards to this debt as they have fulfilled their legal obligations by going through 4 collection agencies without success. The $296 debt is now $800. If I don't make payment arrangements and let it go to court, that amount will become $8,000 which includes $4,000 in attorney fees. As my state of Virginia now allows the Commonwealth Attorney's Office to employ an agency that uses the same tactics to collect on bad checks for businesses, I thought at first that this was a legit phone call and allowed myself to be talked into giving my debit card information and agreeing to a one time payment of $450 to settle the debt and clear it away. This was after she tried to get me to agree to bi-weekly payments if $115. I flat out told her there was no way I could pay that. And I had to make a decision immediately to set the settlement, otherwise she wouldn't be able to help me and it would proceed to court. However, it didn't take long after I got off the phone for me to start analyzing all the inconsistencies. 1st) She claimed she worked for Georgia Mediation Group, but the paperwork she sent was from Global Management. 2nd) Her email address was generic - which isn't true in legitimate businesses - and the reply address went to a completely different website. 3rd) It is not against the law to owe money. There is no legal ground for which to press criminal charges against me. 4th) The whole threat of prosecution and the rush to make either a decision or payment. I have since contacted an attorney and have canceled the debit card.

Business keeps calling several times a day. They keep calling asking to bundle services. The only thing we have is DirecTV and a landline. They also keep calling and asking random questions that elicit a yes or no response and then they'll hang up. They will sometimes ask about a computer and when I say that we don't have a computer they also hang up. They call from 513-952-8120 or 800-331-0500 or 800-288-2020.

Around mid-February I started getting emails from prospective employers offering positions and interviews based on a resume they found via CareerBuilder.com. I have never submitted a resume or signed up for services at CareerBuilder.com. This was very alarming for me because it puts my current job at risk if my employer thinks I'm looking for work elsewhere.

I already submitted a request via CareerBuilder.com to take down my profile but did not get a response and I keep getting emails from them and other prospective employers. So I went to the website to try and login and manually delete my profile. I never had a password but was able to reset the password and login.

What I found made me sick to my stomach. Someone had created a fake profile with names of my previous employers but with positions/titles and education that made my profile appeal to certain job searches. Even my location was incorrect, but was the next town over. My identity was stolen, altered to be more appealing, so this website could appear to have candidates for their prospective clients. I'm disgusted and would like them invesitgated this. Attached is an image of my profile.

We are an automotive repair and tire store.

A customer came in saying that someone called him at 8:45pm it was a recorded call saying that our company offered extended warranties for cars. His caller ID said it was our number. Our customer has been with us for 20 years so he knew something was wrong so he hung up.

We do not offer this nor have we ever. This is a scam and they are targeting our customers using our name and address.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I called to report fishy activity on my Yahoo email account. I called the provided number (18008131316) and was told the representative would be unable to assist me with my "technical" problem. He said he could refer me to their technical support, but it would cost me $149.00. That's when I knew something was off.

By then, I had already provided my email, date of birth, but refused to provide my phone number, although they may have it anyways from me calling.

I want to ensure my information has not been compromised. I'm receiving numerous calls from unknown numbers about purchasing a new credit card and other bogus offers.

The representative sounded Indian leading me to believe this was perhaps an operation overseas.

I was contact by someone via text for a work from home job. I did an interview on gmail hangouts and was told I got the job. They said they would send me a check to pay for the software, luckily I had someone stop me from going any further. It was a real company that they used the name of so be careful.

I don't know exactly what this scam is - but when the call is answered it gives the AT&T recognizable tones and says that your account is being suspended and then asks you to press the number "1" or "2".

I didn't do anything - I hung up and called 611 from my cell phone. The AT&T rep confirmed there were no problems with my account and they have received other notifications of this scam.

Multiple letters from "Vehicle Services Department" and "Automotive Services Department" operating under "Interstate National Dealer Services, Inc." and "AutoAssure, LLC. The letters make it seem like your car's factory warranty is about to expire and that you need to go ahead and purchase insurance coverage through them so that you are covered. However, I called Hyundai and my factory warranty does not expire until 2021. Also, Hyundai said to avoid any letters from companies or scam artists that do not list a BIN #.
