Type of a scam Phishing

Phone call was received at work place. February14,2019 around 3:20 pm. Young male voice asked if I was specific name and last name, unfortunately ,without a thought, I said yes. Before I could ask who was calling , the call was ended with hangup.I suspect my answer was recorded and may be used to commit fraud elsewhere. Because this is an extension business phone in a large institution, I am obliged to answer and the caller identity is not indicated on my extension.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

The scammer (had an Indian accent) said he was calling from Medicare and asked me to confirm the name and address they gave me were accurate (they were). Then they said they would hold the line while I retrieved my new Medicare card so that I could confirm my Medicare number. At that point I was confident it was fraudulent call and later confirmed online that Medicare does not call insureds; all communications are written. When I asked him to send me the request in writing, he promptly hung up.

Type of a scam Tech Support

This has been an ongoing situation over a period of approximately 3 years. The timeline may not be exact, but the facts are pretty much what happened. The best I recall, approximately I received a pop up on my desktop telling me to call because my computer had a virus. When I called,they showed me on my computer, the problems they had found, and they could fix them if I purchased a plan for $250+. I said no. Because I was continuing to have problems with my computer, the next time I was contacted, l bought the package. The technician signed on to my cumpter and “fixed” it. Everything was okay (I thought). In November of 2017, I purchased a laptop at Wal Mart on Black Friday. I did not use it for 2 months. The VERY first time I used it, I got the same pop up message. Again I called (thinking my desktop was fine). The lady who called started by stating she could show my laptop was not working properly. I’m usually a pretty good judge of character, and this time as the lady talked, the first incident came to my mind, and I began to question her. Since she had not yet mentioned the cost for services, I asked what the cost was, she said 400.00 (to the best of my recollection). At that point, I told her I could not afford it. She said she would talk to her supervisor. She disregarded me continuing to tell her no. When I realized what was happening (she had gained remote access to my computer), I began jerking my cursor. She continued telling me to stop. I hung up my phone, but she apparently was able to gain remote acc to my laptop.

I have tried to find someone to work on my computers, but I cannot afford to pay very much.

Don’t know if this is related, but I have received at least 50 calls stating that I am due a refund because the company could not perform the services promised. The first time they called, they asked for my bank information. I told them no. Also, if they had taken the money out, they should be able to put it back in. The calls boarder on harassment.

Now I am getting emails that appear to be dangerous. I get messages when I am signing off that say someone else is on my computer, as well as emails stating that someone has signed onto my computer.

I do not know what to do at this point.

Type of a scam Phishing

Name of Business: *** ***   C/O informtion removal ; Address 364 2nd St #4 Encinitas, ca 92024.

Complaint: On 2.13.2019 I queried this website ***  and wanted to see if my personal information was posted online at their website. Because I felt that the information was inaccurate I wanted this information deleted. I tried contacting them by an internal email with no reply. According to their privacy policy or opt out they require you submit a written request along with a $20.00

administrative fee. I believe this could be a scam or illegal.

I mentioned to them that before I would proceed that I would contact the Attorney General of CA to verify if this was legitimate.

Thank you for letting me bring this to your attention..

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a postal card in the mail, which seemed like it was something relating to the city and my mortgage and it was time sensitive. I called to see if there was any action to take and it was not what I expected. A recording answered saying thank you for reaching out and that they purchased homes and someone would reach out. After that I kept receiving calls / voicemails and then started to get text mesaages about purchasing homes and how they were sorry they missed me. I blocked the number. I later then get another message stating “you can block me all you want but dont [censored] with me”. Then I blocked that number and then a text from another number followed and then said “now answer me- NOW”. I blocked that number too and I took a picture- as I am now a but freaked out and annoyed. I received another call this morning.

Type of a scam Romance

I met this man on After a few messages, he asked if we could talk by a different means. I gave him my phone number and we began texting. He told me that he owned a generator company in Jacksonville, NC and give me the website. We texted for about two weeks, when he sent me a text saying that there had been a tragedy at one of his job sites. He sent me a link to the bogus article from Dubai. This made me suspicious and I went on the regular news sights for that region, which showed no information on an explosion. He was very attentive and promising me a future together......rather early in the relationship, when this happened. He said he would need me after such a terrible tragedy. I didn't give him a chance to ask for money, but started looking into his website and found that there was a generator company at that address, but it was not Excellent Generators. It was Powerhouse and they didn't know anything about him. He told me his name was Scott Douglas Woolley. A google search did not find anyone by that name here in Newport or Jacksonville, NC. Here is the website he sent me for the supposed explosion......

I hope you will use this information to take down his website and see that he doesn't get to scam anyone.

Type of a scam Employment

Apparently I signed up to be a secret shopper, they had all my info. Got a text on 2/4/19 confirming my interest. I did not respond. Got a USPS envelope with a letter and a personal money order for $995.00 on 2/6/19. On 2/7/19, they emailed me confirming receipt of the package. I have not responded to them at all. Letter states to buy something for $45, report on it and keep that for myself. Then it says keep $250 of money for my commission and purchase $700 worth of *** giftcards. And of course, scratch the backs off and send a picture of all of the backs and then report back again. The letter is much more detailed, this is a quick overview of it. I have not done anything with any of it, except to report it to the FTC and BBB, as I knew it was a scam. I did call the credit union to verify funds on the personal money order, just today for fun, and it came back rejected, stating that someone has already tried to cash the check on 1/7/19. Attached are copies of everything I received. Call with questions.
