Type of a scam Employment

Below is the email i recd from Sharon McBroom..it initially came through my iPhone with an email to return to sender if i was interested in caring for "her mother." I am an RN and do legitimate care taking through Care.com and Carelinx. I received a previous note at one time from a daughter asking me to purchase eqpt for their loved one coming from a foreign area and that soon I'd be employed by them. I did not accept that position, nor do i intend on helping this alleged attempt to get me to agree to their conditions. I have been a victim of id theft in previous yrs and it definitely sounds scandalous to me. Hope I'm incorrect, but can you check into this please for me.

The telephone # affiliated with this potential scam is 1-844-202-4463 and here is their response to my inquiry about employment. Thanks for your time. *** *** RN

They called and asked if I could hear them, I've received 3 of these phone calls the past few months, always a lady's voice. My husband also got the same call today. I called the number back and hit the button to be removed from their list.

Cell phone call, caller initially said she was "having trouble with her headset" when I answered, then started to tell me I had recently visited one of their resorts and had won a prize. I have not been to any resorts so I hung up. It sounded like a real person talking.

This is a scam where the caller was trying to get me to say "yes," presumably to falsely use that statement as an authorization of a fraudulent charge. The caller kept saying, "Hello, Hello" to which I replied, "Hello," and then "yes." After I said yes, the caller (sounded like a pre-recorded voice) went on to talk about a resort I had allegedly stayed at. She said something about an offer, then I hung up. I do NOT authorize any charges based on this or any other phone call.

Victim Location 85712
Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a text message from an unknown number. The text asked about services and asked if I accepted credit cards. I don't offer the services that were inquired about and said as much in the response. Unfortunately I did not recognize the text as a scam so I provided referrals to other people. I did not answer the question about credit card payments.

2 days later, another small business owner told me he had a similar experience and said it was a scam. Apparently the scammer says they want to purchase services and makes an upfront payment via credit card. Then the scammer overpays and asks for a refund. The credit card in question is stolen.

Asked me if I (used my name) was the one who answered. I said yes, then I said, who is this? and they hung up. I tried to call the number back and it says it is no longer in service. I am reporting this because I am worried about the "can you hear me now scam" and that they recorded me saying yes.

I have received several phone calls from this robo call today (x4), though different numbers showed on caller ID, two unlisted, one from (210), one from (617). The lady (robot calling itself Jenny Martin) on the other end said I am calling long distance can you hear me and I said various rude things and hung up. One the last received call I said, ""My hearing aid is broken", and the robot said, "I'm sorry", and hung up.

Obviously this is a trend.

Total money lost $200
Type of a scam Other

The scam goes as follows. You park your pickup in a parking lot at a major department store. When you come out, the person that owns the car parked immediately in front of your truck just happens to show up at the same time you do and exclaims that you have parked on top of his car! You look and sure enough, your bumper is just under his. Then he proceeds to say that he would be willing to settle any damages right there. I fell for this the first time and gave the guy $200.00 although I didn't remember his car being there when I first parked. But it happened again tonight when my wife and I were Christmas shopping. When the guy came up to tell me that I had damaged his car, my wife remembered that there was a pickup truck in front when we first parked. Obviously he had pulled his beat up car in front of my truck to the point that his front bumper was under mine. From now on I will always check to make sure what car is in front of me when I park and if necessary, even take a quick photo.

Type of a scam Employment

I answered a job ad (Part Time Organizing/Filing/Record Keeping) on Craigslist by sending my resume via Craigslist generated email address. Got a reply this morning from a name Larry Scott at [email protected] address. He described the position - that I can work remotely, that he himself travels to Quebec, Canada constantly, how I have to buy gifts for foster kids, for example. Then he requested that I re-confirm my email address, and tel no that I provided in my resume. I was suspicious and did not and will not reply. I also found out that his original ad on Craigslist has been flagged and removed already.
