I received an email that read my purchase/order was being fulfilled. It came to $327. It listed a number that I could call if I didn’t authorize the purchase. I called and they pretended to be PayPal and said all I had to do to “secure” my personal information was to connect to their server. I asked pointedly if she was a PayPal employee and she said yes. I told her I believed this was a scam and hung up.

8-14-23 2:55PM  Hello ******? I'm so glad I got you!  Appeared to know me!  Friendly like local person. I had fallen asleep in recliner, phone rang, and half asleep I answered without checking the number & caller first. The person first said, ****** I am so glad I was able to reach you! This is ******? I ans. Yes. Then noise, and she asked, Are you still there? I answered, YES, breath pause, I'm still there! Somewhat irritated. There was a short pause, and then a click. I figured at once my name and a yes were recorded. Plus they have my landline phone number. They can easily get address. I was on alert as support person for families of two individuals with terminal cancer--one in hospital on feeding tube. I didn't think this time---asleep, and just grabbed the phone. (At the time, I wondered if it might be a hospital trying to reach me for my friend. ) I am now concerned that they have a recording of "my voice" & a "yes." Esp. with AI they can use that to be able to make up conversation that sounds like me, or they can use my name and a yes to claim I agreed to or ordered something. I NEVER slip. BUT--this time I was tired and worried over my two friends and their families. Both are in and out of hospital & in extreme pain. Both on chemo and not handling it. I just plain didn't think when I answered the phone. I normally never answer a number I do not know. I let unknown callers go to the answer. This time, I was waiting to hear about one of the two friends & hopefully know the family member was handling things alone at the hospital. I was worn out, fell asleep, and just grabbed the phone while half-asleep, answering it before checking to see who was calling or from what number. Thank you!

Callers use robocall to change numbers each time they call.

They always use a # tied to your local area code and when you pick up there is an automated recording stating it is "Verizon" and to call regarding your account.

The # they ask you to call is 1.800.753.8644.

They are calling my work phone and I have called them advising to remove me but have not provided any of my information since it is a scam. I have confirmed with Verizon this is not a person from them calling.

I received a phone call and been asked if f I speak English and I said yes and they pronounce my name wrong and I corrected, so I am afraid they use that to impersonate me

I receive a bogus phone call ring on my iPhone from time to time. It goes to my voice mail. The voice mail contains one word in the transcription.

I answered my WORK PHONE, where i receive multiple unknown numbers that are normally customer. A man with an Indian accent asked if he was speaking to me (first and last name) which is common due to there being multiple people in my company with my name. I said yes, how can i help you. He immediately hung up. I tried to call back but it goes to a dial tone.

The first text said " (My Name," Just want you to know there is time to still enroll in potential forgiveness help for past college cost. Call me back.

Then 2 days later the text from a different phone # says ("My Name", Call me back, I still have time to help you with forgiveness programs for past college cost.

- Saint Clair, MO, USA

I received a solicitation in the mail saying I was owed $100 and that I needed to contact this number to speak with them. When I called, I spoke to a lady who had some of my information but wanted me to give my bank account information to proceed further because they needed to verify my information and also pay I would have to pay around a $4 fee at some point (not necessarily today) to receive the card. When I told her I do not give out my banking information, she was saying I could give her the information from a green dot card or a Wal-mart pre paid card. She was very assertive about this. I did not have one. I believe she was wanting to get information from me or get me to pay money for something I would have never seen. She got so aggressive about the green dot card, I had to hang up on her. The lady I spoke to did have an accent.

Return call, asked me how am doing, I said okay, afterward they hung up, I tried couple of times to call back, unable to connect
