Recorded message - this is the social security administration and you are being notified that we have detected suspicious activity on your social security number. Please press one for more information. I pressed one, and immediately the person (who had a heavy Indian Accent) as for my personal information. I told them if this was the social security office calling me, they would know my name address and social security number. I told the caller I would report them to the ScamPulse.com. The caller hung up.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

Yesterday, I received a voice mail from the Social Security Administration advising me that my identity had been used in Texas and to call 443-281-3962.

I returned the call and spoke to a man with an Indian accent. He told me he was with the Social Security Administration and that my identity had been used in Texas. A car and a house were registered to my name that were related to drug related crimes. I verified the last four digits of my social security number for him.

He transferred my call to Officer Hayden Smith of the DEA. He gave me his badge number. He said the call was being recorded. There is an open investigation on me and he was asking for my cooperation. If I didn’t cooperate a warrant would be issued for my arrest and the crime would be made public.

He convinced me that if I hung up for than one minute a warrant would be issued for my arrest. I gave him my social security number. He said my bank account would be frozen and in order to switch the funds out of my account into a safety account, I would have to buy Target gift cards which the police would turn into the US Treasury who would put the money into a safety account.

He told me to buy Target gift cards in the same amount as my bank account balance. He told me to go to my bank, Bank of America. He told me not to talk to the teller. He told me if the teller asked any questions, to say it was personal. I asked the teller how much I could withdraw, she said anything under $10,000. I withdrew $4,000, because I had $5,000 in my checking account.

I was on the phone with the scammer when I withdrew the money. He then asked me where my bank was, and then looked up directions to the nearest Target store and directed me to go there. When I took the cards to the clerk, she asked why I was purchasing so many cards. The scammer told me to tell her they were for work. Then he told me to return to my car.

Back at the car, he asked me for the security numbers off the back of the cards, which I gave him. Then he told me to transfer money from my savings account to my checking account and go back to the bank and withdraw more money.

Then he sent me to a second Target store, and use my debit card to purchase more Target cards. I bought $4,750 worth of cards. I returned to the car and gave him the security numbers off the back of the cards.

Then he gave me directions to a third Target store. I tried to use my debit card to purchase another $4750 in gift cards. But I received an alert from Bank of America which indicated the transaction was declined due to suspicious activity. I told him the transaction was declined. He told me to go to Bank of America and withdraw $10,000.

I went to Bank of America. I asked to withdraw $10,000. The clerk said he would need the manager’s authorization. The manager sent a verification to my phone, which I showed him and he authorized the withdrawal. He did not ask why I needed the money. I took the cash to my car. Then he gave me directions to a fourth Target store. I tried to buy the gift cards, but the clerk said they wouldn’t sell more than $300 worth of cards to me. I left the store.

I returned to the car and the scammer directed me to a fifth Target store. At this Target store I went to the Customer Service desk and asked if I could buy $10,000 worth of Target gift cards. They asked why I wanted them and I said a for a business event. They sold me 11 cards for $10,000.

I returned to my car and began reading eh security numbers from the back of the cards. After the eight card, I looked on my phone for “fake call scammers” and fond an FTC warning describing this call. I knew then I was scammed. I said to the scammer, “You’re scamming me. I’m hanging up”. He said “You don’t want to do that, this is for the police”. I hung up.

I had been on the phone with the scammer for four hours. I had called in to work saying I had to take care of some personal business.

I went back into Target. The clerk said most of the cards had been cashed out. They returned $950 to me. I asked if they could research who got the money from the cards, and they said no.

I lost $28,000.00.

I reported the loss to:

• Bank of America

• Target Fraud Department, report number 54490882

• Local police department – they declined to take a report, they told me to contact the IL Attorney General’s office

• Trans Union

• Better Business Bureau Scam Tracker
