Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
I received a call saying my confirmation number had been randomly selected to receive a free night at the Ramada Inn. I haven't booked any kind of stay at the Ramada so there's no way they could have had a confirmation number for me, but silly me I still pressed one (it says press one to hear about the offer or two to not be contacted again). When I pressed one, however, there was only music playing so I hung up. A few hours later my mom got the same call, but they used a different hotel name. She hung up before they even finished. It was an automated call both times. Both calls were from Verizon Wireless numbers. My mom called the number that called her back and it said something like "hello, we are currently assisting hello we are currently assisting (two times) other customers...." And then it said something about their hours of operation, but even though they had hours of operation in eastern time, they still used local numbers.

Type of a scam Debt Collections
I received a phone call from Georgia telephone number (404)665-2253 informing me that I have a pending civil suit and I would need to call telephone number 1-855-771-7059 and give them my case number SF16-3877. I did and I was informed by a VERY nasty woman, Kimberly Washington, that I never paid a pay day loan back from December 2012. The debt collectors name was "The Alliance Group". She stated that I owed $1,189.00 but they were willing to settle for $349.00. I had no recollection of this matter at all. Any payday loan I'd ever gotten I always paid it back. Afterall, if you don't, they constantly harass you about making a payment and this was my first time hearing about this matter after supposedly 4 years. None of this sounded right to me so I told her that I don't get paid until Friday and she said I could call and make my payment then. After I investigated a few things with my bank who didn't find any deposits for a pay day loan at all during that time in the amount I gave them, I called Kimberly Washington back who seemed even more angry at this point. She couldn't give me the exact date of the check, she couldn't tell me when I made payments, the date and the amount. She couldn't tell me anything and attempted to transfer me to her "supervisor". The phone then hung up and I called back. I told the receptionist to put her supervisor on the phone. She left me on hold for about 3 minutes so I called from my work phone and asked her what was the address of the company. She told me Atlanta, GA. I said, what is the address? That's a city and state! She told me she had to ask her supervisor for the address and quickly put me on hold. I usually don't fall for these types of things but they had all of my information. Address, My Employers Name, My telephone number, social security number and even my bank account information! Which is really scary to me! I just wanted to make others aware that this is happening. Please don't make any type of payments to anyone over the phone. Request something in writing. She stated if I didn't make a payment they would send out a summons. Tell them to send it! Please be careful and aware of these types of scams.
