Total money lost $448
Type of a scam Online Purchase

Received an account Alert from Sprint that my address or E-mail address had been changed. Contacted Sprint on line and discovered my original plan was changed and five additional phone lines had been added. Contacted Sprint by phone and reported the fraud of services. Each I phone was also given additional insurance charges, taxes and fees. The five phones have been recording phone calls and charges. My total new monthly bill for November was 448.33 dollars and not 47 dollars. My first contact with Sprint's Fraud division was on November 8, 2017.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

I just had a phone call asking me "Is this Bob". I replied yes and they said "Thanks, I am just confirming your phone number " and hung up. Something doesn't sound right. I googled scams and it appears that all they want is me to say "yes" and then use that recording to have phoney invoices sent to me.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

Stated the interest rate on my credit card is going to expire unless I provide financial and personal information.

I asked which credit card company he was representing. He responded “I’m calling about your existing credit card”. I asked again and he hung up the phone.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I thought it was a family or friend calling seeing the area code was local. They went on blabbing about my credit card interest rates in lowering them. I told them I have no credit cards in my name and click they hung up. I registured my cell phone to the government national do not call list.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Received multiple calls from 509-740-0308, ID showed "Out of Area". The message left was a computerized recording advising the reason for the call is because the IRS is filing a lawsuit against us and to call back the same # in the caller ID. Did not call back. Looked up # and other people have reported it as a scam. We blocked the number.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

Caller stated he could lower credit card interest rates. I asked what credit card company. He just repeated a list. Some of which I do not have accounts with. Then I asked for the last 4 digits of the account number. That is when he said about 5 totally unrecognizable words and then hung up on me.

Type of a scam Employment

Called by this number three times very early in the morning. When answered they said that they saw that I was looking for a job. Then asked what kind of job was I looking for. I said I'm not lookin Ng for a job and they hung up.

It was a pre recorded woman's voice. It sounded like a real person on the line.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I no longer use the word "Yes" when being asked who I am because of a scam I saw in the news. So months ago these people would call me asking me, "Am I speaking to Mr. Loreto Martinez?" and I would reply, "How can I help you?". They were not satisfied with that answer and persisted in trying to make me say the word "Yes". I hung up on them when asked a 3rd time. After a few days of daily calls (at times twice a day) I just began to hang up on them when the caller I.D. showed their number. Nevertheless, they have continued to call my landline on a daily basis. Tonight was the last straw as they called very late. I do not know who they are or what they want. They just seem to want me to say the word "Yes". To record and use for purchases?

P.S. In the "Type of Scam" section there was no "Unknown" option so the "Debt Collections" selection is false.

Type of a scam Tech Support

Voicemail left on my phone 3 days in a row with no company name provided. It said something about receiving a refund for technical support because the company has been ordered to close down. The voice seemed very mechanical. It said to call the phone number immediately regarding the refund. I did not call them back. My tech support is with Best Buy/Geek Squad and I called them. They are not shutting down.

The caller wants to record you saying "yes." to their questions. When you don't respond with a "yes" they pretend they didn't hear you and repeat the question.

Re. Phone Scam From 409-497-9485

I do not answer unknown phone callers; I waited until call ended, then blocked that number. I used, an online reverse phone lookup tool, to check owner of the telephone number. The reverse phone tool identified someone named Tom near Galveston Texas at that number. The voice messages said I had two (2) pending charges against me and if I did not act to take care of these charges, my local police would arrest me.

I use a California cell phone while visiting our farm in another state.

**Please do not disclose my personal information.**

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a call on Saturday evening, Oct 28, 2017. A male caller asked me if this was "my name." Without thinking, I said "yes." He immediately responded "great" and hung up. I tried to call the number back and got a fast busy signal and then immediately the call was disconnected. Reports are that the recorded "yes" can be used to open accounts, and to try to prove they were authorized.

A man called me and stated he was having a party and bought 18 pizzas and nobody showed up. He asked me if I would help him eat the pizza's. He kept stopping and saying "Is that a yes". I told him nice try and he hung up. Other people in my area are reporting the same strange phone calls.

Caller asked if I could hear them. Then started talking about older adults and the risk of falling.

Type of a scam Other

A woman contacted me thinking she was calling back the original caller re: car warranties. I returned her call as she had left a voice mail. We were both confused as I had NOT called her and she verified my number in her phone logs. She freely gave me her name so if I proceed with any reports she could be reached.

Tonight I received a call from the number (210) 245-5921. I thought I recognized the number and that's the only reason I answered it. The caller identified me and asked me twice if I was that person. I instinctively said yes twice thinking at this point that he was a customer of mine. He then proceeded to try to get me to donate money to some charity. I told him not to call again and hung up. I've heard of a scam where the telemarketers primary goal is to get you to say yes so that they can record it and use it to get you to unknowingly purchase something. I fear I may have fallen victim to this scam. Could you please advise me what I can do to protect myself at this point? Thank you.
