Type of a scam Advance Fee Loan

A few days ago I did I search for a loan. Today 5/3/17 I received a text message saying that I was approved for a $ 7000 loan and to contact a Alex White at 347-427-8395 (a NY number) I called and a person answered saying this is Alex( he had a Creole accent) he asked my name only and I told him. Just with my name he said I had been approved for a loan in the amount of $7000. He then told be he was calling from a accredited bank and that before he could transfer the money to my bank account I had to prove that I had $100 in expendable cash and the only way I could prove that I had the money was to buy a gift card for $100 and give him the info off the card. He also said when we hang up he would send a text telling Which card to buy. I received a text message asking me to buy a I tunes gift card and when I purchased it to call him. I thought this was a scam instantly and called the and they asked me to post this complaint

This is a possible Scam from and Orlando Area Code. The caller asked if we could hear them, followed by saying I heard there is someone in your family that is hard of hearing? We said "No" to the second question, but don't remember our first response because it happened so quickly. The caller immediately hung up after we said NO.

I have been getting 2-5 calls a day for the last few months. No one every answers but yesterday a live person answered right away and asked if this is Mrs. (my name) so I said yes then the call disconnected. I want to report this because it was a live person asking the question. It just happened yesterday but now I am very scared that someone will try to make me pay for something I did not order

Answered the phone, a voice says "oh, hello. This is Julie. Can you hear me?" I hung up both times I got calls from this number.

I saw previously on the news that there is a scam where they are trying to get a "yes" response in order to charge something to you, and demanding payment afterward.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I had 4 calls today from a person stating that they were calling from Microsoft saying I had multiple viruses on my computer and trying to access my information. I told them I have received calls from other companies trying to get my information and that if they call again I'd report them to the BBB. They yelled at me and hung up and called 3 other times. I called the number back and it stated the number was not a working number.

Type of a scam Phishing

On Monday, April 17th, 2017, at 1529 hours PST, I received a telephone call from (916) 209-4388; the number came up as "Unknown Name" out of Lincoln, California.

When I answer the phone, I could tell I was being transferred to a call center and the representative answered the phone had a British or Indian accent. The representative said "Mr. ***" (my last name is actually ***); I responded "Yes" and the phone line immediately disconnected.

I attempted to call the telephone number back and an automated message said the phone number was not in service.

I believe this was a con or scam designed to record my voice and me saying "yes" for the purpose of fraudulent activity or identity theft.

I've received multiple calls since April 13, 2017, from the 800 DirectTV number. When I finally was able to answer, the person asked me if my name was John. Instead of saying "yes," I asked him (because the number was DirectTV's) if he needed some survey info from a recent installation we had had done. He said he was LexMark (or something like that) and was calling from the hospital. I repeated his info back to him because it was so confusing. Then he hung up. That's when I realized it was probably a scam. I hope my family's accounts are okay.
