Victim Location 53579
Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

First thing the person said when I answered the phone was CAN YOU HEAR ME (and it was very loud) so I tried to turn my volume down and of course said "yes" Then the caller went on to say I won a all expense vacation to Disney for two people. I did not say YES again and hung up the phone as the MAN was talking about the vacation. One of the questions below is "did the victim lose money" well, as of right now, since this just happened I didn't lose any money but I don't know if I will in the future for saying Yes initially. I assume had I stayed on the phone longer it would have asked for my credit card/debit card information but I did not stay on the phone long enough so I have no clue if they were going to ask me for money.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received an unsolicited phone call this morning from (904) 515-0433. The voice stated that they were from the warranty department and asked "can you hear me okay?". I answered "yes", then remembered that I'd read about phone scams using this tactic so I instantly hung up. I just wanted to report this as a potential hoax incident.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

This woman called and said she was collecting a debt from a pay day loan company. I had no such debt. She first called on a 855 203-9054 number and left a voicemail and had me call her back on another number 855 204-0155. When I played along with the scam and said I didn't have my bank account information available she told me to call her back with it later. She said I owed $480 to a payday loan company and if I didn't pay they were taking me to court and it would then be $2000. So I did call back and there was no answer. About half an hour after that she called me back on a 314 779-2178 number which was located in Kirkwood, Missouri. The first calls was registered in Florida. I then knew it was for sure a scam.

Type of a scam Phishing

My wife, Ann Peterson, got a call on February 9, 2017 at 9:45am CT. Here's how the short conversation went...

Caller/Scammer: hello?

Ann: hello

Caller: hello?

Ann: yeah, I'm here

Caller: oh (friendly laughter), I'm sorry...

And then the caller went into her pitch. It was at that point (very early in the call) that Ann hung up because she realized she had said "yeah," and she remembered reading about the BBB alert of there being a new scam where callers are asking "can you hear me." This felt just like that.
