Victim Location 35473
Type of a scam Phishing
A received a phone call from a NYC phone number. The woman identified herself as Venmo Fraud Detection and said that they had noticed someone trying to make fraudulent charges through my Venmo account. She asked me if I received an email notifying me of this. Then she said, "We will never ask for any of your personal information, that is against our policies." All she wanted me to do was to verify a six-digit code that they were going to send to my phone. She wanted me to repeat the numbers out loud to her. I told her I didn't have time and had to hang up, but she was persistent. I hung up on her.

I'm not quite sure what Venmo is up to but there sure are plenty of scams reported here: https://www.consumeraffairs.com/finance/venmo.html
One of which I refused to be part of. I have only used my Venmo account about a dozen times and mostly for rent payments from tenants.I get a suspicious email telling me that I need to send a federal ID with a photo of myself to Venmo for verification. I tossed the email thinking it was junk mail but later realized that my Venmo account had been frozen by Venmo for real. I can not get any answers as to why it was frozen and as I read through dozens of complaints on the above linked website, I found that I was not alone. I will close my account after trying to get answers by calling them and getting no where. This is surely not right. NO ONE SHOULD EVER EMAIL PHOTO ID EVER.
