Energy company National Grid trying to get me to switch energy companies. They asked to see a recent bill and get some personal information from me to to discuss potential price savings I could receive. This is just a cold call by a energy company to get you to switch. If you do switch you would probably get your old company calling you later to switch again.

I was called about a loan debt from the "Compass Bank" which was owed immediately before legal paperwork was about to be filed. They said I took out a loan in 2010 and need to hurry to Walmart to use a prepaid card to send them $1500 immediately to stop the paperwork from being completed. I spoke to my lawyer and he said this is a scam that needs to be ignored. Nothing has ever been sent to my home to address any debts and that legally needs to happen at least once in order to make a valid claim of debt ... Read More

I just got my Verizon bills and I was charged $1.99 a minute for this call. I remember making the call and was curious about what it was. I have relatives in the Dominica. Obviously it was not my relatives and now I have to get this charge reversed and the number blocked from Verizon if possible.

I used to have a negative balance with paypal, but have since cleared it up. This must be some kind of mistake or computer update problem that needs to update. I will allow the update to run it naturla course and not bother with this issue anymore. Legit call, but out of date.

A Mexican family scam. They will lie about injuries, car accidents, purchase delivery problems, or needing a ride from the airport after guilting you that you don't like helping your relatives. Elderly people may be at high risk of falling for this scam. They could be involved with kidnapping or Mexican cartels.

This is a scam. They wanted to verify a card number I no longer have. I called Wells Fargo directly myself and they told me that they hadn't made the call and that the card the other person spoke to me avout was in fact not a valid card anymore. High risk caller. Scam alert to anyone reading this. The agent told me that had no red flags on my account and nothing was wrong. Big fraud attempt here so be careful!!

This is definitely some kind of billing scam. I tried to call it back on my prepaid mobile phone, but they message told me that I didn't have enough money in my account to complete the call. Lucky I Guess for being too lazy to refill my account funds,,So I would be cautious about ever being curious about this caller.

Posted: March 1, 2015, 11:24 pm
I was called with a warning about 2 fraudulent transactions that were made using my credit card. They told me to call them back "using the number on the back of the card" to verify all the transaction information with them. Told me to have my card information ready when I called. Said they were "Citibank Fraud Services." All worked out as the fraudulent transactions have been dealt with and removed from my account.

Posted: March 1, 2015, 10:59 pm
A call and ring once con. They want to make you curious about the scam and call them back so you look guilty and will have problems reversing the charges with your phone company. Big scam from the island regions. They will try to keep you holding as long as they can for the biggest bill possible.

Posted: March 1, 2015, 4:38 pm
Scumbags saying I owe $1500 and will charge me $2500 if i waste their time in court fighting it. Sounds like a perfect excuse to scare people into paying. I call this extortion in my books. All my debts are paid up so they can do whatever they want. I don't believe anything will happen and it's all a giant bluff.

Posted: March 1, 2015, 3:48 am
some advice for anyone reading this. If anyone claims to be from a government department with threats of arrest or litigation of you don't send money immediately, then this is a scam. The government does not make calls like this whatsoever. If the government is going to arrest you then they will just show up unannoucned to do so. And they don't do that over debts. Debtors prisons were outlawed ages ago. This is some kind of scammer from India I am sure.

Automated message says that homes in the usa are broken into every 8 seconds. Sounds scary. I better install a stupid sign on my lawn right away so I can be safe. The sign will save me, not the security system. Total rip off. Wasting people's time and money on junk.

Posted: March 1, 2015, 3:31 am
Claims to be calling from "Merchant Choice" about updates that need to be made to the credit card processing terminals for security purposes. Told me they needed all my account information for the merchant account. Must think I am a complete idiot because this is ridiculously over the top to think I will just give that information out to a stranger from a company I haven't even heard of.

These people tricked me out of $350 for a fee on a pre-paid loan. I feel really stupid now. The loan was supposed to be for an unsecured loan of $1000. They got me to use a prepaid money transfer card and now they say due to my bad credit I have to send more money and then wait longer for the taxes and fixes to pass. A complete joke. Totally arrogant thieves.

Claimed to be "American Credit Assistance." calling to verify personal information, I gave them prepaid credit card giftcard number. They switched me around to a couple different people and one was called a "financial advisor." Eventually I hung up as I can't bothered,

However, a week later I got a letter in the mail from another bank requesting personal information from me like SSN for a credit card. My credit report shows 3 credit card applications in my name on the day of the first call. Definitely some kind of criminal activity going on here.

These people called me at my job and said that I had a serious legal matter to attend to and that I could be subjected to a lawsuit if I didn't respond immediately. This type of call is illegal no matter the cause. You can't call people at their jobs and embarrass them in front of their employers or co-workers with claims of debt or lawsuits. It's dangerous to people's livelihoods and reputations. They have laws against this type of harassment and blackmail.

A life insurance consultant cold calling to sell you insurance. They will try to ask you a number of qualification questions to see if you are eligible for buying a policy.

I got a threat of a lawsuit from a very heavily accented man. Was shocked someone could be this arrogant and brave in making a call like this.

I am getting fake IRS threats on this line. They sound forigen with bad english. They told me I would be arrested by government agents if I didn't immediatelyc all them back and begin the payment plan for the debts and fines I owe. Told me I could get more fines and serious jail time if I didn't comply. Very unprofessional sounding. Real gov agents don't act like this in my experience. Fraud risk.

This is the BBB or Better Business Bureau calling about membership. It's a real number for the organization so there is no fraud worries, but some people may still find the call annoying. They want $400 to get listed on their website.

Can't confirm that last part.

This doesn't happen with the IRS. They don't threaten arrest with phone calls like this. They would send letters and often times take you to court if needed.

Scumbag debt collection attempt. The statute of limitations has most likely run out ont he debt if it's actually legit and these bottom feeders are hoping to get any reaction out of you to make you pay the debt anyway. If you've never gotten an official letter documenting the debt in detail then you are probably off the hook and just be targeted the scumbags hoping to make an easy buck. They buy other businesses debts for next to nothing and even a fraction of the debts making payments is huge profit for them.
