Man of Peace said: Hi,
Here is a solution to these unwanted calls -
give a call to 310-448-6150 ... someone will respond - request him/her to take your phone off from their call list .... this worked for me instantly-
I am no longer getting calls from 310-448-6034
anna said: Yeah, I just was called also. This morning. Heavily accented, offered me $300 in free gas cards. Said his name was Mark Brown, ID # 111786, from the company Gold Coast opperating out of Comton California. He wanted the expiration date on my card also. Very vehement. I told him I didn't have any cards with expiration dates. He told me he would call back tomorrow, telling me to purchase a prepaid visa/mastercard/discover and only put like $5 on it for the 3.99 shipping and handling fee. I am sure he will call back, given I "accidentally" hung up on him and he called me back about 10 seconds after. Ugh... These guys really really really want our information.

kpowell said: I also received an email from someone claiming I was the benificary of a large amount of money but I didn't provide any personal information because of previous experience with a scam that caused my bank account to be closed for a fake check being deposited into it. I am now unable to open any account with any other banks until the investiagation is resolved.
Sampler said: Received email from "Capital One Bank" saying my credit card was deactivated because of repeated unauthorized access. Funny thing is...I don't have a Capital One credit card. It was a generic, poorly done, scam email (not addressed to me specifically, spelling errors, etc.)
The email contained the number 315-235-1392. I called it from a secure phone line. A computerized voice said "welcome to our 24 hour service line" and took me through the steps to reactivate my non-existent card. I played along and it asked for:
1) 16-digit credit card #
2) Month/Year of expiration
3) 3-digit security code from back of card
4) My personal PIN.
I entered 1234567891234567, 1009, 666, 9999 at those prompts and it said my card is now reactivated. Scam is so obvious it was laughable.
Dj said: I received the same computer message (that my credit union card had been accessed by a third-party), and upon hanging up and dialing again the same computer told me the number was "temporarily being used." HA.
316 is an area code for Wichita, Kansas, right?

Mrs. H. Thibault said: I keep getting calls from Moving Van Companies telling me charges to move my personal belongings from Santa Monica to Manhattan Beach. This last call came from 1-323-588-9666.
I haven't called for any moving van company to move any furniture from my home and I am not located in this area of California.
I asked the person how he got my name and number. He said a person named Bacon Ascema used my cell phone number at the Van Lines website. So, that is why I am getting all of these calls. I don't know who this person is that is using my cell number.
