Annie said: I got a call from them today inquiring if my wife used our Amex card to make a purchase from a company in Japan. When I told them she hadn't, they transferred me to the "Card Replacement Dept." because her card was going to be deactivated and a new card would be sent overnight to us. When I got to that department they asked me a security question (my wife's maiden name). We got suspicious and said we'd call them back and asked what number to call. They told me to call the 800 number on the back of the card. I did and immediately learned that the first call was totally legit and that my wife's card had been compromised and several thousand dollars had been charged in about 6 rapid transactions this morning to the same Japanese company. I just hope Amex prevents that vendor from receiving any money, though I know I am protected andam not responsible. I just hate to see the bastards profit from crime!

Beet said: Same thing just happened to me I'm in Portland, Oregon, and this was also a Craigslist ad. 2000 Honda Accord LX Coupe fully loaded,lots of goodies, lots of photos. I never got a call it was all done by email......He also kept posting the ad and then taking it off. This guys name was David Edwards in the army shipping out to Afganistan in November.....bla bla bla. I wish they would ship his butt off to Afganistan......This particular vehicle books for close to $9000.00 and he was asking $2500.00 got the same fake PROPAY invoice from propaypayments.us The agents name is Robert Simmons in Melville, NY. I couldnt figure out for the life of me why he couldnt sell it right there at home in NY. Thats what held me off at first.
It was damn near so convincing that I almost sold my car to send the money......Thanks to God this thread was here in my search engine.....I just about sent the money, but Ive always been told if it sounds to good to be true it probably is........So I investigated it, I was gonna call PROPAY in the morning to verify if this was actually a true invoice of theirs........PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

Yup, got the call. If I don't recognize the #, I don't pick up because I'm lazy. I hate calls that are inconsequential.
Msh said: They called me this morning with their automated system. The recording asked me to call them to discuss my loan. I ck'ed and it's all up to date. But the kicker was that the automated system called me at 6:34AM!!!! I called back their toll free number but it's been busy all day long. Pathetic.
PRECIOUS ONE said: too have been receiving the same phone calls, DAY AND NIGHT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY. Noone answers when you call back, it goes to some crazy voicemail ring back tones of some bad country music. The number that keeps calling me is 352-684-1437..I have left them a message now telling them that if they call again, legal action, both the police and state attorneys office will be notified of their scam.
