KB said: called with my address and name saying I am getting a 5600 tax refund from the gov. what am I STUPID? I havent even paid 5600 worth of taxes since I have been in the work force. claims to be with the US gov and wants to verify address then asks for your CC# to deposit the funds. Definite scam...the dude has a hardcore accent and when i didnt giv emy CC# he hung up, I called back and he answered "hello" then when he realized he said "is this <my name>, i am <forgot his "name"> with us gov" I told him not to call my number anymore, then he hung up in my face, I am calling my local fruad dept.
KB said: I just got a new home phone a few weeks ago (gave up on stupid cable phone) Apparently the person who had this number before never paid a bill in their lives, judging by the amount of debt collectors and attorney's offices that call me on this number. This number is particularily annoying because it is a recording, that doesn't ask for a person, but a number (perhaps a case number??) I have used the opt-out feature several times without success, and they call 2-3 times a day. The Caller ID reads 'Law office of s" but without the full name i can't really find the actual owner and ask them to stop calling /force them to stop calling through litigation. My brother works for the sheriff's office and i am ging to try pursuing something through them, but without knowing who it is, it may be hard to file a complaint. ANy suggestions? SHouldn't there be a law tat says phone companies should wait for some period before reassigning a number (or at least some measure to notify people that it is a new person?) If COngress wants my vote, then do something about anoying debt collectors that go seemingly unregulated in their harassment of innocent parties.
KB said: I just got off the phone with t-mobile. They basically told me that I had twelve txt messages and that I was charged for all of them - a total of $3.21. The first customer service woman was condenscending and rude (which is something I am finding from the t-mobile personnel recently) and told me that she could not take the charges off. Nor would she tell me what the number was that was sending the txts...it was 'against the law' to do so.
I called back after going through my cell phone and finding zero, zip, nada messages on it. The second customer service agent was a lot nicer and removed the charges.
I found out on line what the number was that had 'sent' the messages and came to this forum.
Aggravation!!! I do hope someone contacts Jesse and asks for his help.
I have taken the precaution of blocking all txts, all emails and all i.m's.
