Type of a scam Credit Cards

I answered a phone call and the person on the line asked to speak to my girlfriend using her first and last name. I explained that she could not be reached at my number and asked what the phone call was regarding.

He said that she tried to make a Amazon purchase of $1000 and was concerned that it was fraudulent.

I questioned him as to why he was calling me as my phone number is not linked to her card, meanwhile knowing that my girlfriend would not make a purchase of this nature. He then proceeded to ask for the last 4 digits of my credit card for verification which I did not provide.

My concern here is that they were able to link my girlfriend using her first and last name along with my number. This is definitely a more personal approach and I’ve not received a scam call at this point that was able to provide me with any info that would tie the call to me without me providing it.

Call came in to my cell phone this AM from an adult male with a Middle Eastern accent. He asked if I was (my name). I affirmed that it was by saying "yes" and he hung up. He just tried to call back a minute ago from a number of the same prefix. I hit the send button when it rand and sat there and said nothing this time. He said nothing as well and hung up after a few seconds. Reading up on this I have now learned about this so-called "yes scam." The phone numbers are unusual – I believe this is from another country: 49138376803 and 49135725254

Not sure if this will go further with me later finding I have been scammed through bank accounts, etc.

Sounded unusual, so I contacted the person and he said I was being spoofed. This is a respected person, so I was tempted to help him out, even though it was an unusual request.

When I listened to the voicemail the speaker had a friendly voice but it sounded a little unreal. She luckily had my name wrong and then continued talking about how she was “Elaine’s daughter” in the area and they wanted to get dinner later. She then left a call back number, which was different from the caller and from a completely different state. I looked up the number online and it was associated with other scams. I am not sure what happens if you call it back, but definitely a sneakier way than just calling people had developed.

Cell phone call, caller initially said she was "having trouble with her headset" when I answered, then started to tell me I had recently visited one of their resorts and had won a prize. I have not been to any resorts so I hung up. It sounded like a real person talking.

This is a scam where the caller was trying to get me to say "yes," presumably to falsely use that statement as an authorization of a fraudulent charge. The caller kept saying, "Hello, Hello" to which I replied, "Hello," and then "yes." After I said yes, the caller (sounded like a pre-recorded voice) went on to talk about a resort I had allegedly stayed at. She said something about an offer, then I hung up. I do NOT authorize any charges based on this or any other phone call.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a text message from an unknown number. The text asked about services and asked if I accepted credit cards. I don’t offer the services that were inquired about and said as much in the response. Unfortunately I did not recognize the text as a scam so I provided referrals to other people. I did not answer the question about credit card payments.

2 days later, another small business owner told me he had a similar experience and said it was a scam. Apparently the scammer says they want to purchase services and makes an upfront payment via credit card. Then the scammer overpays and asks for a refund. The credit card in question is stolen.

Asked me if I (used my name) was the one who answered. I said yes, then I said, who is this? and they hung up. I tried to call the number back and it says it is no longer in service. I am reporting this because I am worried about the "can you hear me now scam" and that they recorded me saying yes.

I have received several phone calls from this robo call today (x4), though different numbers showed on caller ID, two unlisted, one from (210), one from (617). The lady (robot calling itself Jenny Martin) on the other end said I am calling long distance can you hear me and I said various rude things and hung up. One the last received call I said, ""My hearing aid is broken", and the robot said, "I’m sorry", and hung up.

Obviously this is a trend.

Total money lost $200

Type of a scam Other

The scam goes as follows. You park your pickup in a parking lot at a major department store. When you come out, the person that owns the car parked immediately in front of your truck just happens to show up at the same time you do and exclaims that you have parked on top of his car! You look and sure enough, your bumper is just under his. Then he proceeds to say that he would be willing to settle any damages right there. I fell for this the first time and gave the guy $200.00 although I didn’t remember his car being there when I first parked. But it happened again tonight when my wife and I were Christmas shopping. When the guy came up to tell me that I had damaged his car, my wife remembered that there was a pickup truck in front when we first parked. Obviously he had pulled his beat up car in front of my truck to the point that his front bumper was under mine. From now on I will always check to make sure what car is in front of me when I park and if necessary, even take a quick photo.

Type of a scam Employment

I answered a job ad (Part Time Organizing/Filing/Record Keeping) on Craigslist by sending my resume via Craigslist generated email address. Got a reply this morning from a name Larry Scott at [email protected] address. He described the position – that I can work remotely, that he himself travels to Quebec, Canada constantly, how I have to buy gifts for foster kids, for example. Then he requested that I re-confirm my email address, and tel no that I provided in my resume. I was suspicious and did not and will not reply. I also found out that his original ad on Craigslist has been flagged and removed already.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Getting several calls from a 208-318-5544, gives claim number. This caller has called my phone, my husbands phone and my brother-in-law’s phone, all saying I owe money from some payday loan back in 2013. I did get upset and started asking questions. Like when did this happen, what it was I owed. what I got back was a very belligerent answers like so you’re refusing to pay, garnish wages, ect. I wanted the answers to my questions so I could talk to my lawyer first before I pay anyone money. that was when they said so you’re refusing to pay and then just hangs up.

I did talk to my lawyer and he believes it is a scam. and was told to give them his number.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I have received several phone calls on my land line in the last couple of months from persons indicating they are calling about an "enforcement action executed by the US Treasury."

The callers identify themselves as "David Gray" or "Steve Martin." The caller ID simply indicates "Denver." Each has left a voice message the content of which is extremely similar. The message indicates that "ignoring this [message] will be an … attempt to avoid [an] initial appearance before a magistrate judge or a grand jury for a federal criminal offense." The callers have left these two call-back numbers: 352-561-2042 and 716-707-0608.

Both callers have a foreign accent.

I have ignored all of these phone calls and do not pick up when I see "Denver" appear as the caller ID.
