Latest ripoff/scam! Read this!
I just sent this out to my co-workers here at hp this morning:
Last Wed, Thurs, and Friday I had a call/hangup from 727-712-0382. I traced the number to Quality Resources in Florida, and did a quick Google on them. They called back this morning and there was actually a human on the other end. I let them know I knew their game already, including the complaints filed with the Florida Attorney General and the BBB. I asked to speak with a supervisor, and kindly demanded my work number be removed from their database.
She told me it would take 72 hours. So I may get a couple more calls from their autodialer, then it should stop. From what I've read on the internet about this, it will stop.
This is VERY dangerous. They know the last 4 digits of my CC #, and my phone number, but they DON'T have the rest of the numbers. Their goal is to call and act like they're my credit card company, and get ME to give them the remaining numbers. Many people have fallen for this scam and get outrageous charges and big headaches.
Yes, this call came to my WORK extension. More reading for you:
There'* alot more informatoin out there if you simply Yahoo or Google the number I listed above.
