The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
I received a recorded message stating that I had been pre-approved, but would lose my approval if I did not return call within 24 hours to 888-258-7775. I did not apply for any credit recently, so this cannot be legitimate. I did not return the call and do not plan to do so.
First 7183355356 calls with a pre-recorded message saying "you are pre-approved for a Free Medical Alert System, please call 888-258-7775 to get your free system." THIS IS A SCAM TRYING TO GET PERSONAL INFO FROM ELDERLY PEOPLE TO STEAL THEIR IDENTITIES. AARP has been known to sell your name, address and phone number to all kinds of unscrupulous sales lists.
This number was left on my answer machine to call back.
The original call came from 937-847-5239 W. Carrollton, OH, (Chautauqua, OH, / Miamisburg, OH)
Recording said ........"but your status will change in the next 24 hrs. to decline unless we hear from you immediately. Please call 888-258-7775 with auth code _____ & speak with your agent today. Again that number is 888-258-7775. Thank you & have a great day."
Another web site I used said the regular phone number was a personal residence.
number showed up as a local doctor with 2 numbers of his real phone number changed. Wanted me to call 888 number and use a code - I did not call, but think I will call the local doctor and let his office know.
Made me think it was a local call.....then told me my application was approved but I needed to call the 888 number to continue.
US Legal Services claiming they received an application I never completed for credit card consolidation.
