They also mention that the numbers will be released to telemarketing companies and “you will start to receive sales calls that you will be charged for!” How does the scam work?

  6. DONT ANSWER 810-928-2440; They never left a message, called twice in one day and finally answered. It is a foreigner hardly able to speak English and was saying that I was due to receive $7,000 from the Governments Grant department. I had received a similar call months ago where they asked me for personal information. However I would only give my email and they hung up on me. Today, I said the same; I would not give any information but for him to email the information. I gave him the email and asked if that was OK. He literally said "No" and hung up the phone! How dumb; please do not give them any information. When I call back the number is "not available". Horrible scammers, obviously!

  14. I recevided an email scam.This person from a foreign country tells me if I send money I will receive money hahahalol lol lol, I have never fallen for these things, because a compelte stranger in a foreign country has my email address. hahaha lol lol lol

  15. I got a new scam…# 408 780-4751.
    First message asks you contact them if a certain person has been contacting them or you are a victim of their scam and will be rewarded $600k.
    I ignored the scam but saved it for a few days.
    Next I got another text via the # saying …. we appreciate your assistance and you are being sent $600k via western union . There was more to both messages but I can forward them to any email or #.
    I know the #is Boston based but I’m sure its Nigerian scams. I have chatted with so many scammers its radiculous. Even one that had a cell #based a town away.
    I look for key chat proper English mistakes especially the lack of using the letters ( l, or putting combo words together like I am/I’m or putting (s)at the ends of word.. online translators don do that either. Latinos translate when trying to speak English,they use I and me a lot. But use ..I am … sometimes proper and or in wrong ways. I personally haven’t had many Latino scanners other then them being here in the states and looking for a spouse to stay and offer you deals. I understand their reasons vs deportation.I know how they converse mainly because I lived around many Latino as well they babysat my son. However these were legal ppl but lived in San Ysidro Ca and hv spoke to many that jumped the fences before they had walls. They were more scared of us then us of them. I happened to be pregnant and walked out to a huge desert area to let my Springer spanielrun and do his duty. Also very potective as well as 1coyote that walked with me occasionally and showed me what bad coyotes did to anyone. Though he did eligible things, I didn’t nark on him. Think as you will but at least he wasn’t neglectful to ppl no matter what and actually had a masters degree but refused work due to his race. Well spoken man but older then myself. But going to mix , I and me is used a lot. Anyhow just look for ppl that start their chats with …am……

  21. Hi, I’m Rob.
    In France, I regularly receive calls from 0899 numbers which, when answered by the auto-answering (network) service, leave no message. I presume that these callers want me to respond to their premium rate number, or worse. It’s a pest because I have to grab for my spec’s to see the calling number, risking losing a call which I want. I can’t yet find a way to block incoming numbers on my primitive non-web-connectable but lovely, simple Nokia N 1112 type RH-93. I see from a Google search that I’m far from being the only one in France to receive these calls, so for the info of other expats . . .
