I received a call from Visa Fraud Services about activity that was on my account that they believed was fradulant. They said the name of the company that showed up was Federal Help Online and it had something to with help getting grants. There was a number that showed up and it was 866-698-6743. I called it while sitting at the bank with the investigator and a girl named Valorie told me that the account had been open on December 31 of 08 and said that all of my information had been used to open it. Name, debit card info, address etc.
I had no idea who these people were from adam. I explained my situation and she said if I could send a copy of my police report to the address she provided(email@example.com) that I would be refunded all of my money back. I sent the email and got a return the next day telling me that the address was no good. I called the same phone number and spoke with a male subject that gave me another address of firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again I sent the email with attached copy of police report and again received an email saying that the address I was trying to reach was no good. I tried to call back again, and spoke with a male that sounded like he was in some huge call center and he told me I didnt have the right place and needed to check the number, that they were a customer fraud services center that only takes name information!
I have been totally scammed, what hurts the most was someone hacked into my stuff, used my info and my bank account sufferd. I am the only working to feed 5 people, because of this my bank account went negative in which caused 5 of my bills includeing my house payment to bounce.
