On Monday, 11 April, I received a phone call that told me that since I had been paying my bills and had not declared bankruptsy that I was being 'rewarded' by being given $800 air line voucher and 3 days and 2 nights, anywhere of my choice. It would be good for a period of 5 years.
This man gave me his name but his accent was so bad he was difficult to understand. He had my name and address and phone number. It all sounded pretty good but when he started asking me for my bank number, I became suspicious. He was a fast talker and a good one. He was arguing with me about my giving him my bank account number. I finally asked to speak to his supervisor.
Another man came on the line and gave me a name that sounded reasonable. I'm sorry I did not write the names down. This new man told me that they would send me all the paperwork about the trip and all I had to pay was $1.95 and not pay that for 16 days. The first man told me that someone would come to my door with the paperwork. The two stories did not make sense.
Again, the second man tried to tell me why it would be good to give him my bank account # and then he would give me a Customer # and an ID #. He had my banks correct routing # and I guess if I hadn't heard so much about not giving your Social Sec. # out I might have given it to him. But I was wary of this call. I told the man that since I had not initiated this phone call that I was not going to give him any more information. He continued to argue with me and try to talk me into giving him the # on my check. For a man to argue with a customer over the phone make me even more suspicious.
I finally hung up on him after telling him several times that I would not give that # out. I am sorry that I did not write down the names of these two men but I was told that it was in Utah and the name was R & R Escapes. I probably will not be of much help to you. Sorry.
