A week ago I recieved a phone call about an offer that they said I cant resist. The telemarketer offered me an $800 dollar voucher that I can use in any airlines of my choice plus some additiona gifts.
The telemarketer told me that I dont have to do anything because what he was offering was free and all I need to do was give him my bank routing number. THat is when I got suspicious. This is the first time a I got asked for my bank routing number; usually they asked for credit card number. When I told the guy that I can not give him my routing number because I was driving, he told me to pull over on the side of the freeway so I can give him my routing number. Now that is just outrageous.
Last night May 4th 2005 around 8:00 pm I recieved a phone call again from the same guy. He offered me the same thing again and I told him that I am not comfortable giving anybody my bank routing number.
He keep insisting that I should give him my bank routing number becuase he said and I quote "It is the safest transaction than giving my credit card number" at this point I had it with the guy but he still insist that I should give it to him. He said that if I am not comfortable giving my bank routing number, I can call his work. He gave me his address, phone number, his name and his ID# (R&R Escape, St. George Utah, Bryan Carter, 3215). Now I dont want to sound prejudice or racist but I know Bryan Carter is an american name or could even be a Caucasian name, but this guy sounded like he is from the middle east because his accent was so thick you could hardly understand what he was saying.
I hope this message will help other people in the future. Just to play it safe, if you are suspicious about a company just check it at BBB.
