I was called on Dec 23 about an offer for a $5000 VISA or Mastercard at 0% interest. It would cost me $369 and I would receive the card in 3 weeks. They sounded very official, asking me if I had any questions. Telling me to hold for a verification number. They had even gave me their names. Which doesn't really matter what name they used. They take so much of your personal information. They have probably used my name when running one of these scams. I never received a package and I'm still waiting for my refund. They say 30 business days which is bull. These people are parasites and need to be stopped.
They told me if I had any questions, or if the funds weren't available 4 days before withdrawl to call this number, 1-866-426-3170. Everytime I called that number I would get a message saying all circuits were busy. I checked my caller ID and it was a local number 904-223-2263. When I called that number it was disconnected. That's when the red flags went up.
I began researching them. I found a site were these people were pretending to be at least 20-40 different legitiment companies. I went to my bank and ask for the cancelled check. Stamped on the back was "FOR DEPOSIT ONLY INTEGRATED CHECK TECHNOLOGIES" below that is stamped "RETURNS PROCESSED THRU NATIONAL CITY BANK >041000124>041000124<<" there is also in smaller print an account number for US Bank in St Paul, MN.
I found out that INTEGRATED CHECK TECHNOLOGIES is a place that insures that their checks get processed. They may not know that this company is scamming people. And the Processed thru Cleveland, Ohio is a company that processes checks to ensure that if a check has Non Sufficient Funds the depositor won't be hit with bank fees. I doubt if they know that they are processing scammers checks either. There is a wealth of information on the back of that cancelled check.
Now they are mailing out post cards identifing you as a possible quailifier for a government grant of at least $5000.00. When you call the number 1-866-831-0252 you get there message to hold on. After they get all your information they get your phone number. They say they are checking to see if you qualify. Then they call you back saying that you qualified for at least $5000.00 it could be more. For a fee of $299 they will send your information to the government. The card has the Company name Liberty First Financial at 1117 Desert Lane, Las Vegas, NV 89102. My daughter told me she's received two.
I know because I called the next day with a question and got a number from them and it was this number 1-866-289-5970. CCR answered. That's when I was cancelled my bank account and I reported them to FTC and consumer affairs.
I don't know how people got the address in Champlian, NY. While reading where people got there money in 2 days. He said he did a reverse search on the address and it came up as Canadian Courier Service. When I did the reverse search they showed up as Selwel & Company Limited. with a phone number of 518-298-4522. I found the business name listed under a long line of business names in Quebec.
I own some detective software. I intend on doing more research on these people. If I don't get my money back soon they are going to wish they never heard of me.
I wonder if Uncle Sam is getting his share of our money??????
