American Credit Solutions I stopped them dead in their tracks Tampa Florida
I strongly urge anyone has been ripped off to contact the Attorney General's Office in Florida and in their own State. I believe most State's Attorney General Offices have a Consumer Protection Division. Never, ever give out your social security number or bank account number over the telephone. I cannot emphasis that enough.
My husband received a yellow post card from a company called American Credit Solutions saying that he was approved for a $4,000 credit limit and that he had not yet activated his card.
Wow, he thought, maybe the card got lost in the mail. Better call right away. While on hold, I started getting a sneaking feeling that this company was going to try and sell him something. We were each on a telephone so I could hear what was being asked.
Simple questions - name, address, date of birth, do you have a valid checking account (first suspicious question). My husband gladly gave the information - name of bank, street address and telephone number.
Then he was asked for his social security number. There have been enough of warnings in newspaper articles to never give your social security number to anyone over the telephone.
I quickly spoke up and said we refused to give that information over the telephone and to send me information in the mail.
Well, that was that - they hung up. I then went online to find this American Credit Solutions. Came across a website that clearly stated in was not associated with the company from Tampa, FL. Punched in the name again with Tampa, Fl and found this site.
I again urge anyone who has lost money to contact their State's Attorney's Office and the Florida State's Attorney. Possibly even the postal service should be contacted.
