Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I received a phone call from a man. He stated that I had recently purchased something that had entitled me to win a weekend getaway to Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida.

He gave me his ID number of 106 and also stated that the company had been in business for 14 years. He claimed that the business was located in Tampa, Florida.

I became suspicious immediately. He spouted off routing numbers for my bank and wanted me to tall me all kinds of information, such as where my bank office was, etc.

He wanted the account number to verify I was who I was. I advised him that I did not have that information in front of me. He said he could hold as long as necessary, "he was paid by the hour". I then told him that I did not carry that information with me to work therefore I would not be interested in anything he was promoting.

I followed up later and lo and behold when I put the company name in, this website comes up for a phone scam.

I just wanted to let people know that people do not call and ask you for your bank information at all.

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

Like I have been saying all along, more and more alerts are being sent out by banks, tv new stations as well as the internet about these crooks.

The alert below was posted recently by Members Plus Credit Union warning it's customers about Suntasia and it's umbrella companies like Distinct Advantage, Freedom Gold as well as many others.

Telephone Scam - BEWARE!

Members Plus Credit Union has become aware of a fraud scheme which has targeted some of our members. In this scheme a member is called by a marketing firm and led to believe that MPCU hired this firm. They claim that the member will receive free gifts, but that they need to confirm a bank account number. The caller will read off the bank's routing number, which is public knowledge, and ask the member to provide the account number. The account number can be used to withdraw funds from the victim's account.

The calls are usually placed from the 727 area code. In the past, this group has used the business names of Distinct Advantage, Freedom Gold, Capital Vacations, and Suntasia Marketing. Members Plus Credit Union has not hired Distinct Advantage, Suntasia Marketing or any other marketing company to call our customers. You should be very cautious of any free offer made over the telephone. Never give out confidential information such as account numbers, social security numbers or other personal information.

End of Alert.

You can see the MPCU posting for yourself by visiting their site.

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!
