SCAM USING GREAT CALL

I received a call today from 866-421-0843.  I didn't answer, but just out of curiosity, called back.  The lady answered it was Great Call.  She asked me my account number.  I did not give.  She asked me my password and I did not give.  I asked her why she had called me.  She said I should give her the information because I called  her.  I told her to take her sorry scam call and go jump.  This is not a Great Call number and is a scam.  Just passing on to let readers know that keep trying to come up with new ones.

 

The one I like best is when the message says it is the IRS and I will be arrested in about 20 minutes.  I call this one back for the fun.   The guy with the accent tells me I must pay a fine or be arrested.  I ask him what happens if I do not.  He tells me they are on the way to arrest me.  I ask if they will have on uniforms.  He said yes.  I ask him if they can hurry that I am feeling frisky and love a man in uniform.  He hangs up.  Come to think of it he has not called me lately.

I received a call from this number as well but the phone stopped ringing after two rings.  Thank you for your comment.  It is very helpful and I entered the number under "Great Call Scam" in my phone directory.  I love the way that you handled the call--and what a good laugh it gave me!

That's one of my faves too. We never call back. As mentioned on another posting, we never answer the phone directly unless it's a number we know. We wait for someone to leave a message.

@Soosie,

 

Be careful when you call numbers back.

 

Some of these scams have off shore numbers that, if dialed, run up a per minute charge from $1.99 to exponentially higher.

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!
