Does anyone know what agency I should contact and the address or telephone number for reporting telephone fraud? I just checked my voicemail on my cell phone and a man left a message saying "This is Conner Jenkins from Data Com Research. It is imperative that you call me immediately about your credit card balance. The minimum payment is going up and we might have a solution that can help reduce your debt."
Believe me, this call is not real. The telephone number he gave is (800) 210-2935. The number on my cell phone shows as (231) 732-2413. Interesting - I just googled this number and this is what I got:
I went onto the FBI web site and there is a link for Internet Crime, but not this type of scam. I report the fraudulent emails I get once in a while, especially the ones that say my Chase or Citi card is frozen and I need to call or email my social security number and account number, but I doubt if much can be done, although I hope that if enough people complain quickly (before the email or number is changed) eventually some of these maggots will be arrested and prosecuted.
