I CALLED MY BANK TO FIND OUT WHY I COULDN’T UPLOAD A SCANNED CHECK TO DEPOSIT IT, CUSTOMER SERVICE SAID THEY’D TRANSFER ME TO THEIR TECH DEPT., BUT THEIR RECORDS SHOW THEY NEVER DID THAT. I HAD SIGNED IN TO MY ACCOUNT, AND THE TECH WHO HAD AN INDIAN ACCENT AND BOILER-ROOM BACKGROUND NOISE SAID HE WOULD PUT THIS SMALL CHECK AMOUNT IN MY ACCOUNT. HE GAVE ME KEYBOARD INSTRUCTIONS AND CHAT OPENED. HE KEPT TALKING RAPIDLY AND HAD TRANSFERRED $2600 FROM MY SAVINGS TO THE CHECKING ACCOUNT THERE WHICH IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET MONEY OUT. IT WAS GOING TO BE TRANSFERRED TO MY LOCAL BANK AND HE ASKED HOW FAR AWAY IT WAS. HE OFFERED ME $100, THEN $200, THEN $300, AND I KEPT ASKING HIM ABOUT THE CHECK IMAGE WHICH WAS THE REASON I CALLED, HE IGNORED THAT. HE SAID I HAD TO GO TO MY BANK RIGHT AWAY AFTER THE MONEY HAD BEEN TRANSFERRED THERE, TAKE IT OUT, AND GO TO WALMART TO SEND A MONEYGRAM TO HIS MANAGER, DEDUCTING THE $310. I TOLD HIM IMPOSSIBLE, I HAD NO WAY TO GET OT MY BANK. HE TOLD ME TO WALK THERE, I SAID I CANNOT DO THAT. HE OFFERED TO PAY FOR ANY CAB FARE. I SAID NO, I COULDN’T GET TO WALMART ANYWAY UNTIL SATURDAY. HE HAD A FIT, HE BROKE DOWN AS IF HE WAS SOBBING AND SAID HE WOULD LOSE HIS JOB. HE HAD UNCHECKED MY FIREWALL PROTECTION, TOO. I ASKED FOR HIS PHONE NUMBER AND GOT 518-288-6730. I CLOSED DOWN MY COMPUTER HAVING GOTTEN ALL I NEEDED, CALLED THE BANK, DID THE NECESSARY CPU SCANS AND OTHER PRECAUTIONS. I LOOKED UP THE PHONE NUMBER AT "WHOCALLSME.COM" WHICH IS IN MY AREA CODE AND SEE THE LOCATION IS ALBANY NY, AND FOUND SEVERAL SCAM REPORTS. DID MORE RESEARCH, FOUND COMPANY LISTED HERE. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHY THEY ARE STILL IN BUSINESS, THEY ARE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THE BANK SWEARS THEY DID NOT TRANSFER ME, THEIR TECH DEPT IS INTERNAL. THEY ACCUSED ME OF CALLING THE 518 NUMBER, I CANNOT DO THAT BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE LONG DISTANCE ON MY LANDLINE. I’VE CALLED THE STATE POLICE, THE FBI, AND A LAWYER. I’M TOTALLY BAFFLED AS TO WHY THEY ARE IN BUSINESS.
