I was scammed on phone

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I received an automated phone call saying it was a final notice from the irs and for more information to call the number. I called this morning and was told by a man with a heavy Indian accent that I owed the irs over $3000 for the years of 2009 - 2014 and that there was a lawsuit against me and a warrant for my arrest. I told him that I hadn't work during that time and he was still trying to get me to pay. I called the real irs and found out that I did not owe anything and that it was a scam. Please let people know about this and let them know that if they get a call from the number I provided, don't answer. Thank you.

I received a phone call asking to speak to me. I asked who it was she told me "Danika Anderson" I asked what the call was regarding she told me she could only talk to the name on file but would not say what company she was calling from. She attempted to verify information she had my complete address and the last 4 of my ssn and wanted me to verify. I explained I was uncomfortable confirming that information over the phone and she advised well then I can not move forward with this call and disconnected. I returned the call from a blocked number to only receive a voicemail for Danika Anderson no company name.

I received a letter in the mail under the guise of The Department of the Treasury/ publication 4681. Consumer file #DOT- CD2115613704. Stating to call 1-877-301-7478 for debt relief. I strongly feel this is a scam. They have my social security # as well as all my banking information.

  • Monetary Loss: $150
I've been scammed by a person named Paul C. And he was selling an iPhone 6 plus on the app called "Wallapop" claiming he would ship the phone and it would arrive within 1 to 2 business days, surprisingly it still hasn't arrived. Also the money order was under the name of Dontez Baker. A person from Detroit Michigan. I would like to warn everyone stay away from this person. $150.00 down the drain.

  • Monetary Loss: $54.63
I ordered my items back in December, today I received it by my surprise it was shipped from china. My items were broken not original, the containers were made out of cheap plastic, fake names were marked on the lipsticks. Eyeliners were supposed to be waterproof, they are a fake cheap off black charcoal when you try to put it on you have to go over it several times then it cracks. The foundation is not even the color I asked for. All the boxes the lipsticks came in have the same color and label. I am so upset I feel like I was rob and lied to! Somebody please help close this fake website asap!
