I need help guys. The telephone companies can't or won't help me. I recieved an email this weekend claiming to be from Ebay. However this is a different scam than the normal Ebay scams. This one said my account has been closed due to fraudulent activity and I need to send my drivers license , credit card , bank statement, and utility bill to a "US fax number ". The number is 323-446-7072. I do a white pages reverse phone search and it comes up as Allegiance Telecom landline in California. I called Allegiance and they claim not to have that number in their database. I called the number and it said to leave a message press 1 or to fax press 2, so the number does exist. I called the Operator and 411 and neither were any help. The gall some people have !!! I know if the telephone companies can't help me then brightest minds in communications here at this website can. Let's get these people !

I get these emails all the time, most are from banks that I have no dealings with. Just delete it or forward it to Ebay's fraud department.

So you didn't find this page?

As long as you didn't actually fax them anything, just leave it alone.

I get that stuff all the time myself. Just forward the entire message to "[email protected]" with the full headers, etc. attached. Let them track this down. Just remember, they will NEVER contact you except through alerts within your own e-bay home page. I hate to think of the many people who do fall for these scams. It's probably well into the tens of thousands.

I also get a lot of the following, got this one on Friday...

This is only a part of the email...

With my position as the manager,I traded with the money in the Ghana Stock Market and made a profit
of an amount Seven Million, Eight Hundred & Fifty Thousand US Dollars ($7.850,000.00) . I
deposited this profit in an Escrow call account and I did not declare this fact to my board of directors. I drew up a draft that made the money seem to be held in Trust by my Bank pending the notification of a referree and a beneficiary.

I contacted you, to stand as beneficiary of this Account because as a member of the Adminstrative Board of this Bank, I cannot be associated with this money. I can transfer this money to your Account following the due process regarding international Transfers of this kind. What i ask of you is that can I rely on your trust ? Can you hold this money for me till I arrive in your Country ??

Yes I did send this to [email protected] , the only reason I am aggrivated about this is because they actually left a phone number. That is as arrogant as it gets. I get these all the time and forward it ,but this one was so unique that it really set me off. Anyway, I thought you guys would have an idea to find the identity of these people. If nothing else, everyone should fax them numerous pages of black paper to kill their ink lol.

A good point of reference is www.fbi.gov
They can investigate and they provide links to specific sites they work with.

I do that with Spam faxes, but I only use 2 pages, mark a line down the middle of each page, tape 1 page to the other(end to end), start the fax & then tape the other 2 ends together. It ran in a loop most of the night.

The last one I did this to actually had the b*lls to call me the next day to give me sh*t for wasting HIS paper, ink and tel line. Yeah right....
