I just got a call from someone claiming my dad had a debt (he's been dead 4 years) and she wanted my information so she could talk to me about it. We exchanged a few words and I hung up.
I also keep getting messages about my SS # being used for fraudulent charges near the border and unless I resolve the issue with them an arrest warrant will be issued for me, lol!
These scammers usually end up hangin up on me ....after ive had MY fun with them first😂😂😂😂
Ty for the alert.
