Scam

Fake student loan forgiveness scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India, often with a fake bank name showing up on Caller ID. This is a fake student loan scam by criminals phoning from India, trying to steal your credit card numbers, Social Security number, and personal information. There are hundreds of these India scams where they pretend to be fake debt collectors threatening you for debts that you do not owe, offer to lower the interest rate on a fake student loan that you do not have, offer you a fake home equity loan based on a request that you did not inquire about, consolidate all your credit cards and debts at 0% interest, or give you an unsecured $100,000 line of credit. This call begins with a pre-recorded robotic message generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam. The message says that you need to complete your application for a student loan forgiveness repayment plan that you previously contacted them about (fake!). If you respond to the call, then you get transferred to the India scammer who tells you that because of your good credit history, he can offer you lower interest rates on or a student loan repayment plan; he just needs all your credit card numbers and SSN "for verification purposes". Or the scammer says that to prove your credibility, you must first buy a prepaid gift card and give him the card number and PIN code. These scammers also pretend to be fake debt collectors, threatening you for fake debts and past due amounts that you do not owe. More than 95% of North America phone scams come from India scammers who operate hundreds of fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as posing as a fake pharmacy; fake Social Security officer saying your benefits are suspended; IRS officer collecting on fake unpaid back taxes; debt collector threatening you for fake unpaid bills; fake bank, financial, Fedex/UPS/DHL scams; pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, student loan forgiveness, credit card and debt consolidation services; posing as Amazon to falsely say an unauthorized purchase was made to your credit card or your Prime membership was auto-debited from your bank; posing as Microsoft/Dell/HP/Apple to say your account has been hacked or they detected a virus on your computer; fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams; fake Google/Alexa listing and work-from-home scams; posing as an electric utility or Verizon-AT&T-Comcast to say your service is suspended; fake solar panel and home purchase offers; fake fundraisers asking for donations; fake phone surveys; and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account/routing number, Social Security number, and personal information. A India call center may rotate through a fake Social Security, computer subscription auto-renewal, pharmacy, and credit card offer scam during one week. Scammers use disposable VoIP phone numbers (e.g. MagicJack devices) or they spoof fake names and numbers on Caller ID. Anyone can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone with a fake CID that displays a fake name and number. India scammers spoof thousands of fake 8xx toll-free numbers. The CID is useless with scam calls unless the scam asks you to phone them back and CID area codes are almost never the origin of scam calls. You waste your time researching CID since scams use spoofed CID numbers from across the US and Canada, numbers belonging to unsuspecting people, invalid area codes, and also fake foreign country CID numbers; e.g. fake women crying "help me" emergency scams from India spoof Mexico and Middle East CID numbers. India scammers also spoof the actual phone numbers of businesses such as Apple, Verizon, and banks to trick you into thinking the call is valid. How can you avoid being scammed by phone calls? NEVER trust any unsolicited caller who sells something (most unsolicited calls are scams so your odds of saving money are very poor); asks for your Social Security number; offers a free gift or reward; threatens you with arrest/lawsuit or says you need to reply back soon (pressure tactic); asks you to access a website, download a file, wire transfer money or buy gift cards; claims suspicious activity on your account; says your subscription is being refunded or auto-renewed/auto-debited; and all pre-recorded messages. Recordings are far more likely to be malicious scams and not just telemarketer spam. All unsolicited callers with foreign accents, usually Indian, should immediately be suspected as scams. Many scams falsely say that you inquired about a job, insurance, social security benefits, or that you previously contacted them or visited their website. A common India phone scam uses a fake Amazon recording about a purchase of an iPhone, but Amazon never robo-dials and Amazon account updates are notified in emails. Many banks use automated fraud alert phone calls to confirm a suspicious purchase, but always verify the number that the recording tells you to phone or just call the number printed on your credit card. A common India scam tactic asks for your credit card for purchase of their fake product or service. The scammer calls you back one day later to say their credit card machine is broken, so you must wire transfer the payment to them. After you have wired the money to them, they still overcharge your credit card after they change phone numbers, so they rob you twice before disappearing. Wire transfers laundered through foreign bank accounts are untraceable. Scammers try to gain your trust by saying your name when they call, but their autodialer automatically displays your name or says your name in a recording when your number is dialed using phone databases that list millions of names and addresses. Scammers often call using an initial recording speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their India phone room. Some speech synthesis software sound robotic, but others sound natural. To hide their foreign accents, some India scammers use non-Indians in their phone room. India scammers often use interactive voice response (IVR) robotic software that combines voice recognition with artificial intelligence, speaks English with American voices, and responds based on your replies. IVR calls begin with: "Hi, this is fake_name, I am a fake_job_title on a recorded line, can you hear me okay?"; or "Hi, this is fake_name, how are you doing today?"; or "Hello? (pause) Are you there?"; or "Hi, may I speak to your_name?" IVR quickly asks you a short question to elicit a yes/no reply so it hangs up if it encounters voicemail. IVR robots understand basic replies and yes/no answers. To test for IVR, ask "How is the weather over there?" since IVR cannot answer complex questions and it keeps talking if you interrupt it in mid-sentence. IVR usually transfers you to the scammer, but some scams entirely use IVR with the robot asking for your credit card or SSN. A common myth is that IVR calls record you saying "yes" so scammers can authorize purchases just using your "yes" voice, but scammers need more than just a recorded "yes" from you - credit cards and SSN. Phone/email scams share two common traits: the CID name/number and the "From:" header on emails are easily faked, and the intent of scam calls is malicious just as file attachments and website links on scam emails are harmful. Scams snowball for many victims. If your personal/financial data are stolen, either by being scammed, visiting a malicious website, or by a previous data breach of a business server that stores your data, then your data gets sold by scammers on the dark web who will see you as fresh meat and prey on you even more. This is why some receive 40+ scam calls everyday while others get 0 to 2 calls per day. If you provide your personal and financial data to a phone scammer, lured by fake 80%-discounted drugs or scared by fake IRS officers, you receive far more phone scams and identity theft can take years to repair. Most unsolicited calls are scams, often with an Indian accent. No other country is infested with pandemics of phone room sweatshops filled with criminals who belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves and rapists who were serving jail time but released early due to prison overcrowding. India scammers shout profanities at you. Just laugh at their abusive language. Google "Hindi swear words" and memorize some favorites, e.g. call him "Rundi Ka Bacha" (son of whore) or call her "Rundi Ki Bachi" (daughter of whore). Scammers ignore the National Do-Not-Call Registry; asking scammers to stop calling is useless. You do these scammers a favor by quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams when you slowly drag them along on the phone call, always give them fake personal and credit card data (16 random digits starting with 4 for Visa, 5 for MasterCard), ask them to speak louder and repeat what they said to waste their time and energy.

Student Loans
Caller Name: Federal Student Loan Organization

The recording said (approx): This is Allysa Hall, Agent # 2561 from the Federal Student Loan Agency. You have been given reprieve from loan payments due to the Corona Virus but that is about to expire. However, you could qualify for continued loan abatement but it's on a first come first serve basis. Please call 202-843-5999 and key in your code, 070120, to qualify for continued loan forgiveness. Something like that. I knew it was a scam when I heard first come first serve. But MANY, MANY will be taken in by this message. Her voice was clear, articulate, sounded professional.

Government Scam
Caller Name: Melissa Hall Agent 2561 for Stimulus Forgiveness & Release Legislation

My phone did not ring so this was sent directly to my voicemail on July 27th 2020 at 3:50 PM EDT. Here is the transcript: "Hi, this is Melissa Hall Agent 2561. It looks like your student loan has been found eligible for the recent Stimulus and Forgiveness & Release legislation. However, your application needs to be completed. This applies to all loan statuses including loans that default and garnishment. If you could please call your dedicated eligibility line at 202-843-5999 we can have this applied immediately. Keep in mind, benefits are offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Again, eligibility line is 202-843-5999. Make sure to supply your personal validation code 070120 when calling in. Hope this helps and have a great day." This is such an obvious pile of horseshit that I can barely stand it. I have no student loans. I have never gone to college. I have never even taken any loan of any kind ever. These people are fraudulent and have no business calling me.
