They have called several times and never left a message until last night. The man said it was Wells Fargo and to call back leaving this number with a case number to reference. I bank with Wells Fargo and the number is always an 800 number and comes up Wells Fargo whenever I receive a call from them. I'm really suspicious of who this really is.

This seems to be a valid Target call. NOTE: This is NOT a call from Russia as previously posted by the "Pros 'n' Cons" user who is an Indian scammer who has started posting on RoboKiller to redirect the blame of many phone scams to Russia, when the foreign accents of nearly all phone scams are very obviously Indian and not Russian lol. In fact, I have never heard a single Russian-accent phone scammer ever. Russia and China government and individual thieves aim for much bigger fish by hacking into business and government websites and email phishing (and the Indians also email you viruses). All of the fake posts by user "Pros 'n' Cons" really should be deleted.

Social Security Scam
Caller Name: (612) 815-5872

This is a fake credit services scam call by criminals phoning from Russia, trying to steal your credit card number, Social Security number, and personal information. There are hundreds of these Russian scams where they offer to lower the interest rates on a fake student loan that you do not have, consolidate all your debts at "0% interest", or give you an unsecured $100,000 line of credit. This call begins with a pre-recorded robotic speaker who pretends to be a credit and loan service. The robotic English message is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this Russian scam. If you respond to the call, then you get transferred to the West Russian scammer who tells you that because of your good credit history, he can offer you lower interest rates... he just needs your credit card number and SSN "for verification purposes". More than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in Russia that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as pretending to be a fake pharmacy, posing as fake Social Security or IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes" or fake bill collectors threatening you for fake unpaid debts, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, and debt, student loan forgiveness, credit card consolidation services, posing as Amazon to falsely say that an unauthorized purchase was made to your account or that your Prime membership was auto-debited from your credit card or bank account, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, pretending to be DHL, UPS, FedEx or a bank, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account and routing number, or Social Security number and personal information. Some Russian scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many Russian scammers now phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic person speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their Russia phone room, but then you speak to the West Russian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Russian scammers often either use disposable VoIP phone numbers or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake names and phone numbers that show up on Caller ID. Russian scammers often spoof fake toll-free Caller ID numbers. Russian scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling has no effect. Never give an unknown caller your credit card number or Social Security number. Companies who already have your information may ask for the last four digits of your Social Security number for verification. Some Russian scammers ask for your bank account and routing number or ask you to wire transfer them a payment, giving a fake explanation that they cannot accept a credit card or personal check. This is an instant scammer alert because scammers can withdraw money if they know your bank account and routing number (e.g. counterfeit cashed checks) and illegal wire transfers are far less traceable than unauthorized credit card charges. Russian scammers may threaten to have you arrested, but the IRS, Social Security Administration, and debt collectors cannot threaten to arrest or sue you on the phone; they are required to send you paper notices by registered mail. If the scam sounds very authentic, ask the scammer for their verifiable company name, street address, and a callback number, which all real businesses will provide. Every Russian scammer will immediately fail this test since they all use spoofed fake Caller ID numbers or Non-Fixed VoIP numbers (e.g. Skype or Google Voice) that they quickly dispose of. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scammers, usually with a slight or strong West Russian accent, and most scam calls originate from Russia.

Bank
Caller Name: Target's credit card department

Today I received three calls within a two hr period of time from phone number: 612.815.5872. As of 5:18pm I have received a total of six calls today!!! (*11:36am, *1:40pm, *1:51pm, *4:01pm *4:34pm, and *5:12pm) On the 6th call, I answered. It is the customer service dept. for a national retail store, Target. Target was calling about their store's credit card named The "RedCard". Target was calling to inform me that my credit-card payment hasn't posted, & so it is late/past due!

My cell phone number used to be owned by Jeffrey Montague. I’ve had this number for 3 years. This company keeps calling me asking for him (as he owes people all over the place). I’ve called this company and told them this...and instead of really taking my cell off their list, they continue to call me. BIG HUGE SIGH!!!
