Indian/Middle Eastern Payday Loan Scammers using Magic Jack phones
Hello...and forgive me if this is old news, but I've been getting at least two or three of the "a case is being downloaded to your Social Security number" scam calls daily as of late...and finally I got fed up and ran a check on one of the numbers they left as a call back number.... 817-400-6871 to see if it is a landline or a cell...with plans to utilize Google Voice to have a little fun with them. It came up a LAND LINE in Texas! This surprised me, but not after I saw which "phone company" they used....the number is owned by YMAX Corp., which is the company that makes the Magic Jack...a device that allows people to make calls on their computer for like $20 a year.
Here is my thought, and maybe someone with a little more info and/or knowledge of the who to contact.....these people are using American services to scam American citizens. Couldn't the FBI or Homeland Security or someone subpeona them to provide who owns these numbers/how its being paid/etc. so as to get a handle on these people? I can't be the first person to think of this. I did see a post on 800notes.com about one person who brought it up with Magic Jack and they played the "customer information is priveleged" card.
