First time here. I've been baiting scam numbers etc. I hate scammers.

This is one that was recently sent out to try to scare kids that their student loans are bad and they will fix it for them. These people are scum. Here's the letter. Hammer them:

Moved here from General Chat.

This is not really within our purview. We deal with advance fee fraud, which is a very different sort of scam.

Googling that phone number comes up with a lot of hits. This particular scam is obviously widespread but it is not baitable so there's really nothing we can do.

Removed unnecessary quote of previous post - bware419ers


Got it. My business was hit with the "pay us in gift cards or we'll cut your electricity" one (we didn't fall for it).
Would that one be an example?
And should I post that?
Thanks!

Not really Advanced Fee Fraud, as we define it, either.

Maybe this will help: http://www.419eater.com/html/419faq.htm
