Phone Phishing Recordings

Hundreds of thousands of people lose money to telephone scams each year. Some lose only a few dollars, others lose their life savings. Scammers will say anything to cheat people out of money. Some will be very friendly, others will be threatening. And everyone is a potential victim.

Below are just a few of the many scam calls that Rebecca has gotten in the past several years. These provide just a few examples of the types of calls that you may get. If you get any calls like these, hang up. Or, if you want to report them, get as much information as you can, or record the call like I did, and report them to the US FTC, the Better Business Bureau, your State Attorney General's office, or to your country's Data Protection Authority; here is a listing of the EU DPAs.
