My girlfriend got a call from someone claiming to be an attorney for Instacashusa.com saying she owed over a $1000 to them for a loan taken out in July. Well after they threatened her with court and that she's being charged with 3 different felonies, she asked for written proof and this is where it got fishy. They said they'd have to fax it but she doesn't have a fax so they said they'd fax it to Unemployment and she could get it there and after she bitched about that they hung up. So I googled instacashusa and came up with several websites saying they all got the same call from people with "heavy middle eastern accents" as well from the same 810-676-161 number (No i didn't forget a number thats how it shows up on called ID) They were all told to call different numbers than the one we got but they all had the same exact details as her caller today. So we contacted the peirce county sheriff, FBI and the FTC about this. The guy has called back 6 times since then and we called him out, called him an F***ing scammer and that we contacted those agencies and hung up on him. He keeps calling back sticking to the story though so I have to admire his commitment lol. Only scary part is they had her SS number, Bank name and cousin's names.

So looks like even the scammers have been outsource to Indian call centers LOL

I had this asshole from the UK try to hire me for a job over AIM last night. I made up this whole story that i just got out of prison for 2 counts of attempted murder, and he still asked me to work for him. :td:

That's creepy that they've got that info. It would be hilarious otherwise. I'd give them shit in an Arab accent in return.

Lotsa scams going around. I always get the car warranty expiration, which is a good one, considering the newest car I have is over 20 years old.

Wow, you got a 20 year warranty? That's awesome. It must have paid for itself several times over by now.
