Received a call on my cell phone from a person named joe he told me it was a recorded line and asked if I could hear him I said yes and he hung up. I called the help desk with the Geek Squad to see if that might have been a scam and he told me it was. So I looked up on the internet and this is what it advised me to do. The call came in on 6/26/18 at 6:32 PM.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

"Joe" called inquiring about my healthcare and started to tell me what his records showed. I interrupted and asked what company he was representing. He hung up on me. I called back; Joe answered; I again asked about his company and he hung up. Future calls resulted in voicemails saying agents weren’t available and directing me to a suspicious email account.

Person "Joe" calls, I answered the phone, he states his name and this is a recorded line and asks "Can you hear me ok?". I unfortunately said yes. "Joe" goes on to talk about something I believe about winning something with a vacation and there is nothing I need to do but share with friends and family. The light went off and I instantly said no and no you do not have my consent for anything regarding this phone call. "Joe" instantly hangs up.

This person called saying he was from a cruise company and asked if I could hear him. After I said yes and before I could tell him not to call back he hung up. I immediately called back and told him not to call me and he better not charge me for anything. He hung up on me without replying and blocked my number. I texted him the same thing. I’ve been monitoring my accounts all day just in case. Here’s the number. (317) 360-0130

A man calls and says, "Hi this is Joe…..can you hear me ok?"

Heard on the news this week that this is some kind of scam to get you to say yes…possibly to say you said yes to buying something later on. Just wanted to report the phone number it came from.

Type of a scam Phishing

Caller identified himself, then proceeded to warn me my internet connection was in danger of being hacked. He calls several times a day despite hang ups and the threat of being turned over to the BBB. He claims he represents Symantec, however I currently have an account with them and was able to contact the company between calls and confirm this was in fact a scam.
