Total money lost $1,550

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I was easy prey for a puppy scam starting on 10/08/18 by a website called I lost $1550.00 before I realized I was a victim. I discovered too late that everything about the website, owners name, address and the delivery company was all fake. This scammer then change his website name to When I reported this scammer to, his website was soon removed. Now I believe he has change the name to and I reported this website also.

I am positive that the same scammer used karlmaxbeagle and noblepocketbeagles as his website because he shows the same puppy with the same name on both sites that I had originally ordered. He also uses the term "you come to the right place" in his advertizement.

Type of a scam Phishing

Today, May 5th of 2018, I got a call and a voicemail from the number "646-396-7491" registered coming out of "New York"; the caller ID displayed it as only "New York" and not specifically as New York City or somewhere in New York State. The voicemail of 30 seconds, as well as I remember it, said, "Allegations are coming against you. To avoid us taking legal action against you, call us at "646-396-7491". Thank you."

Immediately starting to think that this was a scam, I got online and did a search for "legal action against you scam", finding a news article (Fox News 31 out of Denver, CO) verifying that this was none other than, yes, a scam.

This 646 scam number has since called me back twice but has not left any more messages. I myself have not called the number back and do not plan to ever do so.

I had a message in facebook messenger from my best friend asking, "It’s you? 🙂 my name. There was an attached video supposedly. I unfortunately clicked on the link. I then reached out to my friend asking what she had sent me. She had done the same thing a few days prior with a friend of hers and was pretty sure it was a phishing scam to get access to her fb friends info. Not sure what the intent was. Quickly changed my fb password

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Had phone call September 1st from 512-717-0058, asking about medication I take. I asked who they are and they hung up. When I called back it doesn’t ring, no answer. This was a personal question about medication I take and they shouldn’t have that information.

This scammer has bought up a block of numbers 0-99 ( 618-491-69?? ) and all they say is this is a recorded line can you hear me, once you reply they hang up. They got me the 1st time and I blocked that number along with 50 others and still counting. Can you please find out who these people are and warn others. Getting ridiculous that I block at least 2 numbers a day from this scam. I haven’t been hit yet by their scam but they are trying to get people to say yes and then who knows what they do with it. Can they get into your cell phone or use it to open or purchase things ? Please look into this.Thank you

This call came in on my line at work. I answered per department policy and when the caller asked if they were speaking with [my name] i replied yes and before i could finish saying how may i help you they hung up. I attempted to call back thinking they possibly got disconnected but the number is not available to incoming calls.

I was concerned that I just received a call where all they need to do is record me saying yes in order to authorize charges in my name.

From the online lookup i did on this number it appears this is a scam call number.

I think this may have been the scam where they try to get you to say yes……..the female scammer hesitated when I answered and then said she had problem with her headset, she then started talking about she was calling because I had stayed at one of their resorts …I told her to remove me from the call list and I hung up….I do not recall staying at any resorts and this also seemed like a description of some of the scams trying to gety you to say yes I have read about recently

Type of a scam Phishing

On 2/9/17, I received a cell phone call from an unknown source. I believe they wanted to have me say the word "Yes".

I learned after that call that someone may send me a bill and use the word "yes" to confirm the purchase. Also, my credit cards and bank statements may be at risk.

I have not lost any money as of this morning.

Type of a scam Identity Theft

Received a letter from Sun Trust Bank about over draft fees. Since I don’t have a Sun Trust account I contacted them about this. They said that there was an account open in my name with all my correct information except for a different phone number. I was given a phone number for the main branch of Sun Trust and talked to someone in their fraud dept.

At that point they put a freeze on the account, I wanted it shut down but the wanted it left open to be able to catch the responsible party and get their legal team involved.

I then contacted the Police about this situation. An Officer came to my home and took all the information and it would be turned over to the FBI for further investigation.
