    Latest Scam Attempt I've Received

    Post  Ladyelaine on Fri Mar 24, 2017 2:07 pm

    Got a call from 312-442-0513, message left on answering machine: 'This is Cash Advance. You have have been approved for a $15,000 cash advance, direct deposit. Please call back on our direct line, 312-442-0513. Thank you. Have a great day". I have not applied for a cash advance in any amount anywhere in this world.Caller ID listed Chicago Illinois. Did not call them back.

    Yeah 312 is Chicago.

    I get those things constantly. Truecaller hangs up on most of them. The ones it doesn't get I block. And when I'm working/driving (that seems to be their favorite time to pester me) my phone is set to not answer anything and tell them I'm busy.

    My favorite ones are those that want to tell me how I can pay off my student loan faster. I never had one.
