If the recipients call the number, they will get an automated message asking them to enter their account credentials, personal information, including their social security numbers, bank account numbers, or other information the cybercriminals need in order to gain access to their potential victims’ accounts, steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently.

      I got this exact message left on my voicemail, but the phone number is different. It is 510-295-4937. I'm glad I looked that IP number up and saw that it is a scam because I was getting ready to call.

      Business must have slowed for them because of your alert so they either changed their phone number or are calling from multiple numbers. You may want to add the above phone number to your alert. Thank you for the warning!

    Fortunately, their "operators" who sounded like a munchkin from "The Wizard of OZ' were all busy & after 6-10 "Your call is important ..." another voice said "Good-By".

    Please remind your readers it only takes a minute to use a search engine to confirm the customer support number is a fraud. It is surprising how many people don't know about this.
