I receive a check from cypress abbeycompany- pobox 890 in kenwood ca 95452, ok this is not a company, this is a piece of land, they send me this check to wrap my car in name of Robin I cream, 2 days ago, and they sent a piece of paper explaining what has to be done plus they gave me a phone # to call them and let them know that I receive the check, this is the phone # 708-232-3545.

When I spoke to them the first time I told them that I was going to investigate this check before I put this in my account but looks that they just don't care about so what I'm going to do is just give this to the police and see if they can do something about. fr

I just received a cashier check for 3,650.00, dated 11/11/19.

Remitter: Suzanne Patton.

I tried to verify the routing number, 217500395, of course, it doesn't exist so I googled "Baskin Robbins Scam and ended up here.

Apparently, this scam has been going on for a while now but I hadn't heard about it. Although it sounded too good I thought," what the h**l...", but when I received the check today, I was more curious than anything, as to how someone would work this scam. Thank you to all that posted previously.

There was a letter along with the check that said, "Hello, the check you received is for a promotional drive campaign for ROBBINSice cream please text your full name and the check number to 623-505-5427 to confirm your package.

I'm not sure if anyone is investigating this but I thought I give as much information as possible just in case.

Subject: Re: Robbins Ice Cream driving [#269]


The Advertisement period for now is 3 months. If there's any course for extension, you would be notified. At the end of the program the advert decal would be removed at the company's expense and the cost of its removal will be included on the 2 weeks rental payment pay check that would be mailed to you. Subsequent Rental Payment would

be mailed to you on weekly basis. I am a freelance advertiser for Baskin Robbins Ice Cream® based on contractual agreement.

I'm happy to inform you that you have been successfully entered into the program. An expert, who will meet you has been allocated to install the decals on your car. You will therefore receive your payment alongside the money that will be paid to the national car

Detailer (expert) in the mail. A check of $4800 would be mailed to you to cover your money and the Vinyl decals designer's expenses for affixing the decals on your vehicle and for its removal cost at the expiration of the advert program period (3 months). So, when you receive the payment, you will take out your 2 weeks pay of $1600 and the rest of the funds from that same check should be transferred to the decals expert that will wrap the decal on your vehicle. All you need is to confirm the acceptance and understanding of this email.This ais to afford mutual relationship between you and the Detailer.

In view of this, please confirm the following details:

(i) How long do you intend to carry the advertisement on your car?

One (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months?

(ii) Do you use your car everyday?

(iii) Do you have bank account?

(iv) Send the picture of your vehicle.

(v) Which of the stated

Baskin Robbins Ice Cream® products vinyl decals would you want your car wrapped with: -

(a) Vanilla

(b) Chocolate

(c) Mint Chocolate Chip

(d) Pralines 'n Cream

(e) Chocolate Chip

(f) Jamoca® Almond Fudge ice cream

Please note that your choice of product would also be a determining factor on the type of the Advert Vinyl Decal your car would be getting wrapped with.

(vi) Also reconfirm your name and address as it should be on the check,where your payment should be mailed.

You are to be checking your email daily for updates and when your check will arrive in the mail. Again, Congratulations the Job is yours.

Acknowledge receipt of this email immediately.

Best Regards,

Brad Derek

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • Identitytheft.gov: If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at www.identitytheft.gov. This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
