Area Code 647 Scam Telephone Calls

Area Code 647 Scam Telephone Calls

The scammers called several days in a row to report suspicious activity on my Visa or Mastercard. They wanted the first 4 digits of my credit card number, which I gave them. Then they wanted my full debit card number to enable them to block future false charges to my MC (right, this sounds likely!). I gave them a false 16-digit number, incorrect expiry date, false 3-digit code on back. Then I got forwarded to the supervisor who has the authorization to secure my account.

I had visions of him typing busily to sign onto my account, and he was probably going to help me change my password to make the account more secure. But we didn't get that far, because he must have figured out I gave him a bad card number, about the time I asked, "If my Visa is the problem, why are you so interested in my debit card?" He hung up.

    I get text and calls all the time .. mainly texts now since I play with them. Unfortunately they steal numbers and put them on as their number showing but are probably calling from the US or over seas. They assume you will answer with a local number.

    1647 317 1728 scam call from 'TD Fraud'

    They called me quite a few times. The last time I told them that if there was a problem with my credit card, I’d call my credit card company to check with them. They haven’t called lately.

    About once a week I get a call from 1 647 944 2513 and a recorded voice tells me about two charges on my VISA card from Amazon and another web site that are suspicious. My VISA card may be compromised.

    I suppose tyhe next step would be for me to give them all the card information and passwords so they can reverse the transactions.

    Really nice of them to let me know... Considering that I have not had a VISA card since about 1990.

    Why is it always my VISA that is compromised and none of my other 10 credit cards?

    I received a call from a 647 number and it said "my credit card" but did not specify which bank- hence I suspected it was a fraud.

    My card was recently used fraudulently so I did want to double check... the fact that someone else had a fraud is reassuring to me.

    The story - the first 4 digits define the institution ( eg Royal Bank.. )- never ever would a legitimate call need to ask the first four numbers.

    Thank you

    Message on answering device asked me to call this number to address unusual charge to Visa card. Original call was from 1-647-794-2980. Did not call as request was way too suspicious and weird. Probably a scam.
