Phishing Alert - American Express
I think I know why it's called phishing - because it stinks. Today I got a call from a man who claimed to be calling on behalf of American Express. He said "what do you want to do about your account?". He claimed I owned them $6,000. (such a nice round number!) and it was due by the end of the month. So?
I hung up on him and he had the nerve to call back and continue with his harangue. He said he knew I was a Realtor in Hawaii - he must have found my cell phone number on the internet. Well DUH, don't you think that's a little fishy? He really blew it when he couldn't even come up with a better middle name for me than Kelly (blame that on St. Paddy's Day today). HELLO - since you saw my website you would know my middle name starts with an M. Am I supposed to believe that American Express searches the internet to find their customers phone numbers? Sure, I'll believe that!
Beware of calls from 1 - 800 448-9570
(I Googled this number and WOW - what a lot of info on these guys.)
And a few hours later, I get another call from this same number! But it got cut off before I answered - lucky for him or he'd be needing ear surgery by now.
REALTORS - watch out for these jerks who search sites like Active Rain to find unsuspecting victims.
PHISHERS - quit pestering me!
BUYERS AND SELLERS - Go ahead and call me, I'm waiting to hear from you if you're thinking of buying or selling your Maui home.
