A popular app I use recently asked me to do an identity confirmation. I recently used this app which is Venmo so it’s normal for stuff like that to be verified. I verified the info in the app itself and one of the things it wanted me to verify was the last 4 of my ssn.
Because of that, a few hours later when I get a phone call about how my ssn is compromised and could be flagged or some jargon they used, I thought perhaps it was possible. It was an automated message and it said “press 1 to be transferred to an agent”.
I’m already super sketpical and was not going to release any info. When the human answered the phone, it was a call center and she had an indian accent so right away, yeah fuck this, this is a scam. But I didn’t hang up, I wanted to see if they had info of mine.
She asks how she could help and I said, “you guys called me, you tell me”. Then she says “you got a call and you were transferred to me, correct”. I replied, “Look, I’m not giving you any information so if this is a scam you can just fuck off”.
This cunt scamming bitch said “fuck you mother fucker” in her indian accent.
Call was disconnected. I fucking hate these phone scammers man!
