If your caller ID comes up showing "Wilmington, DE" with the number 302-394-9566, ignore it. It is from a spoofed telephone number.
Also, if you get a number coming up on your phone with "Creditcardsvcs"ignore them. They will try to get you to give them your credit card number under the excuse that they are going to try to lower your credit card charges for you.
That last scam comes up under a lot of other names also. Usually it is a re-direct number that is either a 888 or a 800 number.
DON'T ever give them ANY information, whatsoever they ask for.
All of the above have been tried here a bunch of times.
Just thought I would pass that along.

Thanks, John. I would hope we all know better by now, but it can't be said often enough: No info to callers, ever, no matter what, unless you know them personally.

Everytime my roomie is late on a truck payment the calls start, and they come from all over the country. No number, just a city and state. I don't answer anything that doesn't show a name and number. 73
