Complaint / review text:
Just got a call from these very OFFICIAL SOUNDING people. Said they were from Bank of America, and that there was a charge for $1,000's of dollars on my account from a computer store!
They called from an UNKNOWN NUMBER and then gave me 1-800-971-8053 to call back as their "Fraud Department". Thank goodness the number had a strange recording & i couldn't get through... They were FAKE and phishing!
Called my real bank number, from my bank statement not the # they gave me, and they said i had NO SUCH CHARGES. How can criminals like this get away with pretending to be a bank? They sounded completely legitimate.
NEVER TRUST ANYONE WHO CALLS YOU or gives you a phone number to call back. Only go to the original company, from your own source!
Ps – when I called the real Bank of America, they said 1-800-971-8053 is NOT one of their numbers. And they didn’t even care! They must get so much of these fake calls, they don’t even track them. Crazy.
