Progressive Business Publications Scam With International Credit Recovery Inc

USDA’s Charge Card Service Center would like to alert you to a new scam that has occurred with employees within USDA who have received phone calls from a fraudulent company, “Professional Business Publications” and then as an organization “International Credit Recovery.” Please see details of the scam below.
The scam works like this:
“The sales calls come from a fraudulent company called “Professional Business Publications” and they try to sell you subscriptions to publications. After several months, they call you back under the name of “International Credit Recovery” stating that they are a collection agency for “Professional Business Publications” and that you had agreed to a publication subscription. When you indicate that you did not purchase a subscription, they tell you that you confirmed by giving them your date of birth (Month and Day only). If you still refuse to pay, they threaten you that your personal information will be submitted to the credit bureaus. The telephone numbers for “International Credit Recovery” are 607‐748‐5231 or 607‐748‐4686 or 607‐748‐1688.
A complaint has been filed re: this scam with the New York Attorney General’s Office.”
Please advise your cardholders of the following:
• Do not give out ANY personal information over the phone, the internet or the mail.
• If you think the request is valid you should always contact the bank yourself using the number on the back of your card and forward any suspicious emails or information of potential fraud to [email protected]
• If anyone ever gives out information they should immediately call US Bank Customer Service.
Please pass this on to your cardholders, coordinators and approving officials. By informing each other, we protect each other.
Please email any questions to [email protected] Usda. Gov.
Thank you!
