Con Artists Using Suckers List
from the once-bitten,-twice-targeted dept
It seems that there’s a list out there of people who have been scammed by telemarketers – and another scam organization is using it to scam people again. They call up folks who have been scammed, and pretend to be the NY Attorney General’s office or the Better Business Bureau, and say they’ll help the victim get back their money from the earlier scam… for a price. You would think, from all the info in the article, that these scam artists would be easy to track down. They know the phone number that they call from. They know the address they ask people to send money to (which then forwards it on). You would think they could use that info to track down these people.
