Happy Holidays !........to all the phone scammers ! * My wife picks up the phone - person says it's Sears....... Seems they just wanted to double check her card expiration date. The person mentioned "we already have the card ID numbers." My wife is REALLY busy with my screaming 3 yr old + says she's busy. The person says "Oh....we can wait." My wife says "No....I'm busy....I'll do this later." ( at that point my wife didn't know it was a scam ) She calls SEARS about 20 minutes later --- Operator says "We didn't call ?......I'm checking our computer phone log + no authorized calls have been made." Wow............I don't know if my wife would have "fallen" for it or not ? I'm speculating that "the scam" would have somehow come full circle BACK to those card ID numbers - that they claimed "we already have". For Example : The expiration date would have been incorrect ----- whatever date, my wife said --- and they would need to know if the ID numbers matched "their numbers"....for security reasons, of course !...........we'll cancel the current card + send a new one immediately. Something along those lines ? * Anybody want to speculate how this scam would have played out ? * Anybody had a scam on them recently ?
