Fun Vantage / $100 SCAM

1 United States Review updated:

I wanted to call Verizon to pay my bill. I mistakenly dialed Verizon's phone number by mixing up a number. Not aware of this, I honestly thought that the scammer that answered the phone call was truly a Verizon representative. This scammer began the phone call by explaining to me that for only a dollar and reading over information, I would receive a $100 Wal-Mart giftcard in the mail. I continued to believe that this was in fact Verizon and legit, although I still asked many detailed questions before giving out my credit/debit card information. I asked things like, "are you sure that I will only be charged 1.00 and nothing more, ever"? The man went on to repeat again that all I needed to do was read and look over a packet of information that I'd receive in the mail, and after reading, it was up to me to decide if I wanted to continue with anything. I NEVER RECEIVED ANY PACKET IN THE MAIL. I DIDN'T RECEIVE ANYTHING AT ALL FROM THEM-ZIP-NADA-NOTHING. OBVIOUSLY, NOT EVEN THE GIFTCARD. I later realized that I had dialed the wrong phone number, and since then I have not been able to reach any of the scammers on the phone nor any information regarding this scam, except sites like this one, where people are complaining about the issue, BUT PLEASE, HAS ANY ONE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH THIS ISSUE AND RECEIVED ANY TYPE OF RECONCILIATION AT ALL???? PLEASE SHARE!

You have to listen the call carefully they tell you each and every thing clear on the call they do not charge you until you give them a clear approval . So your approval is a clear proof that you have signed for this agreement and you are agreed to try the program for atleast the trial period
