    That's horrible Johnie! I would've probably been caught by this thinking that most banks now use overseas call centers and such. But probably yelling at you and telling you you'll be arrested isn't the best scam! And if it were legit wouldn't they have a lawyer call you or something? Not some phone worker telling you the police will arrest you!

    I hope everything works out and they don't do anymore harm to your id. Did they have your whole SS #?? Is that still something to worry about?

    Glad it's being sorted Johnie!

    I had my Diner's card number stolen a few years ago - I was lucky that Diner's alerted me to it - apparently the fraudsters had done it to several people.

    They bought 2 pieces of artwork worth about $5000 each with my card - I contested it of course and got a new number. Diner's were really good about it.

    I'm glad your bank and mobile company are sorting it out for you - what a pain!

    This has happened to Dh :rolleyes008: It really is scary and makes me so damn angry!! They actually got money out of our bank account and it took weeks to get everything settled. We contacted everyone we knew to and reported them to everyone who would listen.

    They started with our debit card number and found out everything else from there. We now use cash for everything we can. I hate that people make a living by taking things from other people :mad:

    Oh man! That is awful! I am so glad I did change the bank info today then. It wasn't just the fact that they had all my info, they were so nasty and ugly too!
