Same story with me - Jennifer re: a mandatory change to my merchant account. Never called back.
Jennifer also left the same message on our business voicemail on Sunday night, May 12 - Mother's Day!
Same exact message as above reports.
Call came in at my business on 5/12/13 3:06 p.m. message left on answer machine. "Pat this is Jennifer of Merchant Services about your account". In trying to call the number on Monday it is no longer in service. This is a scam.
Mother's Day call with the same message. Also knew my 1st name.
Jennifer left the exact same message on our business voicemail on Sunday night, May 12 - Mother's Day! Definitely a scam. Thanks for the heads up!
I received the same call as described above from this number. I suspected it was a scam. I am grateful to the rest of you for reporting this.
Same exact message on Sunday on Mother's Day. Immediately suspected such a call on a holiday.
Jennifer left the same message on our company line. We have no merchant services account. Dialed the number and got a recording that the number had been disconnected.
Exactly the same as Mr. T above:
Caller ID came up as "Restricted", but the call back number was from 855-235-2985.
This pushy broad left a message on at 3:17pm, Sunday afternoon.
Using first name, indicated that they were Merchant Services and "had to make mandantory changes to my account."
What account? We don't have any account, on account of their bold scams. Any reputable charge card company would mail you first to document their own tracks.
Bunch of dirtbags try to work unsuspecting people.
I dialed the # and got a recording....." you have reached a # that has been disconnected". Strange!!!
WE do not have a Merchant Services Account and got the same message on Sunday 05/04/2013. Has anyone returned the call?
We got a voicemail too, on Sunday night. We have a merchant account, so they must have gotten the list from someone illegally.
This person "Jennifer" contacted my place employment and stated this was an emergency contact and to call them this week? No company name, no one answers the phone. Definately a scam!
Same message from "Jennifer"... Knew only my first name & didn't identify what company she was with by name, just claimed to be with my merchant service provider.
Called my true merchant services provider first and they said it's a scam...
Same message! I smell a scam!
Caller from 855-235-2985, left a message on my office phone at 12:15 Sunday afternoon. She knew my first name and identified herselft as "Jennifer" and indicated I need to make immediate and mandatory changes to my merchant services account. Trust me, my merchant services provider would never call at such time with this type of message.
