We received a phone call from reps claiming to provide a benefit to for medicare. They asked for bank account information. We believe them to be less than honorable.
Same thing just happened to me the Indian guy called and said that a fraudulant charge had been put onto my account. Which I knew that a company owed me about the same amount that he said so I thought it was correct. So I gave him the info and right after I thought it's not right called my bank and closed my account! DONT FALL FOR IT!!! He said US ADVISORY GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION!!!!
Even my mom got a call from a company called medextras where they told that she would be getting a medical card where she has to pay $347 which is a one time payment , they even took her account number of the bank. I was literally shocked when i came to know about this bcoz it was the account where my mom recieves her money from everyone and you see there are so many scams going around. But it was my good luck that this wasn't a scam , she got a medical card by the next 15 days where the whole family is benefited , since they are giving a huge discount covering the whole family.We are really happy with their job and pray they do good in the future as well.....
An individual with a strong Indian accent, named "Christopher Smith", called from the U.S. Advisory Services telling me that there had been a fraudulent activity on my accounts. Supposedly $200 was taken out, and they were going to pay me $599 for the illegal action. Just needed my account info. Smelled wrong from the begining, and then i finally got this phone number from him....at which point i googled it and this came up. Thanks a ton for saving me getting wool pulled over my eyes.
My mother got a telemarketing call and signed up and never used the service for months. When we saw the billing on her account we automatically assumed it was a scam called to cancel. Surprisingly they were able to provide us with a recording with her agreeing to buy. We were upset and left with no other choice but to use the service and to whole families surprise found the savings incredible and got a specail rate for the whole family. We are now easily saving thousands a year and are happy.
The only complaint we have about Medextras is that they seem to have their call centers in India which makes it a little frustrating when placing a new order but all and all worth it.
Company claims to assist with crediting your bank account if it has been erroneously debited in the past. Consequently, they send forms requesting bank account information, etc., and ask you to mail them in. DON'T GIVE OUT YOUR INFORMATION! It's a scam!
Hi, those sucker almost got me. they almost took $394.00 from my checking account but i caught it in time, I have no Idea how they got my checking number. The BBB told me it was a Medical Discount Plan and the number on the check was 800-859-8943 you will never get an answer just an automatic recording. The person or persons are in Champlain NY and the numeber that's on your caller ID is in California, We must some how stop these
SOB, yes they also go by Med Extras. Please call the BBB to file a report
and then call the FTC (Federal Trade Commisson) Let's fight back
Not Too Funny
I got that call too from an Indian guy. He wanted to verify my routing number. I don't know how he had that number. Then he wanted to know my account number. Don't give away your account number. He said he wanted to know that number to verify my identity. Don't give your account number out!
A person with a strong indian accent called my home. Said his name was "Sam" and that his company wanted to send me a medical card which along with my medicare card would entitle me to 90% off all medical and dental expenses. Said he needed the bank in which my social security check was deposited and needed the account # for verification. When I asked the name of the company and its phone number he called his supervisor (another indian named "Harris") who told me that their card had a one-time cost of $347. After asking him several times he finally told me the name of the company was Medextras. He also said they had only begun to offer this program to social security recipents in Louisiana in the past couple of days. It was evident to me that Sam and Harris are a couple of scam artists and I finally hung up on him. Unfortunately, I don't have caller ID, but these two are very persistent and they need to be stopped before they take advantage of some older person.
A company claiming to be "Medextras" asking for bank account numbers for a "one time payment that would replace medicare payments for a lifetime". "Just $347.50 will cover the payments for the rest of you life."
To good to be true???
THIS SEEMS LIKE A SCAM!!!
NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO SOMEONE THAT CALLS YOU!!!
