Re: intern

I haven't received any similar calls today but have received plenty of similar calls in the past. It likely to be a hoax call.

Re: intern

I have not recently received a call in regards to this but usually if they are telling you this it is more than likely a scam. Telco's will not come out and say this, they might call and tell you that there is some unusual activity on you account but other than that, tell the person on the other end to IDENTIFY them selves with their ID number and name.. just in case
