Scammers Getting More Convincing As Time Goes On

BEWARE!!!! Last night I received a call on my cell phone from 888-306-9063 informing me they were citizens bank attempting to collect a debt on my 2015 chevy traverse??? Proceeded to tell me I didn't pay my last payment, advised me to pay now over phone. Thankfully I was smart enough to know better and said I will double check when I get home and if I need to I will submit a payment. He insisted on doing it over the phone, told him know. Then he says before you go can you verify your address??? REALLY!!!! I said "You are called my cellphone, know my name & what I drive - if you are Citizens Bank like you say you are then my address should be on your computer screen right now" GUESS WHAT... He hung up on me!!!! What is really scary is he knows my name, make model color year of car, bank my loan is through, cell phone number; I almost believed him! And I confirmed my loan was paid May 28th and I looked up the number and it is a scam!!! So beware and never give your information over the phone!

So many hackers out there that have every ones personal information! It's quite scary and I'm afraid it is just going to get worse before it gets better. My hope is that everyone warns elderly family members not to trust everyone that calls on the phone or sends an email. They're the most vulnerable amongst us.

Umm.. UCC-1 filings for vehicle loans, etc are public records -

Pursuant to the standards set forth in the UCC, the financing statement need only contain three pieces of information:

the debtor's name and address
the creditor's name and address
an indication of the collateral, which may be very general
