I live in Delmar Md just 2 miles from the Md State Police but am currently vacationing IN South Carolina. It is unnerving to have received a call at 9pm from verizon wireless fraud dept, They called to verify we had placed an order for a phone or pad upgrade to our wireless account,,,,,we HAD NOT,,, Verizon told us. they think someone has observed we are away on vacation and are trying to scam us.... at first we were skeptical but we also got an email from Verizon Fraud Dept at the same time and were transferred to the fraud dept at same number as our caller so we knew the call was legit,, .....someone is watching our neighborhood,!!
Verizon told us this scam operates this way, they decide a house is currently empty so they take the address enter in reverse directory then they place an order for a phone or ipad upgrade they order the product and set up delivery without signature required and then wait for the item to be delivered and casually walk to the door pick up the package and walk away for us to discover on our next bill THANK YOU VERIZON WIRELESS FOR BEING ON TOP OF THINGS
I have read in the media recently that crooks cruise neigborhoods actually stealing the copper off the hvac and propane systems ,,,, well someone has been watching our house and we have a house sitter! So we will have a security system installed when we get home
The crooks gave themself away when Verizon asked security questions,the caller hung up on the operator ,,they tried twice thats when the fraud dept called us,, so they stopped the order,,,,, thats great BUT N0W WE KNOW 0ur neighborhood is being watched! I am sending this to our neighbors and asking them to forward or call other neighbors to be viligant,,,,,what if the car and rv were sold or being serviced and we were home and unaware of being observed! What then,,,well I have gotten pretty good with my 38 but really would like to try the taser out and watch the sparks fly SO SUCKER FIND A NEW PLACE TO WATCH DELMAR IS BEING WARNED....OH DID I MENTION BOTH THE GUN AND THE TASER HAVE A RED LASER LITE ,,,,SO GUESS WHERE IT IS GOING TO BE AIMED,,,,BELIEVE ME I WON['T MISS!
