Misleading messages

I got a post card that initially leads a person to beleive they have an annuity coming due. I was curious. They got my phone number. I then asked them what company the annuity was in. The end result was that they wanted my financial information to try to sell me an annuity. The target is the older folk, like my self. I called the insurance commissioner and he was aware of the problem that has been going on for about a month.

So I am going to send what I have to the various senior centers alerting them to the sneak attacks. Perhaps they might gang up and tie up their phone line.

The card had an address: Annuity Service Insurance Center., PO. Box 1012, Medina, OH 44258, Phone (800)560-9448 with the name of a person "Gale Clary"

Yeah..most definitely

Just yesterday I got a spoof email for the second time in 3 months from someone claiming I had unpaid balances w/ Ebay. The email appeared to be from Ebay and had a link that requested account and credit card informatin verification.

I passed it along to ebay and they confirmed that is was a fake.
