    This e-mail is fraudulent; ignore its contents and delete it immediately.

    Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley has issued a warning against recorded messages designed to trick consumers into giving up personal banking information such as PINs, credit and debit card numbers. The messages, or “robo-calls”, claim to represent major banks, according to a release from the District Attorney’s office.

    The method of the scam is telling the consumer of a supposed issue with the banking network, and that verification of personal banking information is required.

    “Consumers need to be extremely wary of telephone calls requesting sensitive information about banking or credit cards,” Cooley said in the release. “Legitimate banks and financial institutions do not call their customers to request personal identifying information or discuss banking network problems.”

    Consumers should contact law enforcement if they suspect they are victims of the “robo-call” scam.

    Tags: Scammer Guard News Article   

    If Frank Esposito refers to you
    as a “guy,” you’d better watch
    out. His focus is helping people
    who’ve been taken advantage
    of in the variety of scams that
    are becoming more and more
    prevalent. When he refers to a
    scammer, well, listen to his own
    words. “We just took on a case
    where people were scammed
    out of 35 million dollars by a
    guy out of Ft. Lauderdale.”
    “We had an elderly couple who
    got scammed by a guy and after a year and a half with
    no resolution through police and attorneys, they came to
    my office and we had it resolved in 20 minutes.”
    “I see it every day…doctors, attorneys, psychologists,
    professionals… people from all sorts of backgrounds
    who think they’ll never get scammed. We had a lady in
    Texas who was told she won the Publisher’s Clearing
    house, and the guy showed her a bank check from
    Bank of America for $820,000. This guy, from
    Hollywood, Florida told her she had to pay to have it
    delivered, which is a scam. She thought that nothing
    would ever happen to her, but I see it every day.”
    OK, so not every “guy” is bad, and some of the scammers
    are female, but the key here is to be aware that
    there are guys and gals out there who want what you’ve
    got and they do almost anything fraudulent to get it.
    “With the state of our economy, scams will get more
    prevalent as these guys became more desperate for
    money. People are getting scammed every day.” Frank’s
    seen business opportunity scams, work at home scams,
    exploiting the elderly, time-share scams, and a seemingly
    endless list. He continues, “Consumers who are intelligent
    and well educated feel that they’ll never fall victim
    to a scam, but the scammers are ahead of the curve
    and they develop things that people go for when they
    feel very vulnerable.” Frank talks about the many confidence
    games that smart people fall victim to in these
    desperate times. “Good people have families to support!
    If somebody presents
    something in a nice way,
    they think, ‘Give me a jump
    on it!’”
    Incensed by the situations
    he works to resolve on a
    daily basis, Frank says,
    “Unfortunately, half of our
    clients are over 65 years
    old. That’s who these guys
    are targeting… people who
    are sick, the elderly. They
    destroy them. I’ve got
    clients who’ve spent more than $400,000 for nothing!
    They get threatened with lawsuits if they say they’ll
    report these companies to the authorities.”
    Psychologists and experts in con games understand
    how these scammers do so much damage without getting
    caught. In addition to the victims fearing threats of
    reprisal for their complaints against the domineering
    scammers, they are also ashamed of falling for the
    ruse. The elderly are especially quiet about scams
    they’ve been duped into.
    To utilize Scammer Guard’s services, become a member
    and then Frank and his staff of experts are in your
    corner. “I have attorneys and a lot of sources such as
    the Federal Trade Commission, the Attorney General’s
    office, things that we can utilize that people don’t know
    about.”
    “What drives me to do what I do is that I know the judicial
    process,” Frank says determinedly. “Sometimes it
    isn’t fair. You’ve got to be able to fight. I take that position
    for these people who don’t think that they have a
    chance. We give them hope…just give it to us and we
    do what we do.” Frank only sees these situations getting
    more aggressive. “What we do is study scams,” he
    says. “If you have us in your corner, we’ll make sure
    that you don’t get hurt.” He’s one of the good guys.

    Tags: Craigslist car buying scam   

    Recently a man in the military contacted Scammer Guard in need of our services. Scammer Guard was happy to hear they might be able to help a hero of our country.

The contract, title, vin number, and all other information to complete the sale was given. The money was sent (over $21,000) and the seller was never able to be found. The seller never returned the phone calls and the service was quickly shut off on the phone.

    Scammer Guard becomes the Solution to War Hero’s Returning Home to Face another Battle! 

    Scammer Guard has always been able to help Government Officials, Law Enforcement, and other Government Employees after they have been personal victims of scams. The new target for scams has recently targeted War Veterans shortly after they return home from duty. From business opportunities to large investments to fake job opportunities, telemarketers have been soliciting these war hero’s with intentions to deceive them financially.

    These veterans are learning quick that after leaving one Battle Ground overseas, they are coming home to face another one in their own backyard. In a time where it’s hard to obtain a steady job, steady income or money making opportunities; scams are on the rise. War heros are no different from the ordinary job seeker or maybe more subject to be offered and accepting these fake money making opportunities. It’s hard for returning soldiers to obtain jobs and to keep a steady income. When telemarketers pitch their best money making product it’s tough to turn down a so called “sure thing”.  

    In the past Scammer Guard has seen many Government Officials and Law Enforcement Agents request the assistance of Scammer Guard to seek help after becoming victims of scams. Scammer Guard has been effective solution for these individuals as the company’s techniques are effective in exposing the scam and helping the victim obtain restitution for their losses.
