Caller name: Daryl Johnson
Caller type: Unknown
I got a voice message from a Daryl Johnson this morning by a local unknown Number (818)351-3531 he claimed he's from Dun & Bradstreet he said he needed to speak to whoever handles business report to give him a call back re our company, the number he left (866)257-4284 xt 3337 he also left a reference number 069258965.
I was tempted to call D&B just to tell them WE DON'T OWN a company when I decided to look up the number not surprisingly here I am reporting a scam.
Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
Got a voice message today from Jessica (she does not seem to have a last name, how unprofessional is that?), claiming to be with Dun & Bradstreet and trying to reach Rebecca (no last name was given again) to update our company profile and credit report with them.
Problem 1) there is no Rebecca here at this number
Problem 2) there is no business here at this number, it is a residence
If you get a call, claiming to be from Dun & Bradstreet, hang up!
They are all phishing scams.
Caller name: 800/627-3867
Caller type: Unknown
Said they were calling from a company called Credit Toss about our D&B account, was evasive when I asked for more information, just insistent that he speak with the owner or manager. I have worked 3 years for our company now, answering phones and know when it is bogus. He was persistent I give him that!
Caller name: Fidel at Credibility Corp
Caller type: Telemarketer
Fielded a call from "Fidel" at "Credibility Corp" - never said anything about D&B. I'm always wary when caller ID comes up as 800 Service or Unknown so I answered with caution. Fidel spoke so fast as if he were trying to speed past me....not a chance. He asked for the owner by first name (because he couldn't pronounce the last name) - I said they were unavailable and asked if there were something I can help with - he then asked to speak to the person responsible for the company's credit report. I asked him to be more specific - pertaining to what exactly on our credit report. He said - Does (owner) have voicemail? I replied - They prefer me to handle calls. So again I asked him to be specific as to why he was calling, he only said, "there's incomplete information on the credit report that we need to clarify" I played dumb and asked "Did we hire you to provide this service for us?" The more questions I asked, the faster he spoke and got frustrated until he finally said "let me leave a message with you please" So I obliged...then looked up the number for the scam possibilities online. BINGO!! Found a lot!!
Sorry "Fidel" at 866-257-4284 x2841 you will NOT be receiving any of our data
