ATTENTION EVERYONE VERY SERIOUS

I got scammed and i dont want it to happen to any of you.


I got a call from "the harris county sheriffs dept" NOT saying i had a collect call from an inmate, being a mom i take these calls. The inmate was not a name i recognized and they gave me a number to call to take my number off this list......... I made the call to remove my number but just found out that it was a scam to transfer all my calls to a t mobile cell phone and they have been accepting the collect calls fro about 3 weeks now racking up almost $250.00 worth of calls....I contacted the phone company because i called my house to get ahold of my housekeeper and a stranger answered, stupid biotch gave me her cell # and now they are filing a police report to catch these rat bastards. BEWARE OF COLLECT CALLS

yea pretty smart how they went about it because you cant get collect calls on a cell but if it is forwarded to cell from a land line then it works, until they get cought. The girl that is accepting these calls is probably the one that will go down for it and maybe some added time to the criminal that is in the pokie as well. I just hope they get what's coming to them.

AT&T was great, they were aware of the scam and took all charges off and i was told i was the first to provide them with the recieving phone so they assured me that they will catch them with the info i provided.

they contacted the sheriffs dept while i was on the line and said they would prosecute immediately, because they are using government lines for thier scam it is federal.

Why don't people have the phone company remove the ability to even accept collect calls?? They'll do it for you with no problem.

Live and learn ya know, i personally am or was the kind of person that would want to be there for you if you were in jail and i was the phone call you made although i have refuced to help when the crime they did = the time they're doing. I dont want to get mixed up with none of that, but if a loved one needed me now i am scared to say yes i will take the call.
