I had a boy call my father saying that he was his nephew. Saying that he had gone to a wedding and used a rental car and had got into a car accident over in London Ontario and that he was now in jail. He needed $2000 b/c he was drinking and his insurance doesn't cover the damage and or bail. Sadly we have not heard from this individual for over many years due to family problems . I noticed when I tried to call back ( this number can not be completed as dialed ) comes up . I looked the number up and found out that is was not a London Ontario area code so I did more digging . I don't know where they get there information from but please be warned this is a scam and not real.

I recvd call from this number, a crying boy who claimed to be my son. Used his name and said he was in jail in Quebec. I fell for it hook line and sinker to the tune of $2200.00 The money is secondary to the RAGE I am feeling for being duped by these bastards and I will have my REVENGE. The minute you hear the words "Western Union" HANG UP! its a scam
i have recieved a bunch of prank phone calls from this number too 648-777-7775.
I received a phone call from this number, telling me I was one of 5 winners of a laptop. Model DellXPS15, callback number given as 1-800-940-8686 ext 313 which was also the caller's ID#, name given as Don Poole, very professionally spoken. He told me the call would be recorded for training and confirmation purposes, read off my name, address and the last 4 numbers of my Visa card with expiry date. Gave me two options for delivery; 10 days @ $4 or 3 days @ $10. I agreed all along but declined to give my full Visa number over the phone. He insisted he already had it, "just" needed confirmation. I stated patiently that I do not release my full card number to unsolicited callers. I then pointed out that the last 4 digits show to all, where the rest are "****". He started telling me he really wanted to help, completely understood, but would get fired if he gave me even one other digit for confirmation. I said fine, let me speak to a supervisor about this. He put me on hold and I was cut off soon after. I called back the number he'd given and they've never heard of him, don't have an extension 313 and do not deal with laptops.
