Reported scam promised money from past scams in exchange for bank account numbers.The lengths to which scammers go to take money from consumers knows no bounds.
In a new case announced today, a robocall operation allegedly tricked consumers into turning over bank account information—nothing new there. But this time, the scammers allegedly targeted consumers who might have been tricked by previous scams into thinking they were getting a refund.
To top it all off, the operation's masterminds allegedly impersonated the Federal Trade Commission, the US government's agency for protecting consumers from just this sort of wrongdoing. Spoiler alert: government agencies really don't like it when you impersonate them.http://ftc.gov/opa/2012/12/cubanexchange.shtmhttp://ars.to/UCjSac
