How did card service scammers get my info?

The question many people often ask themselves is, how did card service get my information?

There are a few place where they get information like this. At the top of the list we will put Craigslist. In our next post, we will show you how dangerous posting on Craigslist can be at times. Craigslist is not the only site. What these modern day scammers do is something called “scraping.”

I’m very sure Craigslist know about this, and it’s time for them to do something about it. What is the sense of using the site when your information is handed over to scammers?

Well what is scraping? Scraping is mainly done by using bots (softwares that do repeated tasks as humans) that constantly scans websites like craigslist and gether information that is stored in a database. Then once the information is stored, it’s then filtered and they keep things like: your emails and phone numbers. These are normally the things people use when they put an ad on Craigslist.

The information is then imported over into their calling list. Most of them use VOIP servers that have VOIP SOFTWARES setup that can easily import the data. Once the data is imported, they then use VOIP PROVIDERS that gives them SIP TRUNKS (voip phone lines). These sip trunks normally allow what is called “CALL MASKING” which gives them the ability to change their phone number to even bogus phone numbers. So when they call out, it shows up something different on your caller id. It may allow show a phone number that when you call it back, it my be programmed to HANG UP ON YOU.

Card Service scammers are so stupid and lazy that, they don’t even cross reference their data against the Do Not Call list. Which is even more reason whey there should be a class action lawsuit against them.

It’s full time for the U.S. Government and the FBI to get off their ASSES and put that SCAM company out of business and in jail. They need to stop bugging peoples phone and go after the real scam.
