Vishing Scam?

The other day I a comment was awaiting moderation. I thought “Nice. I wonder what someone had to say…” Looking at the post – “police-intimidation” I became even more curious. Clickity, clickity moments later I saw the following:


I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT POLICE ABUSE. I WAS A VICTIM… PLEASE CALL ME AT 1305 467 2336, I WANT TO MAKE A COMPLAINT, I DONT KNOW HOW. THANK YOU

I did a boat load of research and found that Albert freely posts his phone number in many places. roommate.meetup.com had someone with nearly the identical address @msn.com vs @hotmail.com.

I wrote up a post describing how it appeared that this dude was trying to get away with something. I had it all set then decided to top it off with a recording of the vishing scam.

With Skype loaded up and a plugin that records calls I dialed the number. Ring, ring, ring… “Hello.” Completely unexpected to me someone answered.

If you’re interested give a listen to my phone call with albert (1.1 MB .mov). I hope you contact your local police department m’boy. I’m sorry to hear you have a complaint but I am very impressed that you are trying to report it.
