But after getting 3 phone calls, exactly 1 hour apart, from an obvious text to speech program (which by the was not even close to correctly prounouncing my city of Leominster) telling me that my accound has been suspended and asking me to call and re-enable my bank account. After filing reports to my local PD and the Internet Crime Complaint Center, I ask slashdot why there can't be some monkey trained to simply shut off these fraudlent numbers, as soon as they are reported and verified fraudulent. The solution seems so simple, but nobody is doing it. I ask why.
Meanwhile, the scammer's line remains active and is phishing unknown number of people and getting just what it is asking. Have some fun and call 704-935-4534 and enter some random numbers. I was surprised it didn't even check for validity."
