Scam Alert........
« on: April 18, 2014, 06:46:35 PM »
The Union Workers Credit Services Inc has once again sent out a mass mailing to folks hoping to lure in the gullible. 

I've put up a link so you can review what others, including the Better Business Bureau have said and  you can also visit other sites about this scam.  Hard to believe the place is still going after the outcry last time out.  But then again...isn't the BBB part of the Government?  No wonder nothing is being done.

The BBB is not a government agency.

The BBB is a non-profit organization with a mission of increasing trust in the marketplace. Sometimes people think BBB can “shut down” bad companies—BBB can’t, not directly. Companies receiving a plethora of complaints or a serious pattern are referred to state Attorney Generals and the Federal Trade Commission for this type of action.

When life gives you lemons, freeze them and throw them back at the bastards. :hawk:

But in the end....the Government is asked to get involved sooner or later....correct.   I wasn't sure if they were part of the Gov't.  or not which is why I said "isn't" with a question mark LOL.  Shows you how many times I've ever had to deal with them.

Dealing with any agency is dicey at best in my opinion.

99.9% of any company name that ends with "Services Inc" is a scam! I get phone scams all the time; most hang up when I answer the phone because of the way I do so.

"Gallipolis city morgue, you stab em and we'll slab em! We're running a three for one special today, how may I help you?"

Most of the time that works, but some of the ones with less active brain cells stay on the phone. I then torment them further. Love the Indian scammers.... They get the "I can not get to my computer because my goat is chatting up Madonna and he might get a chubby!"

It really is very entertaining! The last one called me an MF'er and hangs up on me...he never did call back. One said F-you and then hangs up....My cop friend replied that he never heard of that company...I said " Oh yes; it's F-U International...you can buy stock in it online!" He was rolling laughing.
