Hi , I have ALOT of info to share and I need help as to what my next steps should be . For the past 3 weeks I have received calls daily , sometimes 3 times per day ! From the same Muslim sounding man wanting me to send him 120.00 thru Green Dot because I have been approved for a loan up to 5,000.00 but I have to send money first .
Yeah , ok I knew right away that was a scam and I reported him and the number . He goes by Cash Advance , Capital Cash Lend , Fast loan , 1 hour loan , EZ Cash Loan and Usa Pay Day . He represents his name as Sam , Jay and Mohammed .

Well, everyday I would tell him to stop calling that I have reported him and the next day he would just call again most were prepaid cell phones but the main phone he would call me on was 516-561-9411 which last night I found out was Burger King in Stream Valley New York ! Every time they call you they are phishing .

Last night I received an alert telling me I had just spent a good sum of money off my PayPal Card at Burger King in Stream Valley Ny. I immediately called my card company , disputed the charges(not hard since I live in Ga) , and shut down that card.

I called the Burger King hoping that maybe they could catch the person that was using a fake card made but when the man answered the phone I immediately recognized him as being the same man that was calling me and harrassing me everyday telling me I was approved for a loan ! I called him out on it and I recorded the phone call .

I hung up called the police and had a report filed , and I called Burger King Corporate Head Quarters and left a voice recorded complaint . Now I am at a loss on what to do , Apparently the guy is manager there or something for him to have access to customer info and the time to privately make phone calls off the franchise phone to scam people .
Just to give yall a heads up on all the numbers used are of course the main one at burger king : 516-561-9411 917-341-9211 and 212-201-0747 these are the top listed and then uses these numbers also 202-621-2455 779-456-7901 818-850-7861 815-388-1040 and 850-610-1040.

Apparently he has phished enough to find out my bank info and get a phony duplicate card made . What do I do ? Isnt Burger King somewhat responsible since he scammed me there and used the business to operate illegally ? ? ? ? What do I do next ?

I am sorry for the situation you are in. It sounds like you are dealing with a scammer. I have to say that this is outside of what we deal with. We do not deal with Credit Card scams or Phishing. This topic will give you some helpful information and guidance.

Because your information appears to have been phished, you need to contact your bank and monitor your bank account. You need to recall any information financial information you have given and change account numbers.

You do need more help than we can provide to you here.
