Quick Update to my Scam Call Situation

Hello WA friends and community.

I just wanted to do a quick follow up to my previous post about the most convincing scam call I've ever received. If you didn't get a chance to read it, you can do so here:

I decided to try a Google Reverse Phone Number Lookup for the 800 number I was given to supposedly speak to a supervisor at Rocky Mountain Power, (a Utah-based power company).

The search didn't provide a lot of information, but it did provide one telltale sign that this is, indeed, a scam number.

The Google map screenshot that is my cover image for this post is where this number is apparently located, which is somewhere in England.

I highly doubt that Rocky Mountain Power has their headquarters in England!

Furthermore, I never called my power company about this problem, (as the power hadn't been shut off as threatened that night when I got home from work) and now several days later, of course my power is still on, no problems or disconnects as was threatened on the call.

Anyway, just more evidence that the call was, indeed, a scam call and hopefully my posts will help others who may receive a similar call.

Thanks for reading.

Kevin

Good thing you were able to dodge that scam, Kevin. It's very common for these scammers to be located overseas. One never knows where the calls really originate.

Certainly confirmation of the scam Kevin, but Stamford in central England is a fantastic little town which I have visited on more than one occasion!!

I've always wanted to go to the UK for a visit but could never afford the trip. :D

Well... keep up the fantastic progress my friend and you'll be able to afford one in no time!! :-)

Right you are! :D

These scammers are just to good at what they do. Iโ€™m glad you questioned it

Wow, Kevin! You definitely dodged a bullet. You must remember though, that many call centers for companies are located in other countries because it is sometimes cheaper for them to do so. Just a thought!

That's true. Good point. ๐Ÿ‘

Thanks, Kevin!
