***Do NOT answer this number OR give out your information, no matter how official he sounds!***
He contacted us early this morning (9 AM), claiming to be part of the VISA fraud Department and was reporting a suspicious $270 purchase made on E-Bay the night before. He apparently 'had' our address and asked us to confirm it. We responded that he now had the authorization from us to cancel any charges immediately since we have never made an on-line purchase of any sort. He then stated that if we were not the ones to have placed the order, to recite our credit card number to him so he may cancel the charge and remove any attached fees. I said I would contact my bank branch directly on the matter and he refused, stating he was in fact a VISA representative and that he would authorize the cancellation as soon as we provided the number. (IF he was a real agent, he would have been understanding and allowed us to go, but he kept trying to keep us on!) When I refused yet again, he then hung up. Guess he knew he was not going to get anywhere with us.
