(503) 403-2691 (7 Complaints)

FORMER FED Recently Wrote: There are two main numbers the scammers use for this spoof scam. (A spoof scam is when they spoof a phone number, trying to make it appear that the call came from a certain number when in fact it did not.) this number, 503-403-2691 is NOT Wells Fargo, and the other number that you will receive calls from if you ignore the 503 number, is 877-647-8551. First course of action is to register your phones, all of them, house and cell phones, on the FTC's Do Not Call Registry. If you feel that the calls are automated, robocalls or recordings then you can start reporting them to the FTC right after you registered. If there is a person on the other end, then you must wait 30 days to start reporting them. This is a grey area, but it's best to find a way to start reporting them right away. Then, report them to the US Atty general as well. If you wish, hire an attorney whom you know to pursue damages against the offender, and you may be able to get a portion of the money they will be sued for. If an "internet attorney" tries to tell you that they will get you $1,000 per call, be skeptical. Ask them where they get the money from. They can't answer you, and run out of answers after your first question. In fact, the phone number being reported here as well as the 877 spam number are not affiliated with Wells Fargo or any business. Yet, there is an attorney who makes claims that these numbers are Wells Fargo, and that they will get you $1,000 for each call Wells Fargo has made to you through these two numbers, or other numbers. Buyer beware. If you feel comfortable giving an attorney you don't know all of your information, and enter into an agreement with them sight unseen, then, by all means try it. You may or may not be successful. But I won't do it. Never ever give anyone who calls you your social security number. Never call a blind number (as you did) and give them any information (which you refused to give them your info... kudos to you for being wise) and suspect every call you receive on your phone as a potential scam. Look online to see if your state is a one party or two party state (referring to whether you are allowed to record phone calls without the knowledge of the other party- a one party state- or if you must inform them they are being recorded- a two party state. Then, especially if you are in a one party state (or, if you are using a cell phone based out of a one party state no matter what your physical location is), record the conversation you have with them without notifying them of the recording, and get all the ammunition you need to pursue charges on many levels. If you are calling from a two party state or from a phone based in a two party state no matter what your location, then you must notify them that they are being recorded. They will be less cooperative, and more unwilling to continue their scam if they know they know they are being recorded. Hint: It helps to have a phone that has an area code for a state that is a one party notification state. The absolute best way to record is to use a second cell phone, using the video to record it, all the while panning to the face of the phone to get video of the number you are calling, or the number of the caller who is calling you, on your video. Video is an easy format to pass to authorities, and also easy to upload to your FB or YT channel while you are seeking legal help. Video also serves many purposes, it can verify date (panning to a news channel on TV for a moment, or videotaping the front page of today's newspaper) and location (panning around to verify your location where the call is being made) and, furthermore, video double verifies the audio. If you zoom to your face, maybe just mouth only but not your entire face, to protect your privacy; panning your face verifies your end of the conversation. Spammers and scammers do not like being recorded. Just keep that little fact to yourself while you do it if you can legally do it. Calling Wells Fargo will not help much unless you speak with their technician department. Calling government agencies or making online reports is the best route. A final avenue is to record the call, wherein you tell the offender to stop calling you, to never call you again. If they call again, you have that recording to make a copy of to give your local police when you make a report to press charges. Try every other avenue first, but use this as an effective last resort.
