I had somebody call me and say that they were a verizon wireless carrier and was with the collections agency to receive a late payment from me. I am aware that I owe verizon so I asked how could I pay the bill.
Since I don't have an active bank account, The person told me to get a money pak card from cvs and call them with the code on the back so that I could pay my bill. Once I tried to use the card, it said that it was empty funds, even though I deposited 250 on the card and the person was only asking for 180. I put extra money on the card because the person told me that I could use the card as a debit card, which definitely isn't true. I'm hurt, disappointed, furious, and mad as *** because that money could have been used on my ACTUAL verizon bill or personal use.
I don't have money AT ALL to be getting stolen from me. Money pak and these scammers need to be stopped !
