If you've ever gotten an anonymous call from someone who promised to help you get a credit card with a fake credit card info then you are not alone. These callers may try to get your credit card information by telling you that they are law enforcement officials or other people who need to see your credit information for some reason, like protecting themselves.
In order to find out the source of your fake credit card info you can always check online. Look on sites such as Better Business Bureau or even on online white pages. You should also look at credit history, recent paychecks, credit card statements and any other credit information. You may want to ask other people if they have ever received any sort of phone calls from an anonymous caller, or look on your local phone book under “beware of callers” and try to trace who called.
If the caller has tried to get your credit card information by phone you can usually tell them that you'll call them back, or that you have looked at their website and don't think it looks legitimate. This can be a good way to put an end to these types of calls, as there are plenty of legitimate sites that will only ask for your name and address.
If you can't stop the calls, you may want to just let them keep on calling, and hope that you won't get any credit card information stolen. Of course this isn't an ideal situation and there are other ways to stop these types of calls.
For example, by searching for free credit reports online you can find out what's reported on your report and what information is reported on your credit. Once you know this information you can go to the websites of the three credit bureaus and request copies of your reports so that you can see what's in there.
If you need to get credit card info with a fake credit card info then don't be afraid to call back and talk to a real person. They'll be more than willing to give you the details of what's reported on your credit report.
Don't forget about a credit card that's lost, too. If you lost one but you found a way to apply for a new one it's not a huge deal. Just make sure that you're applying for a card that's going to be used for purchases that you actually use and are going to pay off at the end of the month.
Credit cards can help you do things . . . . . . that you might not otherwise be able to afford, like go on vacation, or buy a new car. But if you use your credit card incorrectly then you can really put yourself at risk.
