(617) 861-4479 Another Phone Scam You Need To Be Aware Of

What is it with these telemarketing phone scams? Just last week we told you about a telephone scam involving the number (202) 480-5620. Now we are getting reports from you and last night even on my own home phone about a new scam that shows up on your caller I.D. as  (617) 861-4479. Here is how the scam works.

The automated voice on the other end of the line tells you that this is not a sales call. It is a call from ESG Marketing. They want to take 30 seconds of your time for a short survey about our nations debt crisis. Here are the questions used in the bogus survey:

 Rate 1-5, 5 being best, 1 being worst.  
1.  Performance of Democrats on debt crisis.
2.  Performance of Republicans on debt crisis.
3.  Performance of Pres. Obama on debt crisis. 

In return for your opinion after the survey you will be given a cruise for two to the Bahamas.

Do NOT answer the survey, Do NOT give out your information if you do take the survey. This is yet another attempt to gain information about you and your family.

I am speculating this gathered information will then be sold to other marketing companies or scammers for future attempts to get into your bank account. If you see the number 617-861 4479 on your caller I.D. just let the voice mail get it.

You might also visit the U.S. Government’s Don’t Call website and make sure that your home and cell numbers are blocked against receiving this kind of phone solicitation.
