    Nancy BT reported VISA Payment scam with the number ‎01617680131 as Harassment calls

    7/13/24, 6:43 PM via Android App

    Asked if I had purchased train tickets with a Visa card and instructed me to press a transfer button to speak with another representative if I hadn't. After checking my bank account and finding no such purchase, I concluded that pressing the transfer button would likely have led to a scam attempt.

    A woman claimed to be from UK Homeowners and said my number was in their database. She inquired about the age of my property and whether I was buying or renting. When I asked the purpose of the call, she mentioned funding for windows and doors. Upon learning that I was renting, she informed me that I wouldn't be eligible for their offer anyway.
