  1. called to cancel my fake subscription and this gal told me that I could get this protection for only $9.50 a month. She went on to tell me what they cover. I told her I’d have to talk to my husband and would get right back to them. Googled this compant and found out that they take seniors over 55 for a ride. So I called them back again and this guy answered and said he has cancelled my subscription. I have no way of recording on my phone so it was just verbal.

    1. Glad you managed to escape the spider’s web. If only everyone else was so lucky. Sad that these people target the most vulnerable people in the world. Be sure to tell everyone you know so they can avoid these scammers too!

  2. My husband recently received a postcard from TFS ID Pro stating, “URGENT NOTICE ”

    “Our records indicate that we have a reward in your name.”

    “We are holding $100.00 in savings for you as a member benefit, good at most retail or online stores – in your name! Please call us toll free at 1-800-377-4541, for details on how to claim your reward as soon as possible.”

    He has received many scam letters and phone calls in the past. Luckily I was able to convince him not to reply to this one.
