The callers wanted her to pay first, with either a debit card or a Green Dot card from Walmart. She says, "He wanted my card number. I didn't want to give him that kind of stuff, and he told me if I did go down there I would have to stay on the phone with him until I got down there. I would have to pay him $180 and then I would get my $7000."
Plus the callers had heavy accents, despite one man claiming to be Sam Adams.
Weaver hopes others can learn from her experience. "Teenagers aren't as experienced," she says, "so they think little things like this actually happen and they'll fall for it."
Better Business Bureau representatives say this is the first time they have heard of this type of call, but admit it sounds fishy. Parents are encouraged to talk to their kids about giving out personal information.
