    Exclamation USIC Cellphone Scam - FBI Investigating

    The beginning of 2014 has been rough for USIC and January has been one of the worst months in USIC history. Excessive at-fault damages, poor production numbers, and a record number of accidents/injuries. But it doesn't end there... USIC's cellphone bill was also extremely high. Hackers are calling USIC phones from local numbers and hanging up. And when technicians try to call the number back, USIC cell phones are being charged thousands of dollars. The FBI has requested the number and location of every USIC cell phone. It is unclear if USIC has provided names, home addresses, or other personal information of USIC employees.

    If you do not recognize the phone number, DO NOT call back.

    This scam has been around for a while. Usually they tell you to call and confirm you won a prize and such then you realize when you get your bill that you were routed to a long distance number that charges, sometimes, up to $2-3K a minute! That money you have to now pay goes to the people who called you in the first place.
