Thank you Faith, I have spoken to the fraud department already this morning and given them all of the information. Everything has been taken care of. Thank you for this forum as it helped greatly to to know exactly what I was dealing with. The person I spoke to was of great help reassuring me that no one can get to my personal information in my online account. I have also filed a report with the FTC. I urge everyone to be vigilant with their online presence, I have learned from my mistake. Thanks again!

These guys are still at it and more sophisticated than ever. I suspect a leak in security at ATT/Direct TV as they had way too many account details. I didn't fall for it, but it was close. I contacted Direct TV and they admit it is a serious scam going on. Ebay should be after them as well as they say they 'partner' with Ebay of this. Report it to the Feds. I did.

Since most of these originate outside the US there is not much that can be done by US company,  You would be surprised at the info on the dark web that has been hack.
