Here are the most annoying spam numbers that have been harassing US citizens during the last week:
1. 3604615083 from Port Angeles with a tellows score of 7
2. 7574479265 from Norfolk with a tellows score of 8
3. 07788209043 mobile phone number with a tellows score of 9
Luckily, the phone preacher did not return so far and, of course, we hope that our work contributed to make an end to this nuisance.
But there are other spammers and scammers only waiting for you to pick up the phone. Both numbers on rank 1 and 2 were one rank lower last week.
There are no new reports on last week’s spam number 1. The only thing we can say for sure is that this is an automated dialer.
We have got very useful comments on the scammer on rank 2. Everybody watch out, this is a number phishing for information!
Text sd Please contact 7574479265 BofA 435603XX Card Issue. I don’t have a BofA card. Sounds fishy to me.

Scam trying to get Bank of America account information. New version of scam tried about 2 weeks ago.
And finally mchoate had fun with this number:
someone that is trying to get debit/credit card numbers. it is a scam. I called BOA. they took the information. when you call the number back it ask for you to put in your cc/dc. I had fun with it and just put in random numbers… about 50 times! Then I BLOCKED their text.
Did the PPI scam wave already reach the US? So far, we have only heard of this happening in the UK. The 3rd most wanted spam number is offering clients to claim back money from their PP-insurance. Read more about this scam method on our UK blog.
