[6-22-2009] WARNING - LOCAL TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT - READ THIS!
Ignore all phone calls from this name/number: TeleEurope BV (517) 931-2472
There is a Dish Network scam going around the area. They call you up offering a fantastic deal. Then they say you don't have to pay anything up front, they just want to do a quick credit check to see if you qualify. DO NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION OVER THE PHONE! These scam artists are trying to steal your identity by asking for the last four digits of your social security number and your date of birth. Once they have that information, say goodbye to your bank account.
If you want Dish Network services in your home, we suggest that you call them up directly and ask them what kind of deals you can get. Never give out any information to scam artists who call you up asking for your social security number or date of birth.
