    I have a credit card opened without my concent. After many hours on the
    phone with the bank and credit org. the matter was resolved and the account
    closed. During this time I asked to find out where the fraud was coming
    from. The best they could come up with is it was started in the
    Philippines. I did not think much about this until I called *2 on my sprint
    phone and got a voice not of this country. I asked where they where at and
    guess where? the Philippines

    This has just happened (call center in the philippines)since the merger
    with nextel. Sprint giving their customers info to a thirdworld country
    where US laws do not apply. I have to check my credit report daily now and
    any sprint customers need to do the same.

    Just a note I could not get a customer service rep in the US after 2.5
    hours of tring.

    Alway ask for someone in the US when calling customer support for any
    company. I did this with Delta a few weeks ago and wala I got a woman in
    Atlanta,Ga. and got helped right away.

    be aware when you give your personal info over the phone to what country it
    is going to!!!!!!!

    So, lemme get this straight ... You add 1 plus 1, and get 26 with your
    circular reasoning here. What confirmation do you actually have, to say the
    two incidents are related?

    I would think that if the OP happened to make a credit card payment over
    the phone and gave out his credit number to a Sprint rep in the
    Phillipines (BAD idea by the way, especially since you can pay your bill
    online, or by Vision Browser, and clearly the OP has 'net access), then
    the circumstancial evidence is pretty convincing.

    I don't know what making a credit card payment has to do with anything.
    The OP stated that a new credit card account was opened in his name, not
    that there were fraudulent charges on an existing account.

    I don't think you can open a credit card in someone else's name just by
    having a credit card number. You would need the SSN; information which
    obviously SPCS gathers for each account holder. Whether that number is
    displayed in SPCS's CRM/CS systems, I don't know (but I would hope it
    only shows the last four numbers).

    WOW you got me trolling for spammers

    I would just ignore the post and not do the credit check.

    This did happen and I did not say that I know sprint leaked my info, but
    you have to admit it is strange that the 2 events are so close.

    Oh and I don't read this or any other news group every day. I guess I
    have other things to do with my time. Some do like to live on the nntp
    side of life.
