URGENT WARNING FROM BILL'S AUTO WORKS

Post by Bills Auto Works »

Hello Everyone,

This is URGENT...My email that I have had for my business for 30+ years (billsautoworks1@aol.com) has been HACKED & is being used to screw fellow car guys. I had a call from a gentleman just a few minutes ago asking me if I employed a Paul Mitchell with the phone number (770)731-8978 who was using my email address on USHIP. This gentleman booked a transport with him & is now out his money!

If you call that (770) number it routes you to a FAKE AOL recovery & restore number (which is how I originally scammed hacked)

PLEASE folks....I would NEVER have an accunt on USHIP, so that is NOT me & also PLEASE do NOT accept or respond to my billsautoworks1@aol.com email address for a week or so. I cannot view it or respond to it. AOL Fraud Dept is supposedly working on it

I have some suspicions as to who is behind it, but no proof.

I HAVE MADE MY REPUTATION WITH HONESTY & INTEGRITY & THIS BREAKS MY HEART THAT SOMEONE IS SOILING MY NAME. I AM TRULY SORRY TO ANYONE WHO GETS INCLUDED IN THE SCAM!

EVERYONE is welcome to call if they have any questions! (216)832-8697

God Bless

Hello Everyone,

I am very sorry that I missed updating everyone after this was all taken care of. I honestly thought I had posted on every forum that everything was back to normal with my business email & phone number about a week after it happened. I had updated my ad in the buy/sell section, but forgot to update this thread. Also thanks to Mike for making this a "Sticky" so that no other folks got screwed!!!!

With help from AOL, Verizon & especially Uship everything was restored back to normal. I still would never have an account on Uship (too busy dealing directly with customers) but they really seemed to care that a scammer was operating on their site, shut him down & investigated quickly!

God Bless
