How does one remove themselves from scam lists like this? I received the same text message and receive other similar ones several times a week.

I did not pick up on this scam. Is there anything I can do to undo the information I put in?

@ashleyfc All you can do is cancel whatever card you used.

Be careful... according to info from Bank of America, even if I cancel my credit card, the continuing charges will follow onto the new card for up to 12 months.

I must contact the vendor and ask to cancel the ongoing subscription which is tied into the initial $5.95 payment.

That should not happen unless the new card is issued with the same number. In the case of fraudulent charges, a new credit card number is issued and all charges with the old number are denied. At least that’s the way my credit cards have always worked. If B of A does it differently, I would not be using them.

Yes. If you ever respond, use CREDIT CARD ONLY such as CITI (or other)

If you identify a scam, go online immediately and report card 'STOLEN'

they will give a list of purchases and you will have to check off the purchases that are BOGUS, that way, they are marked the moment they try to further access the account.

You will have to answer some quick questions and then your account will be immediately closed and a new card and account will be issued will all new numbers.

This will effectively shut down any outside use.
