Last year, almost to the day, my husband's and my phone number were ported from our phones and was used to gain access to our bank accounts and loans, as well as our credit cards. It was an absolute nightmare to get the numbers back and regain control of our finances.
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, it happened again. This time my husband realized what happened right away and called Cricket, but they were of NO HELP. They kept asking him if he was sure that I (his wife) didn't port the number or maybe it was someone else he knew. What the heck is that supposed to solve? No one at Cricket seems to know or care how to protect our accounts! Now whoever took my husband's number is getting a "replacement" credit card of ours and a balance transfer of $8,000 on another card! We haven't even hit 24 hours yet of this mess.
Cricket is the worst at protecting its customers and even more so at helping them! How is it that easy for a stranger to pull a scam and steal a phone number while being impossible to prove that you, the account holder, DIDN'T AUTHORIZE IT!!
Cricket has the responsibility and the obligation to investigate and do everything they can to help protect their customers who PAY them for their service!!
Phone calls to Customer Service went nowhere and I want answers and solutions.
