my heritage family history - selling I used them to do a genealogy DNA test and now they are hounding me to pay subscription. Its interesting that while I do have an account with My Heritage, they do NOT have my mobile number. So where did they get it ?
I just asked them to delete my account entirely as I don't trust them because they have got my number from another source. Despite having an account, I have never made a purchase with them.
I called back number (03) 8595 9802 reached IVR for a company called My Heritage. Caller: My Heritage
Said I had a pretty impressive Family Tree (246 people). I knew she was going to ask me to subscribe/pay money to continue using it; so I hung up.
Me too! Caller: My Heritage
These people are persistent - call nearly every day and hang up if no answer, very annoying!
My Heritage advising database breach and to change password. Caller: Woman
Claimed to be from My Heritage, suspect this is a scam but how did she get my mobile number ?
Caller: My Heritage
We are past members but cannot afford membership - several dozen calls now to resubscribe - the last was at 12:30am!!!
same happened to me last night. sent me an emailed and wanted me to click the link to get the 60% off price that was only available for 2hrs. he knew all my details also. 3 unwanted calls I can confirm that this number is connected to My Heritage. A call placed to My Heritage 1800 731 768, confirmed that notes were left on my account about the offer he spoke to me about. Some parts of My Heritage can only be accessed by My Heritage and the Account holder! Caller: My Heritage? but unsure
The caller did have a lot of info. about my (My Heritage page) including that I took a free trial a few years ago and how many people in my tree, Also the current discounted price, he was a bit pushy and had an Indian accent (I declined the offer)
Caller: Subcontinent d*ckhead
Methinks scammer as I have not had account the time he said only just done DNA recently usually I hear Indian Pakey accent I tell them to f*ck off straight away no getting my details ??????????????
Can't be legal telemarketers as we are on the DNC register. Unknown caller diverted to answering machine. Number came up on the landline which I did not answer, then went to message bank, and no message left. Then immediately rang on my mobile . It came up all red, and stating 'scam' ...... again no message left. I can only assume from the above that it was My Heritage..... !!!! I called back number (03) 8595 9802 reached IVR for the My Heritage, Touching base with current subcriber (me). Update subscription offer.
Question might be My Heritage do not have my landline number !
And, the number calling was not the official My Heritage number which is a 1800 number.
