    This is most definitely fraudulent! My caller ID listed US Bank and 1-612-492-8369. I do not have any accounts with US Bank so I let it go to voice mail. The caller said he was with Fraud Merchants (not US Bank). He listed the last 4 of my debit card and said he was calling on behalf of my bank and that I needed to call him back immediately at 866-842-5208. I checked my account online and then called my bank. They said they NEVER use third party for fraud notices. They call directly. They suggested I report this to appropriate places. This was very likely a Phishing scam. I've looked this number up online and found more than a dozen different company names for this one number, including one claiming it's a UK company. No legitimate company has that many different names associated with a single phone number. If you get this call, hang up and call your financial institution directly.

      I work at a financial institution that uses a financial service called Elan. This phone number is owned by Elan, which provide services to other financial institutions, one the services they can provide is fraud watch. Elan is a division of    U.S. Bancorp, which also owns US Bank. So you might see many other financial institutions come up when you type in this number online. A lot of small financial institutions will use a service like this because it helps them monitor fraud outside of the bank hours when they don't have the resources to do it themselves. As for the UK company, I cannot replicate your findings on that. I have no issue with anyone refusing to communicate with them and calling the bank directly, can't be too safe!

    This is a legitimate fraud investigative service. They were able to prevent several hundred dollars of fraudulent charges from being made to my account using a stolen debit card number. I returned their call when they left a message and gave them only my name and bank name. They listed the false charges and verified legitimate ones without any assistance from me once I gave them the last 4 of my social and DOB. I didn't give this information until I logged onto my account and saw for myself that one fraudulent charge had been approved. I'm happy that they were legit and doing their job!

    Received a call from this number.    At first I thought it was a scam, but after contacting my bank and looking at my funds I realized that this is a legitimate business fraud prevention company.    
    However, I would check your funds personally to make sure there is loss before giving out any information because they do ask questions to validate who you are.

Thank you for sharing your info with other people.
