Pass on our experience. This is scary.
We fear that someone has been viewing our icloud photos, our computers and iPhones and iPad and Apple TV. We found some very unusual activity on our iPhones and iPads and Macbook. Users have been added that we did not authorize. Emails are getting trashed that have not been read. Then, this happened on May 9th and 10th 2022.
Someone walked into the AT&T Wireless Store at 3 Times Square and purchased 6 new iPhone 13s. They put the tab on my AT&T Wireless account. Global Fraud Management completely ignored the fact that our personal security had been compromised. They merely refunded the 6 lines. They did nothing further to find out who stole the phones, where did they go, and how did the person get access to my account.
How did this happen?
Who was it?
We need to know for our safety.
99% of an AT&T clerk’s function is to verify the customer first. They use a secret passcode. The secret passcode is an obvious breach. Every time you walk in to an AT&T Store, the AT&T clerk will make you say your password out loud. They could give that number to a friend. If they know the customer’s Apple ID, and if you upgrade your iPhone, then the employee takes your phone puts your sim chip in their phone. Their phone can now be used for authentication. It will take a few tries but eventually they will get it. That what we think happened to us.
We reported this store as potential for fraud. We turned in our iPhone 11 to an employee who seemed really shady. She took the iphone and was gone for 30 minutes. We never received credit for the phone and our iCloud was hacked shortly thereafter.
Mos Def wrote and said this song, “no matter where your family are”
Joy doesn’t talk to her sister, Sarah and dad since 2019. She called them. But I often ask her about them. I think about Joy’s family and about Brandon Weber because he texted that he knew where my mom worked in Nevada. We rented from Brandon because he was advertising no credit checks. Rudin Management and Brandon sent us emails asking for our financials and social security number on their sublease agreement.
When I look at our iCloud photos and images, well, It’s hard to describe how I’m feeling. “feelings feeling” is what music, art love and the Jedi are about.
My wife is very very upset by what’s happened- the fraud, the identity theft, the iphones, and weird emails from AT&T letter head.
I had been applying for jobs in Las Vegas. We saw an ad on Craigslist for an apartment in New York City. We called the number listed in the ad. We talked to a man on the phone who said his name was Brandon. We were excited to get back to New York. Joy’s mother was from Long Island and I was ready to get back to work in the Big Apple.
Couple things about this Brandon. Joy looked at the agreement and Brandon or someone forged our names to extend the lease (or something like that.) Joy is the real estate queen. When Brandon demanded that we leave, the story that Brandon told us was different than what Rudin’s lawyer wrote . He said he was going to be evicted unless he agreed to leave or something like that. I can’t remember exactly the deal that Brandon and Rudin came up with but Weber got to keep the lease.
Brandon and Rudin refused to give us a mailbox key. Brandon was collecting our mail. Rudin still sends emails to us even though Brandon wrote to Rudin that we were no longer a resident. He made us feel so uncomfortable, that we moved out and turned in our keys the next day. Brandon gave Rudin instructions to give our mail and packages to him. We were out about $6000. We got a lawyer. Brandon was trying to intimidate Joy to pay him another $8,500. He scared us. Brandon texted that he would hire someone to find where she was staying which scared me. We had to pay an attorney, Alan Goldberg, to write a letter to Brandon. We printed out the texts that Brandon sent. We gave the printed copies of Brandon’s texts to Alan J. Goldberg. We asked him what we could do to get our money back. He said, “oh, you won’t get that back”. Huh? We showed him Brandon’s texts about my mom, and where Brandon slut-shamed a US Air Force Airman. Brandon called Joy a whore. He tried to scare my mom. Brandon says that his family are very educated, wealthy peoplex He asked if we’d ever heard of Met Life.
Brandon’s behavior is atrocious. We had to get a lawyer because Brandon would not stop harassment, He texted at all hours. We still get frightened to this day every time we try to write something about AT&T, Rudin, Brandon, and that’s very important— .
