Scam.

They called my cell and when I answered nobody was there. When I called back it was a busy signal. I put 'em on my blocked caller list with my AT&T call protect. Good riddance telemarketers... I think I will buy a call blocker!

Called 3 times today within 15 minutes. Left voice mail each time stating call is for [my name inserted], something along the lines of "don't hang up". Total bull.

Caller ID shows "UNKNOWN NAME" and the number. They left no message. I have blocked my number (from my local exchange) and called back using my work landline. The call automatically goes to my voicemail but it is a recorded message saying I have dialed a number that has been disconnected or is not in service. All calls that go out of service are the result of a cyber crime ring spoofing disconnected/changed phone numbers to attempt to collect personal data and credit card information. DO NOT RETURN ANY CALLS FROM THIS SCAMMER. They are fishing for personal and credit card information.

Same here, called my work phone number and left no message.


Report for 1-2407840888 - 2020-03-04
Message left as IRS calling to inform me I would be arrested due to four serious allegations against me with the Internal Revenue Services. If I failed to respond to this notice (or any notices) I could be taken into custody by the local police as there are four alleged serious allegations against me. Called back and the person stated to be with the IRS, that I called them to the IRS at the number that was left. When I was given an actual phone number, I was informed that I could call the local police office when I am located. I am aware of the scam so I told them I am working on blocking their number.

Same as the others, but when I finally could understand the woman's voice, it said there was a judgment against me and I owed money. I am not behind in any legal action and she was very difficult to understand. I asked her to mail me proof she was from the court and she said "I don't have to do that because I am not a debt collector. I am going to call the court." I told her since her calls were recorded, I wouldn't give her any personal information so she should look it up. She hung up on me!

I received a call from 817-307-0159, and they left a message that I was due a refund and it was imperative that I called them back at this number to get a refund. They called me at 1:23pm Central, Friday, August 5, 2019-I called the # later in the afternoon-but as is always the case: They don't even leave a name of the business or what they are calling for. It is clear this is a scam. After reading the previous reports here, I would say that I recommend NOT answering or calling back.

I am getting more and more calls from out of state numbers daily. I know no one in California so I have no idea why I keep getting these calls but when I get them I just let them go to voice mail and delete them. I am so tired of this. I know it can't be the government sending these out cause they are just wasting your money so no action could be taken about it.
