Posing as FBI saying 'your Social Security number has been linked to illegal activities and the Social Security Administration has suspended your Social Security Number' then the recording states to call them at the number they leave in Voice Mail. I had answered the first couple times and every time it was a foreign accent and so I looked up the number "SCAMLIST" the third time I told that the number they were calling me from originated by Google/Skype, and they hung up. Then just recently was called again 27 times from the same number in one day from that number again all going to my voice mail.

The scammer called on my cell phone and said they are an officer with the FBI. He stated I was wanted in a murder investigation and repeated my home address to me. Then stated he needed me to repeat my social security number to him so he knew I was who I said I was so he could release sensitive case information to me. I told him no and hung up on him. I immediately called the police department and they informed me it was a scam.

I'm contacting you through email however; I feel it's best and convenient way to reach you. Let me explain why I am contacting you. I'm Brad Carpenter, United States New Appointed

Fraud Investigator, I work with the United States Fraud Unit of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID). I specialize in Background Investigation of funds which include [COMPENSATION/INHERITANCE FUNDS OR NEXT OF KIN,Consignment Box, Lotto® JACKPOT, LOANS] and I noticed that you have been receiving numerous emails from people who claims to have funds coming to you but I advise that if you're still in communication with any of them on issue of funds however, you're hereby advised to stop every communication right now because those people has being investigated and confirmed to be fraud.

I wish to announce our successful investigation which was carried out few days ago; I guess it will interest you to know why this investigation was conducted. For your information,

it was truly confirmed that you have 100% Legitimate unpaid transaction and you have every right to claim this funds as you're been confirmed to be the right beneficiary of the said amount $7.5 Million USD COMPENSATION/INHERITANCE FUNDS OR NEXT OF KIN however, Due to the delay of getting this funds to you, your funds has now been increased to $10.5 Million USD approved for payment by Office of the Presidency here in United States.

I'm informing you this today because I came to notice that you're not communicating with a legitimate person who is in charge of getting these funds to you. This announcement

has to be made open to you however because you may have being swindled by those unscrupulous people whom you have sent money in the course of getting one fund or the other which is not real and for this reason, I have decided to help you get your funds directly from the Republic of Benin with the help of US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) here in NC United States because your Legitimate funds remains unpaid. The only thing delaying this unpaid fund from getting to you is because there is a fee we need you to pay. You need to obtain your Paper Work which will cost you US $155 Dollars. And immediately you make the payment , we will deliver your fund to your home address without any delay.

I want to know if you're interested in receiving your unpaid legitimate funds value $10.5 Million USD however, I will only be of help if you agreed to follow my instructions.

NOTE; This will cost you US$155 dollars.

If you're really interested in receiving your unpaid $10.5 Million USD, I advise that you get back to me immediately. All I need is your cooperation and understanding.
