Total money lost $4.95
Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter

I just called this number to get information about my stimulus check. The guy pretended to be a its agent and he asked me to verify all of my information. And so I did. I provided him with card info, email, and address information. Throughout the call my card was charged for 4.95 with something called phi body shapers and the guy gave me a number that didn't work to call about it. He rushed me off the phone as I told him about the card charge. And now every time I call they hand up the phone.

Type of a scam Phishing

Got a call from this number with a recording stating the call was from irs and my irs account (ssdi) had been breached and to press one for further instructions. i did not press anything other than end, but this is clearly a scam to get personal information to steal money. The irs does not and would not contact anyone this way.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Call was answered and a recording claimed that fraud was perpetrated with my Social Security Number, and to avoid "federal prosecution originating in the state of Texas by local Court or Magistrate" that I should act immediately. Then it asked if I wanted to find out more about this to push #1 on my phone. I did that and a person answered. There were sounds of a call center in the back ground and the person answered Internal Revenue Service". This is clearly a scam because it take hours on the phone to talk to anyone at the IRS office. I told him that I knew he was a scam and to never call me again. I then hung up on them.

I receive from George Penn, said he was with the IRS and my social security number was used by someone stopped on the El Paso border with drugs and they were using my social security number to wire money.

Roberto Rios called from 347-329-1403 and said I had won 96000 thru American Sweepstakes he provided me with a 5 digit Claim number and wanted me to call 888-600-6078 and they would give me a 3 digit claim number and then I needed to call him back. He then said I needed to pay 4750 dollars for the insurance and processing to get it here. I told him I didn't have that kind of money I'm a senior systems on limited income. He then said they have some companies that help sponsor for this and Coke would pay 4050. So then I only had to pay 700 of it. And He said I needed to contact the Financial institution at 866-978-6383 Speak to Craig Patterson I called him and he said it was an amount of 95000. But you have to pay the 4750 to pay for the insurance and I would have to fill out 2 forms so they could get the money delivered to me. I told him I don't even have 400 and they have called now 2 days row and about 5 times yesterday and 2 times this morning. He was asking how close I was to getting the 700 I told him I didn't even have a 100 he said he could wait a couple days for me to get it together. I was positive it was a scam. And they said they would have to ship it in. It was a scam.
