Left a voicemail message about "everyone needs to have health insurance".. then I hung up.

- Logan, UT, USA

I recognized it was a scam, but still engaged in the conversation at first as a stupid gag. Didn't give away any information or money, etc.

They claimed to be Cathy from Singapore (working in SF). Sent a pic of a plausibly Singaporean woman eating a pastry at a restaurant. Asked if we knew each other from a work conference or similar event. I said no and marked the conversation as spam

I was woken up to a call i answer not knowing that i was half asleep. I recalled it and i was greeted by a italian sounded man who said they were from louisville ky. Said i have something and i told them idk. I gave them my name and i think birth but then they tryed asking over and over about the bill and when i said family and health my brain could think more after not being tired and i told them i dont trust you and hung up. I ran to a friend of mine where i lived at and she told me to tell yall.

These people called my 73 year old mother today 12/21/22 telling her she's being sued for some vitamins and supplements they claimed that she ordered, which she never did of course. The man on the phone called in Spanish, he had my mother's personal information such as name, phohne number and home address. He spoke in a threatening manner telling my mother she's being sued, that she should get a lawyer and that she will be served in 48hrs. It is obvious they target senior citizens to scared them, make them believe that they are in trouble and that they will be taken to court. This is horrible and this type of scammers should be persecuted for preying on the most vulnerable people.

I was contacted by phone on 6-3-19 and received a voice mail stating there was suspicious activity and they were suspending my social security number and I could press a number to receive more info. I was again called from a different number out of Dallas,TX saying saying there was a warrant for my arrest due to suspicious activity on my social security number. I was to speak to someone immediately or I would be arrested shortly. This was June 17th which happens to be my birthday. Not sure if it is related. I was also leaving the country on 6-3 when I got the first call so I'm not sure if it had something to do with that or not. I did not respond either time.

A recording says, “If you don't return the call, you will have to face the legal consequences.”

First Phone Call 877-457-7765 - no one speaks when you pick up. Second call moments later 609-998-8604 with ID 5045. They ask immediately "Is this (YOUR NAME HERE)?" As soon as you answer "YES" they hang up.

- Saint Paul, MN, USA

This was a telephone scam. They took $9,500 from me. It was a computer support scam. I paid them with gift cards. I have the phone number of somebody connected with this scam: 512-856-7181. How can you help?

I started receiving automated threats that legal action was.being taken against me and.I needed to call them. Then after a.couple of months, as I though it was a scam, I starts receiving messages from an actual person (middle eastern sounding), to call them, as legal action was being taken against me for delinquent credit accounts. This continued and the messages have become more caustic and very unnerving. I finally contact my bank who said they have had several complaints.when this is a scam. I am continuing to reach out to consumer fraud agencies to ensure this a scam, and I can move on.

I got a call from this number, a young man's voice, asking me, "Do you know who this is?" When he couldn't tell me his father's name, I called him on his scam. He told me that he had gone to a funeral in Nebraska and had a car accident and needed money.

I received a call on my home / office phone and the person asked to speak with the owner , I told him I was the owner , he stated that there was no longer a fee to use a visa card , He asked if my address was still the same , I asked him what the call was in reference to and he started MotherF--kin me so I just Laughed at him and hung up . Beware of this phone Number *** *** *** *** ** *** ** *** ** *** ***

An electronic sounding voice leaves this message:

Somewhat garbled at first, then “...you will be taken under custody by local police as there are 4 serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us so that we can discuss about this case before raking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is 917-387-3021. I repeat...

- Rolla, MO, USA

computer voice says I'll be picked up by police if I do not call and work offenses out.

- West Plains, MO, USA

For the last several weeks now, I have been pledged with calls from different

telephone numbers from a recorded messages, saying to press 1 to reach a

live representive and when you do, a individual will come online stating that

you owe a bill and asking if you are this person and what is your social

security no. and so forth. They continue to call even tho they know that your

telephone no. is on the NO CALL LIST. When you call the Attorney General

Office, all you get is excuses and the calls continue coming...…….

The three telephone no's listed below are the latest no's that they have been

using to call me out of several more they also use. I hope there is something

you can do as I don't want to change my two telephone no's as they would

most likely get them to and therefore would be just a waste of time.....

** *** ** *** ** ***

These no's have called my cell no's 10 times in the past 2 days.

I received a recorded voicemail phone message from phone number (7162650417) stating that I had 4 serious allegations against me and if I didnt call back within a certain time frame the local authorities would become involved.

- Mustang, OK, USA

I received a call, when I said hello the female voice asked if she could hear me? I believe I said hello again or may have even said yes. She went on to say she was sorry she was trying get clear her mouth and went on to say I won a free exclusive all paid trip to Orlando, FL, Disneyworld, paid rooms and 3 free meals per day etc when she said you will now be transferred to a representative, I hung up! The phone call was placed on Sunday, January 29th at 3:10am using a local number of 405-835-3198. I did call by pay card today however my payday is this coming Friday February 3rd, I will definitely check my card at 6:00pm

- Washington, DC, USA

Receiving multiple calls a day from this # 202-971-8914 asking personal questions. Stating that there's a $ 7000 personal grant from the United States and then hangs up the phone. I believe that this is a scam that needs immediate attention. A.S.A.P.
