My 94 year old mother received a call saying she needed to pay $200 or her prescriptions will be cancelled. She did not pay and instead spoke with me, her adult son. She does not get prescriptions from any source other than her local Walgreens.

I've received several calls claiming a company is no longer in business and that I am due a refund. I called the number but was provided no details other than I was owed money. I provided them no information and ended the call.

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

I answered my cellphone and the caller immediately said "you are on a recorded line, can you hear me". I instinctively answered "yes". I had heard about a scam using this technique and I hung up. I did hear the caller say something about a Caribbean cruise.

Victim Location 98036
Type of a scam Phishing

A contractor contacted me via phone and left a message to say he had just missed a call from me. I replied via text that I had not called him. He sent a screenshot of his phone log with my number having called him. I responded with a screenshot of my recent calls - there was only the one call back from him on my log, and no record on my phone that I called him. We both agreed this was worrisome and should be reported. I am worried someone out there is calling contractors using my phone number!!

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I was taking an order when someone called me saying they were from postmates and I was being scammed. I gave them my information (they made it seem very legit) and they got in to my account and changed my information and stole money straight from my account.

Victim Location 34685
Type of a scam Employment

I received a phone call from someone claiming to be a job recruiter. The recruiter claimed to be named Carmen. My iPhone indicated that the phone number was from St. Petersburg, Florida. When they mentioned the career center name there was a skip in the call for a beat, meaning the line seemed to go out for half a second as their company name was supposedly given. I was asked generic job recruiting questions and casually gave out information concerning my first and last name, my e-mail address, and my phone number. It was not until 6 minutes into the phone call that I realized I had been talking to a machine. When I asked "Carmen" to repeat a question it did with exactly the same cadence, and then I realized someone was on the other end selecting voice commands. When I became suspicious, I tried to ask it a specific question. By this point I had heard several voice commands repeated enough times to recognize it was a machine. I eventually became confrontational and asked if I was speaking with a human and then the line cut out. I tried calling the number back but this time it was a male voice. I realized it was also a machine. I tried calling back several other times and was given a machine that asked me to press 1 to be put on their Do Not Call list, or to press 2 to inquire about more information about the company (the machine never once mentioned the name of the company), and it mentioned the following e-mail address: [email protected]

Unfortunately this is all the information that I have but thank you for your time.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Scammer stating they have a back brace that was approved by medicare and the need to delivered the back brace by UPS. All they need was our client's address at the group home. There were variations to this, such as we just needed to say, "Yes," so the brace would be delivered. No information was given to the scammers, but we are still getting 5+ calls per day from this scam company for over 1 year.

Type of a scam Phishing

I answered my business line, with the name of my department, and my first name. They then asked "Jane Doe?" (not my real name), to which I answered yes, and the caller hung up! My affirmative response may be used later to try to pass through charges or initiate other scams.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Have received repeated voice mails, all from 414 area code. Message is partial, no business name is mentioned nor was I addressed by name.

Message says that if I don't call them back, I've "waived my right to counsel" and they will forward information on to state I live in.

My wife received a phone call from

The number I’m reporting. She didn’t answer. A couple of minutes later, I received a call on my cell phone from the same number.

The caller asked “Hi, can you hear me?”

I replied “Yes.”

Caller “I’m sorry, I’m getting static. I’ll have to call you back.”

Apparently there is a scam where fraudsters record your “yes” answer to make unauthorized charges to your credit cards etc.

I received a phone call on my cell phone that went to voicemail. I had trouble understanding the message but after listening to it a few times It was a recording demanding I call them back at this number 1-682-651-8773 before they proceeded with legal action against me. I did NOT call the number back there is no reason for someone to have legal action against me.

“So when you get this message revert us back as soon as possible on our number before we begin with the legal proceedings that is 424-781-9607 I repeat 424-781-9607 thank you and have a nice day…

I called and asked who they are, and what they were planning to sue me about. He asked if I received the call on the number I was calling from. I replied that it was on the phone I called on. He asked for my first and last name. I asked for his name. He said he was Officer (he gave a name that I couldn’t understand and annid number that I didn’t record). He kept trying to get personal information, and I kept trying to get a business name. He asked again for my name, and I said, “I think this is a scam, so no.” I then hung up.
