Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I’ve been receiving calls from numbers that are very similar to mine for almost a year. The origin of the call is always from Monroe, NC, which is where I lived when I entered into my cell phone contract. The phone # varies, but is always in the following format: [my area code]-[first 3 digits of my cell]-[last 4 digits of my cell in different order].

The few times I’ve answered, it’s been a recording that is already talking by the time I’ve answered. Purports to be selling health insurance. I’m a law student and will file suit if I could figure out who is behind it. I’ve used all the public record searches available to me with no luck. Definitely seems like they’re cloaking themselves in an identity similar to mine.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I have no clue who this company is or how they got my number. I have requested to be removed from their calling list multiple times and the agents just laugh, hang up, one even said he was going to look me up on snap chat. Absolutely ridiculous that nobody has shut this down.

Type of a scam Phishing

I usually do not answer unknown numbers but this one looked familiar. I know not to answer "yes" when they say "Can you hear me okay" - but this one just asked "is this ***" and I said yes. They hung up. I checked the number and it was a call that had a lot of complaints, one was a roofing scam. In January my neighbor and I were delivering meals on wheels and were carjacked. Our purses were in the car. We got them back but had already cancelled all of our credit cards and changed our bank accounts. I've heard that scammers record "yes" when you answer and use the "yes" to charge things, etc. I don't know if that is true but was told I should report it to BBB Scam Tracker.

I'm reporting this for a record of the phone call.

This business said they were a financial institution that helps with reducing your student loan. The message I received on my phone asked me to call back the number 949-408-0006. When I called the number back someone answered the phone and asked me how much I owed. No introduction of the company or anything. When i asked What I was hung up on.

They're calling and saying "you will be cited for removal of Trojen virus".

Victim Location 43229
Type of a scam Debt Collections

I received recorded message that if I didn't pay money on some phony debt that I did not owe, they would have the police sent out to arrest me. I returned the call and they do not say the name but that I should "hold for the next available agent". The phone number is 831-287-1571 which originates from Salinas CA. This is another of my ongoing scam calls I have had recently. I do not speak with them because I cannot answer my phone quickly enough. Now I will not answer unless I recognize the number.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I had received voice mail messages after the initial phone call from 614-557-7068. I have asked the name of the company and they will not answer. They hung up when I asked where they were from. This call message said it was for debt collection on a credit card I did not have.

Victim Location 78621
Type of a scam Tech Support

The Man claimed to be a Tech support with Apple Computers. He called himself Mark Adams. There was a second Tech named Robert. I had just had my apple mac book for two months and was not aware of the basic information that Apple offers. One being the Firewall. I was on my computer when it started to with one pop up after another. Then I got a message that my computer was compromised and that I would need to contact Apple to get help. Then a screen popped up with a apple sign and a number for tech support. The man on the phone told me that I would need to purchase additional firewall protection and that I could pay today with a scanned check of 184.43 for one year. After scanning them a check they asked to be able to get into my computer to clean up the virus that was shutting my computer down. That is when Robert came in as the Tech from Bridgeway Inc. He gave me a 855-811-4814 number and said to not call no one else. That is when I knew that this was not right. I found another number from Apple and called. They told me to stop the share with them and take it to the closest Apple Store. I called my bank to make them aware of the threat on my account, and set up identity thief protection to protect my identity. I then headed to a Apple store. The scammers started to call me over and over. I was so upset and felt so violated. I asked them to cancel the check that I could not go through with this transaction and that I would need to just go to a store. They are still calling me from this number but I will block it and the other number as well. Apple may have his real name and are looking into this already. I am so upset! This was 5 hour of high stress. Plus I will spend every day keeping an eye on all my accounts. Please be careful.

Calls coming in on mobile phone using different call back numbers. The message says, "But we never got any response from your end so it has been considered an intentional fraud & lawsuit has been filed under your name by the United States government." A call-back number is then left.

Type of a scam Phishing

I missed a call on my cell phone, but when I listened to the recording, it was a computer voice saying that there was legal action being pursued against me unless I call back the number they provided. I did not call back, but this clearly is a scam to obtain personal information.

Type of a scam Government Grant

Someone calling herself Annette Williams Pompey, hacked my aunts Facebook page to tell me to text this number about NFB grants and to give them information. I know this is not done through text message and after contacting my aunt she was not even online. I'm reporting because someone could fall for this.

Type of a scam Phishing

Tries to get people to go to their website for a vehicle history report and add vin number. It's all phony. Not sure what the intent is but I'm positive it's not good. Below is what they sent me via text. All of the test message responses are automatic as well.

Would you please pull a history check from and send it to me?

I told local police and they said report it as a scam.

Victim Location 31324
Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

I receive an automated call from this number almost daily. Today I decided to press "9" to reach an associated. When the associate answered I kindly asked David to remove my number from his calling list. He proceeded to tell me that I would never be removed from his list. I said "excuse me", then he repeated to tell me that my number will never be removed from his list. I reminded him that he could not give me an answer like that and that I was reporting him. I then hung up he phone. I am unable to block the number because the number always starts with my extension 912-856-xxxx, but the last 4 are different every time.
