Type of a scam Tax Collection

This woman has called me for the past four years right around tax time. She claims to be a person who has been givien my personal business matter for handling and states that I need her to call me right away. She never describes who she works for or what it's regarding she gives the phone number listed above and gives this extension to dial 1246366. I have called back years past and she told me I had a warrant for my arrest. Feeling panicked I went to my local sheriffs office and they confirmed I have no such warrant. This is very frustrating and embarrassing as she calls people I haven't talked to in years.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

This was a robocall that sounded like a real person. It went through the "can you hear me now?" type thing and mentioned having trouble with their headset. I didn't realize what it was until I'd unfortunately already said yes to one of the questions. Once I realized it was automated I hung up and looked up the number to find others had reported a similar issue with the number and read multiple articles about the scam.

Called and asked if I was the homeowner and I said "yes" (I was expecting a home improvement call) and now I'm worrying that they recorded the "yes" and will try to scam me in some way.

Type of a scam Phishing

Note that all calls were made from the 734 area code but that they looked like a local call because no area code showed up in the caller ID. Also note that my phone number is registered on the “Do not call list.” I did report this to TXXXX ZXX of the xxxxx Sheriff’s Office.

The first call was when I was expecting a call from the hospital and fell for the “can you hear me” to which I replied “Yes”. That call was at 12:39pm on 4/3/2017, caller ID 648-6062, from a person who called himself ‘Joe’ and asked “can you hear me”, when it dawned on me that I had fell for the “can you hear me” scam I had read about I hung up. I was upset with myself for falling for something I was warned against and tried calling the number back and could not believe it when Joe answered. I explained why I called him back and told him about the scam. He said no he was reading from a script and was calling because my number had been given to find more information and did anyone in the house have mobility issues. I replied no and hung up.

Second call 7:21pm 4/3/2017 caller ID 245-9531 from the same person. I asked if this was Joe, he finally said yes and he was pitching something else. I hung up.

Third call 9:21am 4/5/2017 caller ID 245-9579 “Hi this is Brook I’m calling on a recorded line can you hear me OK?” I responded “no” “hello” and they hung up. I called Txxx of the xxxx Sheriff’s office and let her know about the call.

4th call 3:54pm 4/5/2017 caller ID 245-9583 “Hi, this is Joe and this line is being recorded how are you today”? me “this call has been reported to the Washtenaw County Sheriff” they hung up - I called the number back - music played then Joe came on saying the call was being recorded and ask how I was doing? I replied that this was the FBI calling and asked for their real name, no answer, I than said this is the FBI calling from the residents and what is your real name and what company are you representing – they hung up!

Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Answered cell, there was a pause after answering and about to hang up but a voice said said, "oh, sorry...can you hear me now, I had a problem with my headset. Because you stayed at one of our..." and I asked to be on the no call list, and it was then I realized it was a not a "live" call. It had authentic sound quality like a live call. Like a dummy I answered...and I know better, but was in a hurry. It appeared to be a local call...I don't usually answer unknown numbers. Damn.

I have been receiving calls from telephone number (408) 740-8753 for the past two weeks. I normally just ignore thre call. Today on the 4th call from this number I decided to answer. The person on the other end was quiet at first then he said "Hello" and I responded with "Yes". He didn't say anything after that. i said hello a couple more times and decided to hang up... Now I'm concerned this was a Scam..

Received a call from a person saying, "This is Josh with customer service. Can you hear me okay? You have been selected....." I hung up. Concerned it is related to the reported scams where the caller records your voice saying "yes" and then charges accounts with your recorded "permission".

Type of a scam Credit Cards

Called and stated they were my credit card company and needed to talk to me (recording said to press 1 to speak with someone) so i pressed 1 to tell them they weren't my credit card company because i dont have one and to loose my number.

When I asked how they got my info the guy started saying RRRRR to speak over me and would not answer my questions. I would not give him personal info.

I called the number back to see if i could get ino on who called me. I received the same treatment same thing except this time the guy tried to tell me I owned the credit card company $200 and wouldnt tell me who i owe it to and how he knows who i am because we didnt verify any info. and I didnt give any.

Called a 3rd time to get him to loose my info and it went to voice mail name on the voicemail is cory brand.

The number will be blocked on my cell phone. I do not wish to hear from this guy again and he needs to be stopped before someone is scammed out of real money.

Type of a scam Employment

I received a phone call from the above number offering a job opportunity. The person on other end has a heavy african accent. I mistakenly said "yes" during the conversation. When I called back the number, it turned out to be a google number and would not allow to reach someone or leave a message...definitely not a business.

The "Can you hear me" scam. Woman answers the phone, waits a couple of seconds before saying, "sorry I dropped my headset, can you still hear me?". She continues her pitch, including how I won a free stay on their cruise line (no name of cruise line is mentioned) and that they just needed to ask me a couple more questions to continue, followed by "is that ok"? At that time, I just hung up.

Type of a scam Phishing

I have received at least 15 robo calls in the last 3 days from several different cities as well as unknown id, out of the country, etc. I am sure at least once I said "yes" when the person (recording )said "can you hear me?"

I do not answer the calls anymore when I do not know the caller.

I do not want to change my number because my phone number is on my business cards, and all my friends have my number. I just want to know how to stop it. I also do not want to lose my ID.

I was called by a what sounded a very nice young lady. She asked if I could hear her ok and I said yes. Apparently now this scam has recorded my voice and charges to various accounts of mine might be vulnerable to fraudulent charges.
