Type of a scam Travel/Vacations

Receiving faxes from 888-376-4029. No name of the business is on the fax. Current one says Memorial Day Super Sale! It lists sales for trips to different locations. Discounts for Seniors, Educators, Medical & Military Personnel. At the bottom lists a number to call to be taken off the list. Number is always busy. 877-469-6456. We are a hospital and do not want these faxes. No way to stop them.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Starting in April of 2016 I began to get calls from someone with a foreign accent (Indian or Pakistani)inquiring about my prescription pain medicine. I would just hang up on them at first, but they are getting more persistent now. When I begin to ask them about who they are they usually get nervous and hang up, but the next day they will call again. The area code is in St. Louis County or Jefferson county as it is 314. I am 63 yrs. old and dealing with advanced prostate cancer and heart disease. This may or may not be anything you can deal with, but if you can I would be most appreciative. Shut down this phone bank?

Thank you

Type of a scam Debt Collections

automatic message on a family members phone. Message stated they were looking for me due to a legal matter. The number left on the message 18446951380. When I called a man calling himself Rob Gardener said I stole money from a bank called *** *** for 300 dollars 6 years ago. I had the same thing happen a few months ago. They had my full social and an old address. Stupidly I gave him my current address and email. He said I owed 570. I told him I would pay if he mailed me some paperwork stating the date of the loan and what bank the funds were deposited. He told me he would send me an email right away and to call him monday at 9am eastern standard time. When I reviewed my notes from the earlier call and checked his number that's when I realized its was a scam. He never sent the emaiI. I did not give him my bank info. However i did give my address and email. They already have my social and date of birth. They also know I am on ssdi social security. This "Rob Gardener" is at 18446951380 ext 545. I think they just wanted to know my current address so they can get my social security or open a new credit card in my name.

Type of a scam Rental

I replied to a craigslist add for an apartment on the east side of Madison. I was contacted via email by the scammers. I noticed that the grammar and context of the words used were odd.

The scammers asked for a seven hundred dollar deposit to hold the house via money gram sent to New Mexico and said the keys and paperwork would be sent to me after the payment was received.

I went by the property and spoke with the current tenants who had legitimate contact with the real owners. The house was for rent at one point but not by the people who contacted me.

Type of a scam Other

I received a phone call from the phone number 619-488-5608 and my caller ID recognized it as Maria Hudson. I am in a government office and had my cell phone forwarded to my work number, so I am not certain if they called my cell or work line directly.

When I returned the call a male answered the phone,

male" "hello?"

Me: "I am returning your call."

Male: "Oh, right, shoot, I am from Some Loan and your loan was approved for $9000 how much are you going to borrow?"

Me: "What loan? What company are you with?"

Male: "I am with a loan company and we see you were in the market to borrow money and your loan was approved, are you going to borrow the loan?"

Me: "I do not recall a loan application, what market are you referring too?"

Male: : "Disconnected the call"

Type of a scam Credit Cards

The company called with an automated voice system notifying me to press number one to learn about lowering the interest rate on my credit card. It did not give a specific company of my credit card and when I notified them of that and began to ask to be taken off their call list, they simply hung up on me. I tried to call back and was an able to patch through to a working line.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

i have been receiving emails claiming that I owe a debt close to $8,000. Before that the debt was about $4,000. The latest email, as of May 4, 2016, claims that the debt was due January 1, 2016, and that legal proceedings will be taken against me if I do not pay up. It is always a different person who signs these emails. There is no name of a business or individual to whom I am supposed to be in debt. No letterhead nor any other identification or explanation of services or goods sent. Yet the threat of legal action is real. I always delete the message, and lately have put a block on the message. Don't know if that will help because it always seems to be a different messenger. Is there anything that I can do to stop this? I don't owe any money to anyone and my household and credit card bills get paid on time.

Received a phone call from numbers 18008291040 and 2022397276. Claimed, They were the IRS and I was being sued. Claimed, if I did not pay certain amount a warrant would be issued within 2 hrs. Claimed, police officer was being sent over because I refused to provide the amount they requested. They continually harassed me for close to a month, than started harassing my relatives. They also used the +911 number to scare me. Called it and it directed me to the 911 emergency number. They instructed me that no one in the 911 emergency had called me. Scammers are some how using this +911 number to make us think it is the police.
