Second call

March 3, 2016 around 8:45 AM CST

Paul Directo called my mother, again, to say he needed on her computer because it was reporting issues. My mother got his phone number 1-800-971-4491 and that he was calling from NJ. She then called me.

I called. A female answered. She asked if payments had been made. Then she asked how I got the phone number. I told her it wasn't about payments and that I need to speak with Paul. A long pause with lots of chatter happened.

A gentlemen, with a heavy foreign accent, claiming to be Paul, got on the phone. He asked for her name. I didn't give it to him. I asked him for their company name and why they keep calling her about her computer when she doesn't have one. He said they would remove her from the list, said bye, and hung up.

We had two calls on March 2 regarding a threatening IRS call. One was on the voice mail and the call back number is 202-304-3126. Obviously a scam and we did no call back.

Type of a scam Nigerian/Foreign Money Exchange

Hello, I am a licensed Registered Nurse with the State of Ohio. In February of this year I put an ad on for senior caregiving services. I had to close my account because #1 my personal information from my profile was hacked into, and my phone number was given out to a scam artist who first tried to scam me through email. #2 I got a text message on 3/3/16 from a 262 area code claiming they saw my ad on They stated they lived in Indiana, and were looking for a care giver for there 81 year old mother. The people who are behind these scams do reply back to you if you answer them, and with both instances they requested personal information. I was not even a member of this site for 2 full months, and my personal information such as my phone number were given out. Identity theft is on the rise, and websites such as this need to upgrade their safety and privacy measures or not be allowed to sell there services. Please address this issue with this website. As a nurse safety is a priority for my self and my clients.

Thank you

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

The caller began by saying he was Mr Douglas Jackson representing the calling me to notify me that I had won 2.2 million in Mega Millions lottery. I wanted to know how considering I have never purchased a ticket. He claimed it was done electronically these days by zip, phone, etc. Because I wanted to get as much info as I could. I informed him I was a skeptic. He then gave me a password/code whenever I had to call. The password was "sam". He called from 484-324-6650, which I looked up while he kept talking and is a landline located in Paoli PA. He then informed me I would need to pay $8300 in taxes and fees. I told him if I had won then deduct this from the winnings as legal places you don't pay to win. He tried to get me to tell him the cash advance limit on my credit cards as if I were stupid enough to provide that to anyone. H e also claimed the winnings included a 2016 Mercedes Benz, and a trip to the Caribbean for up to seven people. I told him I would call him back, which I never will. He could not provide me with the company's name or EIN number stating he would have to ask his manager. Individual called back from 484-552-4775. He said I thought we had an agreement on the provision of my credit card info. I repeated to him that first I need a company name and EIN, once verified then we can talk until then don't call back.

Type of a scam Employment

I have been contacted three times by this scam. The first time they said it was for work at home for tenet Healthcare and someone was in Google hangout waiting for me to do interview right away. I did the interview and thought it went well, although their grammar was poor. They put me in hold for 20 minutes on a Saturday while they "consulted with the hr department". They then came back and told me I had the job and they contacting me with papers I had to fill out and return by Monday. By this point, I had caught on and didn't follow through.

Two days later I got a text offering me an interview for another major work at home company. I looked up the company interview methods, then asked the texter how they did the interview. He said "Google hangout" I said I didn't have a Google account and they left me alone. Three days later, I had someone text me that they wanted to interview. .once again I asked what method. They said someone was waiting at Google hangout. I told them that I was onto their scam and would not be doing any interviews, so they should lose my number as I intended to report them and have this investigated.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a call from 202-827-5339 from a female with a profound accent (probably Asian) offering a free $8500 from the Government. I had been specifically chosen by some type of lottery. I could receive the amount by giving her my bank info, or a credit card number or cash. I chose cash. For that I had to call 202 827 5339 and refer to KL221 for further arrangements. I did not call buy decided to place it on this site.

I have received no lees than 13 calls from this scam. I have asked several time (nicely) to have me removed from their calling list. I have started keying in a couple of numbers on my key[pad to send tones and say "Operator please record this call" at which time they usually hang up. The last time, the caller started cursing and say some really bad things about my mom's private parts being wrinkled! Since my mom is 82, I'm sure that may be the case. But, I don't need some guy telling me so over the phone!

I went along with it and then was told I'd be transferred to some accounts department for verification.

I told him that the government wouldn't make me pay money in order to send me money, he hung up.

Someone called me from phone 231-352-0687. They had a really bad accent and I could hardly understand him. He said there was an error on income tax and was probably fraudulent. I was told over and over not to hang up or the sheriff would be here in 45 minutes. Someone in the background was coaching the man what to say. I told him I was sure this must be a joke and it could not be true. I held the phone to tie it up without saying anything so I could get the number on my caller ID. When I got home from church today I had a message saying it was the last chance to clear this up. They gave me the phone number to call back.

I did not answer and no message was left but it was the same area code as the previous call.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a piece of mail purportedly offering up to $1,398 worth of travel and/or hotel accommodations within the continental U.S. The mail included a document that looked like a check for the above amount. Wording at the bottom stated it was not a check, but also said it "Can be used for cruise voucher."

On the back of that document was further detail on this offer, including this: A sixty to ninety minute presentation may be required to receive promotional offer." It also cited potential travel restrictions and stated that recipient is "responsible for any taxes, reservation fees, incidentals or selected upgrades.

There was no company or individual name connected to this document, except for an unreadable signature at the bottom of the check-like section.

The document stated because previous attempts to reach me were unsuccessful, I had 10 days to contact the issuer of the document. There was no postal or e-mail address, only a telephone number: 888-457-8848.

The document included the names and logos of Expedia, ORBITZ, and trivago (black and white images). But stated the images were for "illustrative purposes only."

What particularly caught my eye was the statement in the upper left of the address face of the document stating: "CHECK ENCLOSED" and "FINAL NOTICE"

The document had a presorted standard mail postage stamp which included the words, Sacramento, CA. and PERMIT NO. 1827

We received two phone calls about two weeks ago, one at 830 am one day and the next day at 542 am with a recorded message saying that the IRS was going to file a suit against us for back taxes. The first time we hung up, the next time they left the same message, so my husband called the number back and told them they were recorded, and not to call again. They called using a 206 area code number. I reported the incident to our local news, and to the attorney general here in the state of Washington. I hope that others don't fall for this scam!!!,

The company I work for has a parking lot for its employees. Today (2/16/2016) when I left work there was a post-it note stuck to my driver side car window. It read "it's about your car call chris (571) 295-1999". I immediately walked around my car to verify there was nothing wrong with my car. There did not appear to be any issues noticeable with the car. When I called the phone number it went to voice mail and the message simply stated that the number was for Heather. I hung up immediately and never left a message. While I was driving home I got a return call from the number, but did not answer it because I was driving. When I got home I called the number back, but immediately got the voice mail again. I decided to send a text message to the number explaining the note and that I was calling in reference to the note. Approximately 10 minutes later I got a phone call from the number with a male who identified himself as Chris. He explained that there was nothing wrong with my car, and that he had been fixing another car window in the parking lot my car was in and that he had walked around the parking lot to drum up some more business. When I asked him about the voice mail message for the number he had left he explained that it was his girlfriends phone number and that it was complicated and a long story so he didn't want to explain the details. He made his sales pitch about fixing my car window (even though it does not need fixing) and that he would bill my insurance company. I told him I was not interested at this time.
