Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I am selling an item on Craigslist, and was text messaged an offer of paying $80 extra. Person messaged that a Certified Cashiers Check would be overnighted USPS after I sent my name and address. Then a arrangements would be made on their part for shipment after I have cash in hand. All I responded to the message was "NO". I did not receive anything from this number since then.

I've received 2 calls today from +1 (202) 568-2459, a Washington, DC area number stating that the IRS is suing me and I needed to contact them immediately to resolve the issue. It's an automated voice each time. I did not call the number back.

They are calling on my cell asking for another person whom I know stating that they are with the Lucas county and there's a litigation against the person of interest. That if they don't talk to him they will be forced to come find him. Stated they called his HR and was insuccessful or something so they called me. Once you reverse the number it won't go any future unless you pay but it says it's free. They number is 866-613-3170.

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.

I had heard about the IRS phone scam in the news and from my tax preparer. Today, I've received 2 calls via my cell phone, which shouldn't be a public number. Of course I immediately hung up, but thought you might want the number displayed from them to help in your investigation: 310 - 667 - 2862.

Type of a scam Other

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.

Type of a scam Phishing

The caller (sounded like a computer) left a message on my answering machine stating that his name was James Kaston and that I should call him at 281-949-6101 about a "Criminal Enforcement Action by the US Treasury." The instruction was to "cooperate so Mr. Kaston could help me."

The caller never asked for me by name. This is obviously a scam meant to scare people into divulging personal information of some kind.

I did not call the number (281-949-6101) and instead am reporting this scam.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a recorded message from telephone number 305-602-9282 saying that Heather from my bank was calling about my credit card; saying nothing was wrong but was offering a lower interest rate on my card. However, the caller did not mention my bank by name. The message said that I could lower my interest rate by pressing "1" and talking to a representative. I did not press "1" and hung up because I suspected a scam because my bank was not mentioned name. Additionally, the call came over my cell phone and not my home phone. I normally conduct business with my bank over my home phone. Because I didn't press "1" I do not know if the call involved an attempt to take money.

Received call from 302-333-4359 (Wilmington, DE) which automated call claiming to be IRS and I had been sued. Recorded voice left same number for me to call back to get details about claim. I called back immediately they were unable to find my name and phone number and said they called me by mistake.

I received a call from the same number 3 hours later and it showed as coming from Greece they left a voice message with the same number for me to call back for claim information. I called back and asked to be removed from the call list. The same man answered the phone as I spoke to before (he had an accent) I asked again to be removed from the list he said "but I've missed you" the call was highly unusual and unprofessional. I informed the individual I did not want to be called again, he said "ok talk to you later."

the scammer called and told me I owe $11,780 to the IRS for the years from 2003 to 2008. He said his name was Tyler Brown. He told me to go to Walgreens and buy $800 in iTunes cards and to bring the cards to him at 430 N. Wabasha St. He also told me he was sending someone to me house to arrest me and take me away in handcuffs. He also told me he had sent me two registered letters on Sept 16, 2015 and on Dec 9, 2015 and claimed he had photos of notices on my door about these letters. He then told me not to call my accountant. I thought that was strange, and did call my accountant and he told me it was a scam. He did ask for the last for digits for my Social Security number. I did give him that information. But, because I was so confused at the time, I MIGHT have also typed in my entire Social Security number. PLEASE HELP! Can you arrest him before he moves away?

Computer ransomware. Victim opened a virus-infected e-mail attachment which encrypted his computer files. Ransom message appeared with directions to buy 1.3 Bitcoins (approximately $500) and send them to Bitcoin address (unknown recipient). Buying Bitcoins required proof of ID, residency, picture of owner holding credit card and driver's license. Owner also needed to authorize credit card company to purchase bitcoins.
