Type of a scam Debt Collections

Call comes from an "Unknown" number and a recording plays that says they have important paperwork to serve you at your place of employment or residence. They leave this number to call back. This scam person or people have obtained debt that has been paid off already and try to scare you into paying it again immediately with them over the phone.

A robo message was left on my elderly mother's answering machine on November 5th. It stated that the IRS was placing a lawsuit on her and to call 206 973 7041. I checked the caller ID and it was listed as UNKNOWN. My mother has a heart condition and could have had a heart attack if she had been told that a lawsuit was going to be placed on her but i intercepted the message before she got home. I hope that they do not call again when I am unable to do so.

Type of a scam Government Grant

Received a phone call on 11/5/15 from a man with a heavy foreign accent offering a US Government grant for $6000 from phone # 256 989 687. Not even a full contact number. Gave me another number to call to get the grant. Phone # 202 302 7477. I had to call back 3 times. First time the lady hung up on me. Second, the background noise was so loud I could barely here her. Third time I did get to talk to her. She told me I need to go to the nearest place that had MoneyGram and register for the grant by sending $270 and that I would get it back once I got the grant. She asked when I could send the money, to which I told her I couldn't because it sounded suspicious and hung up. Today, 11/6/15, the same man from the same number (256 989 687) called and offered a grant for $9200. I told him that he had called me yesterday, then he said ok then hung up.

I received a telephone call claiming to be the IRS for a debt amount of $4479 from 2009 - 2012. I did not provide them any information, but wanted to report this scam to BBB. They also said they would have me arrested if the money was not paid.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

I received a phone call from ###-###-#### on 10/30/15 around 1:15 PM CST. When I answered the phone, an automated system advised me that "they were calling in regards to my credit card and wanted to offer me a lower interest rate." I was asked to press one to speak with a representative. After pressing one, a gentleman with what seemed to be a middle-eastern accent answered the phone. He advised me that he would like to offer me a lower interest rate on my credit card and explained that he had my card information pulled up. I questioned him three times as to what card specifically he was referring to. Each time, he deflected my questions and did not answer them. Eventually, when I asked what company he was calling from, he hung up the phone. I attempted to report this to my cell phone provider and a credit card company, both of which advised me that "there was nothing they could do, as it was considered a fisher trying to steal my identity."

Claiming to be "Strategic Student Solutions".

They're not.

Strategic is located in Lake Worth Florida

This telephone number is a landline originating in La.


I guess they would be considered phishers.

Do not answer or call them back.

Ive called 5 times this morning with 5 different approaches to speak with supervisors, or to see what information they have of mine.

They hung up on me every time.

Someone named 'Jim' called my cellphone repeatedly and said it was regarding my husband. He was very threatening and said I had to call back to let me know what was going on with him (in a tone that would make one think something very bad had happened to him). I didn't call him back, but I did look up the number on the internet. There are pages and pages about this exact scenario. First he called under phone number ###-###-####. Then, he started calling under 'No Caller ID'.

I have no debt and this guy is just a rude scammer.

We are receiving automated phone messages stating that the call is for my husband's sister, they state her name, and then a claim number is given. The first call was received on 10/28/2015 from 866-209-8167. The second call which was received the next day, 10/29/2015, with the same automated message, was from 866-292-7207. I tried calling the number left on the machine on 10/29/2015, however, it rings until a machine picks up and asks for you to leave a message. I went on-line to do a reverse number look-up, but unless I paid to see the information found for the number, I could not view anything other than people's comments who have received similar calls. Some commented that once an operator is connected, he/she speaks quickly and asks you to verify your social security number. Others stated the call referenced a loan never applied for. My phone number is a private, unlisted number and we block callers who block their numbers. Curious as to how they linked my sister-in-law with our number. It's a bit concerning for both parties.

Received a call that went to a recording before I could finish saying hello. Stated that I needed to call the IRS and that this was my final chance to take care of the problem. They never identified themselves and never stated who the call was for. The phone number I was given to call is 347-826-1022. This is also the number that came up on my caller ID as unknown name.

Type of a scam Phishing

My phone number has been recently bombarded with scam text messages about my disability claims. I'm not sure how they got my personal information. This company sends me at least 5-6 text messages a day and when I reply with 'STOP' it says that I will no longer receive messages from that number. Unfortunately, the company is using phone numbers from all over the country. I have tried to look up the phone numbers and they are not listed. I have called the numbers to ask them to please stop harassing me and they either hang up on me and/or say that they will take me off of their call list. This has been going on for a couple of months now. I've tried to block their numbers, but the company is using so many different phone numbers that it is impossible to block all of them. What can I do besides changing my phone number? I'm being harassed. The phone number that the text is being sent from doesn't work. The text includes a different call back number. For example, 712-587-8707 sent me a text message that says, "Please contact 916-794-0155 regarding your disability claim". The only disability claim I have is through the Veterans Affairs. This is not the Veterans Affairs offices. I'm not sure if my personal information was stolen from the VA or not. Is there anything I can do to stop this company from harassing me? Thank you!

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

Started receiving phone calls from 876-837-8912 (on caller ID) and caller states that I would be receiving a package from UPS, cashier's check for 1. million something and Mercedez Benz. The caller ID says the call is coming from Jamaica and when I call the number back I cannot because I do not have international calling and there is no number for the states, but he indicated to me that he is in the U.S. The caller told me his name, but I could not understand. I do not have the name of the business/organization.
