Type of a scam Debt Collections

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.

I received this postcard and called the number. When the foreign guy answered the phone he said i would need to give him my visa card information for the shipping cost. I refused. He hung up on me. I googles unclaimed prizes and this is a wide known scam up North and now has made its way down here. My grandmother also received one Friday afternoon. Elders are going to fall for this. I hope someone stops this before its too late for the vulnerable. Thank you.
