Type of a scam Identity Theft

I received a robo call from *** ***. I did not answer the call. It went straight to voicemail. The voicemail was an automated system that said "There has been an identity theft. Before we take legal action against you, you must call ***." According to my phone, the call came from Nevada City, CA. I immediately moved this number to my blocked call list on my cell phone.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Received a call from a Lori Grant (606) 802-7971 (very short ring then went to voicemail) she said it was regards to a complaint notice to your attention. And that I need to call 844-793-1304 to update my address and contact info. After the 3rd attempt they would contact my HR or department responsible for payroll in an attempt to garnish my wages. She never said what company organization they were calling from. She said that this was an attempt to collect on an account that had been closed over 10 years, and that there was no statue of limitations on this account.

Texas’ four-year statute of limitations on debts works alongside the Texas Debt Collection Act. The limited time period means that debt collectors cannot sue individuals in an attempt to collect debts that are more than four years past due.

They threatened me with civil court and wage garnishment, and stating that they will contact HR at my current employment.

After all this, I still don't know who these people are. They have my personal information (SSN, birth date, name etc.)

Now I have to report ID theft with the police dept, FTC ID theft dept, and freeze my 3 credit bureau reports.

Computer voice claims fraud refers to above-referenced telephone number that cannot be tracked as to who they are. Threat of compliant filed at Federal courthouse and DEA and threat of arrest if you don't call back. Don't believe the federal government works this way. Sorry no call back from me.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a call from the number above. My caller ID indicated that it was coming from North Richland Hills, Texas. The person painting our house is from there so I answered the call. The woman talking asked me a question about our house, and I answered yes. She then hung up. I called back several times. The first time the same woman (Naomi) answered, kept asking me yes/no questions, and hung up when I answered with questions of my own. I called back several more times but kept getting just an automated system that let me put my phone number on their internal do not call list (which I did) or talk to an agent. Every time I selected the option of talking to an agent, the system said no one was available and gave me their email address. I did not email them.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I posted an add to sell some things on Craigslist. DO NOT click the box that allows your phone number to be seen, this is where I made a mistake.

I started getting tons of inquiries asking for either a Google Voice number (scam, DO NOT share that number with anyone) or I was asked if they could mail a cashiers check, which I know is a scam.

This person and several others were asking to mail me a check then have their movers come and pick up the item.

Type of a scam Tech Support

This scammer somehow used our own landline number -- at least that is what shows up in the caller ID -- it was a woman's voice reporting that "we've been trying to contact you. Your IP has been compromised in several countries and we must change it. We will be disconnecting your IP in 48 hrs."

Victim Location 60657
Type of a scam Identity Theft

Automated voice telling me that my Social Security number had fraudulent activity and that I needed to call 8503085629 before they began legal proceedings. They called 3 times in one day. Knowing this was a scam, I called the number to ask for my number to be removed, and the person on the line told me "no" and pretended to be an Officer of the Social Security Administration. I informed them that I would report to the Better Business Bureau.

Type of a scam Phishing

I wouldn’t have answered but I was expecting another call. They asked me if I was my name, I didn’t say anything and they asked me if I was my name again. They only used my first name and I said yes. Then I hung up. Now I am kicking myself because I don’t know what can happen. I’m prepared for next time, I will just say who is this? But I was caught off guard and I said yes. Please tell me nothing horrible can happen.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

Man called claiming to be our grandson and said he had been arrested. Our grandson is in school today. We checked to be sure. Another man was on the the phone claiming to be his lawyer. They wanted us to "bail him out of jail". They said to go to Macey's dept. store and get five 1,000.00 gift certificates then call them to give them the numbers on the gift certificates. The number he gave us to call was, 438-988-1721. They also said not to tell anyone.. The person claiming to be our grandson said not to tell his father. The first thing we did was call his father. We knew it was a scam, but wanted our son to know what happened.

Received a call from two separate state area codes (Chicago and San Diego). Same woman on the line asking to confirm your name and address. ( she says your name, and then asks You to state your address for “verification”.). When asked what matter it is regarding she tells you it is confidential and you need to give your address to know what the call is about

Victim Location 23601
Type of a scam Phishing

The call offers to provide a service regarding extended warranty for a vehicle (or something) and asks if you want to speak to an agent. I wanted to speak to someone who I could ask to remove me from their call list so I uttered the word yes and immediately remembered this is a scam tactic. Now I am worried I was recorded.
