Guy with a very thick accent and broken English purporting to be Officer Michael Brown of the IRS Criminal Investigation Service left an urgent message saying I was being investigated and needed to call back right away. Totally hilarious if not annoying. Guy probably picked up the Michael Brown name too from a headline for the Ferguson teen killing story

Received a message from someone identifying themself as "Franco" (spoken in an intimidating tone) wanting to verify address, phone number, and employer info in efforts to locate a family member. He left a callback number of 866-204-2029 and ref #. When I called, an automated message answered saying "You have reached Global". It offered to enter a party's ext or ask how they could help... all automated. I did not reach a live person. I was not provided an ext. When I called the 529-497-4537 number, I got an operator message saying it was an invalid number. I am NOT going to give these people ANY information about ANYONE. I added the number to my auto-reject list on my phone.

nomorobo blocked this call- phone rang once and stopped. Check to see if your phone provider has the simultaneous ring option. nomorobo is free and blocks most of these calls from getting through if your service provider has it. nomorobo will go through on a menu which service providers have the option for this service.
