I received a similar suspicious call and the scammer seemed to read from a written script.
This number called me today, Thursday, Sep 12, 2013, at 2:16 pm. Since I don't know this number or area, I didn't answer. They did not leave a message on my voicemail, so this call could not have been very important. Must be a telemarketer or a scam. Either way, if they don't leave a message, I definitely don't want to speak with them !!
Unwanted recording call!
This was unnerving. The man called asking for my daughter. Upon researching on the phone number, I discovered that it was a scam & wanted to report them.
Called my cell phone, rang once.
They call everyday. I have tried to answer but nothing on the line. I have called the number and get a busy signal. Thank you for your assistance.
This number has called 3 times today. This is obviously a scam. Please deal with it accordingly.
This is the second complaint that I have filed and these people are still calling me. I want to know what you're going to do about it!
The caller tells the the customer that they have been awarded a government grant and then proceeds to ask for your bank informatio or credit card information to deposit the funds after you pay them $130.00
Stop calling me
they appear to be marketers...BUT they state that they are not selling anything.. they quickly hang up when I inquired about the company name.
We have received several call from verious collection companies looking for the same person. Can you do something about this or are you one of the goverment agancies we should cut to help the budget?
Mr. Mark Brown called me yesterday morning. I sent the first call to voicemail and they immediately called me back, so I answered. He said "Hello Miss C, I am a federal crime investigator and I believe you have lied." I said, "I think you have the wrong number." He said, " NO I DON'T I HEARD YOUR VOICEMAIL, I KNOW IT IS YOU." I hung up. I researched the number and saw that it was scammers. I called the Federal Trade Commission and reported it to them. They said if it is federal they aren't going to call and give you a heads up, they will be at your doorstep to arrest you. TRUE! I called the local sheriff and reported it. The deputy tried calling this number and a lady answered. The deputy told her who he was and asked what company she worked for, she said The Federal Crime Investigation. He asked her, her name and she said she don't know because she has short term memory loss. So he asked her if my name was in their system and she said NO! They are a bunch of scammers! DON'T fall for their tricks. They want money. They need to be caught! DON'T LET THEM SCARE YOU!
