I received a similar call from a lady and said her name is zebinisha, I trusted my guts on this one. She confirmed my date of birth, address where I stay which were correct, she then requested that I confirm my banking details, which I refused to give away she then gave me a telephone number and a reference number. I wanted to know where they are based so I can go and collect my so called money. These people are out there to bankrupt us.

I won’t deny that I had a tough time dealing with these unwanted survey calls. But the other day I saw a post from the company responsible for these calls on a complaint forum and decided to call the grievance cell of the company. They greeted me cordially and listened to me patiently, took my details and promised me that I will not receive any calls henceforth. I did not believe that they will keep their promise, but they actually did. For the past 5 days I have not received a single call from this number. Now that’s some prompt action.

This man wants to send me two million dollars to be transfer into my bank account. Now he needs my bank information to make the transfer. He said that is his pay for a job he has done in the gulf. He also needs my social security number so someone from the UK can come with two boxes of money and documents for me to hold this until he gets back. Please beware of this man. The name he is using is Phil Adams or Adams Phil.

They call from this number to confirm your interest in in the "Lincoln Date Night Promotion". This is where they let you test drive a Lincoln for up to 48 hrs. and give you a $100 gift card for dinner. The gift card is actually a Mastercard that can be used anywhere. They usually call in response to a call that you made to them indicating your interest in purchasing a Lincoln. When returning my calls, they always left a message. I've personally taken advantage of this program and so have other members of my family. The name on the caller ID shows up as "Jackson Dawson". I hope this was helpful.

This was a phishing robo call. I get a lot of these calls every day, either on my landline or cell phone number. It's always the same kind of call but rarely from the same number. When I search the web I find that many other people are getting the same call from the same number at almost the same time. I can't ask them to stop calling because it's a robo call.

Calls from this number began about one week ago. The connection quality is poor. The calls seem to drop. There is no immediate reply to my "Hello?" which has to be repeated several times. There is static and background noise. I have spoken to two callers. Both have asked for "Marcie". I have told them they have a wrong number and that I have received many calls from this same number. I was told i would be removed from their list. I have filed complaints at DoNotCall.gov (888-382-1222). My number has been listed for several years on the permanent Do Not Call list.

Reported 30, Jul. 2014.

Left message; said he was from Criminal investigation unit of IRS and that claim was brought against me and my physical property. I read that IRS does not make calls, they send letters. We searched this number and it is Seattle, WA. This has nothing to do with IRS in my state. I am not going to return this call.

This is the third call from this number in the last two weeks and since this number is registered on the do not call registry and a cell phone for which must pay for call time, enough is enough.

this company called me from a different # a week or so ago(complaint filed), when you call the # back they ask you to enter your phone # (i did not, i entered THEIR phone# and it states your # has been removed from our list) doubt it... :) when it asks you if you want to speak with a rep. you just remain on hold. they give you another # to call as well. i have been on the do not call registry (the real one) for years, this is the first time i have had a problem and it's the same company.

Got a call from this number claiming to represent the IRS. Since the guy could barely speak English I was incredulous, to say the least. When he said my wife would be arrested by a "local cult" I was convinced it was a scam. Don't be fooled folks, the IRS never initiates legal action via the phone.
