This number is a magic jack number. The person (young woman) behind it uses Facebook and other social media sites. Advertising she can make you money by adding zeros to the amount you send. 200 into 2000 and so on. Claiming to work for GreenDot company in their office. Using others from the site or pictures of people holding lots of cash in their hands. Saying "another satisfied client." Fake.major scam. She needs to be stopped. Taking hard earned money from those who are in disparate need. Using pictures of a beautiful woman to lure unsuspecting men and women to send money. Or purchase a GreenDot card and give the numbers. Claiming to return the amount ten fold. Arrest these scaming individuals.

Called me several times at all hours without saying anything. Finally got a Middle Eastern Sounding young man who could not pronounce my name correctly (Which happens to be a very common name in the U.S.)... I informed him that he had the wrong number and he just stayed on the line without speaking. Listening in for any info they can obtain most likely. Social Engineering for sure.... not sure what the scam is, but this is the 3rd strange number that has called myself or a family member... Also, this may be something much bigger. Gov't paid research for example... Obtaining voice samples.... just a thought.

Have had calls a few times. Asked about my computer. I asked which one he was referring to. He said my computer running windows. I said I have several computers and he would have to be more specific. He asked for clarification if he had heard me right about having several computers, I said yes, I have several (it's my hubby's profession). He hung up. I've also mentioned to these guys that I am running Lynux, so windows would be a good trick. I've also asked if this scam has ever actually worked for them. On both occasions they hung up.

They called my dad from 603-856-0867 the first three or four times and I blocked the number. They then called my husbands phone from 505-395-0292 with the name of Jennifer Barber. She said it was pretrial processing. I called them back and was told they didn't have anyone by that name working there and then she said "Oh wait a minute" and put me on hold, no one ever came back on the line. This is a scam! If you have something with a court case they will call from a legitimate phone number and also send some sort of paperwork!
