I am already a Kaiser Health Plan member in California. The call woke me from sleep. I am a night worker. I was unable to return to sleep, because of this call. Therefore I was unable to serve my next shift and lost a days pay. It is also a mis-use of premium payments I make to Kaiser for my health care. Kaiser already advertises in both print and TV media in my area. It is a waste of time and money for them to advertise in this way.

My parents received a message on their voice mail today from a guy pretending to be an officer calling about a medical claim and they are financially responsible for paying. If they wanted representation they were to call this guy back. Upon listening a couple of time it sounded like he said the "Federal Tax Department" but then went onto talk about a vehicle accident. Please be careful with these calls because they are a SCAM. The number he called from is 202-241-6219 and they weren't the first people this guy has called.

I received a call from this number on 9/16/ 2014 at 6:42 p.m. The man claimed he worked at Microsoft in the Internet Technical Support Department and that his department was receiving information from my computer claiming that I was downloading spam. Said he was going to help me clean it up and then my phone went dead. I immediately called Microsoft and spoke to them and told them about the call and they said they have been receiving MANY calls about this. I gave them the information they requested and they gave me a case number. I was also told that Microsoft NEVER just calls their customers to tell them they are receiving information from a customers computer without actually interacting with the customer at the same time they are RECEIVING the information that they ASKED for from the customer.

I received a call today as well from the middle-eastern-accented "Steve Martin". I was not familiar with the number showing on my caller ID so I let it go to my answering machine. He was so bold as to leave a lengthy recorded message with some threats as well as leaving his phone number for us to call back with the same scripting as one of the posts above about appearing before a grand jury and magistrate judge! Now that I have seen reports on my local news today and found these comments - I truly want to call him back and MESS WITH HIM!!!!!
