SMI reported this to I called HHS Consumer Protection @ , Also , Thank You Dr- Collins I am in Australia and I received the same message as you- Thank you for posting this scam on line- I must be due for one more scam as I received a telephone scam saying they were calling from Microsoft I called this number back from an unregistered prepaid mobile phone- I got a pre-recorded (possibly non-human) message identifying the company as American Coradius International (ACI)- According to the best available research, ACI has been operating as a debt collection agency out of Amherst, NY- There are also many complaints about how they operate outside of FDCPA guidelines This female phoned and stated that she was from Prince Georges Circuit Court and calling on behalf of Brenda somebody who was filing a charge against me- Please return her call , Don't feed into this- It should be a law against this My son has also recieved several calls, all hours day and night, on his cell from this number- He likes to say a few choice words to them: I called them back and got the same middle-eastern message as others have stated- Pressed the option - Left a message stating that if they did call again I was reporting them to the local police- I guess we'll see Robo call saying there is an IRS lawsuit against me to call back before it is sent to courts- Left messages today- ( ) I called back they say IRS - male with heavy accent- I ask who it is and why they are calling me and he asked me who I was- I would not say he would not say He mispronounced VAGINAL once I could understand him- Said he was from Compensation dept and I kept asking from what company , Then he finally put me on the line with a supervisor- I could understand her but it sounded like one of the firms you see on TV,looking for business They have been calling me repeatedly for about a month now- I finally answered a couple of weeks ago, could barely understand the person on the other end but told them I am not interested in anything they are trying to sell me and to quit calling- Last Friday, they called every hour for most of the day- I picked up twice, said "don't call me anymore" and hung up- They have called twice today but only let it ring once before they disconnected- I am going to start blowing a whistle in their ear everytime they call- Maybe that will get them to stop, Spammers trying to sell copier stuff- OBVIOUS TELEMARKETER FRAUD Here is the message from my receptionist: "I received a call from Shawn- He is a part of the Customer Service for the Copier that is in your office- He needs the serial number on the front- However, he hung up before I was able to transfer or get his phone number- His caller ID was ," Caller ID says "DISTRIBUTION SV"- Better Business Bureau has no record on them- California Secretary of State has no record on them- BEWAREThe caller, GEORGIA CALL ( displayed as ID on our - ), called us @ - noon, , FTC suggest us do not answer unwanted call on the spot- I returned the call hiding my name, a man answer & kept asking" Who you are?
" I asked him why he called & what company-" He hung me up-Caller: GEORGIA CALLReceived a call from a company saying they would reduce my mortgage- Don't have a mortgage, so tried to connect to a person to be removed from calling list- When a black male picked up, I said "you simply must stop calling this number-" Said male replied "oh, I am quaking in my boots, I'm so scared of what you'll do if we don't stop calling you-" Wowza- He identified my number, then asked for my name, to which I replied "sorry, you are now on my 'do-not-talk-to list'" and hung up- Twenty minutes later, same auto call, connected to person again (out of curiosity)- Female (anita) - asked for a manager, refused to connect me, then told me she could not transfer a call from that phone line, but gave me the number , to reach a manager- When I connected through, the voicemail box was full- Yeah- Anita gave me a company name of "family first home preservation services," which is clearly bogus- Also a # , Did a * on the original call, and it was a #Scam- It's a recording, not a real person, that says it's the IRS and you need to call them back with payment or you will go to jail.
The bank doesn't even care, I asked to speak with someone in the fraud investigations, and all the agent told me is that she'd be happy to issue me another card- Too bad- They mustlose a lot of money, and we all end up paying Received calls from this number on my cell phone last night at :, :, and :- messages a fax trying to come in, what company faxes people that late at night- Doesn't seem to matter whether you are on the do not call list or not, seems like a bunch of crap You can report them, but most of these calls are spoofed numbers, and some of the scammers are not in the US- But it is a scam and fraud: Its ILLEGAL to ask for money to receive it-Prize Offers: You Don?
