I keep getting a call for someone who doesn't live in my house and they are harassing me and I cannot get them to stop. I told them I was not who they were looking and he asked me if I was sure...
The 3 numbers that called me were 202-241-7570, 202-241-7736 & 202-241-7777. They will not take no for an answer. Told them I had reported them for harassment. They kept calling. Would not tell me what I have done. Sounds like a scam to me.
He called me back to back I just block him he even called my job. Ugh he is something else!
Yes it is.. And many of the posts above have noted this with the links.. But here it is again. It is a scam!
DEA Extortion scam
Report Extortion Scam: 1-877-792-2873
Got a call from Washington dc from an agent mr.miller said he was dea said my name came up and i had to pay 489.00 or be prosecuted and go to jail he gave me a code cpo9xyt1135 and the phone was 202 241 2001 is this a scam????
i was called from this number 202-241- 4905 and some guy with an indian accent claiming to be Logan Smith saying there is an arrest warrant out for me and the local police are on their way to come pick me up. Then he transferred me to another "colleague" whose name was Ronald Arthur with another indian accent and he gave me a warrant number. Then the guy hung up. The problem was that these people had a lot of info about me: name, address, relative names.
No worries everyone it's a scam. He hacked your info from somewhere you did business with. Fwd the email to firstname.lastname@example.org... I just got the same precise email and dollar amount this morning. He had all my personal info on the email which businesses don't do. He wants you to think it's a real debt and problem and it's not. If he calls you tell him to give you his address and phone number so you can have your attorney call him. Most likely he will hang up because he is a scam usuing different names. He appears to have been doing this since 2011. By law he's supposed to tell you who he is, where he's calling from and his location and number, but because he's a scam he will tell you he can't and you can tell him that's against the law. Then say, "i will have my attorney call you right back" He will hang up I'm sure. Also, know your state because most states won't allow payday loans to sue you and if you filed BK after getting the payday loans, you are surely in the clear. Rest & relax and laugh at him because his scam is out now.

This email has been making the rounds for some time. It is a FAKE. IGNORE IT!!! The writer is no more an attorney than I am King of Sweden.
I received an email today from Michael Davis from Kelty & Law Associates. Number one thing is that he talked backwards and spelled wrong. It's ok for us to do that, but not a professional. He had all my personal info in the email trying to make it appear real, but I'm sure he hacked someone I was in communication with online. Sad, but ignore and report. Play a loud noise in their ear the next time they call and tell them to give you their name & addy so you can have your attorney call him. Most likely he will hang up.
I just received the same email. First off in the state of California it is forbidden to press charges for a payday loan period! Second, in the state of California payday loan companies are only legally allowed to try and withdraw money Two times, not six, regardless if it was an in store loan or an online loan. His email has multiple grammar mistakes and word for word I received the exact same one minus the name and social security number. Its best to contact the states attorney generals office and the FTC. You can also file a police report. Let social security administration know that someone has gotten ahold of your social security number and contact the credit bureaus and place a fraud alert on your records. I emailed the company back and let them know exactly what I was doing.
I just received the same email - they have my home address, phone number, and SSN- it is word for word - do not believe a word of it - it is a scam- REPORT THEM . First of all, they don't even know how to write a professional letter -let alone anything else- I am reporting them - they buy this information from someone -
This is an email that i Just received.Can someone tell me what this is .I checked with a couple of friends and they stated it was a scam. In the state of California I was told that even if you do owe any money regardless of what it may be it does not go directly to them.There are certain process that they go through before even letting it reach that far.Is this true .Please someone give me advice on what I should do

Scam some Indian guy acting as an American IRS agent . IT is a scam. JUST HANG UP >
I also got a call from the same guy, Officer Carsy Thorson from the Drug Enforcement Administration Narcotics division 7-6 in Washington D.C. district of Columbia. I think this is him name, but it was hard to understand. He claimed that he was a DEA agent and that my name came up in their on-going investigation. Basically, he told me that if I didn't "pay my fine" they would come arrest me, and he was trying to save me the embarrassment of this. He also said that the reason he is "offering" me this deal is because my record was clean. At first I was shocked and scared, but then my common sense kicked in and realized that what he was saying didn't add up. While I was on the phone with him, I got on the computer and typed in the telephone number he called from. Immediately, multiple blogs said that they got the same call, and this was a scam. When I told him that the DEA would not ask for money, and they wouldn't "offer a deal" over the phone. Of course he denied it and said that he WAS the DEA. He eventually hung up on me. Oh, and the funny part is that he had police scanners in the background to make it sound real. I read on someone else's blog the exact same line of bull$hit. Unfortunately, these people have scammed others out of thousands of dollars!
This sounds like the same caller who called me from California. It is a scam....they want you to send them money. Last time they told me they are from the IRS. Can't understand anything else he is saying.

A class action lawsuit is pending against UPMC in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The action alleges that UPMC is legally at fault for allowing the data breach to occur, and it is brought on behalf of all affected employees.
received a call from a Mack Davis, broken accent. He was asking for my wife. He said that she needed to call him back immediately or face criminal charges. I asked what it pertained to, he said it was a legal matter involving a payday loan company. I told him that I have been receiving calls like this all week, either for me or my wife. Yesterday I contacted the FBI, the states Attorney Generals office and the FTC. I asked this person who he worked for, he said the Financial Crime Department, I said of what agency and what is your address. He said that he could not give it to me. I told him that he is breaking the law, I told him that I have a do not call list and I also wanted his address to send a Cease and Desist letter, that he could be facing criminal charges. He got mad and hung up. They have called three more times since then.
Keep receiving calls from this number, different people everyday. However, they all had the same strong accent that I hardly could understand. One person was talking about a surgery I did half year ago ( I never had any surgery) and he was from department of health; one person told me about $5000 from a company (really couldn't understand his English, whether I owed that company or that company owed me). For one of the calls, I told the guy name Mike that I needed to talk to his superviser. He then kept saying , "num num num num num... ..." It seems that no way I could stop the calls. Next time, I would just simply tell them, "wrong numbers".
This person called me today. Exact same game. When I told him I would check with my attorney, he hung up.
Don't fall for it.
Got the exact same message from Special Agent William Wright this morning requesting that I wire money to the Dominican Republic to pay a fine from medication that I ordered 4 months ago...quite scary actually! Thank you Michelle for the information, I called the DEA's office and notified them of all information - SCAMMERS! Why is this not against the LAW!!!
Don't ever give anyone money who contacts you via phone. That means everyone. You do not know if the person really represents a charity, political candidate, or any other legitimate cause. If I get called for any request for money over the phone I always politely state back I do not provide anyone money over the phone but if they send me info via mail I would be glad to review it. I don't think I've ever gotten any follow up mail from anyone. Think of how many times you may have gave to a cause over the phone and you have no idea who the people were. Just because they say they are MDA or FOP or whatever cause it is does not make it true. They can say anything they want. If you want to give, look up the number of the organization and call them instead. Then you know exactly who you are dealing with.
We all work hard for our money. Don't give it to scammers.
They called about a federal Grant money available to me. They wanted my account number and when I didnt give it they gave me a call back number that i didn't call. BEAWARE OF THIS>>>>>

They called me today. and they told me the same thing when I didn't comply. Then I told them that if they were going to do all that, then i was just going to kill myself. They went along with me for a little while and when they thought i was serious, they asked me to call 9-1-1., then i asked them how that they felt about that and they said they didn't really care. Then they asked me why would I do that ? I said that my life was over with and they asked why and i said because i just can't face my 3 year old child and my husband. then they asked me if i wanted to s*** a d*** instead? I asked them if they felt bad about trying to scam everyone and they said," no". they said that they lived day to day and barely had any money and so they were going to take from the rich and give it to the poor people...just like Obama. There were at least 3 people involved. two males and 1 female and i could here a dog in the background. I asked them if they lived in Puerto Rico and they said no F**K the puerto ricans! i asked them i they lived in Washington, DC and they asked if i had ever been to Pennsylvania Ave and I said no. Why? and they said that is where the DEA is and i said Have you ever been there and they said yes. I then asked them if they knew that they're scam was all over the internet and they said yes they knew and they said that they were big time and collecting money left and right and they would soon have enough money to pass on to their kids and their kids' kids.
It appears they are trying to claim they are DEA from previous posts here.. And of course it is illegal to impersonate any officer be it civil or federal..

Received a voice mail from this # threatening to take me to court. They even said the last 4 digits of my SSN. ??? He did not say what it was for or identify himself or company. He said if I don't return the call and take care of this "unknown" debt, he will be contacting my employer next. I had to listen to the message 3x because he was so hard to understand.
got a call from william wright..using another # 202-241-5691
the man said his name was William Rice or something like that he is calling from a new number 2022415691.
Special Agent Wm. Wright got me good, to the tune of $1850.00 on same premise as others here. I am an educated woman usually hip to scammers, but he had my purchase history, my home address, etc. I was in total shock thinking I could be taken into federal custody for no more than one little internet purchase. I sent the money to Dominican Republic as instructed. I thought it was kind of strange, but didn't do my own investigation until the day after I sent the money, when fake agent told me I had to re-send...another $1,000. I am going to harass him one thousand, eight hundred and fifty times on his phone. Just think I should get my money's worth! Wm. Wright has created mucho BAD ju-ju for himself and I intend to see that he gets it. Passing along family curse to him now...he has messed with the WRONG person! Believe it.
I received a phone call from a guy calling himself Dave Dixon, he said my credit card number was chosen randomly and that I had just won $5 million and a silver Mercedes-Benz. I just can't believe my good luck, I know a scam when I see one. The phone numbers he gave me for reference are as follows:
202-241-9568 also 876-259-0643 also 876-481-2561
I searched them on the internet and they led me to this page.........hope this helps someone out there.....Mike
