I got a call at work today. Called them back from home. What a joke. Couldn't provide me any information. I asked for an address, and of course, New York City, NY. So I thought I'd have fun with them. Started singing, "New York" and thought I'd do a little Neil Diamond "America" lol. I got passed around to 3 different officers, and one, Officer Johnson, was rather funny. I decided to ask him about his "Johnson", and he offered me $5000 to make a movie with me!!! Once I was done having fun, told them I recorded the entire conversation, and would be submitting it to my attorney. They quickly hung up. That should take care of that. lol

Here's another number they called me on today - 760-565-8060.  They have also had the receptionist at my job in tears calling for another employee.  They just call and call and call - like 100 times a day and keep lighting up all of the lines on her switchboard.  And she can't just not answer the phone - it's a business, so she never knows when it's legitimate.  She finally gave them to our CEO and they told him that they were going to run him over with a bus!  Whatever you do don't pay these people.  If there are any legal actions against you you will be personally served paperwork from an officer of the law.  I feel so bad because I know that there are people who get scared when they hear lawsuit, lawyer, court, jail, etc. and just pay up.  Think of all of the little old ladies these people have scammed.  JERKS!

They have started in with a new number now (347-697-1454), so the game begins again!  Anyone who did not see my last post, here it is again with some creative ideas on how to deal with these idiots:

"OK, first off, everyone CALM DOWN and don?t freak out about these guys.  No matter what they say or what they threaten, they CAN?T do anything to you.  I know every one of us has tried filing reports with law enforcement, FTC, FBI, ic3, etc.  It doesn?t seem to work, because these guys aren?t even in the USA.  So take a deep breath, relax and don?t let them ruffle your feathers.

Now, I started getting these calls about a year ago.  I have personally used all of the tactics below, and they do stop calling me for about 6 months?so the way I figure it, a little time out of my day to give them back a taste of their own medicine is worth it for 6 months of peace and quiet.  Keep in mind, as well, every minute you spend screwing with them on the phone is a minute they are NOT able to scam someone else.  (And the only way they will ever stop is if nobody pays them any money ever again!)  And now for the fun part?how to screw with them back.  I will start with the easiest and move up the line with the more time consuming:

If you have no time to mess with them:
a.    Just don?t pick up the line.  Let it go to voicemail and delete the message.
b.    Pick up the line and immediately hang up.  Keep doing it until they stop.
c.    Pick up the line and use an air horn or police whistle blown straight into the mouthpiece of the phone.  (I personally like the canned airhorn the best.)
d.    If they call while you are driving, turn the radio up as loud as possible and answer the line on speakerphone.  Don?t say anything, just let them listen to the blasting music.  Heavy metal music works best, but I personally have a CD with Star Spangled Banner on it, so I play that as loud as I can.  Just leave the line open with the music blasting until they hang up.

If you have a little more time to mess with them:
a.    Ask if they are related to the deceased (insert your name here as the ?deceased?) or just a family friend, because ?the viewing of the body if for family only, but the memorial service is open to everyone.?  Ask if they would like directions to the funeral.
b.    Simply tell them that you have read all about their scam on the internet & seen it on the news on TV, so you aren?t paying anything.  Don?t listen to any response, just hang up on them after saying this.
c.    Use this one only if you are willing to be as crude as they are:  Using the name they gave you (i.e., ?Officer Mike Taylor? was the last one I got), say, ?Is the this THE Officer Mike Taylor I read about on the internet?  Is it true what the posts online say, that you have such a small d**k that even camels won?t have sex with you??  Then hang up on them.
d.    (For this one, I must first apologize to PETA and all vegans, but it highly offends the scammers because they consider cows to be divine beings.)  Tell them you don?t have time to speak with them, because you work at a slaughter house and you have over 100 cattle you need to ?kill off? before the end off the day.  Then hang up on them.
e.    Are you good with theatrics?  Then try this one?it was actually highly effective for me:  Put on your deepest, scariest, growliest voice and just whisper into the phone over and over, ?I command the demons to come for you, I command the demons to come for you, I command the demons to come for you??.  Just keep whispering it over and over until they hang up.  I think this one worked well because they are quite superstitious.
f.    If you know a foreign language, answer the phone in it and just keep talking in unintelligible phrases.  The more obscure the language, the better.  Don?t know a foreign language?  Pig Latin seems to work just as effectively.
g.    Ask if they are calling from the convenience store, and can they give you last night?s winning lottery numbers, because you are sure you have won.  For any response they give to it, just keep yelling over and over, ?I won! I won!?
h.    When you answer the phone, ask them where your pizza is and tell them because they didn?t get it to you in the ?30 minutes?, you?re not paying for it.  Hang up.
i.    Tell them you are at work right now, but to call you back on your ?home? phone, and give them this number: 202-835-0778.  (This is the scam and fraud reporting division number at the FBI.)  Hang up.

If you are REALLY p***ed off, and have plenty of time to screw with them:

a.    Go on to Craig?s List and post an ad in the wanted section or services section  saying you are looking for a payday loan company because you need a loan.  Ask they call you right away.  List the scammer?s name and phone number as the contact information.  (This sends the scum-sucking bottom feeders off to call the other scum sucking bottom feeders?LOL)
b.    Go online and look for every free daily horoscope, free insurance quote, free mortgage lending, etc., and click on the ?have an agent contact me? link.  Type in the scammer?s name and phone number.  Viola!  Now they will get flooded with telemarketers as well.
c.    If you would like to blow off steam, and have no problem with swearing, just keep calling them over and over pretending you have Tourette?s Syndrome by just screaming obscenities in the phone until they hang up.  This works pretty good in the car, because no one else can hear you and it is a good tension reliever.
d.    Log onto these payday loan sites and enter all of the scammers? information on it.  This way they might even wind up on their own list!
e.    (Do NOT attempt this one unless you have state of the art spyware & virus protection, and even then, you still are taking a risk):  Go into your spam folder on your computer.  Find every email you can about ?you won millions of dollars? or ?the Nigerian lottery? or something to that effect.  Send it back with all of the scammers? contact information.
f.    Research for the phone numbers to both local and national TV news stations ?breaking news desk?.  Again, tell the scammer on the phone to call you at your ?work number? and give the number to the news station?s phone number.  (Hopefully, if the news stations get enough of these calls, they will start airing more stories about it, reaching more people and reduce the number of victims that fall for this.)

Again, before sending money to ANYONE, stop. Think.  Do you have any paperwork showing you owe money?  If not, ask for paperwork.  If they refuse to send it, they are scammers.  A real collection agency will always: 1. provide paperwork; 2. never yell or cuss at you; 3. never require you to pay first before receiving paperwork; 4. never identify themselves as an officer of law enforcement; 5. never threaten you with jail, arrest or physical harm.

Good luck everyone, and if you need any help or suggestions, feel free to email me at rockk9s@aol.com."

I have received a call stating in a heavy middle eastern accent that he was a cop and I would be going to jail if I did not call him back. These people are ridiculous. So I called him 30 times in a row. Take that and stick it wher the sun does not shine scammer.

From what I have been able to find out about these scammers is that they are operating out of Pakistan and India .
They are using VOIP and computers to decieve their victims into thinking they are in the US thus the area codes that show on a caller id are bogus and not traceable..
Wish they would call me so I could have a little entertainment as well.

Wow, same old tricks glad I didn't fall for it! 347-697-1454 is the number I was given to call. But received calls from 972-773-3445. Still identifying themselves with "american" names. The first was Eric Williams. I refused to give any information and was given to a "lawyer" who introduced himself as "officer williams" I asked for his company name: Financial Fraud and Investigations Department. I then asked what his full name is he refused. I said I wanted to know so I could help. He said "Ronnie Williams" I asked you state you are an officer, your previous person said you were a lawyer. He then proceeded to tell me no I am a paralegal. i said well I know my rights and you can't threaten harass or intimidate me. He said yes I can and I am calling your work. I told him go ahead you don't know anything about me and can't get any information. He has called my work approximately 3 times. Each time upsetting the receptionists. I hope this is the last time but who knows
