Scam
Caller Name: This is a phantom debt collection scam!

This is what the Federal Trade Commission calls a phantom debt collection scam where the scammer pretends to be a debt collector, lawyer, or law enforcement and threatens to sue or arrest you using harassment (repeated phone calls), lies, threats, and intimidation to collect on fake debts that you do not owe. Although more than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day, these phantom debt collection scams have been committed by both American and East Indian scammers. Another version of these phantom debt collection scams is the frequent scams committed solely by East Indians posing as Social Security or IRS officers threatening to sue or arrest you for fake unpaid back taxes. In all phantom debt collection scams perpetrated by both India or American scammers, the scam often begins with a pre-recorded message that includes robotic text-to-speech customizations of the message to call you by your name in order to make the message sound like a personal phone call and to gain your trust. It is easy to acquire huge phone database listings of millions of names associated with phone numbers and addresses and have the robo-dialer automatically say your name. The pre-recorded message usually also references vague and fake financial accounts that are unpaid, and they often falsely say "our numerous attempts to contact you at your home and workplace have been unsuccessful and this is our final attempt", which is all false and intended to make it sound urgent. You are usually then prompted to press "1" and then you actually speak to the American or East Indian scammer. Here is how to tell the difference between a real debt collector and a scammer: A debt collector must tell you information about your debt such as the name of the creditor, the exact amount owed, and if you dispute the debt, the debt collector has to obtain verification of the debt. A scammer either avoids providing this information or provides false information. A debt collector has to send you a written "validation letter" within five days of first contacting you. If you do not dispute the debt in writing within 30 days, the debt collector has the right to assume the debt is valid. Scammers always pressure you to settle the debt immediately, often demanding that you make a money transfer from you bank that can be untraceable; this is very common with East Indian scammers posing as debt collectors and fake IRS officers. A scammer may threaten to tell your family and employer about your debts, but a real debt collector can only ask other people about your address, phone number, and place of employment; they cannot tell other people about your debts. Scammers will ask for your bank account and routing numbers and Social Security number, whereas real debt collectors will not. Ask the debt collector for their name, company name, street address, and a callback number, which all real debt collectors will provide. Every one of the thousands of East Indian scammers will also immediately fail this test since nearly all of the East Indian scams use spoofed Caller ID numbers or disposable VoIP numbers. If you suspect a scam, contact the creditor the debt collector claims to be working for and find out who has been assigned to collect the debt.
