Scam
Caller Name: Yet another scammer calling from India!!!!

Yet another one of the thousands of scammers phoning from India. Debt collection scams are exploding this year due to the pandemic with more people both being at home and being in debt. I have received at more than 12-15 calls from fake debt collectors this year. I just have one mortgage paid monthly and one Visa card that is fully paid every month. The scammers will tell you anything to try to trick you. Read the "December 29, 2019" comment that someone previously posted here. Very informative! And remember this... scammers can spoof a fake Caller ID number faster than you can change your underwear and just because a scammer asks for you by your name means nothing since phone listings with names and addresses are widely available. So just because the Caller ID looks familiar and they say your name means nothing. A single scammer can quickly dial several thousand numbers everyday. Unsolicited caller: Strike 1! Unsolicited caller with a foreign accent: Strike 2! Unsolicited caller with a foreign accent saying that you owe money and asking for your credit card, banking, and Social Security numbers: Strike 3, they're out!

Thank you! Alas someone who knows how and what to address re these excessive and abusive calls. Ironic when you get a call from your own home number and name! Sadly so many less educated and more disturbing elderly are scared out of their life savings. Good luck everyone. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and educating us ..

Scam

I agree with all the previous comments except for the one by "Marty". WTF, Marty??? This phone scam has NOTHING to do with someone named "Cannon" in Michigan as mentioned in a previous post by a "Marty" user who is obviously trying to get some kind of personal revenge on a "John Cannon" by trying to get him in trouble by posting onto robokiller numbers that obviously are not related to a someone named "Cannon" smh. If you know the exact name and address of criminals, you report it to law enforcement and not as fake information on discussion forums and social media. This "Marty" dude is obviously the "stalker" that he talks about smh.

Scam

This is a phantom debt collection scam by criminals phoning from India! 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. 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 ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple representatives. Another version of these phantom debt collection scams is the frequent extortion scams perpetrated solely by East Indians posing as Social Security or IRS officers threatening to sue or arrest you for fake unpaid back taxes. This scam call 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, fake names of the debt collector handling your fake debts, fake ID codes for your fake debt, 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 then asked to either press "1" or phone them back, often at a different number since these scams spoof hundreds of fake Caller ID numbers, and then you actually speak to the East Indian scammer. The scammer then asks for your Social Security number and either tells you that you can settle the debt by paying with a credit card or demands that you wire transfer then the payment for the fake debt or asks you for your bank account and routing number. 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 mail you a printed-on-paper "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 all of the East Indian scammers use spoofed fake 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.
