What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Government robocalls come in a variety of different forms. The most well-known is the IRS scam, where you are threatened with legal action over unpaid taxes. However, scammers may pose as any number of government agencies. Sometimes it's the FBI calling about some suspicion and you'll need to provide your details immediately. Other times it's the Social Security Administration -- your payments will stop unless you give information or money. Occasionally, it is the INS threatening deportation -- you'll have to leave the country unless you pay a big sum of money. These scammers use fear-based tactics to try and get your information or money. Always be cautious any government communication over the phone. Government agencies typically prefer written communication, and government agencies will never use phone communication to discuss debts, payments, or official legal consequences. Government agencies also typically only accept certified checks as payment method -- the "IRS Agent" who wants you to pay via gift cards is definitely a scammer!

Social Security Scam

Fake Social Security extortion scam call by madarchod criminals phoning from India This is a fake Social Security scam call by criminals phoning from India, saying your SS benefits are suspended or threatening to sue you or arrest you. The call begins with a pre-recorded robotic person speaking English that is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam, but then you are transferred to an East Indian scammer who tells you that your Social Security number and/or drivers license has been used in a crime and they need your SSN, drivers license, and credit card number "for verification purposes". The scam often tries to threaten and coerce you into driving to a bank to wire them thousands of dollars. These fake Social Security, IRS, and credit/loan scams either ask for your credit card number or want you to directly wire them money from a bank while they stay on the phone with you. Basically, it is an extortion phone call and these fake IRS and Social Security scams always bombard you with calls from hundreds of different phone numbers. The IRS and Social Security are actually required to mail you paper letters and they will never phone you like this, threaten to sue or arrest you, and demand immediate payment. Warn all your elderly relatives and friends because these pathetic India madarchods have been running Social Security and IRS scams for many years now! 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 such as pretending to be a fake pharmacy, posing as fake Social Security or IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes" or fake bill collectors threatening you for fake unpaid debts, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, and debt, student loan forgiveness, credit card consolidation services, posing as Amazon to falsely say that an unauthorized purchase was made to your account or that your Prime membership was auto-debited from your credit card or bank account, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, pretending to be DHL, UPS, or a bank, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account and routing number, or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers now phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic person speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their India phone room, but then you speak to the East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Scammers often either use disposable VoIP phone numbers or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake names and phone numbers that show up on Caller ID. India scammers often spoof fake toll-free Caller ID numbers that begin with "8". India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling has no effect. I love to play with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and immediately hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, calling them back if their phone number can be phoned, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, always giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, asking them to speak louder and to repeat what they said to use up more of their energy, etc. The best defense against phone scammers is a good offense by not quickly hanging up the phone, but instead toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes to use up more of their time and energy so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never give an unknown caller your credit card number or Social Security number. Companies who already have your information may ask for the last four digits for verification. Some India scammers ask for your bank account and routing number or ask you to wire transfer them a payment, giving a fake explanation that they cannot accept a credit card or personal check. This is an instant scammer alert because scammers can withdraw money if they know your bank account and routing number (e.g. counterfeit cashed checks) and illegal wire transfers are far less traceable than unauthorized credit card charges. India scammers may threaten to have you arrested, but the IRS, Social Security Administration, and debt collectors cannot threaten to arrest or sue you on the phone; they are required to send you paper notices by registered mail. If the scam sounds very authentic, ask the scammer for their verifiable company name, street address, and a callback number, which all real businesses will provide. Every East Indian scammer will immediately fail this test since they all use spoofed fake Caller ID numbers or VoIP numbers that they quickly dispose of. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scammers, usually with a slight or strong East Indian foreign accent, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals. These India scammers belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves, robbers, and rapists who were serving jail sentences and released early due to prison overcrowding.

Government Scam

Left pre-recorded voicemail for me to call back and speak with a federal agent. Called back and got a general voicemail after a few rings (mind you this is a 1877 number). Seems legit right?? Lol.
