Scam

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 such as pretending to be fake pharmacies, posing as fake Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple representatives, and pretending to offer credit cards and student loan forgiveness, some of these phantom debt collection scams are committed by Americans, but many phantom debt scams also come from East Indians using text-to-speech translation software to generate a pre-recorded message without a foreign accent. 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 often 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 synthesized speech may also be recorded in Spanish or Chinese to target immigrants. 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 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.

Scam
Caller Name: Number as above

Keeps calling will not give information. Say there going to garnish wages for past debt. Which is total crap. I made the mistake of calling back. Said I owed past debt. Not even my correct name. But a married name from 30 yrs ago. Then she said my full ss#. I have notified proper authorities. They said block caller. It’s a scam. Had to notify all my credit cards, bank, and my attorney. This is bull.

Government Scam
Caller Name: unknown

Indicated the message was for someone else regarding a statement for a "legal matter". When I called to let them know they had a wrong number (like very wrong, the number has been mine for 15 years) the operator hung up on me.

Debt Collector
Caller Name: Sheila Brooks

I got the same exact call, and they even called my sister. One thing to be careful: IF you happen to speak with someone, do NOT say words like "yes", "that's correct", or any other affirmative phrases. I've heard of scams where they get you to say them, and then piece together a "recorded phone call" of them asking you a question, like is this your debt, and they then have your recorded voice saying "yes." Best thing to do is just block. Reputable collection agencies will tell you who they are and who they represent.

Scam

Caller identifies as BLAH BLAH for case #XXXXXXX for their client and says you either call them or they will contact you at work. You can avoid them coming to your work by calling and giving them information. Lack of company name, client name, and Robo component is why this looks very much like spam.
