5-5-2015....Also did a call back twice to get the instant message that it belonged to a skype user. First call back the dude was pressing for my name. Provided first name only and asked what the business was. Dude got more agitated and sounded Oriental but possibly Indian in descent. I hung up. Sent a text message back and now got a message 24 hours later calling me a dick-wad and saying something about my dog being in his yard and should he come down to talk to me. It appears by doing a google search for the number that others dating back years have had a similar issue.

Skype What it is the person that is calling you is on a computer through Skype services.Three dollars a month I get unlimited PC to landlines or cell. the reason why you can not call this number back is because the person call you have not pay the extra fee to have people call them back from landlines or cell to PC Skype user. If you can not here the person clears is most likely is their mic is junk.I just got this service today and do not know about the scammers using this service or if this service is a scam.

They are a scam!  I just got a phone call on my cell phone from 661-748-0240,  really heavy accent Indian very hard to understand.  He tried to tell me that he was from Microsoft and that I had a virus installed on my computer and it needs to be removed.  He said they sent me an email and I never replied.  I asked him what is the purpose of this phone call?  He said it was just to let me know.  Well I think he just told me that because I wasn't very nice,  I have heard and read about all the scams the Nigerians, Indians out of the country scams that they try and succeed at stealing from innocent people.  I don't have a computer, only at work, and he was trying to give me an ip address.  If i had a computer I wouldn't know if it was my ip address, who memorizes those numbers?  any ways I googled the number after we hung up and sure enough he has taken money from innocent people.  Please don't fall for scammers and never ever give credit card numbers or checking account numbers to anyone on the phone.....

All of you who they are telling they are from England, Germany, India or whatever...that is the first indication of a scam. 661 area code is Bakersfield CA. They are using that number as a turn around in order to hide their real number since that is a skype phone number. All of you that are getting scammed might want to try this...Anytime you get a call from any unknown number do not answer. Instead google the number first and if they are legit= IE no reports filed you can always call them back, preferably from a blocked number. Good Luck all.?

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

This number is the same for any one using Skype. That usually means they are calling from outside the US. It doesn't necessarily mean scam but a bigger company would generally pay for their intl staff to have access to a US number for dialing. So use your own judgement.

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers. Even though Skype is sometimes used by SCAMMERS, such as the cases listed here, it is certainly possible that someone may call you with this number who is TOTALLY LEGIT. So if you have friends or relatives who use Skype, don't be surprised if this phone number shows up in your caller ID.

That number is used by Skype for telephone calls.  It is not tied to a specific person. When you use Skype to make a call, it grabs one of many numbers they have allocated. There is not a good way to trace who actually called you

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

Some woman (who sounds like she has an Asian accent and is a little slow) keeps calling me from this number and then immediately from an unkown number. She did this several times today after I hung up on her.

Got a call yesterday from this number..just happened to notice it as I was checking Caller ID  since we don't have voice mail. The number 661-748-0240 appeared above as "BKFD MAIN, CA.I did not, nor do I plan to, call the number back, but out of curiousity as to its validity, came to this website to check it out. I see that several of you have posted complaints, etc about this number. I'll be ignoring it as I do many others that appear to be scams...next step is to discontinue service!

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

What do you mean by that?  I have a fixed phone number from skype that I pay for and pay to call landlines and cell phones. You have to have a paid skype account to call landline phones and cell phones. It would not be a random number.  It is only free calling skype to skype and there is no phone number involved there.

This is a Skype number.  Meaning someone is calling your phone from their Skype account, and it the call is routed through this particular number. The number is not owned by any single user but is randomly assigned from a bank of numbers Skype has.  From minute to minute this number might be used by a trusted friend calling you on Skype, or a spammer who is using Skype.  There's no telling.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with SuperAntiSpyware -- it's not a "rogue virus," it's a legitimate program to detect and remove malware and tracking cookies and such. It's listed on Wikipedia and you can check for yourself -- how much "research" did you actually do on this? My guess is they installed a FAKE antivirus program and told you it was SuperAntiSpyware.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

Got a call from 661-748-0240 and said hello twice no one replyed so I said if you're not going to say anything forget it and if you're a sales call don't call here again and I hung up and immediately blocked that number! Now I see on here that some people say they have received a call from this same number and the caller says they are from Microsoft, WATCH OUT EVERYONE!!! I heard on the news not that long ago that people are calling saying they are from Microsoft but they are not and are trying to steal your info off of peoples computers and putting virous' ( sorry if spelled wrong ) on them so hang up if they say they are from Microsoft!!! Also my caller ID showed call4me2012 where the callers name should be.

For what it's worth, I just got a call on my cell from this number and I thought the same thing...a scam (which is how I ended up on this site).   However, my husband (traveling in the EU) called about 1 min later on my cell and asked if I was available to Skype.  He confirmed that the call did come from him....he was using his iPad to Skype and that is the number that displayed on my phone.No doubt there ARE scammers out there using this, but if you have friends/family who live far away or who may be traveling, double check with them to make sure it wasn't one of them trying to Skype with you.

9/5/2012. Just got a call from "Mike" from England from skype number 661-748-0240. Said he'd just received a phishing scam email emanating from my website asking for his hsbc bank account number and wanted me to type a url into my computer. I refused as I felt that url may give him access to my computer and that HE may be the scammer. The url ended in ......./index.php. He identified his email as mike.j482@gmail.com, which is no doubt fake.Anyway, seems he is a putrescent pile of scumbag vomit.

You're an IDIOT!  Why do people like to speak on subjects they know nothing about? Either stupid or lazy I guess.The FTC is not supplying free calling lists to commercial telemarketers. FYI: Companies are required by law to pay a stiff fee in order to access the DNC list, there is no choice in the matter. Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

The Do Not Call List has become the problem, not the solution. They make the lists available free of charge to telemarketers so they know who not to call. In fact, the FTC is providing telemarketers a list of good, live telephone numbers that they would otherwise have to pay for.

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

This is a Skype number.  Meaning someone is calling your phone from their Skype account, and it the call is routed through this particular number. The number is not owned by any single user but is randomly assigned from a bank of numbers Skype has.  From minute to minute this number might be used by a trusted friend calling you on Skype, or a spammer who is using Skype.  There's no telling.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get. How can I get my money back from June 2012. who can we report this scammer to so it stops and is Microsoft aware of this? I have changed my password on several accounts.

We had that happened a few times. The first time we believed them and spent $199. When we found that they were not connected to Microsoft we filed a complaint with them and they refunded the charge.I changed a number of passwords etc., after that. Calls after that were ignored.

You're an IDIOT!  Why do people like to speak on subjects they know nothing about? Either stupid or lazy I guess.The FTC is not supplying free calling lists to commercial telemarketers. FYI: Companies are required by law to pay a stiff fee in order to access the DNC list, there is no choice in the matter. Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

These people call me non stop, they are mostly foreign using American names, seriously?/ I get calls from different numbers, and they are not traceable because they are using internet phone services not land lines, they can change their phone numbers anytime, they are total scam artists, they buy your information from internet sources, and make threats to try and scare you, especially if you have applied for any types of loans online, but legally you are entitled to receive paper confirmation of any collection action against you, there is no debtors prison here, you will not go to jail, nor will the police come get you for having outstanding debts, if you really do have outstanding debts than ask for a letter outlining the debt, the amount, and a payment location (not money gram or western union either) . Collection agencies will never threaten harm, jail or police action, it is illegal. The only thing collection agencies can do is garnish wages if it gets that far, and they have to have a court order to do that. Once these people get your money, they take on a new number and keep going, you wont find them, if you google these numbers there is never a business or address associated with them, just a area code location which they could be in the middle of the Pacific ocean and still obtain a phone number with any area code!

After many attempts of explaining that our employees can not accept personal phone calls, Mark still was very pushy. I asked where he was located and he told me Brooklyn, New York, but when asking for a physical address he could not provide me one. So if my employee really owes this money, how the hell does he expect to get it? Over the phone? No way! This guy has scam written all over him!!! I hope no one has fallen for his childish games.

It is a scam and they are making millions threatening people... Just call them back like I did every 2 min for about an hour and guess what??? They blocked me from calling... I just told them to speak English and get the crap out of their mouths because I couldnt understand anything he said... I also called my local Sheriff's Dept and was told that this number is on the hotlist for scams to calls on cell phones... Dont worry and dont verify any information and let them know that the Bureau of Investigation and Litigation has no authority here in the United States and that they need to stay in India where the poor get poorer and poverty gets worse... I am sorry, but being 43 yr old working for the court system put me out of sorts as I never have applied or otherwise and for someone to have my information burns me up... If you receive any of these calls just know that they are not legit and if you are worried close your bank account and open up a new one... Takes 15 min... Life is good and should be stress free... Good luck!!!

They just called me. Some man with an Indian Accent had all of my information from a payday loan application I once filled out! Then he demanded that I pay the $545 for some loan I took out or they were coming to my job to arrest me. My spidey senses kicked in and googled the company and the phone number...and this came up. I think its a scam! They wanted me to verify my information too!

Truth about donotcall lawsAlso remember that illegitimate companies and scam artists won't respect these lists. Therefore once your enrollment goes into effect you should be extra careful of unsolicited telemarketing calls unless you know they come from a company with which you have a legitimate, established relationship

Yep they keep calling my business line and I won't answer the call.  If they are wanting to reduce my tax liability or resolve a tax situation for me they are barking up the wrong tree.  I have no tax liability and I have no tax situations that need to be resolved.  I pay my taxes all the way around, all that I owe and on time.  No problems here so they don't need to speak to me for any reason under the sun.

These people called my job consistently for over 2 hours. I have no clue who they are and they are completely ruthless. Be careful with these people. Once they find out they can rattle you, its no stopping them. We even tried to block out their number and that didnt really work, they used other numbers. Its terrifying what they do to people. call your local authorities and  dont answer these calls. Indian accents and very vulgar

Our company received a call from a person calling himself Danny Tyler concerning one of our employees.  He has a heavy Indian accent.  He is supposedly investigating a cyber crime alledgedly committed by the employee.  On the last of about 7 or 8 calls, I asked him not to call our number again.  He told me that I couldn't stop him from calling.  Maybe I cannot, but I am very good at repeating myself in the exact same tone and in the exact same words.

This person has called my phone 15 times in one day and even called my work 52 times and would call and hang up. I called the company that he said he was representing and asked them if I had a loan with them they didn't have any clue who I was. I told them that they are using their company to get money out of me and threatening me really bad. They lady in the fraud company sent me a form to fill out and also gave me numbers to the federal trade commission to file a complaint she also told me to file a complaint to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) also the FBI — Internet Fraud. I have done all she told me to do. Now lets see if the calls STOP..So as I'm writing this he calls... "He tells me I need to send him the money ASAP. I told him No!!! Then he said "Good luck finding a new job with your criminal record and be embarrassed at your place of employment when you get your papers and your are arrested hope your God is with you and you never find a job....

Everything that was said in the previous posts are all true.  A guy that can hardly speak English from this number also called me under a different but still American name Andy Smith. He is very rude and called me one time @ 11:24 P.M. claiming that he is a Sheriff.  I asked him to spell Sheriff and it took him a good 2 minutes, obviously used google, before spelling the word.  He is not very smart as you can tell on his posts using the name Andy Fernandis and James Smith compared to the name he gave me Andy Smith.  He must have ran out of names to use that he needed to use same names over and over again hahaha!

Yep, Mark Williams called demanding to talk to my wife, I told him she was not home but I'm here husband that he can talk to me about the matter. He told me it was about a loan my wife got in 2012. The funny part is my wife never received any loans let alone apply for any. I asked to speak to his supervisor, you can hear the phone being passed to this other person. Who then told me the same info that mark williams said. I asked if mark was any part of the Law and he said Mark was a sherrif and calling for his clients, I went off on him that Mark had not ever claimed to be a law officer not even once. I don't care what law enforcment agency you from you must always represent as soon as you speak to any one weather on the phone or in person.

These people call me non stop, they are mostly foreign using American names, seriously?/ I get calls from different numbers, and they are not traceable because they are using internet phone services not land lines, they can change their phone numbers anytime, they are total scam artists, they buy your information from internet sources, and make threats to try and scare you, especially if you have applied for any types of loans online, but legally you are entitled to receive paper confirmation of any collection action against you, there is no debtors prison here, you will not go to jail, nor will the police come get you for having outstanding debts, if you really do have outstanding debts than ask for a letter outlining the debt, the amount, and a payment location (not money gram or western union either) . Collection agencies will never threaten harm, jail or police action, it is illegal. The only thing collection agencies can do is garnish wages if it gets that far, and they have to have a court order to do that. Once these people get your money, they take on a new number and keep going, you wont find them, if you google these numbers there is never a business or address associated with them, just a area code location which they could be in the middle of the Pacific ocean and still obtain a phone number with any area code! NEVER give bank account information over the phone.  Dont fall prey to these jacks!

"James Smith" above is most likely the "Mark William" people have been dealing with. Obviously whoever made that last post does not know proper English, just like the guy who claims his name is Mark William. I had a run in with this guy twice today calling to speak to an employee at our office insisting he would keep calling until he received payment from the "employee." After many attempts of explaining that our employees can not accept personal phone calls, Mark still was very pushy. I asked where he was located and he told me Brooklyn, New York, but when asking for a physical address he could not provide me one. So if my employee really owes this money, how the hell does he expect to get it? Over the phone? No way! This guy has scam written all over him!!! I hope no one has fallen for his childish games. Mark, what American name did you draw out of the hat today? I wish people like you had better morals than fraud and scams!
