    I've had a similar one last few days. Some sort of "agent" wants me to call in and give my SS# because my name has suspicious activity. Otherwise they'll issue a warrant for my arrest.

    Aside from this being completely ridiculous they could at least attempt an American accent instead of sounding like Apu from the QuickyMart

    The funniest part is that itís not an actual person calling, it sounds like theyíre using some cheesy text to speech app that they got for free on the App Store. On top of that itís obviously a phishing scam and theyíre spoofing phone numbers because you canít call them back on that same number it just disconnects. And I was so hoping I could troll the crap out of them.

    Alot of that going around lately. I have gotten many calls like that. Many calls from “social security” claiming if i dont update my information with them then LE will come to my house and arrest me! I played along for awhile and called them on their bullshit. Haven’t heard from since.

    I got one a while back that showed up on my caller id as my local FBI office! My butt puckered so tight I think it turned inside out. Live American talking some kind of shit as I hit the END button. I have no reason to be nervous but nevertheless still cringeworthy.

    They will never call you nor the IRS. Or Social Security. They will send you a letter registered mail on how to contact them. When they call me and ask for info I make up bogus credit card numbers and social security info. It really messes with their head.

    Absolutely. Whatís really unfortunate is that there are American citizens who know less about how our government functions than ignorant foreigners do. Know your rights! Weíve been on a downhill slope ever since they got rid of civics classes in school and replaced them with social studies.

    If it is a number I do not recognize I do not answer it. If you answer, the scammers know it is a good number and will keep calling. But not answering does not always work. I have about 104 numbers blocked on my phone. 16 of them are politicians. For a few months this summer I had political campaigns that kept texting me. I called them many times bitching at them to stop texting me. I also filed complaints against the RNC and NRCC with the BBB and FCC. Politicians are just as bad as scammers at harassing people.

    Sometimes these visual voicemails don't quite work right. It's like the talk-to-text option on your phone. It takes sound and translates it into written word. Accents, fast speak, poor quality...etc.... sometimes it doesn't hear the correct word
