Called and said he was a banking superior to Jdt Enrollment Group that was settling a debt for my elderly mother. He said it had to be finalized tonight and had her activate a CitiBank card she received in mail (but did not request) and charged it $2700.00! She is an insomniac and was tired and confused. She ex pressed her confusion to him but he conned her into believing he was helping settle her debt.

Being threatened and cased by robbers

I received a call on my cell phone from a lady who said my warranty expired, then she asked what make and model car I had. I told her she called me, and she had to tell me, and I asked what company was calling me. She began to threaten me, and threatened my mother. She said she would hurt my mother, and that's scary because the cell phone is registered in a family account at her address in Bardstown, Ky.. I have been staying out of town for work most of the time. I have no information on this obvious mob, nor how many people are in it, nor what they know, because the woman refused to give information. When I called the number back, there was a recording that said the number was not working. These individuals are dangerous and need to be caught.

We received 5 phones calls from telephone number 202 241 0104, at different times on Wednesday, October 11, 20167, between 2:00 and 5:15 p.m. We did not answer the phone, the caller left a voice mail message telling us "he" was a representative from our bank (he did not identify which bank), only that there was a issue that needed immediate attention or we would suffer financial difficulties. To reiterate we did not answer the calls, nor did we call the number. The caller had a foreign accent.
