my phone rings at least once, usually twice a day with the same scammers- i know it is the same people because i speak with them often- they are all Indian (from India) and they give me american names- they ask for credit card info-- they know some of my information and just want my birthdate and social security number- i dont give it to them i just talk for a while and then tell them im onto them and their scam- they always hang up on me, and then call back the next day. they are hacking into other peoples phone numbers to make the calls because i have called many of the numbers back and i get random companies and people who have no idea what i am talking about. i have at least 50 numbers saved in my phone that they have called from. Please help!

tried to get me to sign up to a drop shipping company

Received a call that sounded like a boiler room where a sales person tried to get me to sign up for their service at $80 today and $49 per month. Their website was unprofessional, they are rated in the "online business bureau" which has an "F" rating in the Better Business Bureau. Said that they work with over 50,000 name brand companies and you see them and make money. But could not show me any merchandise or any example of these stores they create for you until you pay the money. Then in 2 days they will have your store built.

The call was from Pennsylvania but they claim to be in Arizona. Buyers beware

Got a call saying social security has been suspended. Keep getting that call. 5 times today so far. Won't answer and have blocked them. Decided to call and was told social security has been suspended and won't let me complete call.

I was called by 202-670-9337 and without thinking they asked if this is Priscilla and I said Yes and they hung up. I called back and they said that this was disconnected or no longer in service.
