He called me Feb 13 on my landline and told me I was witness to accident March last year. wanted me to come down to sheriff office in San Diego in Kearny mesa area. Suspect going to trial; they needed me there on that day to tell what I saw(I didn't witness any accident) I needed to post a bond of $1500.00, I could be arrested, I was to meet in front of sheriff office...not go right into office. I told him I was going to report this as a scam and hung up...He never called back.

Constant calls that are misleading and eventually leads to asking for donation.

They sounded like a "real" political pac, but are not. They lure conservatives to respond to their inquiries with the objective of securing "donations." No matter how many times I block their calls or hang up on them, they use additional phone numbers and keep calling. Their calls are now harassments--if they've been blocked by my phone and they persist, it is harassment.

Scam call fishing for ID data

I received a call first from the number 1 516 231 0987. There was an automated message offering to me to talk to a consultant about student debt relief programs. Since I do have a student loan and since I did not know that all numbers from the US that appear with a 1 in front of the number are scams - something I learned later on the Internet, I pressed 1, as prompted, in order to talk to a "representative." Then the automated message aid that "all representatives are on the phone with other customers." I was prompted to leave my name in order to receive a callback. Stupidly, I did leave my name and I even spelled it for them. Half an hour later I received a call from a different number 1 310 929 2649. At that point, I became suspicious and asked for the name of the institution. The person, who called himself Alex, this is a private organization called Student Debt Relief Group in CA. realizing that this is not the federal agency I have my loan with, I said that I cannot talk at the moment and I will call back later. Alex gave me even his extension - 209, He said he will be taking care of "my case." I checked the numbers online and figured that they are suspicious. I also saw the warning about the 1 in front of a US number. This is why I am reporting the case to you.
