I received 3 recorded messages from this # within 1 hour. It is a recorded message form a county jail in Yakima who asks for your credit card # to continue with your call, because there is no more minutes on the account so they need the credit card #. No names were mentioned at all about who was calling collect only an inmate from the jail, then just went on to give # of your credit card. They even called 2 hrs later.

I got a call from what I thought was my nephew in jail. Said I'd be getting a call from the public defender in about 5 minutes. Public defender Wayne Spencer told me to send him $2,200 via Walmart MoneyGram. For my nephew's bail. Never agree to wire money to someone. Ps, my nephew is fine.

There is a series of phone numbers that have been continuously calling me with an automated machine about offering healthcare. It took me 5 tries to finally speak to a real person who responded back to my questions. I asked her for a supervisor to complain about the harassing phone calls and she stated that my number will be removed from their calling list and this was 2 months ago, I just received another call from them today. Below are all the phone numbers that I have blocked from them.
