This individual texted me asking for event photography services, but the sentences were misspelled, and had multiple "U" in between and after words. Asked to pay with credit card, and wouldn't give a date or time for the photoshoot. I asked around and others have had this happen to them. The scammers use the same number and same name for every new person they try to scam.

Possible phone scam

Phone call on my land line at 8:49am on 2-16-17, a guy named "Jason- ID #2808863 with Medicare" knew my name & said he needed to know the supplement to my Medicare. I asked him why & he said for security reasons. I hung up at this point. I know M/C has all my info needed & they don't just call. All my info was taken care of for 2017 in November '16. The caller ID was "Invalid Phone Number". I tried calling back from my cell number & it stated that "call couldn't be completed as dialed". I suspect this is a scam. Wanted it to be reported.

Just say "YES" scam

The call came into my cell phone 3 times in a row within seconds apart. So I answered on the third because I thought someone might have an emergency. He introduced himself as Joe and asked if I could hear him. I immediately hung up. Just as Mr. DeWine told us to do, to avoid a scam. The reason I am reporting this is to report the number he used to call me on in case something can be done with the number and no one else gets caught in his scheme.

Constant Fraudulent calls

Can someone explain to me how when you received a call that you have won or qualified for a free Medical Monitoring System and even though you have told them to stop calling you? You then redialed the number to tell them to stop calling you and you get a construction company. How does a number you just got a call from that tries to sell you a medical equipment and when you redial that number and the person on the other side is tell you that this is a construction company, Just received call from 301-744-0938 and when I dialed back this number I was told that it is a construction company. If this was a construction company, I would expect them to answer the phone like ABC construction or whatever, John or whatever the name speaking, but the person that answered the phone just said, "hello". When I dialed the number after hours the voice mail did say the construction company's name. Are these callers making Robo calls with numbers that are not their numbers?
