I got two random phone calls while at school by the phone number 847-553-4201. I received both calls around 0932 Pacific Time. A man on the other line stated that local police are on there a way to my location for four illegal charges against me and to call back immediately for more information. The man speaking didn't provide his name, number, or my personal name for these charges.
