I have been receiving calls from different out of state numbers since January. They will have many different numbers they call from, I usually don't answer but on an off chance I do, I lie saying they have the wrong number and to please quit calling. Then I block that number they call from. It has been one foreign guy for the longest time, one girl once, and this last time today sounded like a different foreign guy. In which he said his name was Alex and then said his name was Jack, when I asked why he just stated two names he said one his nickname. I have had them say something about medical bills, some about loans, some about the government, and IRS. Since I block the other numbers, they find new ways to contact. They really started calling a lot on unknown because I cannot block unknown numbers like I can a number that shows up. Many of times the guys will say their name is like John or Alex something of the sort. Yesterday they called me on unknown over eight times.

This person(s) call me all time of the day at my job, cell and home phone stating that it's urgent that they speak to me. Also, its a robotic voice that states that a judgment has been filed against me. I tried calling back and a lady answered the phone and hung up on me when I ask why are you calling phone like you are crazy! They are calling from all of the numbers I have listed. I receive at least 5 calls back to back on all of my phones. I have tried to block these calls but they are using local calls and other phone numbers. this is so annoying and clogging up my voice mail inbox at home and work!

Call from "Social Security"

Phone call came in while I was in the shower. It had a local area code and because of my work, I felt it was important to call back. When I called back a recording came on that said this number had been disconnected, to reach the Salina Social Security office call the 877 number. I verified the 877 number for the Salina S.S. office and called. I told them what had happened, I was concerned because I am a payee and thought it might have involved that. However, they assured me that they do not make phone calls and all information is done through letters. They did not say, but indicated that this may have been an attempted scam.
