Telephone scam

These people keep calling relentlessly all day from different states. They pose to be some legal authority who has some arrest warrant for us. And they claim we have some serious allegation against us and they ask you to call back. It's very annoying as they have been calling from different numbers and they don't stop.

Early morning phone calls, they call and then hang up

This has been going on for 4 days now. We get a call around 2 am --phone rings 3 times and they hang up. That is repeated 3-4 more times in hour intervals. We received 5 such calls this morning and another one this afternoon. This is very disconcerting to receive these calls in the early morning hours. Would like to know what to do to stop them.

Scammer trying to scan using random people's phone numbers

I was just called by someone who used a random phone number to sell me Life insurance. The reason I know is because I texted the number that called me and received a text back saying, "Who is this? I never called you!" I don't have anything to support this except for the phone number and time it was called. This has happened before as well it's always with random numbers! Sincerely,
Bethany Goethe
