Scam Warning - Fake 'Federal Agent' Phone Calls

LABELLE, FL. -- A scam phone call to be alert for is one supposedly coming from a Federal Agency asking you to call back to discuss "your case and take necessary action."

The call warns that if you don't call back they will take legal action.

Here's the complete message as received from a Palamar Park, CA phone number of (650) 996-8194, owned by someone who also has three other numbers. Research shows they also have lived at 16 other previous places recently. Don't call back and just trash this message as no government agency is going to call you and leave such a mysterious message.

"So that we can discuss about your case and take necessary action on this matter in order to connect federal agent, press one and you will be connected to the concerned Department. If we don't hear from you, then we will be forced to take legal action against you press one and you will be connected to the concerned Department."

    I got a call from a number showing it was from Europe, Germany to be exact. They have called me twice this week from different numbers. Exact same message though! This is really dumb I wish they would enforce stricter laws against this riff raff.

  23. I'm living in Ohio and got this EXACT message word for word in a female robocall voice. The phone message's number I received originates from Aberdeen, Ohio along the Ohio/Kentucky line. It;s very alarming when you hear the part about needing to be connected to a federal agent but they're apparently wanting to put you in fear. I did a google search after the call and found this news site with the exact same message word for word.

  25. Received one of these calls today from Michigan. (Says the number is Wayne, MI). The phone number is (734) 674-1287. Tried calling them on my work phone (which shows up as the generic operator number for my work) and there is no service on this number. Stay vigilant. Definitely a scam. I come from a large family of high ranking police, gov officials, and DEA agents. This call is without a doubt a scam. Too bad no one can really look into it more and figure out how to lock these people up. Hopefully soon :)
