Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief
I have received countless calls from this number regarding my inquiry about their program – although I have never contacted them for any information. A voicemail is left of a woman leaving a call back number of an 800 number and it’s done in such a way that it sounds like a real-time message but after receiving the message at least twice, it’s obvious it’s a recording made specifically to sound that way. I’ve called the 800 number and selected the option to be removed from their call list several times to no avail. I have now answered the call and spoke directly to someone, demanding to be removed. Since they are calling from CA and I live in NJ, I have threatened federal harassment charges since they are persistent in ignoring my request and contacting me across state lines.

Type of a scam Phishing
So I just got a call & message (bc if I don’t recognize your number, I *** well will NOT answer your call – you can leave a msg) from 714-752-3628 saying that I have not finished the paperwork for my federal student loan forgiveness application and that I need to call them back at 202-810-4238 to finish or my application will be rejected. I DO NOT HAVE NOR NEED A FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN ***, so stop phishing and find a real job!
It really *** ** *** that these people will lie, cheat and steal from honest people who are innocent and trusting enough to think these are legitimate phone calls!
Please be careful who you talk to on the phone and add these numbers to your spam list. I will be listing this phishing expedition on the ScamPulse.com momentarily.
