Cons & Scams
They have been calling me non-stop and when I answered I got no respond but a dial tone. Then they have the nerve to call my house like really. I have no idea what this call is about so I would really like them to stop calling both my cell and my home.
Tried to tell me that I was having window issues and my computer had sent a large amount of error messages that were trying up their system and I needed to fix it with his help ASAP. My husband is an IT Professional. I had fun informing him that I was on to him and it wasn’ t going to work!!! LOL
THIS IS A SCAM NUMBER< DO NOT ANSWER !!! She told me that my computer was sending bad signals . I asked to who and she said to your main server. Very persistent, had to hang up on her. Again do not waste your time answering this call
Received a partial answering machine recording saying ” the lawsuit which has been filed on your name. So before we go with legal matter and send this case to the local county courthouse kindly call us back on our number which is 646-760-5419 I repeat it 646-760-5419 thank you and good bye.”
This idiot is calling us back again. And I reported them to FTC and they stopped calling us for a month or two. And here they are back again. These people have nothing to do in life but to try to scam honest earners citizens of these country.
Just called me while i was sitting in front of my computer working. He didn’t speak English very well, and claimed something was wrong with my Windows computer. I assured him that nothing was wrong with it, and told him politely that I was going to hang up on him.
A lady called me today and she stated I was going to be sued for a loan I know I paid had me so caught up on my day off and woke me up saying I owed 500 and couldn’t tell me what the original loan amount was. So im not paying these scam artist

The subject was featured on the following websites, which are no longer active; however, researching their archives may produce further information regarding the subject:
The subject is a confidence man who has been scamming bail and recovery agents out of their money and his scams have been evolving to become more sophisticated. He claims to be a bail recovery agent; however, this is a lie because he is not a bail recovery agent. As a matter of fact, he has developed a rather lengthy criminal record.
In one of his scams, he offers bail recovery training to prospective recovery agents. The victims pay him the fees for the training in advance, but he fails to provide the promised bail recovery training and he keeps their money.
In another one of his scams, the subject reviews bail bond and recovery agency websites that list wanted, wayward bail bond clients. This is how he discovers exactly who to approach in order to attempt this scam. The subject calls the intended victims and he claims to be a bail agent for ABC Bail Bonding in Ohio.
The subject then states that a skip that the bail bond or recovery agency is searching for is currently in Ohio, trying to co-sign in order to have a bail bond posted for a relative (or another person, in general). The subject also states that he will apprehend the accused and return the accused to the bail or recovery agency for a fee, paid up-front (he has been know to utilize MoneyGram, prepaid “Green Dot” Visa Credit/Debit cards and Netspend Financial in order to conduct these financial transactions). The subject obtains money from the victims and fails to produce the accused.
I suggest that anybody who receives a similar phone call should always:
Demand that the caller produce proof of the facts prior to making financial transactions or any other arrangements.
Ensure that the appropriate apprehension documents have been properly executed.
Demand proof of custody from the caller. After the accused has been apprehended, require the caller to send to you via text message a photograph or video footage of the accused holding up the front page of the current, daily, local newspaper with the caller included in the same photograph.
Do not utilize a challenge question and password whenever transferring funds electronically via organizations such as MoneyGram or Western Union, because a recipient may not be required to provide proof of identification whenever attempting to retrieve the funds.
