646-465-8488 (Manhattan based number) Thick accent,maybe Middle Eastern or Indian, sounded like he was reading from a script. VERY serious. I think he said my name. If he calls back (he hasn't but I liked the message so much I saved it and play it for people via speakerphone) I'd be happy to talk to him --- if he'll go on record: I'm a newspaper reporter, and he called me at my office. Here's a pretty close paraphrase: Mark! The very second you receive this message, I need you or your attorney of record to contact me. This issue is very time sensitive. My name is Eric Jones and my callback number is (here reads number slowly and mechanically, twice). Don't disregard this message. Return the call! If you do not return the call, and I do not hear from your attorney of record, all I can do is wish you good luck as this situation unfolds upon you. Good bye and best of luck.
A woman with a heavy foreign accent called me from that number. Said they had my name as a reference for my brother, in a fraud case. Wanted me to call him, and have him call that number, to avoid legal problems. Sounds like a scam to me.
At first, I get a call from (702)-558-5677, which presents 'Opinion Poll' on my caller ID. I activate call rejection against that area code and prefix. Then, I get a call from (646)-558-5677, which also presents 'Opinion Poll' on my caller ID. This means that it is so crystal clear that these are telemarketing hucksters that just want to keep hounding people. They have nothing better to do than intrude into other people's business! They are disgusting! They will NEVER be speaking to me, and I will make it impossible for them to ever reach me, since I have caller ID. I will also be reporting them. These hucksters, scam telemarketers, and fools should GET LOST!
