Courtesy Call

I’ve gotten this phone message twice:

This message is being left as a courtesy. We are in the process of doing an asset and liability search and your number has come up in our records. Press ‘1’ now to speak to our pre-legal department or call today at 855-396-2263. Once again, call 855-396-2263. Failure to respond will be documented as being non-cooperative.

According to 800Notes, someone answers that number with, “Thomas King & Associates” and tries to obtain your social security number.

I can live with being non-cooperative.

      Thanks for the info. Sounds like she realized you weren’t a sucker, and didn’t have time to argue. Did she ask for personal info?

    We had a recent called from an “internet security” company offering to fix a defect in our computer. They had been “authorized” by Intel to fix a bug in the system. All we needed to do was allow them access to our computer. Can you spell SCAM?

    A automated caller leaves daily message on my cell about an “assets and liability search”. Said my number had “come up” and if I didn’t call back at 855-396-2263 that I would be considered uncooperative. I did call back and a man answered with only “hello”, it didn’t sound like a business so I hung up. I then researched this number online. Some people post that after a family death these phone calls start. The calls to me have not yet stopped either. My Dad just recently died in hospital. This person and his scam is rotten horrible!
