Do not be fooled by scams/extortion attempts! If you feel you are being scammed, hang up (or tell them off first if you feel like it; telling them you're going to call the police usually causes them to hang up), use *57 to use Call Tracing on the last received call, then call the police using a non-emergency number.
|One IRS scammer that is particularly persistent is one that is going to show on your caller ID as GILA CORP with a 512 area code (notice list above). Once you get on their list, they will call you every single day (at least they have with me since I got the first call) & blocking one number usually means they call back on another number in the same area code. Your best bet to deal with these assholes is to use Call Tracing (see Scam FYI) on their calls every time they call & block each number until they run out of numbers; some providers will allow blocking of partial numbers (a form of wildcard entry), which may allow you to block all their numbers with one entry, but make sure you don't know anybody with a phone number in that range of numbers before you block it.|
|The scammer from phone number (844)
890-9215 used some very aggressive
pressure tactics threatening lawsuits, prosecution & jail time, even
stating he had my social security number. This was one of the few
cases where the police was called afterwards. Almost a month after
the last verbal assault, he started calling my number again, as
indicated by my Comcast
Missed Call log (which is where
they go directly to when placed on Caller Rejection). Despite the
fact that he's getting a Caller Rejection recording when he attempts to
call, he's still attempting to call almost every day only to get the
same message, either not understanding he's been placed on Caller
Rejection & won't be getting through, understands he's been blocked
& thinks I'm going to remove it (which perhaps I will have to when I
run out of slots, unless I purchase that 1000 number external Caller
Rejection device) or he thinks it's a bug/joke & he will eventually
The calls stopped for about a week, then I started getting calls from (844) 890-9217 with only a one digit difference from the last one. Given the numerical value of the number is only +2 & the Caller ID still reads 800 Service, I expect it's the same scammer. To verify this, I did a number of searches online & there was a number of sites stating it was a scammer, although details were vague as to what the scam was about. Regardless, I added the number to my Caller Rejection list & decided I needed to list the number even if I didn't have the details of what scam he was pulling.
The situation regarding these calls have gotten bad enough that I decided to file a complaint again the most recent number (including details about the previous number) to the FCC, hoping that it will at least halt the calls to others, as this lowlife is already on my Caller Rejection list & the only indication I have that he's still calling are my Comcast Missed Call logs.
Much like the last 2 numbers listed here, (866) 490-5501 also had the caller ID of 800 Service when received on 2/16/2017 at 1:21 PM. It's very possible this could be the same individual & return call logs from (844) 890-9217 would likely verify he was using this number to probe whether the line was active or not.
Again I received another call where the caller ID read 800 Service, this time from phone number (800) 864-7459 on 3/2/2017. I didn't pick up on this call (regardless of being right next to the phone when it rang) as it's my experience that any time the caller ID reads 800 Service, it's going to be this same scammer. Checking my call logs on Comcast, I found that he tried to call me 5 times at 11:40 AM on 2/28/2017 (displayed in take 2 below), which all got blocked by caller rejection; this call was likely another number to try & probe whether my number was actually active or not.
The phone calls from (844) 362-9238 appears to also be from this same individual, following the same sort of callback pattern that (844) 890-921# had. This lowlife keeps changing his phone number trying to get past phone number blocks, but so far hasn't realized it's just going to be the same pattern every time I see 800 Service on the caller ID.
Got another call from phone number (888) 224-1877 on 4/26/2017, happened to be a recording, which started before my answering machine message had finished (I didn't answer the phone specifically because it stated 800 Service, where 99% of the time it's this kind of call). This one provided the callback number of (844) 467-8693, which I'm intending on giving to the police so they can follow up on the situation (it's also been added to the list above), as well as a URL for the information I have found online about both numbers (linked above on each number). First thing I did however was to use call tracing on it (3 times) using #57, next step will be to block them on my Xfinity caller rejection list once I've moved some of the less persistent numbers from that list to my phone (with a 60 number caller rejection list; the reason for keeping persistent numbers on the Xfinity list is it allows me to keep an accurate callback logs, as seen below); later I'll move all numbers that haven't been persistent in their attempts to scam me to my call blocker (1500 number blocklist), which I'm still waiting to be delivered. After I've gotten the new numbers blocked I will contact the police & see if they will contact the number that was given in the message & put this fucker in his place!
I decided to call the police before the block was put in place & posting this update, seems they're saying there's no way to trace the number despite using call tracing (#57)... I said to the officer that I knew it was a scam & didn't give the individual any information or money (something I'm already aware of, but one of these days I'm considering playing along with the scam & giving them the IP address for the FBI website, that should allow them to track down the bastard when he attempts to hack it). I mentioned that I wanted to chew the guy out, but didn't want to get in trouble; the officer stated that he has done the same thing in the past, so seems you won't get in trouble with the police for chewing out or getting verbally aggressive with a scammer, so all gloves are off when it comes to an individual retaliating to a scammer.

Scammer return caller logs
Scammers are very persistent, continuing to call you over & over again regardless of whether they've been placed on caller rejection or not. After the situation with (844) 890-9215, I noticed he was still attempting to call every day despite being put on caller rejection & started logging his callbacks from this point on. On 9/29/2016, I decided it was time to start doing this with other numbers that were attempting to call back also after they were placed on caller rejection or I had told them off previously before hanging up on them. This list can be found below (for what I have records of), click on phone numbers to see a screenshot of the logs from my Comcast Voice logs:
