On 4/19/18, at 1:40 PM, I received a brief, unsolicited, call (recording) from this #. The number was not hidden in my cell display! A rapid speaking youngish female voice advised me to press "2" on my phone if I did not want my credit card rate to increase very shortly. No name or identification was given as to what company she represented.
I suspect this is a "phishing scam" attempt to fool someone into unwittingly giving their credit card # away, to someone who will use it to unlawfully gain access their funds.
I got no "hits" when I attempted to run the # on the web, to see if it had been reported as a scam before.

It left a message saying the government has opened an intentional fraud and lawsuit under my name.

This is a persistent caller...I usually ignore it but answered several times to either here nothing or just background noise.
Absolutely a scam. Do not call the follow up number.
This number keeps calling and never leaves a message. Calls every day.
Had a call from this number telling me the cops were coming for me, that there are four pending charges against me and to call them. Had the exact same call from Oyster Bay with exact same message right before it.
