I received a phone call from someone who barely spoke English claiming that I owed money to an internet loan company. The guy said his name was "Jack Justice." I was suspecious from the start. I called my local Sheriff's department and talked with an investigator. He said to make a report for harrassing phone calls. I called and had a deputy come to my office. By this time "Jack" had called several times. He then began using profanity and screaming. The deputy got on the phone with him and told him to quit calling. After the deputy left, he continued to call over and over. We just hung up. He started using more and more profanity. I did talk to him once and told him to send me paperwork for the money I owed. He said he would after I paid the $225. I told him I would not pay it. He said that they would file charges for me today. I told him to go ahead.
This is a scam! Thanks to him I have had to change my social security number, my driver's license, and my bank account. This horrible!!!
I searched the number and was able to narrow it to a land line in White Plains, NY. I called the police department there. They were very familiar and told me if he continued to have my local police forward information to them.

    I rec'd a call today from this same company. I didn't take it cause I was at work but in the message they left they stated they were Officer Shana (last name was not understandable) with the Federal Crime Investigation Dept and that this was an urgent matter. They REPEATED MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER to me and said I needed to contact them immediately regarding a criminal matter. The caller was very heavy accented and the message was interrupted a couple times by a " staticy beep" sort of noise.

    I recieved the exact same phone call on two ocasions from the Federal Crime Investigation Dept . All of the information was the same as the complaint filed on April 2nd right down to the hard to understand accent and the name Officer Shawn ( could'nt understand the rest ), These people need to understand that we won't take this and are willing to prosecute if they continue messing with our lives and impersonating police officials. This is uder harrassment and should not be allowed to continue.

    The same thing happened to me yesterday and today. Officer Kevin Smith, (a man with heavy Indian accent) of the Federal Crime Investigation Department left a message with my secretary telling her he needed to speak with me immediately regarding a "serious legal issue"... It scared me (I have teenage sons and was concerned that something had happened!), and I returned the call as soon as I got her message. "Officer Smith" proceeded to bully me with threats of US Marshalls coming to arrest me for "electronic check fraud" which was a federal crime. He told me I had an outstanding debt of $400 for a loan taken through the internet which I did not pay in accordance with the contract. He knew my bank account and personal information. I do have an "internet loan" - but knew it was current and to my knowledge there were no problems. When I pressed for more information and explainging that I was not delinquent or in default - I was transfered to a supervisor - "Mr. Dan Blackmore" who told I would have to provide them with all of the payment information so they could verify it with the company. I promised to call back with the information when I got home - which I did. I was pressed for more information regarding a similar loan I had taken and paid back a couple years ago... and told I needed to provide all the information regarding that loan by 8:00 this morning. I called and provided the information -- but after providing the information, I was told that the parent company "CashNet" was preparing to go out of business -and needed its customers to payoff all outstanding debts asap. In exchange for early payment, Mr. Blackmore was authorized to negotiate a settlement amount. He told me he needed to discuss it with the company and his legal department. I was starting to get suspicious and decided to check out the company on the internet -- only to find that there are numerous complaints against "CashNet" with nearly everyone having a similar experience. 10 minutes later Mr. Blackmore called back to tell me he was authorized to accept a debit payment from me in an amount $100 less than what I owed -- however, since my loan payments weree already set up for direct debit from my checking account, for the next month, these debits would continue - but once I paid his company - I would get reimbursed. When I said I had spoken to my attorney and he advised me to ask for this agreement in writing - and also something in writing verifying all these charges - he transferred me to his legal department - "Mr Frank Martin" then proceeded to yell at me, bully me and tell me I was going to jail TOMORROW if I didn't pay them today. I continued to play along, say I was happy to pay- but my lawyer was insisting that I get everything in writing. Eventually he hung up on me. I am very nervous that they will somehow take money from my bank account, or mess with my social security number -- or something!! I called the NYS Attorney Generals Office and reported this to the Internet Division, the Fraud Division and the Banking Division. All of them already had similar complaints. I also spoke with the NYS Consumers Affairs Department - they too had complaints. I will be visiting my bank tomorrow and filing more complaints everywhere I can!!! BEWARE!!

    Same story as everybody else, I received a call from a woman claiming to be "Officer Lisa Hunter" calling from "Federal Crime Investigation Department". This Lisa Hunter spoke with a heavy accent and threatened that I would face "legal consequences" because I had a delinquent loan. I politely told her I do not have a single outstanding loan and even my credit card balance is ZERO. She was very aggressive and said she has all my personal information and they will be filing charges if I don't submit a $300 payment to some company. I asked her where she was calling from, she repeated again "Federal Crime Investigation Department". I told her no such department exists, then I laughed and I laughed. I asked her, what town are you calling from? She told me her she is Langley, Virginia. I asked her, what is the capital of Virginia? She got very angry and said she is not there to answer questions and did not give an answer. I told her, "look you stupid ignorant ###, I don't just give money to some lowlife ### who calls me on the phone, let me speak to your supervisor. And furthermore, let me speak to an American! If you're in Virginia, certainly there must be an American who works there who can speak English properly" She said she will see me in court and hung up the phone before I could tell her go ### herself, this was 3 days ago, i haven't heard from them since. If they call again, I will speak to my local police department at at least file a complaint. These people must be stopped!

    Please whenever anyone gets a call like this, insist on their address. Explain that you will send an FBI agent to personally give them what they need. They won't give the address and should quit bothering you.

    Just got off the phone with these people.this guy claiming to be an officer said i owed money to the IRS, I could barely understand the guy when we was explaining to me what the deal was. I pretty much knew it was a scam bc the irs mails out statements if you owe anything, but I was trying to get as much info as I could. Eventually I hung up. Few min later he called back saying there was going to be an officer at my door within half an hour. I reported them to the FTC and my local FBI office. I don't know if they actually have my SS number but they do have my address. Hopefully they stop soon.

So before you leave any kind of legal consequences at your door steps as well as your place of work. Just give me a call back on 18006780507. I do repeat it's 18006780507. Thank you very much and have a great day."

    This phone number goes to a company in Atlanta, some kind of product. http://www.whatisanswer.com/Qx6BqSolveDr1Ee9x/Nerium-Reviews-FAQs:-Buy-Nerium-AD, -What-is-Special-and-How-to-Use-Nerium-AD-800-678-0507.html

    I received a call a couple days ago to which I sent straight to voice mail and I listened to the voicemail and it stated that there was a warrant out for my arrest and I need to call them back. I got the same call this morning so I answered it and there was a foreigner guy saying his name was officer James Wright and he was with Federal Crime Investigation and I have a warrant for my arrest and I need to talk to a Senior Officer name John Mayer he gave me a case number and phone number to call 1-800-678-0507 which was the same number he called me from. So I played along and I called the number and asked for the "senior officer" and he said my first and last name gave me my email address and gave me the last 4digits of my SSI number. I lied and said that that wasn't my social or my email but he continued to tell me that I owe for back taxes because I was audited for the year of 2011, 12 & 2013. I asked him why didn't I receive a letter before I got a call and he asked if I had a lawyer and I said yes and he then stated that I need to contact him and let him know that I will be arrested tomorrow at my home for back taxes so I called my husband told him what was going on even though I knew it was a scam so my husband told me to call them back to see how much they say I owe "supposedly" so I called them back and I started asking questions and he started yelling at me and talking over me so I started yelling back at him and told him I know they are scammers because if they was the IRS they would not be in a call centers and two I would get a letter from the IRS and all the while I'm telling him that he is continuing to yell at me then he hangs up. I also get at least 10 calls a day from "Cash Net USA" as well as other loan companies saying I have been approved for a loan they too are all foreigners in a call center. I ask them how did they get my personal info because I never applied for a loan and some will just hang up when I ask that or some will start yelling at me so I hang up and block their numbers. This is really getting on my nerves and i really wish the government would do something about this problem because I refuse to change my number I have had for years just to stop getting these calls. One last thing I have registered my cell number on the governments do not call list and it's been on there since November 2013 and I still get calls

    Officer Alex Brown of the Federal Crime and Investigation Department left a message on my voice mail stating that I needed to call right away or I would be facing legal consequences with officers showing up at my home and place of employment. I suspected a scam and Googled for "Federal Crime and Investigation Department" - found this site and several others which confirmed my suspicions.

    I called the number, 1-800-789-8045, and spoke with "Officer Alex Brown" (OAB) who had a distinct Indian/Pakistani accent. I asked OAB what the urgent matter was and he said I would have to answer some questions first. I responded that I would need to know what urgent matter was before I could answer. After a bit of back and forth OAB said "[censored] Y** M***** [censored]**" and hung up on me!

    Beware of # 1-844-244-4492

    Same thing as everyone else.
    Never ever give them any info via the phone!!!

    1) IRS, Banks etc. will always contact by a legal notice via SNAIL MAIL first.
    2) Caller ID will always list the government agency.
    3) English should be excellent.

    My mother received a call about an hour ago, at around 3:45pm, from a man with the name of David Miller. First off, if you want to make this believable, at least have a name like Isaac Petropolis or something. He was calling about some arrest warrant for her for e-loans, about a whopping $1000. Mom asked "-And where are you calling from?" "David" answered "Federal Crime Investigation Headquarters in the state of Ohio." Now, this guy had a REALLY strong Indian/Middle Eastern accent, according to my mother. She had asked his identification number, and this stupid douche made this so obvious that it was fake, the identification number was the number he called from (234-525-1564). Oh my Lordy, this guy was a freaking idiot! After several minutes of phony scamming, mom said to him (Now please excuse my French..) "This is a crock of [censored]!" And (here's the kicker..) "David" responded with "If this is a crock of [censored], your gonna be licking it very soon!" And hung up the phone. I'm baffled.. This is unbelievable. Why hasn't this been solved yet? Honestly, my mom got so worked up! She had to call our towns police, and then had to call because they had all of her information, her SSN#, our home address, everything! Scared me to death!

    I also received a call from. "Jack Austin" or Jack Justice, from the Federal Crime Investigation Unit regarding unpaid taxes. I told him I was disabled and was not supposed to pay taxes; He said, in a heavy Indian accent, that there was a one-time payment due on back taxes of $420. I told him it sounds like a scam and told him to go ahead with the arrest warrant he threatened me with, and hung up.

    I have been receiving a call from some Federal Crime Investigation and other 800 numbers and they will not say anything. I have tired of the harassing calls. I just let them all go to voice mail. The ones that I hear on the machine does not have an accent but they are still the same doing a scam. Why do people do that?

    I have been receiving a call from a person who says they are from an government agency the Federal Crime Investigation department who has called me from a 919 number a few weeks ago. They actually said that federal marshal where coming to get me for an loan that I fraudly applied for. They couldn't give me any information when aske but want me to give them my infor which I refused to. When they called yesterday saying I did not pay money that they would arrest me. But when I said your company is on the internet as a fraudulent company he got quiet and the started to studer with hie foreign accent. They even switch numbers when they call it started with a 919 then 646 then a local 484 number if you were a legit company why would you change numbers that quickly. Don't let me find them lying ### cause they will get a rude awakening

    These dirt-bags are getting smarter. I just got an e-mail from a Bob Carner at the "Federal Crime Investigation Department, " claiming that I'm both being sued by Check 'N' Go and have a court summons filed against my for an unpaid loan from them. $786.98 plus 151.02 in interest, but that I'm being sued for $8271.15. My math may not be that great, but even I know that $786.98 plus 151.02 equals $938, not $8271.15.

    Funny thing is, I DID take out a loan from Check 'N' Go... back in 1992. It was paid back in full when the loan company raided my bank account and put me $200 in the hole.

    Good thing I have a suspicious mind; I figured this was a scam of some sort, then looked the name of the "agency" up on Google, and that's how I found this site. I converted the "official" documents into JPEG files and will be forwarding them to federal and state authorities.

    For Extortion Scam Operations, please file reports with the FBI, your state attorney general, the Department Of Justice, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission. They shouldn't be allowed to do this to people.
