LAWYER NAMED ERIC BERGMAN IN ILLINOIS / ALLEGED LAWSUIT

1 United States

AT 1PM ON THURSDAY, DEC 16, 2010, I RECEIVED A MESSAGE ON MY CELL PHONE ALLEGING THAT THERE WAS TIME-SENSITIVE MATERIAL TO BE DISCLOSED, THAT THEY NEEDED TO SPEAK URGENTLY TO ME OR MY ATTORNEYS REGARDING A LAWSUIT THAT WAS ABOUT TO BE FILED. THE CALLER LEFT A TELEPHONE NUMBER TO CALL IN RETURN AND FINISHED THE MESSAGE BY STATING THAT IF THE CALL WAS NOT RETURNED THEY WISHED ME LUCK WITH THE UPCOMING LAWSUIT. I CALLED THE NUMBER--THE CALL TO WAS LOCATED IN ILLINOIS. NOTHING, NO ANSWER, NO RINGING, ETC. THE NEXT MORNING, I CALLED THE NUMBER AGAIN. IT RANG THEN WENT TO SOMETHING (NOT SURE WHAT) THAT INVOLVED A LOT OF HUMMING, SCRATCHING AND OTHER STRANGE SOUNDS. I HUNG UP THE PHONE. WITHIN 30 SECONDS A LOCAL CALL RANG ON MY PHONE. I ANSWERED. AN OBVIOUS MIDDLE EAST OR EAST INDIAN ANSWERED AND STATED THEY WERE ERIC BERGMAN. I RE[LIED BY STATING THEY WERE NOT EVEN AN AMERICAN AND THE VOICE RESPONDED WITH "HOW CAN YOU TELL?" AND WHEN i STATED WHY, THEY APOLOGIZED AND SAID, "VELLY, VELLY SORRY." THEY THEN ASKED MY NAME SEVERAL TIMES AND HOW TO SPELL IT. I TOLD THEM I WOULD GIVE NO INFORMATION OVER THE TELEPHONE AND I WOULD HAPPILY GIVE THEM MY ATTORNEY'S AND WHAT WAS THE LAWSUIT ABOUT??? WHEN I STATED I REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE CALL AND THAT I WAS GOING TO HANG UP, THEY STATED THAT I WOULD BE IN "VELLY, VELLY BIG TROUBLE!!!' I THEN STATED THEY COULD SPEAK TO MY ATTORNEY AND HUNG UP. I THEN REDIALED THE ILLINOIS NUMBER AND IT RANG AND RANG. I CALLED THREE TIMES AND EACH CALL WAS HUNG UP. WHAT SORT OF SCAM IS THIS AND WHAT ARE THEY HOPING TO GET OUT OF IT? (OBVIOUSLY MONEY, BUT HOW?) WHERE WOULD THEY GET THIS INFORMATION?
