Is it a scam?

Recommended Posts

I got a message yesterday on my phone from a Joseph, and he just said he had been contracted to deliver documents to me today between 3 and 5 and if i was not there he would come to my place of employment with security and my supervisor. I would have to have a photo id to sign etc. It also said there was a filing party and gave a number but it didn't say who the filing party was. Pretty sure it's a scare tactic. Also think it's in some violation of the Federal debt act.

I pretty much thought so. I got another message from him this morning just saying that he was going to deliver these certified documents to my residence this afternoon and if I wasn't there he was going to come to my place of employment where I'll need a signature from a supervisor and security on stand by.  And it gives a contact number. Just his name a Joseph Crowley but no other information or identity information. Makes it sound important and I can see where some people fall for this because they make it sound scary.

Maybe you could say, next time he calls, that you will be glad to meet him at the police station.  Or use an air horn on him.

I always tell them to come on over, I'll be waiting. Then they go on this thing about how they really don't want to take me to court and i just need to call such and such number to settle the 'account'. I tell them I'd rather face them in court and then hang up. That usually stops the calls for 3 or 4 months until they sell my info to a different scammer.
