I received a strange voicemail on my cell phone. This is a number that I have acquired fairly recently, and that I have never given to any creditor.
The message was for first name, somewhat similar to mine, last name, spelled out, not at all similar. Since I'm not sure who they are looking for, I will call them Whoever.
The caller was a woman supposedly calling from a legal office, claiming that they have been trying to reach Whoever at their residence but can't, to serve legal papers. She said if they can't serve Whoever at home they will serve Whoever at their place of employment.
The woman gave her name (which I do not want to reveal here, for personal security purposes). The legal office was not named.
She gave a case number, just a six digit number, and said to call 888-243-0973 if Whoever had any questions.
She closed the message saying "consider yourself served."
Oh really, by phone?
I googled the number given, and found a recent comment from someone on mrnumber giving a very similar script. So I am guessing it's a scam.
I at first thought it might be a shady CA calling the former owner of my cell phone number.
I won't call the number back.
But it is rather creepy to get a message like this, when I do have debt issues, with the first name similar to mine. I had to listen to the message several times to understand what the caller was saying, as she talked fast, with sort of a snotty attitude.
Anyone else get a message like this?
