Received a suspicious call on March 31, 2016 from telephone number 206-538-2578 from someone claiming to be from the U.S. Treasury Department. A deep male, garbled voice urged us to call 206-538-2578 several times, stating that if we did not call back, it would be a Federal Criminal Offense and something about we would need to appear before a Magistrate and Grand Jury. We did not answer the call; the call was left as a message on our phone machine.

Reported this call to:
(1) Government imposter scams: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#&panel1-1

(2) Treasury Department: https://www.treasury.gov/about/organizational-structure/ig/Pages/OigOnlineHotlineForm.aspx

This is FRAUD. Please report these calls so they can be stopped! You can report anonymously if you want.
