Caller with foreign accent called 4/30/14 seeking to speak to a Matthew Hoot*** (Unclear); knew my organization's name; but hung up when told I did not know anyone by that name. Second such call I can recall.
I called back and got a busy signal.
Got a call from this number at my work phone. The person asked if I was "L" and I said yes. Then the person hung up really quick. He had an accent...sounded like an Indian accent. I'm concerned now since he may be fishing for some private info or trying to confirm things about me.
Called using my former name and claimed he was from some family planning organization. Kept trying to get me to say whether I was married and what form of family planning I utilized.
Just noticed that in the "your name" section of everyones comments it says IT, director of IT, or IT director on 3 of them. I, as well, got a call from this number, said my first and last name, I said yes, and then they hung up. I am also in the IT field, a GTO, and my husband mentioned that they might have got my number off of Linkdin since that is the only thing we can think of that has my name and number listed. Anyone else on here from IT as well?

Someone claiming to be James Thompson called from 213-285-0943 asking for a person that works here. He was pushy towards me saying he would only speak to that employee. I read his number to him from caller id and told him I was recording our conversation. He said the package would not be delivered and hung up
This person called foreign accent asked was I the owner of the company and he works for FED EX calling from a NYC Hospital I bussed out laughing and asked so why is your # from Los Angeles he sd no seriously I am calling from NYC for some documents please confirm your name and company's address, I stated that I will be contacting the POLICE and BBB and report this # TODAY! He stated that he will NEVER call again!
This person called saying he was fedex and wanted to verify my address ... I told him that is BS and asked what the scam was really about, he simply hung up.
A middle eastern man also called our office stating first he was calling with a package from FEDEX and needed to speak with a Varron Stevens then he stated that he was calling as an emergency from New York City Hospital
a middle eastern fellow calling from this # says that he is looking for the owner of the company and claims to be from fedex. We explain that there is no one here and he rambles on about how important it is to speak of the package. We tell him that he is an A55hole and hang up
Same thing happened to me...I answered, he (a foreign individual) asked me if my name was XXXX, I stated yes and he hung up the phone.
I accidentally picked this up without looking and thinking it was a coworker calling. They asked for me by name, which threw me off, and I replied that I was who they were looking for. Then they asked about a loan with Bank of America and I said I hadn't done any business with them. They let me go at that point.
Not sure how they linked my name to my work phone number, but it's out there on Linkedin so they may have pulled it that way. It's not published anywhere else that I know about.
This number keeps calling me to my work saying they have documents from Bank of America, I have never had this bank and they keep trying to get more information. Its a man with middle eastern accent and they have called everyday but when I ask for more information they either hang up.

I received a call from this number on the main line at my office. The caller, an Indian or Pakistani sounding man, asked for a "Paul Carrington." I told him nobody by that name works here and he hung up.
A couple months ago, I had received multiple calls from an unregistered Skype account 661-748-0240
), also asking for Mr. Carrington. I have no idea who he is and I believe these calls are a phishing attempt.
