1. They didn't identify themselves as any specific entity, just a "Department of Investigations." Scam.
2. There's no listed public or private entity connected with this number. Scam.
3. This same number called my Google Voice numbers repeatedly with two different case numbers, with different names. Scam.
4. They didn't identify themselves, or this call, as attempting to collect a debt of any kind, which is required under the FDCPA, if they are attempting to collect a debt. Also, scam.

Try harder.
