Received a phone call with a return number of
707-818-2352 but no message was left.
Upon discovering this number on my caller ID, I telephoned it back and received a response from an investigator Green who avoided all my questions regarding who he was, what was the nature of his companies business, and generally what was the purpose of his contacting people. He refused to provide any information other than to imply that his company was involved in some sort of credit investigation and that he needed to know my identity to discuss the call further. I refused. Mr. Green had a recognizable "Bronx" accent and became very "testy" when I persisted in demanding identification and the purpose of his business.
As a retired Federal agent and criminal investigator for the Treasury Department (24 years), I knew that this Mr. Green was a fraud and did not represent NCCI Services (a legitimate, national data business).
I hung up on Green when I realized that this clown was pulling a scam.
