Here is the deal with this number - a TOTAL SCAM and run by not-so-bright people. It started on Facebook with this person:
He writes me and asked if I was aware that my name was on the list of the Bill Gates Foundation (because HE SAW IT) and that I was entitled to free money just like him - he said they sent him $100,000 for just filling out a form (after personal info like mother' maiden name too - so they are going to steal your identity too for sure, no doubt). This is the "agent's" phone number, 708-622-5943, which he told me to contact.
So it gets even more ridiculous than this. The Gates Foundation "agent" at 708-622-5943 tells you his name is "Agent Brown Maxwell" and he lives at 1156 Monterey Rd, PO Box 13, Otis MA (a single family home with no PO Box associated with it - see Google maps). First thing to note is this 708 number is Illinois and not Mass.
So it is going to cost me $1,500 to get this and how do I pay him? I am supposed to get a Walmart gift card and then send a picture of it to him by phone so he can then "arrange for my payment with the Gates Foundation directly."
I mean really......how bad are we getting as Americans to still try to do stuff like this? Check Henrycarol's picture on Facebook.

It belonged to my friend but she lost her number after having her cellphone stolen.
She should disconnect it because no one can answer her phone.

Have been receiving calls from both UNKNOWN CALLER and 512-652-2161 leaving this number as the callback. A man identifying himself as Joe Williams leaves a message in a threatening tone, using a full name repeatedly. Indicates by name the street name of the home, a place of business and that street name. Says that he is on his way to serve papers, tried to serve papers, will be serving papers. Indicates a specific time for this. Says that a manager or work supervisor must be present at the place of employment to witness this and that I must have 2 forms of STATE ID. Tells me he will report me to the "proper authorities" if I'm not there and that this will turn into a "refusal to appear." Leaves the 855-883-8926 as the phone number to call to take care of this with the a case number so they can put a "stop order " in place. So I called. Cause the thing is, not only am I NOT the person that they're calling, I don't KNOW the person that they're calling. Same exact guy answers without identifying himself or his company. Asks what I'm calling about. I give him the case number. He asks if I'm First Name Last Name, I neither confirm or deny. I ask him who he is. He says his name is Steven Leverman. I ask what company it is. S & S services. I tell him he called me and I am returning the call. He says they do not make "outgoing calls" and I was called by someone serving me. I tell him that I was called by a spoofed phone number. He says he's transferring me to "pre-litigation." SAME EXACT GUY picks up and gives his name as David Silverstein. I do the same thing with this guy. I tell him to stop calling my number he repeats that they don't make outgoing calls. I tell him obviously they do, point out the myriad ways in which this is a scam (a process server trying to schedule a time, the demand for 2 state IDs in order to be served, the need for a witness, the threats to report, etc.) not to mention that I'd gotten this far into the phone call process without him once attempting to confirm that I'm actually First Name Last Name. Oh, and that Joe, Steven and David all have the exact same voice. At this point he begins screaming at me, insisting that I AM First Name Last Name (for the record I am totally NOT, pinky swear) and on and on and then he hung up. I immediately call the 855 number back and he answers with "David Silverstein." To which I begin laughing, he shouts obscenities, and he hangs up. So in closing - call and ask for David Silverstein.

Your comments regarding this individual's fitness and suitability will bve greatly appreciated. Please call Melissa Brockman. Investigator, phone 202-766-0115 at your earliest convenience regarding this matter of official government business. I don't know anyone who works for the government.

Avoid and bock this number, this is a mobile phone scam,
otherwise you will be offered a delicious phone and tarrif and when you hand in your bank details
they will order a phone on your name (no the one you have selected), when you receive an expensive phone that you didn't order, the scammers will contact you to send it back for replacement, that's not the last you will see of them
first - if you send them the phone, you will end up with a phone bill and no phone
second, they have all your bank details and sensitive information, cancel your card and contact the phone operator and do not send them the phone at all cost.
i would report it to the police also and register with Cifas Protective Registration to safeguard your account from fraud.

Received call from 03300403639 saying my Sky equipment insurance was no longer the best priced one available to me. If I cared to give them my bank details they would switch the direct debit from Â£14.99 to Â£8.50per month. I asked how she knew SK much about my personal circumstances but received no rep!y. What is the saying??
IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE THEN IT USUALLY IS!!!

This number was mine for 10 years, someone hacked my accounts and stole my phone number as well, changed the name with the provider and won't give back. Sorry guys, if you ever talk to someone, let me know. How sad, lame and uneventful their lives must be

This number was given us by a so called carrier to deliver a dog to us. The owner only wanted shipping fees that this company wanted by Western Union, would not except a credit card. EVERTHING points to a pet scam.

Originally said they were BT. Said they could offer half price monthly telephone charge. Then mentioned they were Zing Telecom. Just seemed to be after my bank account details so they could make the monthly charge.
Voicemail from a Sarah Wilson allegedly from HMRC - quite a threatening message - the issue at hand is extremely time sensitive. Do not disregard this message - if we do not hear from you or your solicitor then get ready to face the legal consequences.
This is clearly a scam, but quite frightening in it's tone and I am sure there are people who will fall for this.
I had a call asking me to call back so I did Said they were HRMC and I had a court case against me for tax fraud. Wanted 3200 pounds. Said they sent me a latter in Dec 2015 and that they couldn't t send me any more information. I checked my govt gateway ac and I had nothing on there so checked the number and seems allot of people are saying this is a scam. I have blocked the number.
