Several residents have reported getting phone calls from a subject stating they are with the investigative division of the treasury department. The subject, who is difficult to understand, leaves a call back number of (323) 498-3324, which is a telephone number listed in Los Angeles, California. Another telephone number used by these subjects is (202)-506-8934, listed in Maryland area.
We called back the L.A. number, and the voice-mail message, in a similar voice, stated to leave a message for a subject named Robert Mathews.
We called the Maryland number today and it was a magic jack telephone number that had not been assigned to anyone.
Should you receive a call like this or any other asking for money, personal information, or any type of banking information, please stop and check into the caller and the company. These types of scams are becoming very common and many people do in fact fall victim to them.
