DOJ just called the place where I work
Phone call | 25 March 2013 | Mene

Posted on 03/25/2013 12:31:41 PM PDT by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

The Department of Justice supposedly just called and a man named "Jerry" who sounded of Indian or Pakistani origin (thick accent) asked if a V.M. (name obscured in case this is real) were here. I was busy and got his number to call him back. The phone number is 814-289-8211. I called back and got another foreign-sounding individual on the phone. He transferred me to "Agent Jerry's" office.

Upon reconnecting with "Agent Jerry", I told him she doesn't work here (never heard of her). I asked him how a foreigner could get that kind of work in the DOJ and he indignantly asked me why I would have a problem with a foreigner working in the Dept. of Justice. I told him I grew up overseas and have traveled the world and other countries don't allow that. We quickly ended the phone call because it was obvious we weren't going to agree.

Can anyone check that number and see if it is indeed DOJ? If so, sounds like the entire staff is now from India or who knows the hell from where. Don't have time to pursue it. Gotta work to pay taxes for crap like that. Probably a scam. Help...

Scam. ALWAYS google the number before returning a call.

I Googled it any DOJ didn’t come up. I would suppose any government office would show up on a Google check. Sounds suspicious.

He could have at least tried harder at being believable. He could have used James and 007.

I teach government at the local college.

Had a student of mine relate that she didn’t turn in her research paper because when she opened her email to send the paper to me, she had an email from the FBI.

This email, she says, stated she was being watched by the FBI and they determined she was not a threat to the US. In order to remove her name from the watch list, she had to click on a link in the email, enter her personal identification and bank information.

She panicked and did exactly what “they” told her to do. . . and promptly had her ID stolen and all her funds in the bank went bye-bye.

She is a nice person, basically, but because she is one of Holder’s people, she told me, she felt targeted by the FBI before and wanted it to all go away. . .

Sheesh.

That sounds like the calls I got from “Microsoft” several times last year. They are adamant that I had malicious software downloaded into my computer and they wanted to gain control over my computer with my permission to “fix” the problem. Very brazen and insistent. I finally made unapologetic racist jokes, which caused a blowup, and the calls stopped.

I used to do business with the CIA. When their faxed POs came in, there was no number from where it came from, just a quote number referenced. Those were the good old days at Micro Warehouse.

I’d call the DOJ and complain about this number misrepresenting itself as a government official.

It appears from a cursory google search to be associated with a call center.

Good assumption. Even if it sounds legit, I ask them to send something in writing to prove it is. That cools the ardor of 95% of them.

My Mom recently got a call from the "cable company" wanting her to follow some phone instructions to fix the wireless router. Being totally computer illiterate, she told him to mail the instructions. Told her to hang up next time. Bill

When I was enlisted and needing top secret clearance my relatives were questioned if they knew me and so forth!
My wife worked at the hospital and was approached by a man who asked her several questions including, if was she married to me.
She answered all the questions and then asked him who he was?
He said “I’m Mike Hammer” and walked away!
