He called saying I was commuting serious crimes and he was an FBI agent but when I called back he was rude and wouldn't tell me anything I hung up and he later called and left a message saying to call his office instead which he never gave the number for.
I'm getting the same as everyone else, so I'm sure most of us are wondering, does he actually try to follow up on anything? I will come back to this site on march and leave another comment regarding whether or not he does anything more than annoy people with phone calls trying to scam 500 bucks. If this guy called you, please let us know how long ago he called, and if he stops.. we're all pretty sure its a scam, but it would be better to be positive.
Called saying he was an agent and that he was investigating a crime that a male was using my number on a chat site and he was acting like he was a minor and sending pictures of inappropriate place of his body he said he gives me 24 hour to call him back or there going to go to the address on this phone to pick up the male that he also didnt want to tell me the name of the owner of this phone.
I called the REAL FBI building closest to me and spoke w/,a real agent. This agent Leyman is a fraud. THE FBI NEVER WOULD ASK FOR $500 over the phone. You would either have a letter in the mail letting you know what's going on or a knock on ur door. You've been had. Google your local FBI office and report this a*****e!!!!!!!!! They will tell you the same thing they just told me 2 minutes ago.
I agree with Pauly. First, if anyone has a warrant, the local police (not FBI) will come straight to your house without calling first. It makes no sense to call and let you know. Second, after being arrested, a local detective (not FBI) will investigate further to see if you're innocent or guilty. Hence "innocent until proven guilty". He's scamming tons of people for $500 which adds up, so I'd report his name and phone number and turn him in if he tries scamming you too.
This supposed agent called my dads number and accusing of a serious crime and said he could take a $500 probation program and no charges will be made against him. As a criminal justice student I got really upset and called him. When I asked him to give me his when number and the number to his agency he would not do it. That made it very suspicious. I called my local fbi office and when I spoke to an agent they day that fist of all fbi will never call you and second their not going to ask for money, they will charge you for the crime.... It's a scam. Here's an fbi claims website you can report him www.ic3.gov
He called my son's phone. I called his number back and got vm. We called the police. A nice officer came and listened to the vm with us. He checked on the law and says unfortunately, if he did not threaten your life or make other threats, the only thing you can do is block the number from calling you again.
Also stated...If you were committing a crime, they would not call you to give you a headsup. They would just come unexpected and arrest your behind. lol.
Total scam. Just block the number and keep spreading the news so there will be no more $500 paying victims.
Yea got the same fake FBI texts claiming that I was under investigation for a series of crimes. I'm from Florida so I knew the area code. I knew from the fake ID number and the wording that it was a scammer. Also the fact that FBI doesn't text suspects. They just bust down your door. Anyone stupid enough to get suckered into an obvious scam deserves to be scammed.
