That number has called one to two times daily for that last month. Comes across as UNAVAILABLE. Once left a voice mail but nothing on the other end.

Caller name: Victor/Unknown

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

I received call from this number 1-171-720-8834. The man on the other line had a heavy accent. He already knew my name. His name is Victor ext. 117, who claims to be calling from the United States Government in Washington D.C. He stated that I would receive $7,000 for something. I could not understand most of what he was saying. He asked how I would like to receive this money. I told him money gram because I do not trust anyone with my information. He told me to call 315-352-0921 and to give them this code: RM3012 to the account manager. He asked many personal questions that did not relate to his offer. How old am I? What is my martial status? What am I going to use this money for? What is my employment status? Do I have kids? My phone states that (315) number is located in Baldwinsville, NY. I googled the number and it seems to be a SCAM!

Heavy accent, said that the US treasury has money for me. Was pretending to represent them. I said I don't think the government would call me direct and I think he is a criminal and trying fraud on me. He called me a w***e like 20 times, just kept saying w***e...w***e....w***e. Nice. I said that is not a nice way to talk to me and hung up. Yeah it is fraud.

Yea! I am getting a free government grant. How would you like your money. Just send me a check. but the government will not send a check. O don't they send millions of checks every day? No it has to go by a bank account or Visa MC, AMX, or Discover. Ok great send me a Visa card! No we need your credit card number.
O ok it 1234567fuckU scumpag!

Totally a scam. I have to handle these calls often as my husband is a prime, elderly target. The 171 area is a prepaid calling card service. Each 171 prepaid card has a secret PIN number and can be used for domestic or INTERNATIONAL calls. It is called a VOIP service. He probably once again signed into some phony coupon or other scam site. They are getting more and more sophisticated and difficult to block.
There are bad guys!!

Answered the call because they call continuously. They don't answer right away but when they did they asked for me by first name only. I didn't even give them a chance to say what they want. I told the man that I'm on a do not call list and they should not be calling my number. Number is not even a valid phone number for the U.S.

It shows up as Unknown. I picked it up once and the man was you have won $6000, you dont have to pay taxes for it but you need to pay a transfer fee. Our phone kept cutting out and I would have him repeat himself. He hung up on me. Its a daily call. I dont know how to block it.

First call I answered I was busy and didn't check caller ID. He told me in broken English that he was from the Gov't grant office and I was going to receive $8,500.00. When I asked for what I got no answer. I was busy so I told him "Fine send the check". When he started asking for info like address, I told him if he was from the Gov't and had the number, then he also had the address and hung up. I am now getting at least one call a day. I have caller ID so I check the number to see who is calling, hit talk and then off.

This number called me and left a full 3 minute voicemail (max length of a message I can get) it was lots of background noise. Sounded like a call center where people were speaking something other than English. Whoever called didn't actually talk or leave a message, it was just 3 minutes of other people talking in the distance.

Caller ID is forged there's no such area code as 171. No idea who it was.
