When I got home today, from work, I found 4 identical messages on my answering machine. It was a female robo voice, informing me that my Social Security number was used in Texas in a fraudulent manner. Then it gave me the number to call: 973-323-2791. A little research on the internet, and you find out that quite a lot of people have gotten that call. The same number and the same message. They leave the same message 3 or 4 times, to make you think that it is a real emergency. I read that if you call the number, then they ask you to verify what your number is. Beware!

Giraffes are insincere
And the elephants are kindly but they're dumb
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum

My parents used to get calls all the time from the “IRS” saying that they owed back taxes and the police would come and arrest them if they didn’t call the number they gave and arrange immediate payment.

Received call from San Antonio, TX re: SS# being compromised, was used to rent a car, and drugs were found in car, warrant out for my arrest. Called SS department, also called police, he came out to my house & took a report. Police told me if there was a warrant out for my arrest, they would come to my door & beat it down. Lol Then i bought a package to check activity of any illegal use of my SS#
Just ridiculous, why can’t these people get a job and go to work like everyone else. Makes me sick
OK enough of my rant
