Scam #1 - We Have A Failed Signature Attempt for ________ (insert person who is related to you.)

SCAM #1 - Here's a little backstory.  There is a person in my life who at some point used my address as their last known address.  This individual doesn't always pay their bills and I understand some lawsuits have happened and money is owed.  Not my responsibility and all of this happened years ago but since then, I get a phone call at least once a month stating that papers need to be signed and a sheriff is coming to my house at XYZ date and time.

No problem.  The person doesn't live there. I don't even know where they live and if I did, I would happily give you an updated address and phone number.  I have actually stated this before to the individual on the other end of the phone.  But, I have also left work and been at my house just in case law enforcement do come with a warrant and plan on searching my home for this person.  I really don't want my kids to have to deal with this crap.

Fast forward to the past 2 weeks.  A new phone number, 302-272-9634, has been calling me about the same issue, almost every day.  AND, now they are texting me.  The number to call back though is 480-453-9109.

But that's not the only scam I've gotten lately.

Scam #2 - Calling because I had an injury but amazingly, they have no idea what my name is but want me to verify my info.

SCAM #2 - Whoever is using the phone numbers 507-322-1890, 507-322-1870, STOP calling me.  These are the most annoying ones that I have received in just the last few days.  I know someone is there.  I hear something on the other end of the phone.  Once, you even said a few words to me about an "injury that I had" and want to help file a claim.

Here's the deal.  You always call me when I am in the studio during my radio show so since you aren't going to talk first anymore, I just blare the music that I am playing and let you enjoy some of Rochester's Best Variety, Y-105FM, for a few minutes.  You keep calling me, I'll keep cranking the music.
