  1. Report received, January 21, 2011:

    I receive 2 voice mails on my cell and one at my parents house from a Jason Kenedy saying he was from a law office and that I needed to return his phone call and if I didn't call him right back that good luck on what was going to happen to me. It made me feel like I had unresolved financial issue that I didn't know about. He made it sound very serious. Like something would happen to me if I didn't call him back! He was very rude and knew my home adress and said they knew my social security number. That scared me! I googled the numbers they called from and found out it was a scam! They said they were from a law office and an ivestigater. The phone numbers are the following: (610)717-0267 and, (646)481-0293! Please find these people so no one else has to go threw the stress I went threw thinking I was going to jail or getting all my money taken away! Thankyou!
