Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

A man named Michael called my elderly parents and told them that their grandson (my son) had been in a car accident (his fault) and was at the police station. They needed $7000 dollars for for some reason (unclear). My mother asked them some questions and it became clear that they didn’t know much about my son (plus my son does not have a car at college and wouldn’t be driving). I called this number back, asked for Michael and gave him a pie e of my mind (explicit version). Hope they catch this guy.

Type of a scam Other

Two separate companies have phoned saying they were partnered with BBB and BBB recommends I do business with them.

They were trying to sell their services for adding reviews to my Facebook page and Google. Very pushy Maybe it was the same company.

They got my attention because they said BBB recommends them.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

Buyer is from out of state, instantly offered asking price for product offering to mail us a certified bank check that would include the asking "fund" plus the shipping "fund". Asked for my full name and address multiple times even after already giving it to him. We attempted to call the "buyer" with no answer, he then responded by text stating he was at work and when asked for his name all he said was Michael. We felt uncomfortable about the situation so we told "Michael" that we had someone here offering us cash for the item and that we were sorry but, we preferred cash. He replied with, "I’ve already sent your info to my bank to mail out check to you", We told him to cancel it. He insisted that he was a serious buyer offering us asking price, He then said "I’m not here to play games or wast time" "can you show me their pic", meaning he wanted us to take a picture of the people who were offering us cash. We strongly feel "Michael is a scammer and have not continued any more conversation.

Got a voice mail: my name is michael im calling from ins. company im calling from the health ins company regarding a nurses visit that occurred recently and return my call at 888 591 1511

Caller ID showed zero. Unable to trace it. Returned call and immediately he asked for my date of birth, name, address…I said I was reporting for fraud. He went on to say no no he’s from the insurance company that he’s legit blah blah. I hung up at that point. The scary part is he had the name of my mother and my personal phone number that I give out to certain people/businesses.
