I too having been receiving calls from this number. First, they called my son who lives 800 miles away from me and told him it was an emergency that they reach me because my bank account had been hacked. Thankfully my son contacted me and gave me a heads up. I decided to answer to see what tall tales they would spout. Told me I had a federal warrant for my arrest and they needed my address to serve it. I told them fine send the sheriff after me (I don't owe anyone anything). They tried numerous times to call but I ignored the calls.  It's been several weeks now with no more calls and surprise no warrant has been served. I don't understand how these scammers can get away with using scare tactics on hard working people. I did report this number.
Report by Marasita Long ago Unknown
At first I was answering the calls.The callers claimed I had debt from multiple states from a variety of banks, credit cards & business loans.Each time I answered it was a new story.Once they said a Federal Warrant had been issued for my arrest.The calls were coming from dusk 'til dawn,7 days a week which included holidays. I stopped answering. They began calling my family.I was furious ! My mother & daughter.My 10,11 & 12 year old sons & grandson at all hours including during school.I researched phone #'s 218-293-4079 & 205-453-4063 although there were many others.I am convinced this "company" is a scam.

I have been getting calls frequently over the last month. AT&T issued me a new phone number and that is when I started getting these calls from 218-293-4079. I answered the first few call and got silence, I sent a text with STOP but that didn't work.Sometimes I get 2 calls a day from them I don't answer anymore and they don't leave a voicemail.

Another number I didn't recognize so I didn't answer.  Then saw all the posts here.  I will continue not to answer.  Thanks for the posts! They don't leave VMs, which I think is very suspicious.  If it's important, they should leave a VM.

I get a call from this number at least 2 to 3 times daily. I have done some research on it and it is a company called Pinnacle Financial.  They have threated to take me to court and have told me I would be going to jail if I didn't take them serious.  They have also called from a 205-453-4063 number, a 419-407-6133 number, and many other numbers.  I have contacted our state's AG office regarding this. I suggest you do the same.

Response to scourge like these who see only dollars and are immune to reality is simple. No response. Disable the ring tone for calls you don't want to receive, or block the calls entirely, depending upon your service provider.  Now you can revel in justice when you see "missed call", knowing  they spend their time and money calling fruitlessly. Repose is what they want.  Let them call forever, the more the merrier. Let them reflect on what morons they are every time they have to check the little box in their call record sheet "no answer" dozens of times, still hoping to scavenge their miniscule percentage of scraps for their efforts.  They know they are bottom feeders, do your duty and be sure they get the message from the best source, themselves, as the grief they hope to impart to you becomes their own hell. Like the Chinese water torture, they will become more enraged each time they waste another moment of their pitiful life, having no chance to get what they want- a response.

This is a phone number for Pinnacle financial group, a collection agency. They've called me before, using a "714" area code phone number-at six in the morning-alleging I owed a debt. "Provide documentation proving it." I said. None was ever received. What happens? I get a call from this number- at three in the afternoon on a friday. I should add that Pinnacle had, using the 714 area code phone number, a very bad habit of calling me twice a day (at least!) Every day, including sunday. After receiving a cease and desist order for the 714 phone number for not only repetitive and harassing-not to mention demeaning phone calls from the 714 number-i told agents at least three times I was disabled and unable to work after my bike got wrecked and was threatened with arrest for not paying bills-they try to pull this phone number switcheroo garbage.

How do I get these people to stop calling. I explained that we are loyal customers and that we belive in the "if it ain't broken, why fix it" motto. I added that they will never reach the person in charge of the electric bill, but the calls never stop. *Funny* I did some research on this and found out that ConEd was taken to court for supposely being a monopoly in electricity, they replied: if you want to start your own electricity business start digging and laying out wires. Being an almost impossible task the court ordered that ConEd should rent their wires to other companies. So now these other companies are trying to offer lower energy @ the start, but latter on raise their prices and include the wiring rental fees. Hmm, good luck with that.

Ms. Norman,                   I just wanted to let you know you have nothing to worry about honey. I received the same phone call this morning and last night. Thankfully I am very intelligent  about these scam artist's, so I didn't get upset. Even if you do owe a debt and you get a call from a legit company, you don't have to worry. The first thing you do is, let them know you want all the info they have on you and that you will get back to them at your earliest convenience. Research everything they told you and if in fact it is to be true,which by the way,we all have run into financial difficulties.  Just whatever you do "don't worry be happy"!. good luck

I too tried looking this company and/or person up and nothing relevant or of use came up. When I put the phone number in I found this so i am glad that this may be a scam and hopefully he doesn't call back again, this makes me nervous.

I received the same exact call this morning, I started to get suspicious when the guy sais he was John Smith and had a very heavy Indian accent. There was a lot of background noise and  he spoke very fast. I asked for a website address so i can check for accreditation for LLC Law, he began to say that he is not required to provide accreditation and can only give me a email address told him to stop calling a hung up the phone and started researching this and found out all this info and posts so it makes me feel better knowing i made the right choice.

The Better Business Bureau issued an alert today saying consumers across the country are getting phone calls from bogus debt collectors claiming default on a payday loan. Of course, the consumer needs to pay a large fee to avoid arrest -- as much as $1,000.The caller poses as a lawyer, and may threaten extradition to face trial if the consumer doesn't pay up immediately.What makes these calls alarming -- and perhaps convincing -- is that the perpetrators reference the consumer's personal information, such as the person's Social Security number, driver's license number, previous bank account numbers, home address -- even personal references."The amount of information they have is really troubling," says BBB spokeswoman Alison Southwick. She adds that the amount of data points to a possible security breach.Spread the word to your friends and family: Don't give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller. Scammers can spoof Caller ID to display different numbers, so trust your instincts over technology.The BBB offers these tips:•    Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation which substantiates the debt. •    Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call. •    File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. •    File a complaint with the Better Business Bureau online if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you.

I had this same call, same man and same number 646-626-6103! He called twice. Last Thursday and then again today, about 5:05PM! The other day, I called back, (on Friday) not being able to understand the msg he left on my machine. I got a woman who spoke even worse English and very hard to understand! She KNEW all kinds of stuff about me! Knew my SSN last 4, my email addy, knew where I worked P/T (I'm 76). When I got through talking to her, I was a nervous wreck! Told me I owed $5200. plus and I would have to appear in court 'tomorrow', which was Saturday or face 'criminal' charges for bank fraud  and a bunch of other crap!  I don't know about u, but there are no courts open where I live on Saturday. He ended my msg the same way, with good luck and God bless you! I got scammed back in Feb., so now I'm very suspicious and came on here before returning his call. Sure as hell, when I googled the 646 area code and number, this is the site that number took me too! I feel much better now, knowing the police are not going to break down my door and arrest me as a 'hard case' criminal! Thanks for posting this site...Now I can relax and no...I won't call his sorry butt back!

The same thing happened to me.  Someone with a very thick accent, shouting to my voicemail and if me or my attorney didn't call back he could only wish me good luck.  The number that came up on my caller id was 3200454348 (not even a real number).  I'd received a call earlier from 0000, and the message was basically the same, but a different return number was given.  Sounds like a scam to me.

How do I get these people to stop calling. I explained that we are loyal customers and that we belive in the "if it ain't broken, why fix it" motto. I added that they will never reach the person in charge of the electric bill, but the calls never stop. *Funny* I did some research on this and found out that ConEd was taken to court for supposely being a monopoly in electricity, they replied: if you want to start your own electricity business start digging and laying out wires. Being an almost impossible task the court ordered that ConEd should rent their wires to other companies. So now these other companies are trying to offer lower energy @ the start, but latter on raise their prices and include the wiring rental fees. Hmm, good luck with that.

Some woman called and asked if she could speak to the person responsible for paying the electric bill.She said she was calling from the electric company and that they had sent me a notice in the mail with an email address and that I was supposed to fill out some personal information.According to her I never did and that's why she was calling my house.I told her that i didn't receive any letter and I wasn't giving her any personal info. I asked her the name of her company and she mumbled Something Electric,on my caller ID it came out as Global Touch,then she said that the email address was sent with my bill and because I didn't respond with my info. I had to give it to them .Once again I told her I wasn't going to give it to her and she hung up.First of all I don't remember exactly the name of the company she mentioned but I' sure as hell it wasn't the name of mine.This call came from a 718 number and my electric company is 845.
