What should I do, strange call? (piog)

So I just checked my messages on my phone and have a message from a man named James Samual. He says that the message that I (he then says my full name) am about to recieve is extremely time sensitive and that if I or my lawyer do not call him in his division at 661-210-4685, Friday morning he is going to send two of his legal officers to my residence and they are going to escort me and my two references to the court house where I will face a big legal mess. But if I do not want to have to deal with the legal issue I must call him or have my lawyer call him. I don't even know who this person is and he doesn't really state who he is calling for or anything but I did try to call the number he gave but when I call it sounds like someone picks up but then I get a long beeping sound like a fax machine.

I read an article on CNN about creditors claiming they will have you arrested if you don't pay a debt. They are in trouble for this. I'll see if I can find it! Do you owe a creditor?

If you Google the number it lets you know that it is a scam that a lot of people are complaining about. A lot of scam calls coming from 661 area code.

Just ignore it, or report it to your local authorities.

I always google phone numbers. It's either a fraud or an overly aggressive creditor. I'd report them.

Sounds pretty creepy to me. Must be a scam or something. If it really were a big 'legal mess', I'm sure you would have received some sort of summons indicating your court date.

a wedding website

I'm a breast/bottle feeding, co-sleeping the first year, kiss on the lips & tell her I love her every day kind of mom. I can let her CIO, but when she calls 'mommy' I'm on my feet and there in a heartbeat. I want my daughter to have many different experiences & to love everyone regardless of their's. I'm anti-abortion, for the right to bear arms, and completely against telling someone who they can and can't love.
