This is a scam artist that gets to know you and then wants you to send money to his young daughter for her birthday. The only problem is the daughter lives in another state. I think these are two people who are accomplices in a fraud scam.

I found this number is a verification call from GOOGLE VOICE. When a person adds a forwarding number to their Google Voice account, (a number which will also ring when anybody calls their GV number), Google makes sure the person requesting the addition actually owns or has control over the forwarding number by showing a 2 digit validation code on the GV page and dialing the number asking whomever answers to enter the code shown. Sometimes people enter the wrong forwarding number by mistake and Google will call the wrongly entered number anyway, seeking the validation code. If you have no Google accounts and get an unsolicited call from this number, just hang up and you will probably never get another.

This is a Google verification number. I recently setup a gmail account google account and they are phoning me to verify my information. Google's website states that they don't sell this information so if you are getting weird calls from this number then you should probablu contact them to let them know.

Odd fellow off Facebook who claims to be a petroleum engineering contractor in Scotland and tries to become your friend and then gives you big sob stories about his life and wants you to send his daughter some money to help her out because he can't do it himself in the current moment. This is all lies. They will try to give you addresses and western union accounts. Must be a foreign scammer faking all this.

Frauds off Facebook who will try to trick you into sending them money with fake family trouble related stories. This is a common scam on the internet now. Sometimes they fake shipping scams on craigslist with lies about needing your help and seending you fake checks to cover bills you ned to pay with your real money. Or saying you can be sent jewelry if you pay for the shipping. This time it's a fake family payment scam promising to pay you extra if you do it for them since they can' t right now due to some serious problem

Scammer in another country will fake some family related problem that requires sending money to a relative that they can't send money to in the current moment due to being in a odd job like an oil rig. They will offer to send you extra money if you make the payment for them. They will send you a fake Paypal payment or fake check in the mail. They will expect to believe this fake check or forged Paypal email as evidence and then trick you into using your real money to send money to a scammer waiting to take it. Then they never talk to you again.

Bottom line...do not answer a call from this #!!
It's a scam via craiglist ad you posted. I was first contacted via text by another # that was not even from my area. They wanted to pay without inspecting furniture, by money order and additional $50 to hold. When I said no and cash only, they came back via text to say they will pay cash and to pickup a call from them now and dial 03 to speak with them. That right there told me it was a scam. When was the last time you had to dial 2 digit # when answering a personal call...Never maybe. DO NOT ANSWER

202-455-8888 called me twice already all in the same month but days later. I never picked up because the two times they called, it was in the middle of the night. After their phone call, a google Verification code text message shortly follows. The first time they called me I only got ONE verification code text. The second time I got like ELEVEN from 2 different Google verification text things, one being the one I got from before. I honestly could care less about my email because I'm so young and all I use emails for are game sign ups, but still who the hell is this person and I want them to leave me alone. I blocked their number.

I have been communicating with someone on FB who told me his phone needed to be verified but he was out of the country and could I do it. He gave me a code and almost immediately I got a call from this number. How could I verify his number from my phone??? Needless to say I did't answer or put in the code. He had already asked for money for his daughter (didn't send any) and then wanted to put money in my account. This sounds like scams to me!

They said they were going to call me, and I was supposed to answer and push 33 to speak with HD for the details. Once I read the text, I knew it sounded fishy so I never answered their calls. They've called 4 times now, back to back. Definitely seems like a scam. Don't answer! !

I got a call from this number but ignored it thinking it was a wrong number. The. I got a voice mail saying "Only you will hear this code" and then it says some code and hangs up. I'm pretty sure it was a Google verification and somebody typed in my number by mistake. Seems like a mistake and appears harmless. Kinda sounds like a different version of Siri though.

I received a call about 2hrs ago. She was asking me if i needed a personal security system a panic button in case I was in of help. She sounded concerned for my safety. I thought she may of been a counselor. I let her know everything was fine. But if your making calls for date's and a woman answers well-known. I've seen the name in my spam box and a few more telling me via email I'm around the corner if you want to hookup. So maybe online sex talk.

I applied for a job on Craigslist. I got a text from 1 (619) 352-0656. They were saying they were from a company I had applied for and asked if they could call to go over my resume. I said yes and then was told to be connected to a conference call to enter "65" and I would be connected to the hiring manager. Well, I did... And it said my account was activated and to set up a voicemail. I then realized something wasn't right. Told whoever was texting me to quit texting me and immediately researched this number! It is a SCAM and if you enter the number they tell you to then you need to go to your gmail, click the box that has 9 little boxes and click on "voice" you then need to set up your OWN google voice account so you can get your number off of this scam account. If you don't all your calls and messages are then forwarded to this person and they can use YOUR number!! Do not answer the number if it ever calls you without you knowing!

A girl I was texting in another state asked for me to put in a 2 digit code she provided to me. I ignored the call and googled the number. Apparently when someone is attempting to change your google account password associated with your cell phone number, Google actually calls the phone number and asks for you to verify that it's you trying to change the password. Obviously, if you're not trying to change your password, and someone else is telling you to put in the digits they provided for you, then they are trying to change your password and access your information. They want access to your email, calendar, search history, YouTube history, any information they can get in order to rip you off, or sell your information. Sometimes people forget that Google asks for your cell phone number while setting up your account, it can be a double edged sword.
