Victim Location 30084

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a phone call from an unknown number on Monday 5/8/17. I answered with my name and the caller stated that a legal document delivery service had twice tried to deliver papers to me and that I needed to call phone number 855-562-9875 with a reference number to set up delivery. I hung up, they immediately called back and left a voicemail.

On Friday 5/12 I received two calls from unknown number that I ignored. A few minutes later, I received a text from my boss that a service company called my workplace and told them that if I did not call back ASAP that they would deliver to the workplace next week. I then called the number, spoke to a "Bryan Conley" from "Meridian Financial," who took the case number and transferred me to a "Jim Sanders," who wanted to know if I had received anything yet. I stated no and asked what the papers were about. He then stated that due to federal law he could not tell me without verifying my identity and asked me to confirm my birthday and last four of social security number, both of which were inaccurate. I stated the info was wrong and that my next call would be to my lawyer. He the apologized, said it must have been a mixup, he was sorry that my time and his time were wasted, someone would lose their job, I needed to do what I thought I needed to do, and hung up before I could respond.
