My wife just got the same call today and we could barely figure out what the woman was saying. You did a great job figuring translating! When I re-listened to the message it was word for word what you wrote. By the way, the word you couldn't figure out was "notification"). Our caller was a woman who said she was Dianna Foster - yeah sure it is - she could barely pronounce it! Number she left was 213-437-6040. Thanks for your post, my wife was very relieved to know it's a scam.

I received the same call. No way this is legit. I'm sure the Department of Legal Affairs would not communicate by phone and use someone that could barely speak english.

I received the same message the last 2 days. I couldn't understand the message, but I think you got it. My caller was from Alex White and the number to call back was 760-897-3175.

Very hard to understand due to the caller's heavy accent and background noise. He's called twice and left the same message both times. Some vague reference to legal action being taken against me and warning that I should call back to avoid a "legal mess." After researching this online, I'm convinced it's a scam.

Got the same call. FREAKD ME OUT!
Had to listen 5 times to figure out what was being said through the heavy Indian accent. His name was James Howard and the phone number for me to call was 909-237-9679. Called the number and got a message, "this number has not been assigned". Then, decided to "google" Dept of Legal Affairs and thankfully found that all you fine folks have received the exact same message. Thanks to everyone for posting!

Strange Call - 12-04-2014

I got the same suspicious voice mail message today Thursday December 4, 2014 from an Adam Walker, who claimed to be from the Department of Legal Affairs. He said his number is 760-897-3175.

I'll do my best to try and quote what he said in the voicemail he left:

"This message is intended for (first name) (last name). (first name), this is Jim something or another with Department of Legal Affairs and I was trying to reach you in regard to a very important issue. This is a verbal (indication maybe? not sure what that word was that he said) for you in regard to the (vomonsent action - again, no idea what he said and that's what it sounded like) that having started on your name. My number is 760-600-7163. I'll repeat that. 760-600-7163. If for any reason you are needed to call back I would suggest you getting your attorney to do it for you as (something something) might turn into a legal mess for you. I hope you will take this right and call me right back. This is Jeff something or another with Department of Legal Affairs. Looking forward to speak with you. Until then, have a blessed day. Good bye."

Now this guy had an Indian accent and there was a decent amount of background noise as well. He also called the house phone rather than my cell phone which is odd because I rarely even use the house phone anymore which leads me to believe that it's a scam even further. Why not just contact me directly? Anyways, I tried my best to type exactly what he said in the message giving his accent.

Very hard to understand message - heard the word "Attorney" in there and also he said "Bless you" at the end of the call. Left this number to call back. Sounded like Indian accent. Of course we did not return the call.

I just received a call from this guy and let it go to the answering machine. He passed himself off as a David Cooper with the same phone number you posted 1-209-565-6371. My first thought was WTF and googled dept of legal affairs. It seems these idiots have been doing this for years.

This guy Adam Walker left a message on my home phone. When I called the number, the phone was answered "Department of Legal Affairs, U.S. Treasury Department" and the guy said his name was Brian L. He sounded just like the Adam Walker who left the message. He asked me what number we were called on and I gave my home number. He said he couldn't talk to me because it was my husband they were after. My husband called the number from work and the call did not go thru. He then called from his cell and the same Brian L. answered. (This never happens with government agencies.) Told my husband that the Treasury Department was after him for tax evasion for 2009 for $4,000 and that they were simply notifying him but that an agent would be here to arrest him within 2 hours. Don't know if he was looking for payment or what. Dirty *&#$@%^! I reverse looked up the number and it is a cell phone. 209-565-6371.

A guy with heavy Indian accent called me today he said he was calling from the US Department of Legal affairs. He said he called to inform me that someone is pursuing a case against me. Sounded like a scam as usual, since these people don't have better things to do but try to get money out of people that work hard. I wish the government would shut down phone numbers like this that have complaints against them!!!

This message is intended for (my first/last name). (My first name) this is James Howard with the Department of legal affairs.

I was trying to reach you in regards to a very important issue. This is a verbal notification for you in regards to the enforcement actions that have been started on your name. My number is 909-237-9679, I repeat that is 909-237-9679.

If for any reason you are busy to call back, I would suggest you to have your attorney to do it for you. As delay in calling us might end up into a legal mess for you. I hope you will take this time (time?) to give me a call right back. This is James Howard with Department of Legal Affairs, looking forward to speaking to you. Until then have a blessed (pleasant?) day. Goodbye!”

Caller indicated that she was from the Department of Legal Affairs and told me that my daughter had a case pending against her and that if she didn't respond immediately her case would go to court within 24 hours. Rachel claimed that multiple notices had been mailed to my daughter. I protested that none were received. When I asked for the case number of the legal action she said she couldn't give it to me. When I asked to speak with her supervisor she responded, "oh, nonononono. Nonononono." I said, "You can and you will let me speak to your supervisor." She hung up. "Rachel" spoke with a heavy Asian accent and at times her syntax was unintelligible. At others it appeared she did not understand even simple English. My daughter spoke with Rachel's colleagu, Rober,t in a subsequent call and he said the "legal action" would not proceed if my daughter agreed to fund a "voucher." My daughter refused and Rachel's colleague said the police would be showing up in an hour to arrest her.

I had the same thing happen from a Sean Williams in LA at 323-786-9839. On the second call I picked up, told them that I knew it was a scam. "A scam?" he said. I said yes, a scam, I'm not even the person he was looking for and to stop calling me. He told me he was going to call the police to have me arrested. So I sit and wait for the police to show up.
