Just received two calls from this number 210-249-0540. ID said it was from Novatel. A guy with a foreign accent said he was calling from "the government of the US," at which point I told him goodbye and hung up. There was also a lot of background noise, that sounded like the guy was in a call center type setting. A few minutes later, another call came in, but we did not answer it.

That Number called me, my mobile rang once then stopped, so i added it to the declined callers list
This number didn't call me but they called my mom and grandma claiming they were my brother and a lawyer. They even had my "brother" talk on the phone. They told my mom had grandma that my brother was in a car accident and severely broke his nose and needed $1,000 for vehicle repairs and that my brothers insurance would pay my grandma back. My brother lives in Utah, when I finally got ahold of him he was waking up, never having set foot in Mexico City. But by the time I got ahold of my mom my grandma had already sent the money Western Union. I tried to tell my mom from the get go that it was all very odd and the story didn't add up. I asked her who this lawyer was and she didn't know. They didn't get a name of the so called law firm he was working for, they didn't get a number for the jail my brother was supposedly at, nothing. Now they are frantically trying to get their money back and I doubt it will be with much success. ALWAYS, ALWAYS check peoples credentials. This is very heartbreaking for my grandma and mom. They did not have the money to give like that and this is causing much more heartache on them than anything else.
This is happening nearly every week once or twice a week PPi it's a pain
My iPhone showed it a a call from Texas USA
