I received a call today on my cell that I believe is a scam, but I'm not sure. So the caller ID showed a number in my area code, a local number. I didn't answer because I work nights so I was asleep. The message left on my voicemail was as follows - "I'm calling in regards to an issue very recently filed within our office concerning your name and your social security number at this point I'm not sure if you received the documentation sent to your address we have on file but in order to resolve the issue. We need to speak with either your self or any type of appropriate representation. Please press one now to connect to an associate or return the call as soon as possible to 855-527-8272. Once again the number is 855-527-8272. Thank you...." I googled the number and it appears to be a collection agency out of new York. I do not have any debt in collections. I don't see anything old on my credit report that someone would be coming after me for. I guess I just am wondering if any of you think this is a scam or is it legit? Thanks for any reply, I appreciate your help. Also, I have received no documentation that they supposedly sent to me.

Scam. In the US, I believe all debt collectors are required to state the name of their company and the specific name of the debtor. There are other specifics, but this is way too general for a real company.

Bware is right-if you had picked up, they would have asked you to "confirm" your address and SSN. Which of course would lead to all your personal details.
