We got a message left on our answering machine that was not very clear, as in a multiple generation recording. The person identified himself as Detective Bill Bradley with the Department of Homeland Security. I called the DHS and they said that they do not have detectives working for them and that I should contact the FTC at www.ftc.gov. He left the callback number 202-870-5272 x101 and said that our phone had been targeted by multiple scammers and they had arrested 26 persons and recovered a bunch of money from them. He said that they had some important information for us and that we should call them back. When I called, the auto attendant said to dial the extension at any time and then to dial 1 for something. Well the extension begins with 1 so that was my first hint that something was wrong. The person that answered said that Det. Bradley was not available at that time. I did a reverse lookup on the number and it seems to be registered to a Dana Marie Brown (alias: Dana M Malvin) - age 59 at Stoneridge Appartments, 324 Anacostia Rd SE, Apt C41, Washington DC 20019-7144 from service provider: Cellco Partnership DBA Verizon Wireless. She has a Hyundai Elantra 2007 registered to her. She seems to be related to: Cathy Diane Brown, Dana Nicole Brown, Jennings Brown, William Oliver Brown and Magdalene Frances Malvin. I would assume that one of these is her husband and her maiden name is Malvin. The person I got when I called back wanted to know if we had lost any money to the scammers. I said that I wasn't sure and would have to ask my wife. He said to find out before I called back. I am assuming that he is going to say that he can get my money back for some processing fee.
