Most of the calls, if not all of them, are coming via VOIP voice over internet phone and they are coming from India yet all the thick accented scammers have very American names.

Coincedently it was the same time I had defaulted but I had read about these crooks before. Needless to say I filed my taxes this year and someone has stolen my identity.
I was looking online for a loan I could get without having to use a physical check since I do online banking that was set up with my college a few years ago. I didn't do that, but then I kept getting calls from various numbers such as , , , , and the list just continues. They finally stopped calling once I had my phone's auto block feature turned on to block all calls unless they were in my address book.
I left that one for a few days then turned it off and I haven't received anymore calls, except for one. This guy claims that I am being sued by someone, but the guy wouldn't tell me what I was being sued for. When I asked what kind of situations his "law firm" handles, he told me he couldn't tell me and that I would need to talk to his partner and they would give me the information.
The day before I actually talked to the guy he left a voicemail stating that I needed to contact him at this number After searching for the number I found that it was a scam that other people had encountered and on one of the websites, it gave me a map of the location of the call.
After talking to the guy for a couple of minutes, I hung up on him and he called me right back and left a voicemail saying that me hanging up was not appreciated and just for that I would be going to jail the following day at 11am.
He said that I would need to have an attorney to represent me and that because I hung up on him that it was not a smart idea since he had my DL number which I don't have a DL , my address, phone number, email address, social security number, and bank account information. Now when I applied for an online loan, I never entered my bank account information, I'm not exactly sure how or whom I would inform about my SSN possibly being stolen from this guy, if he really does have it.
So I waited a few minutes before my husband called the same number, pretended to be my attorney and asked if he was located on street, such and such, in this city and state, the guy claimed he couldn't hear my husband and started blowing into the phone before hanging up.
My husband waited 5 minutes then tried calling back only to not be able to get through because his cell phone number was blocked.
