There is Scam going around that is very disturbing! I received 3 calls from different phone numbers over the past few days, all from the Boca Raton Florida area. The message said this was the Civil Investigations Unit and that I was named in a lawsuit, including a restraining order, and had to appear in court. I was to pass this message on to my attorney and call within 24-48 hours, there was an order to show. They gave a file number and all. When I Googled "Civil Investigations Unit Scam" it came up with website after website of people's complaints and that this was a Scam. One person gave his SS# and had his identity stolen, another was told he was being sued by a CC Company but if he wired the funds he could settle out of court. Another was scared enough to make a direct deposit from his bank account and by the next day his bank account was emptied. Two of the numbers they tell you to call are (561) 288-6311 and (727) 202-1062. Don’t call them back but please DO report the fraud! PLEASE REPORT THIS SCAM if you receive the phone-call so that these scam artists can be prosecuted!

  • Thank you so much for this Jane. I received a similar message from these people and almost called them back. Instead, I read your message, and filed a complaint of my own. I hope others will research before calling these scam artists back.
