KARK obtained a voice mail with really vulgar threats.
Some we'll warn are very insensitive.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has confirmed these types of phone-calls as a scam.
It's apparently more than an attempt for just money though. The caller threatens horrible things some may find disturbing.
"This message is intended for a m***** f*****named Steven."
That's the beginning of a threatening voice mail left on Steve's phone.
He's worried for the safety of he and his family.
For that sake, Steve only wanted us to use his first name.
This week, Steve's wife came to him and said a man on the phone claimed they owed money and were likely going to court.
The numbers used were 404-939-8933 & 203-992-9765.
Steve called the numbers back.
"I told him I don't owe anything."
After coming out of retirement in tough economic times, Steve and his wife took out a cash-loan. They paid it back.
The callers however say they defaulted on the loan and must pay-immediately.
"The issue at hand is extremely time sensitive," the caller would say.
The person calling himself Alex, persisted.
"[It's] very harassing," Steve said.
Messages left on the cell phone stated if they didn't hear from Steve sometime soon, the only thing they can do is wish him good luck.
"It's terrible because you just lose your since of security," Steve worried. "You almost sometimes don't want to answer the phone."
And they stopped answering but the messages wouldn't stop. In fact, some were so vulgar he didn't want his wife to hear.
"Kiss my a** you a******."
They went on to be so inappropriate we can't include them here.
"He wanted to do things to my mother. My family," Steve shared the vulgar voice mails.
According to Steve, the caller didn't want to give him any information about who he or the company was.
The Federal Trade Commission says if they don't give you the required information, say "no thanks," and get off the phone.
They also encourage that if you don't want a business to call you again, say so. If they call back once you've asked them not to, they're breaking the law.
Steve will do anything just to get the messages to stop.
He has filed official complaints with the FTC and has plans to meet with the State Attorney's General Office.
