I got a call from a guy today that left me a voice mail. He said he was from OSHA and to call him back asap.

Funny thing is the number he left on the message was 888-943-3237. I didn't show any missed calls from that number. Only missed call I had was a local number, well the area code was local anyway. I called that (local #) and I got a recording saying ext. ??? was unavailable. Sounds like a "spoofed" number to me!

I don't think anyone from OSHA would be calling me as I'm just a "one man show". Also, I don't think a govt agency would have a phone number with 888.

Anyone else receive any calls like this?

I got a call from a guy wanting to sell me some type of forms to fill out for OSHA.

Popped the number into Google and it comes up with dozens of complaints, same story, someone selling something. It's not OSHA.

True. I usually hear about them making rounds very shortly after their first stop

You better punch out
You better just fly
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Osha dude is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out who's naughty and nice
Osha dude is coming to town
He sees you when you're working
He knows when you're unsafe
He knows if you've been bad or good
So comply for goodness sake!

They called me and wanted to sell me posters and a safety book. Said I could look over the book for a month and if I didn't like it I could send it back. They called every week wanting to know if I looked at it and told me to try it for another three months.
Huge book arrived, never opened it, sent it back 3 months later.
