A group from Santiago using the following phone (may be google)numbers 804-293-5369, 786-823-0381 and 809-776-7790. One has been identified as Stefani (last name unknown) and another as Jose Elias Aracena. There is a video of the threats to kill the person does not send money to this Jose Elias Aracena. I unfortunately do not know how to upload the video to this page. In the video they threaten to kill the US resident, family members, and burn the bodies if money is not sent.

What should I do?

This person is in fact in contact with me with the exact same threats. He is threatened my family and already got money from me. Is this for real? I don't want trouble for my family.

I would ignore them - they are just looking to scare money out of people. Just say "no speaky Spanish" and hangup.

How did you come into contact with them in the first place ?

Ignore her / them and block any number that calls you you do not recognize. Shakedown artists probably don't have enough money to gas up their scooter to get to your neighborhood anyway.
I can't believe you sent her money ?
Are you married and trying to buy silence ?

I work in the call center industry here.
If you are getting threats in English..
probably some lazy ass deportee. If you
are getting threats in Spanish.. probably
some lazy ass deportee.

I can list 100 different scams they run on suckers.
From the grandma scam to the romance scams
and everything in between.. Ignore them and
they will go away. Just like the guy on the street
corner yelling "yo!" the minute you make eye contact
with him.. you know what I mean.

Scam the scammer. Have some fun with them. If they call you read this to them in a calm voice. Don't worry about pronunciation.

Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde. Ámen.

As has been said already, don't engage with unsolicited calls, texts or emails. If you are of strong will, don't answer the call when you don't recognize the number. If it is important they will leave a voicemail. Delete texts and emails from senders you do not know without opening them.

If you can't help yourself, as soon as you realize the nature of the call, "Don't speak Spanish" or "Don't call again". Most phones can block calls from specific numbers in the contact list. Unless your phone/computer is well locked down, nothing good comes from opening strange txts/emails. Of course never reply to these - it just verifies the validity of the email address for the scammers who then sell it to other scammers.

It doesn't matter if you just won a million dollars in a lottery you don't have a ticket for or someone says they are coming to slaughter your whole family and Grandma back in Skokie, ignore them all. Common sense folks, crooks won't warn you they are coming to pay you a visit and everything else from unknown parties is either a scam or a sales pitch.

I remember getting a call from the infamous Lifetouch Portraits, offering to come to my home & take a photo of me and my family for framing.
I explained I had no family and lived alone except for my dog.

"Well then Sir wouldn't you like a picture of you with your dog to frame for the wall".

I replied "Well I don't think it would do me any good, I'm blind"

Crickets...and no more calls from Lifetouch

Don't give people, you don't know well, your real phone number. There are plenty of free "burner" calling and texting apps. You can even create a "burner" whatsapp account.

I absolutely love the scamming the scammer websites and videos.

They are boot camp for dealing with these clowns.
