Stating they were from the "US Tax Department" and told me I was inline for a $5000 deposit into my account. Non Refundable???

The individual I spoke with was Indian. She identified Herself as "Angela."

What number did they call from? I have been getting a lot of those types of calls but I let them roll to voice mail.

I posted a long reply,however it would not let me edit.

In short the number they gave was 727-569-1538

The person I spoke with was an "Angela." She was Indian. I was told She was a "US Government" official calling from Baltimore,Md.

As I was talking to her I told her I was so excited to receive the funds. As I got "excited" so did she.

The entire conversation I was talking to her in my best Indian accent.

Only number that showed up on the caller ID was 91-000-000-0000

When she realized She was being hosed she screamed,"You Mother F_ _ ker" and hung up.

Just warning people to be on guard!

This is definitly a scam to be your bank information. I looked up both numbers on the "who called us" web site and it seems several people have had the same thing happen to them. Government will issue checks.

A friend of mine got a call similar to this yesterday, actually it was about 9:00 pm her time. Her's was a little less than Roadwarriors amount. The person on the other end this time was a guy and he kept telling her that they would direct deposit the money in her account to save her from having to "process" the check. She told him that she would prefer to get the "check" so she could savor the moment of actually seeing that much money. She said he kept insisting on the direct deposit. She asked him for his ID number because she would have to "talk" to her husband and she would call him right back. He told her they were not allowed to give out that information. She said she knew about last names, but not ID numbers. She went on for a while with this guy (I had told her about what happened here) and she said he finially got to the point that he told her that they if she refused to give the information he needed to make the transaction, that she would forfiet her "refund" and it would go into the "governments account" and she would not be able to claim it again. She asked him if he could hold on for a sec so she could ask her husband and then asked him, what part of the govenment he was with again, and he hung up on her. She said he didn't even call her by name or anything. Like I said, I had told her about roadwarriors experience, but she never thought she would get a call, but she sure did. I told her I would share what happened with everyone.
