I got the same call.... Told them to put the money in the trunk, and drop the car off at the house....I get many scam calls. 2 weeks ago I got a call saying I won $11,000,000 dollars and a new car from Publishing clearing house. I said sorry but I already have $11,000,000 dollars and a new car and then I hung up the phone.
They're using this one over here as well. We either don't pick up, or hang up immediately. Rarely do they leave a voice message.The scam” your being arrested “ is happing in Australia at the moment I’ve had a couple of calls this week and hubs got 2 calls today, We are getting a recorded message where the previous Microsoft or Tax dept scams were someone abusing you as soon as you answered the phone.
The thing is the calls I got came up as an Victorian (Australia ) landline number that have the 03 area code, but highly likely coming from the usual country known to be involved in scams.
Some of these unwelcome callers are persistent, calling week after week. I found a way to get off their call list.They're using this one over here as well. We either don't pick up, or hang up immediately. Rarely do they leave a voice message.
