    Over the past three days, I have received a call per day each from one of three different numbers that I am not familiar with and as such I let them go to message. Each one has left a message...pre-recorded...in Chinese???:confused:

    It’s get be some marketing type call , that bought a list of numbers of what was supposed to be oriental people , so they can target a market , and your number was of someone oriental or Maybe a dial by mistake mistake , like a one number difference
    Hope they are not calling on the middle of night

    Three days, three different #s and every time a Chinese message. I saved the last one and might get my BIL to translate it.;)

    Big scam campaign going on and people are falling for it as they leave a real chinese embassy phone number that no one answers. Later when they call again people fall for it and give their credit card numbers.

    Here’s more info about it:

    The other big scam is the prerecorded message that there are 4 outstanding warrants for your arrest. They leave a callback number. I got this scam call this last week actually.

    Jeez! I thought it was just my phone. It's not even my language! It's layers of insanity deep.

    I would call them back and ask them why it is taking so dang long to get me my order of Beef Pepper Steak and General Cho's Chicken and screw with them.

    I would also ask if they know the guy in Africa that keeps e-mailing me.

    Then I would say, "look you guys are trying real hard at a scam the American people are already aware of so you are not gonna get any traction, but for 49.95 plus shipping I will send you a floppy disk of the new scam for buying Levi's at outlet malls and reselling them to the Japanese vintage market for $500 -$1000 each, I will wait while you grab your credit card"

    Kick 'em in the nards' - :)

    Yes I have 4 counts on me as well, the IRS scam ,they wont quit.

    I like to call them back on my work phone and harass them, call them scammers.
    They don't know whos calling if you use a different phone # for call back.
    but don't ever answer them
