This morning I received a telephone call from someone with a heavy Indian accent asking to speak to Tracy Neal. When I replied "this is she," I was asked if I knew a certain person (this person is a relative of mine, but I didn't offer that information.) I simply replied "yes" and was asked to give the aforementioned person a message. The info i was given stated that the caller was:

Officer Jason Hatch with the "Dept. of Financial Crimes & Investigations" The number to be called back was given to me as 914 205 2436

When I asked what it was in reference to, I was told that the person to whom I needed to relay the message had commited financial fraud & needed to reply asap.

Seeing this as a potential scam, I looked online & found the following link showing several other occasions this has been done:

I proceeded to call my relative to ask them to be wary of such calls. His wife had already received a similar call from the same person but different number (011 052 5945) attempting to retrieve private information.

Please warn your readers and/or law enforcement to be aware of these calls. Some people stiill get taken in by these hustlers, especially the elderly.

Thank you,
Tracy Neal

It's not just telemarketers and Congressmen who want us bankrupt. I'd like to see ALL offshore contact centers legislated out of business. Sales AND Service centers.
