A man with an Indian accent called telling me he was with the US Government. Because I am such a good person with no criminal history and paid my taxes on time, he wanted to send me $9,000.

Same here. The Indian guy offered me $9,000. When I asked him why, he gave some answer I could not understand. It was a really thick Indian accent. When I asked him if he knew who I was, he hung up. People will do anything for a scam!

Yep, they've now called a couple of times (finally blocked their number) Offering $9,000. I played along for a while (not recommended) before asking for their Government ID number - they hung up.

hang up call, then on call back number is not in service, press any key to get operator assistance... DON'T play! Great way for your call to be routed outside the country - and charged!

Same scam as others associated with this number. Clearly this has been going on for a while. Why have the authorities not followed up on this?
