I was called at my home number and was told by a India speaking man named Alex Cruise that the government passed a bill to help people get out of debt and that I was eligible for $7800. He gave the address were they were located as 200 Independence HHH building SW Washington, D.C. 20201 and a call back number that suggested that they were in DC (202) 621-0241. But the catch is that they want you to send them $200 to India that will be refunded back along with the $7800. When i asked why would the federal government give you money but first ask for a processing fee-they came up with a good explanation. So after sending my money and waiting for them to receive it and give me the code to receive my money promised, they put you on hold forever and they come back ever few minutes like they waiting on you to hang up but waited until finally they said they were having problem with getting me the money but the need my card info or account to put the money in my account and that it would take 30min. i know i was stupid for this but what if is how i played it out.

  • I spoke with someone named Alex at first then I spoke with a women both have India-accents(sp). I have a copy of the western union receipt of where i sent my money to and who they told me to sent it to. Just recently, about two weeks ago they called again but this time they asked for my wife and tried to run the same scam on her. I don't know how they got our home number because we only give out our home number to doctors,job applications, etc. However, we do on occasion-fill out info cards online in which we give out our number and i am sure this is how they are getting their info on us and other victims. Long story short, my wife blew them off and said call her tomorrow in which I've been waiting for that day-cause when it comes I'm going to have the police on the line to listen and to ask they trace the call.
