Default Scam?

Just got a phone call at the house. This guy can barely speak English. Tells me he works for the US Government... no Dept., just the US Government. Then he tells me I'm getting a rebate check. Well, now I'm getting quite suspicious! I haven't got a check from the the Gov. for over 20 years, why are they sending me one now?? In all my dealings with the Gov, the checks go the other way. Then he tells me he needs to confirm my identity so he can tell me how much my rebate check is for and he needs to know my DOB to do that! Hmmmmmm, something stinks. Told him, if he's for real, then just send me my check, I don't need to know how much it is... boy, that pissed him off!! I hung up.

Sound like a scam to you?

That would all depend on your DOB.

Maybe, but before I give you a definitive answer I need your social security number.

Scam? Heck yeah!

Well, I was going to tell him 1/10/08, because maybe he really thought I was born yesterday!
