A few days ago I find a missed call on my caller ID. A NJ phone number and the name Allsec Tech. So I punch call back, and get a recording saying the number has been disconnected. Ok, forget about it. Yesterday, same thing. Wassup here? This AM, phone rings and the same name and number show up on the screen. I answer and this guy with a very heavy Indian accent asks for my wife. I ask if I can tell her what he wants and he says she's pre-qualified for a no-fee no APR credit card and yadda yadda yadda. I ask what bank issues this card and he rattles off some unintelligible name (Georgia something). I say no thanks and hang up.<br><br>Something smells funny, so I do a web search for Allsec Tech and find an IT company based in India and w/locations in the U.K., NJ, and GA. Nothing about banks or credit cards, and no phone no's matching my caller ID. So I call NYPD and they refer me to the Secret Service! I speak to an agent who takes down the information and my phone no. and says they'll see what they can find.<br><br>Guess who just called again 15 minutes ago? The same putz who called this AM. Asks for my wife again, and I tell him I'm her. He sounds a little doubtful, but I assure him I'm my wife, but I just have a bad cold. So he begins his pitch, and I stop him to say I need to call back in an hour and can I reach him at the number on my screen. He stalls and fumbles and wants to verify my name, addy and SS# now. Sorry, I tell him. Can't talk now because I'm late for the afternoon shift at the fraud unit, but I'd be happy to call him ba..... *click* Hello? Hellooooooo...<br>Hmmm, must be a bad connection. <br><br>
