These guys scammed my mom to "scan her computer for viruses" about 6 months ago. After a little lecture from me (hee hee) she now knows. They just called her again this past week saying that they had made an error and was going to refund her money for the purchase. They asked for her checking account number, saying that the only way they will give the refund is via direct deposit to her account. DO NOT FALL FOR THE REFUND TRICK

On June 5th 2015. I receive a call 8:01 In the morning it suppose to be my food stamps case worker. She called back after I contact the Food Stamp Office and the worker called me back on the 661 748-0240 number. It was a Skype number that I could not call back or it would not allow me to return the call. I did not know who my worker was and I was told that she did not have a number. I have to email the worker who I did not know name or call a 888 number and she will contact me. I missed my appointment because the worker called and it went directly to my voice mail. I never heard the phone range. I spoke with my domestic violence counselor and she never heard of a Skype number so she typed it into the computer and she came up with this number is a scam. I have heard countless people received calls from Skype numbers and their food stamps or welfare was cut off. You do not know who your worker is and ever six months you are given another worker according to what I was told at the welfare office if you miss the call and it goes to your voice mail you may be able to get the worker to reschedule a interview or you may have to reapply for food stamps or welfare which could take a month. Whats next a biochip so we do not have to have a redetermination application. This is a easy way people can be cut off their benefits because of them not knowing their food stamp workers number and name.

I get calls from this number about once a week. I answer before looking at the number, then hear the heavy Indian accent and hang up the phone. They immediately call back, I dont answer, and dont hear from them for several days.
