Gold Coast — free gas card scam
Received call from employee 32141 allegedly from Gold Coast International in Phoenix AZ. Heavy Indian accent. Very insistent. Assuring me I am going to be receiving a free $300 gas card for some reason - I think to do with using my Visa card - he was hard to understand. I figured it was a scam, but was curious as he kept insisting this was a free gas card, that would be delivered in 3 - 5 days. He verified my name and city and then he got to the "all you have to do is pay $4.90 for shipping and handling". I immediately said no thank you. He became even more insistent - why would I not want to spend $4.90 for $300 of free gas - I would not have to pay anything until I got the card. etc. etc. I hung up. We did not get as far as him asking for my credit card info. but I see from similar scams described on this site, that would have been next. Watch out!!
