Dear Customer,

It is hoax. Don't fall for it. Don't communicate with them and report to police. Call your bank and ask and talk with them. They will tell you the same thing.

The key is when they ask for this non-residential tax code. Every time it is used, it is used with some type of scheme.

I will send you some website links for your further reference in the next posting, soon.

Regards,

Fiona

Dear Customer,

This type of scams always want us to send them some money in exchange. Some how through communicating with us, they can figure out how much they can ask from us and how they can ask us to send them the money. So, sometimes, they ask for very little money like 700 or 1,000 in exchange of sending us a large sum of money.

Don't communicate with them. These are scams and hoax. They come in many types and shapes. Sometimes, they even target some sub populations like disabled, etc. When we hear that some data is broken into. Usually, they are sold to these type of scam people. That is why they always have up to date information when they contact us.

Below are links of discussions for your reference.

Fiona
