Default Phone scam??

We've been getting calls lately from a relay service for deaf people, where someone is asking if we can prepare 300 sandwiches for them to pick up. Anyone else getting these calls? I never get too far, once I ask for a location its the same response, they'll pick up at our store, we are catering, we don't have a store, ask again for location they hang up. Just wondering if anyone else is getting these calls. Thanks.

Yep, we get a several of these a month by phone, e-mail and fax. The bad grammar is a dead give-away. You can't be too careful.

I get those relay service calls at work allot mostly for hydraulic parts. The worst part is that we all pay a tax on our phone bills to fund that relay call which is most likely placed from Nigeria or some farking place like that.

Play along, get their c/c number and call cops. It is a scam using stolen c/c.
