Answered a phone call, there was a prerecorded message from Daniel Case from Department of Treasury. English was very poor English and it said to call back with an urgent matter. It also indicated that failure to respond would be a criminal act and prosecution by a grand jury would be eminent. This is suspicious so I went to the US Dept of Treasury website and saw the scam phone call notice, also called and it was in the US Dept of treasury greeting to be aware the dept does not contact individuals by phone.
