I have been reading online since I received a call at around 10am. Turns out that this is a fake kidnapping scam. Do not answer.

See this; http://reasoningwithmonsters.wordpress.com/tag/203-400-5383/ Similar Modus Operandi; Your family member was in an accident (I need to verify her name.... ) I did not provide any name, just asked him to have the police call me, if in fact my family member had been in an accident. Instant Hang-up by the scammer with a Puerto Rican Accent Who Speaks HORRIBLE Spanish. If you receive ta call from this number, DO NOT ANSWER.
