434-200-8555: Strange Bit of Engrish in this Scam Robocall

With tax season here I guess it stands to reason threatening sounding robocalls about your taxes will arrive. This voice actually enchanted me. Its stiffness and stilted bits of Engrish might inspire me to call random phones with poetry recited by a voice like hers. Listen in:

We have just received a notification regarding your tax filings from the headquarters which will get expired in the next 24 working hours. And once it get expired after that you will be taken under custody by the local police. That there are four serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us. So that we can discuss about this case. Before taking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is: 434-200-8555. I repeat: 434-200-8555. Thank you.

I called 434-200-8555. A statement announces that the number is not set up yet to receive calls:

It must say something about my life that I find robocalls intriguing, at least once in a while. This call caught me off guard with its sterile, frozen voice that nevertheless ingratiated itself to me on account of its bad English. Filing this under Landline/magicJack even though the call came to my cell phone.
