    This reminds me of the Yellow Pages scam call reported at Callercenter.com. Based on the complaint, the scammers call to verify information about “free” listing in the Yellow Pages. The scammers even went as far as creating a fake website and spoof caller IDs to show a 1-800 number in an effort to appear as legit as possible. This phone scam is hard to spot.
