Recently I have had a rash of odd phone calls with people claiming to be from various countries who claim they want to obtain their private pilots license here in Homer.
The phone numbers are always blocked from my phone and when they claim to be from Germany or Italy they do not seem to be able to respond in those languages when I start speaking it to them. They hang up soon after that point.
Minutes ago I had another one where the guy made sure he said " I am calling from Paris, you know , in France ! " but his phoney accent sounded more like East Brooklyn.
I wounder if the TSA is making calls to see if I am taking foreign students or if it is some other scam...
