Yes. I answered back with my best Mandarin and they sent me $800 for my effort to attempt a Mandarin conversation.

Yup, I got it too earlier this week and like you didn't stay long enough to find out. My colleague received a similar call today and she couldn't speak Mandarin so she just hung up.

I am amazed if such a scam works. Need to pay upfront for something that is dangled in front, verbally.
Well, this type of scam seems to always work - it has worked in the past and continues to work - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance_fee_fraud which this calling scam is a variation of.

Actually, this particular callings scam has been going through Malaysia recently and the scam has netted quite a number of victims (going by reports in the papers - one man even lost over RM1 million in the hopes of getting RM24 million)

They're playing a numbers game. To filter out the idiots from the average man on the street, so that the former will fall into the ploy and make a generous donation.
