You should say:
We often receive calls from strangers, and most of the time, it’s not something dangerous. But there was this one time that I really thought, “well, that was close”. So one day, I was finishing my lunch in a small restaurant when I received a call from a strange number. I am a teacher so I do receive calls from strangers enquiring about my courses. I picked up and the woman on the other side said, in a serious tone: “I am from the Post Office and you have this letter from the Police notifying you to cooperate with them in a cyber gambling case.”Needless to say, I was shocked. Never had I even thought of taking part in illegal activity. So I asked her, breathlessly, what I would need to do next. She was like, if you want, I can transfer your call to the police station, then you can talk to them directly. I had nearly said yes when I caught myself wondering, “How could this post office person know so much? Are they allowed to open my letter?” So I decided to go to the post office and see the letter for myself. I found out later at the office that there was no such letter and it was a scam designed to steal money from me. It was very annoying but fortunately nothing bad happened, nothing that I know of yet anyway.
