All we have to do is hear "IRS" and we have to run to the toilet to throw up.....
Lately I have been on the receiving end of scammer phone calls and voice mail messages that say that I am being sued by the IRS. Final notice. Please call back at ------. Blah blah blah.
But, funny enough, the first time I heard the recording (on Wednesday) I actually called back on my office phone. And the guy who answered had an accent that sounded to be from India to me. The conversation was really strange, and at least I did not give him my entire phone number, because I realized that if I did, the harrassment might get worse. And, after the initial rush of adrenaline, I realized this was a scam. Not only that, but a bit of research indicates that the scam has been going on for awhile.
So, please....all of you (myself somewhat included) gullible people, do not call these people back, and no THE IRS IS NOT SUING YOU. Nope, that would be a big fat audit, and you would be fully aware. I worked for two dentists who were audited ~ the first was just a bit too enthusiastic to write off everything as a business expense and the second was convicted of tax evasion. I should have known better. I admit to moments of total stupidity.
So, what's up with you?
