I was late getting home tonight. When I'm this late I'll grab food in the city, usually eating on the train. As I was walking through the station with my food, water, napkins, and backpack, I felt almost off-balance already, and my phone started ringing. Looking at the display, I saw a 631 area code number. This usually means it's somewhat important. I was thrown further off balance trying to get the phone answered, and get at least one of my earbuds in my ear. I almost dropped the food, and myself for that matter, and answered the phone.
"Hello, we have been trying to reach you. This call is officially a final notice from the IRS, Internal Revenue Service. The reason of this call is to inform you that IRS is filing a lawsuit against you.”
Have you gotten one of these? It's been a year or more, but this is about the tenth final notice I've gotten from these scammers. My reaction tonight is one of anger. I almost performed the epileptic slide just trying to answer the phone, only to get this call again. I also have to wonder who falls for these. Literally.
