IRS

Just a quick word of caution to all forum members. There have been a rash of both phone calls and e-mails purported to be from the IRS. These are all scams! The IRS does not call you with threats nor do they e-mail you with threats or requests for information. If you get one of these calls hang up on them. They seem to be particularly preying on older folks.

My Mother has gotten 3 calls from them......SAD!
I wonder if they have a way to just target older people? I have not received any calls......

Of course they track older people. AARP? Your DOB is public info. Do a yellow pages search by name and the age of all with that name comes up.

Gotten 3 so far, we have a good old fashioned answering machine. No harm to us but please don't respond. In fact the recommendation is to forward the callback number to the FBI/SEC.

If the IRS is trying to find many RVers, especially full timers, they're going to have a hard time.

We don't always have an address.

We have not gotten any calls, but if we did I would ask the guy where I could deliver the money to and see what he would say.

It is sad that many folks get so intimidated by the mere mention of the IRS that they don't think. One of my clients got a notice from the IRS and just paid it. It was for over $8500 and he didn't owe it. Now we have to try to get it back.

We just finished doing a funeral for an aunt. I think the funeral home sold my home phone and cell phone numbers. We have had a barrage of nuisance calls ever since.

These people that try and take advantage of people are just plain bottom feeders!

Same place the calls I have been getting! Illinois! 4 calls today, filed a complaint with the FCC ,and the 4th time they called, I told them to take me off their calling list......quite so far......the number on caller ID was 217-549-6214, it is listed all over the internet when a search is done, caller stated he was from Microsoft.........I told him he has been reported and the FCC was monitoring my phone line.......he has not called back......

A CPA in our firm in AL got several scam calls. He led them on and on for about 20 minutes. Funny part was he asked to speak to the supervisor and was put on hold for about a minute then the same guy came back on with a different name same voice. These people pray on older people who are terrified of the IRS. Pay by credit card and they pay. Awful!!!!

DW got one months ago, she just told them I handled all the money and they'd have to call back. Never heard from them again.

Here I thought someone had come up with an independent rear suspension for my Dutch Star.
