Since the beginning of January I have received four phone calls from people claiming to be employees of the IRS telling me I need to pay several thousand dollars in back taxes or my property and savings will be confiscated and I will be fined $30,000 and sentenced to five years in jail. What makes this hilarious is that I don't owe any back taxes and the person calling me had a very pronounced East Indian accent. These IRS scammers must think us Americans are stupid. I did find out however, that the scammers have scammed approxiately 100 million dollars from people, most of them elderly, using this tactic. It appears that everywhere we turn crooks are trying to separate us from our money. I hope these sammers don't start sending us certified letters claiming we owe back taxes.
IRS Scammers Are Hilarious
