I knew this was fake. But they do leave a nice automated phone message stating a claim number and the 800-829-7650 number to call back by end of business day today!

So I called. Automated voice wants your SS# of course. I did not put in. Waited on line. Guy answered and immediately put me back on hold. Then came back and gave his last name and some ID#. Then asked me for my name. Gave him my claim # they left. Asked me for my name. Told him my initials. Told me he needed my name. Told him to snail mail me. Said they do not do that. He got all flustered and threatening.

Called the local IRS number got the 1040 number. Called and then asked the Real IRS if there was any issues. Doh! None.

So spread the word. This was a pretty threatening call and I could see a lot of people calling and just putting in their SS# as they are scared.

Lady at IRS said to never give them anything over phone if you don't feel comfortable and ask for it to be mailed out.

Peace and Blessings

Good advice. As the economy worsens, you will see more of these scams
“One thing to realize about our fractional reserve banking system is that, like a child’s game of musical chairs, as long as the music is playing, there are no losers.”
Andrew Gause, Monetary Historian

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Thomas Jefferson

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin... But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit .” Josiah Charles Stamp

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” Henry Ford
