    The wife almost fell for this...

    We got a message, supposedly from the IRS demanding an immediate $4500 payment for 3 infractions over the past 7 years. The phone number was 209-782-0039 and the "agent's" name was Nicki Johnson. My dumb ass wife was ready to give her her bank info over the phone...until I walked into the room. A quick Google search of the phone number provided all I needed to know (I'm a PI) and the bitch (fake agent) hung up before I could rip into her. The gullible (wife) and elderly need to be aware that this is apparently happening a lot right now, according to my local sheriff. It's also on the front page of the IRS website.

    That is all. :mad:

    Thank God I was in town...she would have paid them. It was a very convincing message threatening jail time, loss of house, car, etc. She scared the shit out me how fast she fell for this. She's got a Masters degree for Christ sake!

    For real. Mothers and Grandmothers are fucking clueless. They think if they call your house it has to be legit.

    "Microsoft" called my dad the other day. Said his system was compromised and he needs to provide his S.S and credit card info. :rolleye: Pops said he could barely speak English.

    I gave my mom a good talking to years ago. She used to let fucking Jehovah Witnesses in the fucking house!!

    It was a land line message. (I don't know why people still have land lines.) Wish I had saved it...it was very convincing to a gullible school teacher. If I hadn't been home...FUCK! It was like a terrorist threatening to put her in jail...over the phone. A valuable lesson was learned.

    The longer you stayed in school, the less intelligent you are. As a general rule.
