    Just got the IRS scam call that says a warrant has been put on my house.

    Does anyone fall for this crap?

    Old people and idiots. Just a numbers game to those who engage in such shit because theyll eventually get someone.

    I get about 5 week. my MIL almost fell for it. She's a mountain person and doesn't have internet. She was worked up for a week thinking she was in trouble, but didn't give them information. Finally called the IRS to check.

    It's like the guy in the bar who has no problem asking 100 random women if they want to hook up with him that night.

    He gets shot down constantly, but he only needs one to say yes.

    They called me. I kept him on the phone while I looked up the number on the internet. I asked to speak to a manager. "Are the police coming now? Should I wait on the porch?" etc. The guy finally told me to "fuck off," and hung up.

    My mom and dad who are in their 80s called me a few months ago asking me about this. My folks were really worried.

    These fucks prey on the elderly, and deserve a special kind of death.

    btw the real IRS sends you a certified letter.

    I pulled the old "Jim Florentine" and started changing the subject to ask him what he was wearing, was he hot, did he have a big dick etc. While he was talking I was breathing and moaning into the phone like I was jerking off.....while calling him cuddle cakes.

    The phone went dead.

    They do scam a lot of old people....scumbags.

    They called my parents...said the sherif was coming that day to arrest my mom.

    I think my dad was upset that nobody came to take her away.....

    Think of it more as the thinning of the herd.

    Yep. The one that called me said his name was David Lewis or something. Sounded like he was from Bombay though.
