This is an example of the calls going around from these scumbags. There's a few things that should be a tip off. They gave no specific information knowing who I am. It was a Robo call. This IRS only does business in this way by certified, registered mail or by a process server coming to your home. Even if some scumbag should come to your door the documents themselves will list all your personal details that crooks have no way of knowing. Take it and don't leave them in under any circumstance.
The IRS itself warned on August 2nd, 2016 there's been a surge in automated phone scam calls.-- "The IRS has seen an increase in “robo-calls” where scammers leave urgent callback requests through the phone telling taxpayers to call back to settle their “tax bill.” These fake calls generally claim to be the last warning before legal action is taken.... Scammers are evolving and using more and more automated calls in an effort to reach the largest number of victims... If you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS directly at 800-829-1040."
Don't be stupid. Before responding in anyway what-so-ever call the one mentioned above to make an inquiry no matter the circumstance which you've been approached.
Hey I may look stupid.
May even be possibly dumb...
BUT I didn't just crawl out from under the cabbage patch yesterday either !
It's a cell phone number out of Los Angeles, California.
Not exactly what the IRS would be using, is it?
