I got a call like that last month, but I thought it was funny and hung onto the message for a while when I wanted a laugh.  

Not only would the IRS never leave you a phone message like that, the grammar used in the call was pathetic.  

The caller referred to the local police as "the local cops".  Uh huh, OK, sure.   Rolleyes

Apparently some of the better anti-scammers get into the scammers systems and lock them up or delete their data.  It's fun to listen to anyway.  I haven't gotten any of these calls, so all of my ideas of how to yank their chain have not been put into effect yet. 

It is a sorry thing that people fall for this crap, but many do, especially elderly.

I've been watching some of these videos lately. My cure for insomnia. I loved one where the man said he was so glad they were coming to arrest him because he was about to be evicted and wouldn't have a place to live. Free clothes, free food and a free bed...thank goodness! LOL

Yeah I've been getting a lot of Amazon and PayPal phishing email. I just forward them to their spoofing departments.

You have to be careful because there is a scammed out of I think it's Mexico maybe Puerto Rico but it's a robo IRS call and it tries to get you to talk and it record your voice and then uses the recording and cuts it up to make it so they can access your accounts and stuff happened to my mom got her for almost 10 grand

There is a difference between my personality and my attitude.
My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

We did a little back and forth and I guess it was going to lead to my grandson needing some money wired to him so that he could get 'Home'. He was using a common name like John. You could hear in the background that he was in a phone bank. Those people must be awfully hard up for a job or have no soul.

I actually had the "Grandpa" one and being I have never been married or had kids I LOVED it as I had it on speakerphone me play "The old man" and it ended with me cussing the kid out for being so stupid to get busted and hopefully they didn't find that kilo of coke in the side door and that I hoped he'd get raped by all the bigger inmates and then die of AIDS....

They hung up when they realized I didn't care about his problems....

Something similar happened in Fremont County, WY but it was a faked kidnapping with the recordings of a family member's voice in the background to make it appear genuine. I'm sure it will spread though. These people have no soul and will burn in hell for eternity!!!!
