They learned from the gasoline companies. Charge extra to put in lead. Then later charge even more to leave it out.

I hardly ever have my phone on.

I GOT one of those FAKE IRS calls
Answered it, got a human voice after punching in some numbers.This heavy accented voice is telling me he is from IRS and I have a problem.

I stopped him short and said..."You found that $30 million in that offshore Caymen account didn't you?"
Dead silence... then HUH?
"You found that account in the Caymens didn't you? Look, I was going to declare it but I just haven't had the time to arrange for it to be brought into this country. Can't you give me a break?"
More silence, this is waaayyy outside of his script and he has no clue what to do.
Some more mumbling and some yells, then a new guy gets on.
I explain it all to him and he gets speechless.
He has no idea what to do or go about it...
I tell him "Look I know I was wrong. I don't want trouble, I am going to donate it to a charity in the Cayman islands so I don't have to deal with it"
thank him for his understanding and hang up before he can say anything more.

The latest scam is telling you your SSN has been suspended due to suspected fraudulent use.
