I had a disturbing experience this morning. I answered a phone call and heard a recorded woman's voice. She claimed to be from the Internal Revenue
Service, and insisted that I, or my legal representative, immediately call a phone number she gave.
She warned me not to disregard this call. Her tone was threatening. Luckily, this proved to be a scam, and not really the IRS. The real IRS will
send a letter by snail mail about any problem with your tax return, and will not call you unexpectedly like this, as the websites of many consumer
organizations, and the IRS itself will confirm.
I just wanted to warn anyone on ATS, who happens to live in the United States, to not be taken in by these scam artists, do not give them your
information, or send them money, and don't let them intimidate you.
