I've started getting calls from a mobile phone registered around Gulfport, MS. I finally answered and all the guy would say is " I have important matters to discuss with (me)", and I asked him who he was and informed him that he was on a mobile phone, I had looked it up, and that I was quite aware of his calls and asked again, which he says the same as before (what a tool!). I finally told him "Sorry" and hung up. I'm not telling him if he reached the right person or not. I know how alot of scams work. It's simple social engineering, and although I doubt this is a scam, I'm not talking to the guy unless he calls from a land line and will state the company he's working for, and give me enough time to verify it.
This could be past bill, could be student loan. I dunno. I won't even verify my first name to them, though.

The government wouldn't have a hard time getting your information if they wanted it. They wouldn't need to go out of their way by sending you another piece of paper.
If you pay your taxes, you have to put your address on the 1040. Your employer has your address as well, that's in the system so that you can get your W-2s. Then, your address would be in the database due to your driver's license—and you're technically supposed to change it whenever you move.
