I got another call this week telling me that criminal charges have been laid against me for income tax problems, and I assume that if I give them all my personal financial information, they’ll help me fight them (I deleted the message as soon as I realized what scam it was).
This is the second call I’ve received like this in the last couple of months. It made me angry - even though I know it is a scam and I just delete the messages, I can see someone who is not as conversant with scams becoming very upset at getting a call like that. Even thought I know it was a scam, the message was still upsetting to me - no one likes getting a call telling them that they have criminal charges laid against them.
This can’t be legal, can it? If you can’t impersonate a police officer, how are these fuckers getting away with impersonating a federal revenue agency?
