Default IRS called

gave me a call back number...and I just couldn't help myself! Some guy with an Indian accent (I think he is brother of the guy who calls to tell me that my computer is fatally infected with a virus and wants me to give him control over my computer so he can fix it) proceeds to tell me all the bad things that will happen to me within the next 3 hours including seizure of property destroying my credit, and finally deporting me. He paused and asked if I had anything to say and I gave him a resounding fortrot uniform.
His number is (702) 874-3595 if anyone wants to call It's a nevada number so I think it might be LV Steve playing a joke on me

I've had a few of those calls. Idiots display their number so I call them back repeatedly and harass the sh!t out of them. And yes, they are always Indian or Paki.

We were getting the IRS calls three to five times a day a few weeks ago. New York area code cell phone was the caller ID.
Yeah, the IRS will have a woman with a thick Indian accent call me with a burner cell phone to resolve a tax issue.......

You guys must be in the wrong area code!! I get calls almost every day on my cell phone telling me that I have won a free trip to the Bahamas. I don't know why it's always the Bahamas, why not Jamaca every once in a while? And they come from different area codes, also, so there isn't much use blocking the numbers.

Best Regards, Les

One time when an IRS scammer called me, I told him that I was tired of paying money to the Government, that I had guns, and when the IRS comes to my door, I'll kill every one of them. I wonder what the guy thought of calling a crazy American.

I'm still waiting for the black SUV"s the last IRS call said they'd send. I never thought to tell them I'd come out shooting. I think next time I'll ask if they can hold off until I can get rid of the dead bodies first. I try to think of new comebacks. Maybe I'll ask how they found out about all the cash I got from the Nigerian Prince. I'm expecting that to show up in my account any day now.

I'm retired, what else do I have to entertain myself?

I have fun messing with medical professionals and their office staffers. I can't imagine how much amusement one could get from dealing with scammers. Sigh............hardcase60

My Dad used to deal with unwelcome phone calls two ways:

#1 "Control room!"

#2 "Is it done? Any witnesses?"

When they say it is the IRS calling, I usually respond with, "This is the FBI Field Agent Office, Agent Hamilton speaking. How may I help you?" Instant hangup.

if anyone's interested here's the number 1-845-667-7861 for the young lady that keeps calling to inform me that I won a free cruse and only needs my credit card number to bill the tax and wife or significant others ticket to. Tell her Mr. Eagle said he doesn't need them..

Not the IRS, but annoying calls trying to sell me an extended warranty for my '14 Charger, a car I don't own.

IRS calls, Microsoft security and extended warranty about covers it. Blocking their numbers is like three card monte, its always under the other card. My wife gets the free cruises, darn it.
