Text I received:
WARNING:Criminal Investigation Division of I.R.S is filing a lawsuit against you, for more information call on +1-2025808292 on urgent basis otherwise your arrest warrant will be forwarded to your local police department and your property and bank accounts and social benefits will be frozen by government.
So I texted back: My social benefits will be frozen? Say it isn’t so.
Received: Please call the number.
Me: It’s a Sunday, can’t it wait until tomorrow?
Received: No, call the number.
Me: I’m busy.
Received: We are notifying the police.
Me: Okay, let me know when they are on their way.
Received: Please take this serious.
Me: Okay, I’m seriously turning on the outside light waiting for them.
Received: We can stop them from visiting you if you agree to take care of your IRS matter tonight.
Me: I bet you want money don’t you?
Received: You owe $2654.59
Me: And I bet you want me to pay with Western Union or a gift card of some sort.
Received: Yes that’s right.
Me: Well will you accept a $29 Starbucks Card and a $63 Olive Garden card instead?
Received: Police are on the way.
Received: F¥€k 0££
Me: I take it this isn’t the IRS then.
