However, sometimes junk still slips through. For example, today there have been three messages from the same number. Each time the message is a robotic voice claiming to be from the IRS threatening us with legal action. For what, it doesn't say. The whole thing is very amateurish. It starts out by saying:
"The IRS is filing a lawsuit against...[this is where a professional organization would insert a name to personalize the message. This time there's an extended silence, then...] you. For more information on case file call immediately on our department number XXX-XXX-XXXX."Of course, I ignored the message and immediately deleted it. There have been so many print, TV and radio announcements about scams like this I can't believe anyone would fall for it at this point. However, I guess they wouldn't keep doing it if there wasn't at least some type of response.
