Got a call from the DHS today…

Apparently I am going to jail, but I need to call them back to confirm my information.

Yeah…rrriiiggghhhttt.

I got contacted by the FBI yesterday.
Apparently they are gonna charge me with a crime if I didn’t call them back immediately and confirm my personal information.
I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure if the FBI wanted to charge me they’d be getting my personal information in person

The IRS was supposed to arrest me a couple of years ago. Maybe they couldn’t find my address which was printed on my tax return.

I got a call from the IRS a while back telling me that if I didn’t pay back taxes immediately I’d be thrown into jail but we could resolve it over the phone immediately. I toyed around with them for a bit and finally they got frustrated and said they were sending the police right now if I didn’t do as they said. Surprisingly I got a call on call waiting from ‘the police department’ telling me that I must do as the IRS said because they were on their way.

I said, “Great, I’m waiting outside for you, come and get me.” They must have got lost.

Sad thing is I know someone who actually fell for that and lost $15k. :grimacing:

I got a call from the local “EBay” facility the other day and the Indian-sounding man at the other end told me he was from, “Medicare verification.” I said the call said he was from EBay, added a few crude remarks about what he could do to himself, and hung up. I regret not having dicked with him for awhile.

I once did this:

Caller: Well sir, I just wanted to,
Me: Ma’am.
Caller: Sir?
Me: I’m not a sir, I’m a ma’am.
Caller: (Hangs up)

I signed up to get some miracle water by this amazing spiritual man on TV, Peter Popoff.

It was free! :slight_smile:

(Ok, maybe not)

I stopped answering my phone. But not from the wife, she would get mad.

I get these from time to time. Every time I get these calls I ask for the case number and AUSA information. They usually hang up afterward.
