Today I received a voicemail from a scammer saying I need to call them back regarding money owed or whatever to the IRS. The scams go back for a long time and here is a web page from the IRS on scams by phone call.

I don’t get how people can fall for these (I mean, I get how older people fall for them but young folks, I don’t get it).

Just listen to the recording and the voice:

In fact, in the past day, I received this call and three calls from “Microsoft” claiming my Windows computer (which I do not have – I use a Mac) has a virus and I need to follow their instructions to remove the virus.

I guess calls from Nigeria to America are discounted this week?
