SPAM TEXTS PHISHING LINKS SMS SCAM
Wanted me to call back 206-279-8769 to discuss issues related to my tax filing. And if I dont call them, I will face "consequences"! SCAM! Dont call back. Not the IRS.
Not a native English speaker. So that raises a red flag. and why would the IRS employ robo calls to reach me? It could send a mail or call me directly! The fact is that the call is not addressed to anyone specific. It's a spam call fishing for the "mentally challenged" or stupid immigrants to scam!
Got a voice mail with thick foreign accent warning that I could get arrested if I dont call back 347-305-6225! Sounded funny! Someone playing a dirty scam game..
