The fake I.R.S called me today wants me to call back and give my claim number. Scammers just have no clue how our system works.
I won the Publisher's Clearinghouse a couple days ago. He said he wanted to send me my prize. I asked where he wanted to send it. He said to my home address of course. I asked him what my home address was. He hung up on me. I'm very sad now. I'll never get my prize.
I got a message the other day that the "company I bought my computer from" (strangely they didn't know their own name) is going out of business and they have to send me two-hundred and something dollars, and to call them back.
I bought my computer at Best Buy, and it's a Samsung. I tend to have my finger on the pulse of business, and I've heard of neither going out of business...and I cannot imagine why a company that would be going out of business would be soliciting past customers to give them PARTIAL refunds for products they already bought, lol.
Unless, of course, they want my bank account number or my credit card number to "give me my refund".
