4 October 2016. If You Receive a Phone Call Claiming to Be From the IRS… It’s a Phony Baloney

_________________________________________

I received a bogus “IRS” call today. It demanded my “immediate attention” and it came from Washington DC (or a repeater there). NEVER REPLY TO SUCH FLIMFLAMMERY! It’s just the latest iteration of the Nigerian Scam. No government agency acts in such a manner. IT’S FAKE… IT’S PHONY BALONEY… IT’S A SCAM AND FRAUD! Always be leery of anyone who phones you from out of the blue… especially, those who purport to be official and who DEMAND personal information. Have a care… we live in a feral unregulated world, where Libertarians, Dems, and Repugs all slobber their admiration of the rich and their money. Pecunia non olet… “money doesn’t stink”… that’s their motto. To think that yahoos like Rod Dreher cheer on deregulation… they call themselves “conservatives” to boot (a true conservative would never back deregulation, as a bedrock of true conservatism is that mankind is fallen and in need of regulation). It does take all kinds, doesn’t it?

Russian Pleads Not Guilty to American Retail Scam

Caught Red Handed

______________________________

According to American media reports, a Russian national accused of setting up an online fraud ring that used stolen credit card details to defraud American retailers of millions of dollars plead not guilty in a Pittsburgh PA court. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Michigan-based Artur Gorlov, 28, who allegedly used the online pseudonym “Evilvodka”, was indicted on charges of conspiracy and wire fraud in 2011, but remained at large until American authorities arrested him as he disembarked at New York’s JFK Airport last month. Prosecutors have accused Gorlov of helping establish a group called “Atlanta Alliance”, which between 2005 and 2010 is believed to have run a network that used stolen credit card data to buy goods inside the USA. On Monday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that, according to prosecutors, the gang dispatched the merchandise to members of a second network who repackaged the goods and shipped them outside the USA to destinations selected by Gorlov. Prosecutors say that Gorlov used a set of websites to direct the networks and to resell the misappropriated merchandise. Authorities also say that he used the stolen credit cards to pay the fraud ring’s shipping costs and manipulated address details to circumvent US Postal Service security measures. On Monday, Gorlov entered a not guilty plea, and also waived his right to a detention hearing. The Tribune-Review reported that he’s currently being held without bail.
