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

satan at the computer

_________________________________________

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?

One of the Cabinet sent this to me, with the puckish observation, “Your ‘friend’ has his E-mail account compromised. I got this from someone who must be in his address book… I’m not in his address book”:

This message may be coming to you as a surprise, but I need your help. Few days back, we made an unannounced vacation trip to Manila, Philippines. Everything was going fine until last night when we got mugged on our way back to the hotel, all cash and credit card were stolen off from us, but luckily, we still have our passports with us.

I’ve been to the Embassy and the Police here, but they’re not helping issues at all they asked us to wait for 3 weeks, but we can’t wait till then and our flight leaves in few hours from now, but we’re having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we settle the hotel bills, Dealing with foreign authorities here is extremely frustrating, It would take us about 24 hours to get everything straighten out before we could leave, we are freaked out at the moment…I really need your financial assistance.

Please, let me know if you could help us out financially?

It couldn’t have happened to a “nicer” guy. It serves him right to have his e-mail account hacked after what he’s done to others… pass the jug and cheer. There IS a God in Heaven, after all, and His Justice does take passing strange forms…
