My wife come in and asked me to listen to a voice mail. It was a recording of someone with an english accent saying that he was from the IRS and they have been trying to reach out to her for a 1040 audit. ( WTH is a 1040 audit anyway?) They never used her name but made veiled threats that she needs to call them back or they would take legal action.
She figured it was a scam and it was really clear to me it was. However I can see this working just like junk mail, try 10,000 people and if it works once, its worth it.
So heads up people, remember the IRS will NEVER call you saying they are starting an audit or anything else threatening. Be careful out there.
