Lately I have been getting a lot of calls from numbers that come from phones that hide who they are. These people hide behind numbers that are a City and State not a name that real numbers have. this is getting to be a big pain in the butt.
There are two scams that are really big. These call say that they are from the Government. The two scams are the IRS and Grant scams.
The IRS scams says that you owe money and if it isn't paid they will get you arrested.
The Grant Scams they tell you that are getting a Grant that is for a sum of money.
First of all everyone knows that the US Government doesn't call people. They send letters. If they need to talk to you the letter will tell you to call.
These scammers are not in the US they are in India. If you listen close you will hear a lot of background noise. These are Boiler Rooms. These people don't speak clear. Their accents are very heavy. They don't know how to say words right in English.
The one thing stop answering call that don't say who they are or a number you don't know. IF you Google they will tell you about the number. Most of calls are from Ghost Numbers.
