One of the things I like about my Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is it integrates Hiya Caller ID into the stock dialer and other phone-related screens. Lately I’ve been getting robocalls from the “IRS” saying I need to call them or I’ll be arrested. Even without Hiya Caller ID, these calls are less than convincing.
Since I got the heads up from Hiya that this call was a scam, I let it go to voicemail. The message they left is great.
For those who would rather read, here’s a transcript:
We have just received a notification regarding your tax filings from the headquarters which will get expired in next 24 working hours. And once it get expired after that you will be taken under custody by the local cops, as there are 4 serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us so that we can discuss about this case, before taking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is 307-343-4915. I repeat, 307-343-4915. Thank you.
I’m assuming maybe the beginning of the robocall that says “this is the IRS” was cut off before my voicemail started recording.
Yeah, I’m not going to call that number.
