    Social Security scam

    Got two calls today from the Social Security Administration. When an operator came on they asked, in TERRIBLE English what my name was. First time I said Bob Obama. They hung up. Next time I said Bob Hedges. They asked me, in really bad English for my SSN. I said it was 357-19-2728. (Get it S&W Revolver collectors?). They made me repeat it...and hung up.
    Bet they were just sure they were gonna steal my identity.
    I just love to screw with these idiots.

    I got a Call from the IRS saying they had a no bail warrant for my arrest and they were coming to get me unless I called a number and paid what I owed. I'm still waiting for them to come and get me.

    I’ve gotten those calls myself.. when they say that the police will be there shortly to arrest me I ask how many cops are they sending.?
    They always ask why.. I tell them I haven’t killed anyone lately and a bunch of cops will make great witnesses..
    High body count means I’ll be the Boss in the Prison..

    I can't believe folks fall for this stuff. I mean, these people can hardly speak English.
    I just hope there ain't a real Bob Hedges out there with that SSN.

    I don't answer calls from these scammers or open e-mails from them. They leave message's on my answering machine telling me that my SS account has been frozen but I still get payments to my account. Now I get calls about my Microsoft account and that I will be debit for $299 if I don't call. I don't have such an account so I called the number they left and I said I don't have an account and he hung up on me. Scams, he didn't even try to get info from me which I would never give. I guess he didn't like the sound of my voice. Oh he answered the phone as if he was working at Microsoft. This is the first time I ever returned a call and will be my last, I let my curiosity get the better of me.

    I think these scammer are targeting older people who fall for that crap (I'm older..lol). If I succumbed to ever scam, I'd be destitute and they would still try to scam me. I tend to transfer all mailings to my round file and electronic messages to my electronic round file as well and I get a ton with an active .com website. I mean everyday, at least a dozen panderings.
