Catching the Scammers

Posted by taxguru on October 27, 2016

There has been a lot of press coverage about the scumbags who call or write to people, impersonating IRS agents and demanding payments of fictitious tax debts.  We have received plenty of those communications, as have some of our clients.   So far, nobody that we know has fallen victim to these sleazebags.  However, it appears that many people have forked over some serious amounts of money to those a-holes.

When I receive a scam email from an IRS imposter, I forward the entire email, including any attachments, to the IRS’s special email address, phishing@irs.gov.  Some times I receive an acknowledgement back from IRS, and some times, nothing back.  What we never receive back are details of how well they are doing at tracking down, stopping and prosecuting those criminals. 

Every so often, a story pops up in the press about the progress against the scammers, such as this in USA Today.

Feds charge 56 in fraud scheme that siphoned $300M from 15,000 victims

With the ease of setting up these kinds of scams, it would be foolish to let our guard down just because these particular gangs have been caught.  For every internet criminal who is nabbed, dozens more pop up to take his/her place.

It is interesting to scroll through the actual indictment of these crooks.  Most of the people named are in India, so who knows how many of them the USA can actually catch and prosecute.  There are a fair number of names with USA locations, including several from here in Florida. Hopefully, they are not donors to Hitlery, the Clinton Crime Family Foundation, or the DemonRat Party so they can be prosecuted and severely punished.

One way to deal with IRS imposters…

Posted by taxguru on September 29, 2016

Sherry found this hilarious video of a guy turning the tables on a telephone scammer who can barely speak English and wants the victim to pay delinquent Federal taxes to IRS by purchasing Target gift cards. There are too many obvious signs that this call is a scam to even count; but some people still fall for these.

   

 

There is one very interesting twist to this phone call that I have never seen described in any other accounts of similar scam IRS calls.  After the intended victim reveals that  he is screwing with the scammer, the scammer basically claims to be a Pakistani terrorist follower of Osama Bin Laden.  Has our FBI looked into the possibility that the IRS imposters are funding Islamic terrorist organizations?

The latest “Going-Nowhere” Headline

IRS Launches Investigation Of Clinton Foundation

Anyone expecting this to lead to any actual actions against the Clinton Organized Crime Family must have the shortest memory in the world.  Before the announced results of the FBI’s investigation of Hitlery’s treasonous actions with her email, the FBI chief had a public reputation of being an honest straight shooting law enforcement official.  That reputation was shot to smithereens when he proclaimed that laws do not apply to the Clintons. 

With the IRS, we have a commissioner and other top officials who have already  publicly perjured themselves in order to cover up crimes committed by the current bHo Regime.  To expect any of them to in the least bit sully the great philanthropic reputation of the Clinton Crime Foundation is ludicrous.     

Clinton-Crime-Laundromat-C

The Clinton Organized Crime Family has raked in billions of dollars in bribes from around the world that have been used to keep them living the lives of kings and queens.  If they succeed in retaking the White House, their takings will reach into the trillions, as they will have the ability to plunder the full US Treasury.

On the campaign trail, Billary will actually continue to brag about their charitable giving because of the millions they have deducted on their 1040s for payments to their illegal crime foundation.

A good summary of how their crime foundation works is the recently released documentary version of the extremely well documented and not disproven book, Clinton Cash.  The full documentary is available on YouTube.

 

Update: Hillary’s campaign denies FBI, IRS investigations into Clinton Foundation

Normally, given Hitlery’s track record of having 99.99% of everything she has said being an outright lie, this could very well be true.  Both IRS and FBI are tools of the bHo Regime and are being used very aggressively to maintain DemonRat control of the government. It’s futile to expect anyone at IRS or FBI to do anything to harm the Clintons’ chances of taking back the White House for their third and fourth terms.

Asking the Fox to guard the henhouse…

Posted by taxguru on July 28, 2016

Here’s a perfect example, in today’s news, of how insane it is to expect the IRS to seriously investigate the crimes of the Clinton Family Crime Foundation.

Documents indicate IRS officials knew of Tea Party targeting since 2011

Judicial Watch has been doing the job that the elected Republican leaders should have been doing.  While it is extremely unlikely that anyone at IRS will ever be punished for any of the crimes they committed in persecuting opponents of the DemonRat Party, the exposure of the extent of those crimes is helpful in understanding how the ruling class functions in Washington DC, the District of Corruption.

It would be a lot more newsworthy if they could find anyone in the bHo Regime who isn’t a law breaking criminal.

IRS can’t protect our private data…

Posted by taxguru on June 9, 2016

It’s not a good feeling  to realize that we are all forced, at the point of a gun, to reveal every single bit of our financial information to our overlords at the IRS, who can’t seem to do a very good job of protecting that information from the (other) bad guys who want to steal our money and our identities.  And, as if that isn’t bad enough, when the top dogs at IRS are confronted with these facts, they lie about how extensive their security lapses are.  This lack of honesty isn’t actually very surprising, considering the IRS Commissioner’s penchance for committing perjury in his own congressional testimony.
