6/2/14 - TODAY, SOME PITIFUL MALE PERSON WHO GAVE HIS TELEPHONE NUMBER AS (202) 864-1041 AND WHO GAVE HIS EXTENSION AS x241, TELEPHONED OUR HOME WITH THE INTENTION OF SHOWERING ME WITH FEAR.  MY TELEPHONE ANNOUNCED THAT THE CALL WAS FROM WASHINGTON D.C.  THAT, IN ITS SELF SOUNDED STRANGE AND I WAS NOT IMPRESSED.  THE POOR SOUL WENT ON TO IDENTIFY HIMSELF AS AN AGENT FROM THE IRS.  HE SAID HIS NAME WAS MIKE JONES.  I TOLD HIM THAT HE DIDN'T SOUND LIKE A MIKE JONES TO ME.  HE HAD A HEAVY ASIAN ACCENT BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING ELSE.  HERE'S THE WAY THE CONVERSATION WENT:

HIM:  IS THIS ROSE?  DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE ARRESTED BY THE IRS IN 45 MINUTES?   THE IRS HAS A LAWSUIT AGAINST YOU AND YOU WILL BE ARRESTED.  

ME:  WHO ARE YOU AND WHO ARE YOU WITH?

HIM: I AM WITH THE IRS IN WASHINGTON D.C.  I PROMISE YOU WILL BE ARRESTED IN 45 MINUTES.

I TOLD HIM SOMETHING TO SHOW I WAS NOT AFRAID AND THEN I HUNG UP.  MY HUSBAND CALLED UP HIS TELEPHONE NUMBER BUT HE DID NOT ANSWER WITH THE IRS I.D. AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL HIM AND PROMPTLY HUNG UP.

I CALLED UP MY TAX MAN AND HE SAYS THAT THE IRS ALWAYS COMMUNICATES WITH PEOPLE VIA MAIL.  BY THE WAY,  I HAVE NEVER BEEN SERVED WITH ANY LEGAL PAPERS EITHER.

I NOW RECALL SOMETHING SIMILAR SEVERAL YEARS AGO WHERE A MAN SAID HE WAS CALLING FROM THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION.   I CHECKED THE PEOPLE THERE AND THEY HAD NO ONE BY HIS NAME.

1/16/15 -  THIS A.M. BEFORE 10:00, THE PHONE RANG WITH SOME STRANGE I.D. #.  I USUALLY DO NOT PICK IT UP WHEN I DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE I.D. BUT SOMETIMES I GET CURIOUS AND I DO.  TODAY, WAS ONE OF THOSE DAYS.  THE ARABIC VOICE SAID THAT HE HAD FIXED MY COMPUTER EARLIER THIS YEAR.  THERE WERE TWO ARABIAN FELLOWS THAT FIXED MY COMPUTER WHICH LASTED ABOUT 3/4 OF A DAY AS THEY HAD TO CLEAN IT UP AND IT TOOK MANY HOURS.  WE KEPT IN TOUCH DURING ALL OF THAT TIME AND KEPT COMMUNICATING VIA THE INTERNET.  I WAS DETERMINED NOT TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER AFTER XP WINDOWS NO LONGER WERE SECURED.  I THOUGHT OF TRYING THE FIX METHOD VIA THE INTERNET AS I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE CARRYING MY TOWER OVER TO BEST BUY AS THEY WANTED ME TO. THE END RESULT IS THAT I WAS REASONABLY SATISFIED WITH THE WORK AND MY COMPUTER IS STILL WORKING TO MY SATISFACTION.  THE ONLY THING IS THAT SOME ASIAN KEEPS CALLING ME AND TELLS ME THAT HE FIXED MY COMPUTER BUT WANTS TO CHECK IT OUT AND ASKS FOR PERMISSION TO DO SO.  I DO NOT KNOW IF HE IS CONNECTED WITH THE OTHER TWO FELLOWS AT THE SAME COMPANY OR IS JUST TRYING TO TRICK ME INTO SOMETHING. BUT, THAT'S ANOTHER STORY.

I HAVE WRITTEN PROOF BY THE TWO ABOVE-MENTIONED FELLOWS THAT THEY WERE THE ONES WHO WORKED ON MY COMPUTER. HOWEVER, WHAT THEY TOLD ME THIS A.M. SOUNDS FISHY TO ME.  HERE IS WHAT ONE OF THE TWO FELLOWS SAID:

"IS THIS SO AND SO?"  I REPLIED THAT IT WAS.  HE IDENTIFIED HIMSELF AND SAID THAT THEIR COMPANY IS  GOING OUT OF BUSINESS  AND THAT BECAUSE OF THAT THEY WANTED TO REFUND MY MONEY THAT I HAD PAID THEM TO FIX MY COMPUTER.  HE SAID THAT IF I OPENED UP MY COMPUTER THAT HE WOULD PROVIDE THE FORM.  I TOLD HIM THAT THAT DIDN'T SOUND RIGHT TO ME.  HE SAID OK AND HUNG UP.

i WOULD SAY THAT IT'S BETTER NOT TO ANSWER YOUR TELEPONE THAT SHOWS A QUESTIONABLE I.D. ON ITS WINDOW.  IF YOU NEED SOMETHING, YOU CALL AND YOU BE THE NEGOTIATOR AND AGRESSOR - IT'S YOUR MONEY!

1/16/15 - MOST UNWANTED CALLS ARE THOSE OF CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTORS AND SIMILAR WORKERS, SOME CLAIMING TO HAVE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WHEN ALL THAT INSPIRED THEM TO JOIN THE RANKS OF THE UNEMPLOYED WAS OUR TERRIBLE ECONOMY.  EVERYONE HAD TO RE-INVENT HIMSELF.  IT HAS BEEN A COMBINATION OF LIES, BEG, OR STEAL AND MANY INNOCENT PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED FROM IT.

2/12/15 -  THE SAME UNBALANCED MALE THAT CALLED ON 6/2/14 ABOVE CALLED TODAY AND LEFT A MESSAGE ON OUR ANSWERING MACHINE.  SAID HE HAD A WARRANT FOR MY ARREST.  I RECOGNIZED HIS ACCENT AND THIS TIME HE GAVE HIS TELEPHONE NUMBER AS (347) 434-5396. THE RECORDING TO THIS PHONE NUMBER ANSWERS AS THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE BUT VERY QUICKLY AND WANTS ME TO LEAVE MY NAME. IT MAY BE THEIR TRUE PHONE NUMBER AND YET IT MIGHT NOT BE AND I DON'T INTEND TO WASTE MY TIME ON .  THE AREA CODE IS IN NEW YORK AND COVERS STATEN ISLAND, BRONX, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK CITY, QUEENS, MARBLE HILL AND SURROUNDING VICINITIES.
