Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
I got a phone call Friday for a caller claiming to be a deputy for the IRS saying I owed them money for filing my taxes incorrectly and they were going to freeze my bank account (I don’t think they would give you a warning).
They started getting very rude with me and threatened to get the police to go to my house. Ii had already figured out it was a scam as H&R block does them and pretty sure the IRS sends a letter first.
When you call the number back they give you it sounds like the first part of the IRS recording but not all of it so I called the IRS and it was the same but longer. The number they gave me was 844.240.3115. Could you please warn people please there are many scams out there?
