Last night at 7 PM I got a phone call and when I picked it up it was a robocall from the IRS claiming that I had to pay emergency back taxes and I would be in hot water if I did not return their call.
It's a scam.
I also found out that an elderly person in my circle of influence has been sending money to a PAC and when I smelled a scam, I found out I was right. Every penny goes to line the pockets of the company's owners.
The Age of Information has brought out the vampires. Do support good causes with your money and respond to legitimate concerns, but WARN THE ELDERLY IN YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE. They are seen as nothing more than cash cows.
