A New PayPal Scam ..


A few minutes ago I opened my e-mail and saw this notice that appeared to have come from PayPal.

scam

 

My first thought was …so what I don’t purchase from the EU anyway. My Second thought was this is obviously a new phishing scam.

How can I tell it’s a SCAM.
It starts with Dear,    <NO NAME> …Paypal knows my name.

Even though it instructs me to log into my PayPal account, it conveniently provided a link for me. However, my reader knows how to check if a link is valid.  Simply hover your mouse pointer over the link at look at what appears in the lower left corner of the screen. The link is not PayPal. So obviously they want to get my PayPal credentials..

What Should I Do?

  1. DELETE THE E_MAIL!
  2. The best way to handle a situation like this is to visit the PayPal website directly. Don’t click a link in an email message, even if you’re certain it really did come from PayPal. If you go to the paypal.com website and sign in to your account, you’ll be able to see any issues that might be affecting your account.
  3. To secure your PayPal Account, Just head to the settings page on PayPal and click the notifications link. While you’re there, you should enable two-factor authentication if you haven’t.

A Few Tips To Help You Stay Safe


  • If someone knocks on the door that you were not expecting or are not comfortable stalkers10n-1-webtalking to, do not answer the door. Make sure they know you are still home and that it is not an empty house, so they don’t break in, however, tell them to leave and that if they don’t, you will call the police. There are lots of products on the market to allow you to see who is there, without opening your door, including fish-eye peepholes, to cameras.
  • Have clear areas, exterior lights and trimmed bushes around your house so that no one can hide outside.
  • Pay attention while walking in parking lots and out in public and try not to carry lots of things in your hands. This can make you an easy target.
  • Before you walk back to your car in public, have your keys and pepper spray out and ready, This way you aren’t making yourself an easy target as you search for them in your purse or pockets.
  • Appear confident and make eye contact with people in public as much as possible. People are less likely to attack you if it appears you will fight back.
  • Keep texting or using social media to a minimum when walking in public, multitasking can inhibit you from being aware of your surroundings.
  • Save the non-emergency police dispatch numbers in your  phone contacts where it is easily accessible.
  • If there is an emergency, call 911.

The IRS Scam Continues


I’ve written about this before on this blog.  This scam is alive and well. In fact just this TpyHkgJweek, I’ve received two calls this week.  One of them was from Canada, one from New York! It used to be that the call was from someone with a thick foreign dialect calling from New Mexico, and other places…now it’s a digital recording ..still using broken English.  They claim to be the Investigative Team of IRS, and assert there is a legal matter against me, and If I don’t call the local law enforcement is going to pick me up. It’s still so obvious to me that it’s a scam.  However, our goal is to warn you!

Numbers they have called from:
(If you have others ..let me know ..I’m keeping a running list as I get them)

  • (607) 542-3079             (646) 396-7418
  • (914) 401-5565             (607) 542-3893
  • (914) 401-5965             (607) 542-4652
  • (914) 512-5975             (518) 615-7980
  • (631) 604-0694             (929) 800-2683

So after many years of reporting, why are they still doing it.  Obviously many people are still falling for it. It’s phishing, with using fear as bait, to get someone to bite

You can go to the IRS Web Site to verify what I’m about to inform you about. (https://www.irs.gov/privacy-disclosure/report-phishing)

Also, See https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/scam-calls-and-emails-using-irs-as-bait-persist

The real IRS will NOT:

  • Call you to demand immediate payment.
  • The IRS will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail. (this includes Robo Calls)
  • Demand tax payment and not allow you to question or appeal the amount you owe.
  • Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For example, demand that you pay with a prepaid debit card. (using Green Dot, money grams or other).
  • Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
  • Threaten to bring in local police or other agencies to arrest you without paying.
  • Threaten you with a lawsuit. (They will serve you first)

If you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you do:

  • Contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. Use TIGTA’s “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” web page to report the incident.
  • You should also report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of your report.

If you think you may owe taxes:

  • Ask for a call back number and an employee badge number. (go to IRS.gov to call a local office)
  • Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS employees can help you.

In most cases, an IRS phishing scam is an unsolicited, bogus email that claims to come from the IRS. They often use fake refunds, phony tax bills, or threats of an audit. Some emails link to sham websites that look real.  The scammers’ goal is to lure victims to give up their personal and financial information. If they get what they’re after, they use it to steal a victim’s money and their identity.

If you get a ‘phishing’ email, the IRS offers this advice:

  • Don’t reply to the message.
  • Don’t give out your personal or financial information.
  • Forward the email to phishing@irs.gov. Then delete it.
  • Don’t open any attachments or click on any links. They may have malicious code that will infect your computer.

More information on how to report phishing or phone scams is available on IRS.gov.

What happens when you call

One day I decided to play along and called one of the numbers.  I, of course, pretended to be someone else.  If they can pretend to be the IRS, I can be someone else. You get connected to some type of call center, as there are LOTS of people on the phone … scamming people.  I got connected to a person who identified themselves as Agent Eva Green (foreign accent).  Badge # PP35759  and my case number assigned is U8CIA69Q04.  Apparently, I have made mistakes on my 2011-2016 Tax forms and according to section 101 (If you look it up its discusses death benefits..but I most people won’t look this up) – I owed $7,500 which included all kinds of fines, fees…etc.  Since there was sooo much noise I told her that I could not hear her…and really you can’t with all the noise.  So I was transferred to another person speaking with a foreign accent, he called himself Mike Olson Badge GS26052.  He wanted to verify my ID…I gave him my fake persona (I think I covered this in one of my posts).  He said the ID verified (Oh really?).  He said that I owed $3,424 which included the fees etc.  Notice how the amounts did not match.  Anyway, under section 101- they had the ability to have the local police come to arrest me, take me to Washington DC, cancel my driver’s license, take the money from my bank account, suspend my social security and other things.  I had two options to settle this in court or out of court and of course, had to hire a lawyer.  I told him I was a lawyer.  (If he can claim to be an IRS Agent, I can be a lawyer).  He said he would see me in court and hung up.

So if you get these calls…and have the time… have fun. Next time I’m gonna be politician.
