Wow! Anyone who owes the IRS might be intimidated or a very senior citizen, but what on earth were they thinking??

When I receive scam phone calls, I casually mention I am retired law enforcement (not true) and they hang up.

Glad I have caller ID. .Plus they keep telling us that the IRS doesn't call and ask for money on the phone.
