Horrible Scam Alert

PEOPLE LISTEN UP AND PASS THIS ALONG PLEASE!  I’ve been told that this has been in the news in the past week, but please read and inform others.

Today I received a telephone call from a woman who said her name was June Smith and she was calling from the IRS.  In her message she said not to ignore the call. Ok, IRS, don’t ignore the call so I called back. When I called back she asked me if I had an attorney I said no, for what. She then informed me that I had recently been audited and now legal proceedings were happening against me for back taxes owed in the amount of $3900 and some change. Immediately I asked her what was she talking about and I told her that I had not received any documentation about any of this. She said that within the next hour the documents would be sent to the court and legal proceedings would begin. I’m still telling her that I don’t know what she’s talking about and I’ve never received any documents. She started some sort of countdown by saying within the next 50 minutes legal procedings would begin and what don’t I understand. She said I would be blacklisted for the next 5 years meaning, no drivers license, passport, credit cards, bank accounts, personal items, etc would all be inactive or seized. I’m constantly telling her that I don’t understand what she’s talking about and no one came to my house with any documents. She said someone came on October 11, 2014 and no one was home to sign for the documents. I said wait, it’s August; she said what; I said it’s August so no one could have come to my house on October 11, 2014 she hesitated and said on August 11, 2014. Okay, long story short I asked to speak to someone else because I didn’t understand her because if her accent, she asked what I don’t understand. I said I file joint returns with my husband, she said something else that I don’t remember and then hung up on me. By now I’m a nervous wreck and calling my husband in tears telling him to come home now. IT WAS/IS A SCAM! This number 202-506-9236.

I contacted the IRS and it’s been reported.


Conversations

So the other day I was at a local store standing in line waiting to pay for a few items.  There was a woman in front of me and when it was her turn she politely greeted the cashier and asked him how was his day going.  The cashier was so taken by the woman’s greeting that he thanked her for being so kind and told her that it really meant alot to him that she was so polite.  He went on to say how it is so difficult to work in retail because there are times when people are extremely rude and you can’t say anything to them because you have to be nice to them at all times.  I interjected by saying that I completely understand having worked in retail for several years and yes people can be very rude for no particular reason.  The woman then said that she has worked in the bio-medical field for 20 years and it’s no different, in fact it seems as though the more letters that someone has behind their name the worse they are.  I agreed with her whole heartedly.  Why do some people suddenly get a sense of superiority when they get one or more college degrees?

I would really love to read your thoughts about this.

 As always LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE!


Mind, Body & Spirit

Welcome!  I am so excited to have you join me for the Mind, Body and Spirit series.  This is something new for me and I feel deep down that this is going to beneficial to everyone who decides to follow this series.  I believe that women, myself included, need to take the time to honor all of who we are.  We need to come into a place of acceptance of ourselves and each other.  There needs to be more LOVE between us and less drama;  we need to take back our power and become the women that God created.  The series will begin with the Mind and how our thoughts impact behavior, feelings and our overall being.

So, get ready for some laughter, tears and growth!  Remember to LOVE always!
