Finally, the IRS does something useful

Huge phone scam targeting Americans leads to 700 being detained in India

This is what happens when thousands of people report these phone calls to the IRS. Like I did.  \o/

In case you’ve never gotten one of these calls, what happens is this:  Someone calls posing as an IRS agent or a police officer, claiming that you’re being sued for non-payment, or being charged with not paying.  I’ve gotten two of these calls–they left voicemail–and reported each of them because they were obvious bullshit.  Posing as a cop is a felony.  Posing as a federal agent is a BIG felony.  Finally, they’ve been caught.  Now the question will be who actually gets to go to jail.
