Got this one this morning. I love some of the syntax: :hyst:

"Our documents clearly show that you have past due total"
"If you will not give us a call instantly,"
"You are witnessing this particular alert because"
"visit your Internal revenue services user account to momentarily deactivate or completely eliminate these kinds of signals"
"Please don't Write back."
"The service plan is delivered to you absolutely free by the Irs.gov"

And imagine this, I couldn't find any such address in Washington, DC. :-D

Why not just put hundred dollar bills in an envelope and send it to a post office box?

You're on the right track, but hundred dollar bills will be too small. :fg:

In that case I’ll take any smaller unmarked bills in large quantities, sent at regular intervals.

Sorry Dave for your troubles ;) I can send you something. Your choice: a wine bottle full of pennies or I may have some Bitcoin laying around somewhere. :mrgreen:

I think the pennies would be a wiser choice.

OK I don't normally do this but here is my credit card number: 0123456789, I live in Anytown, USA.

And I agree it is sad that wolves lay in wait to take advantage of some unsuspecting person.
