We recently received a phone call stating it was from the IRS and that we should immediately call Hedda Gray at 415-251-8730. Since I also have a head of gray, I was skeptical and called the California Consumer Affairs department of the Justice Department of Kamala Harris. A very pleasant lady named Kimberly called the number and informed us that it was indeed a scam.
This is a great example of the hundreds of services that we (as the government) provide to ourselves, and we provide them even to the folks who don’t understand very much and don’t want to pay for them, even though they often afford themselves of benefits when they need them. It’s all just a part of the Golden Rule, which far too many people ignore. Do unto (and for) others.
