I got this call today that really scared me. I'm not an idiot, but I am prone to panic. I imagine this was most likely a scam, but I can't really figure out what the angle would be. I got home today to a message on my machine from a woman with a heavy accent. She said she was from the dept of finance (or something like that) and to call her back ASAP. She referred to me by my first and last name. I got scared and called back. The area code was Los Angeles, BTW. A man answered the phone saying "dept of finance." I asked him why I had gotten a call and he used a lot of official sounding rhetoric that, honestly, I couldn't fully follow - partly because he too had a heavy accent. He told me that I would need to contact an attorney because there was an issue with my 2010 tax return. He said that they tried to deliver a subpoena to my house, but I didn't answer the door, so they thought I might be evading arrest and I could be facing 6 months in prison. I told my husband and he got on the phone and started asking questions and was either disconnected or the guy hung up. What do you think? I'm pretty shaken.
