These people are ruthless and previously called my Mom at all hours of the night and day. They insulted her when she wouldn't provide some personal information. They have also attempted to create a rapport with the victim. We traced the first incident back to Nevada. This is clearly a criminal activity focused on taking your identity and hard earned savings. Even worse they are preying on the elderly.
The envelope was postmarked from Canada with the letterhead from Yonkers NY. The letter also stated you could contact the Internal Revenue Service at 1-514-651-7213. A backward search on this number shows it is a cell phone that belongs to Fido Solutions in Montreal Canada. Clearly the United States Government would not use a cell phone for services, particularly one from Canada!
Does anybody have an idea on how to turn this over to a Police Agency for action? I would like to see a sting operation set-up and try to protect more of our elderly citizens.
