My husband received a call at 1307 from [protected]. It came up on caller ID as District of Columbia. The representative stated they were from the IRS and wanted to give us $9, 000.00 but needed our checking or credit card account numbers. Jerry told them he would rather have a check. The representative said the could not do that. He hung up. I contacted the Volusia County Sheriff's Office non-emergency number. I was aware that since no money ever exchanged hands there was no actual crime committed but it still needed to be reported. I was given the FL Fraud Line of [protected]. Initially I wanted to talk to someone after 10 minutes of being cycled through the "hold messages" I was disconnected. Rather than go through that ridiculous process I opted to complete this. Thank you for providing this. Perhaps you could do a PSA and let people know this is a much better process.
