When Scams Get Scarier— IRS Impersonator Sends Police to Victim’s House

When a family in Arlington, Texas decided not to do what an IRS scam caller demanded of them, they received a frightening visit from the local police.

Right around dinnertime on April 20th, 2018, an IRS impersonator asked for $5,000, supposedly to pay a tax debt. The family was not convinced, and the conversation apparently turned into a heated yelling match between the scammer and the victim on the other end. Finally, the criminal threatened to send police to the family’s home if they refused to pay up.

A few minutes later, the scammer placed an “emergency call” to Arlington police from a hidden number. He informed them that there had been a shooting at the Arlington residence he had previously attempted to scam and that the shooter was still at large. Police responded immediately by sending 15 squad cars to the home.

The shocked, confused family members were ordered to leave the house with their hands in the air. After speaking with the victims and finding no evidence of a shooting, investigators determined that the whole event occurred because of a hoax known as “swatting”.

According to dictionary.com, “swatting” is the action or practice of making a prank call to emergency services in an attempt to bring about the dispatch of a large number of armed police officers to a particular address.

Although no one was harmed in this particular case, swatting calls have had deadly consequences before. According to a Dallas News report, Police Lt. Christopher Cook said that innocent people have been shot because of swatting calls.

The reason for this is that some prank victims have reacted out of fear and confusion and have ended up refusing police orders. In those cases, police have had to employ forced entry methods, endangering everyone involved.

“Luckily, no one was injured during this incident but it was very traumatic for those involved,” Cook said in a written statement to Dallas News.

Unfortunately, police have not yet found the perpetrator of the swatting call. In the meantime, they are warning everyone not to answer scam calls and to avoid holding conversations with scammers, as it can be quite dangerous. The best way to avoid such situations is to install a call blocker for your landline or install a call-blocking app on your cell phone.

Could Telemarketers Owe You Money? Here’s How to Cash In

Sound too good to be true? Many people don’t believe that they could actually GET PAID for getting spam calls, but if you received a call from Dish Network in 2010 or 2011, you could get awarded $1,200 per call.

A $61 million class action lawsuit

A recent lawsuit against Dish Network found them guilty of placing about 51,000 calls in violation of the Do Not Call Registry. The punishment for that crime? Dish Network was required to shell out $400 per call. However, that number became $1,200 per call when a judge later found that the TV company had “willfully and knowingly violated” the law.

How did Dish Network respond? They refuted all claims, of course, placing blame on an outside contractor, which has been shut down since the class action lawsuit began. A representative for the company told CBS News, “these calls violated Dish’s express instructions to the contractor.” They are now appealing the suit.

Not a Scam

Now, here’s the strangest part of all: since so many people are used to getting frequent spam calls, most have assumed that the $1,200 settlement was just another scam! John W. Barrett, an attorney who worked on the suit, made plenty of calls to people who could be eligible for a payout, but the large majority were extremely skeptical. "Talking to them firsthand, I learned that they thought that we were, A, telemarketers, or B, trying to scam them,” Barrett said.

Deborah Turner, a Chicago banker, got at least 15 calls from Dish Network during 2010 and 2011, pestering her to switch her TV service. When Barrett called Deborah to tell her that she might be eligible to receive $18,000 for those annoying calls, Turner wanted to hang up like she had done so many times before. “‘Yeah, right’ is my first thought. Right,” she said in an interview with CBS.

How to Cash In

Not many people realize that they might be able to cash in on the settlement. Since most people have no record of the calls made to them in 2010 and 2011, they might miss out! A look-up link has been provided for those who want to check their eligibility. If you think you received calls from Dish Network but your number does not show up on the lawsuit registry, you would need to show proof that you received these calls in 2010 and 2011.

After a 120 percent increase in complaints to the FCC about Do Not Call List violators, government agencies are doing everything they can to crack down on spam calls. The lawsuit against Dish Network may be the first we’ve heard about for a while, but it certainly won’t be the last. Want to cash in on the next one? Sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry, and keep track of spam calls with a call blocking app. It’s easy and free, and just might result in some extra cash for you.
