    Received from an anonymous user via email:

    "I did not get an e-mail but I did get a phone call from number 415-363-0184. The caller said that she was Officer Nikki Johnson from the office of the Internal Revenue. She informed me that I had to go to court of get arrested if I did not pay what I owed the Internal Revenue Office.

    I asked her what she was talking about because that I know I owe money to the IRS but that I has asked to make payments and was waiting to hear from them. Shen then said that they had already tried to deliver two letters to me and that I had not responded so that if I did not pay it now I would get arrested. I then asked her what address did they try to deliver the letters and she responded by asking me for my address, I then told her that she should know what address they delivered it to. She then told me that she could prove that they delivered it because she had a picture of my front porch.

    I told her that I had not received any letters from the IRS. She then got a little frustrated and said that they had not gotten any response so that I would have to got to court or pay the money. I then asked her where and when I should show up for court and then she ignored my question and said that I should be at my home address because she was going to send someone to arrest me. I then hung up on her.

    There has been a message on my phone from the same woman several times after that saying exactly the same thing like it is a recording of some sort urging me to call back or actions will be taken against me. I have not returned any more call."
