If your caller ID says you’re receiving a call from (202) 609-7070, don’t answer the phone.
No, this isn’t a ghost story. No one will tell you that you have “five days left” or that the calls are coming from inside the house. But the truth could be even scarier.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, calls from that number are being made by someone impersonating an IRS agent who demands payment for a tax lien that doesn’t exist.
Mad World News cited a WSTU report that described the heavily-accented fake agent as demanding money immediately. Those who refuse to pay are threatened with arrest.

The United Arab Emirates has officially designated 83 groups as terrorist organizations, including two based in the U.S., the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society.
UAE’s cabinet made the announcement following a meeting on Saturday.
Other groups designated as terrorists include al-Qaida, al Nusra, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood.
CAIR’s designation is interesting given its high profile here in the U.S.
The group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2007. Leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were found guilty of aiding Hamas, which the U.S. has designated as a terrorist organization.
