This call comes at all times during the day or night. Usually, a women speaks and if she doesn't think she's getting anywhere a man calls back. They both speak with a heavy accent, either, Afican or East Indian. They want bank information and or money to pay taxes on a lottery they say has been won. This morning I recieved the call a 6:00 AM and the woman identified herself as someone from the IRS. They have been harrassing my mother, who is 88 yrs old, also. She, unfortunately, has been convinced of their authenticity and has given her info over the phone. We have had to close accounts because of this. Too, bad there isn't more that can be done to protect our elderly.
