Watch Out for Phone Scams from Area Code 202

Last week at home we received a few phone calls asking for Lee saying that he owes money to the Internal Revenue Service.  The caller ID indicated the  call came from area code 202 which is Washington, DC.  I suspected something fishy so I hung up.  The person called back immediately and left a voice mail message.  The same thing happened today at work.  My suggestion is that if you see a number on caller ID that is not familiar, let it go to the voice mail.  If it is important enough the person will leave a message.  If it is not a scam it could be another junk phone call.

Please check this web site from the Federal Trade Commission for some general information about scams.
