The most recent #380-954-6980 & each time I call them back & inform them I know this is a scam & TO STOP calling me! It doesn't stop & this is getting ridiculous. The state there is 3 years of errors on my tax returns which I know that isn't how the system is set up because a letter has to be issued for each year there is an error not all lumped together for a total sum!

Received two texts from different numbers claiming to be the same person, Shelly Gates. They wanted to know how low I was willing to go on the price, and what specific address my item was located at. First text i gave the price and general vicinity of my location and didn't hear back. Two days later I received the exact same text from a different number, claiming to be the same person and it clicked that I was a scam attempt.
