I got an email from an Uganda princess that she wanted to send me a bunch of money because I am a good fellow. Just now, “Helen” from the IRS called and warned me that I am in deep Kim Chi if I don’t call her back immediately! And just when happy days seemed here at last.:)

Tell the princess to hold on to the $$ and you’ll come pick it up.
Call Helen and tell her you are asserting your rights under the 5th amendment.

Better yet, tell the princess to send the money to “Helen”.

Better yet have the princess send the money to me to help you avert any additional tax obligation :))

I was getting those IRS calls too! All of them with an foreign accent, and names like Jason Clark and Ron Smith. When I was talking once to them, I asked to speak to someone who spoke English, and they transferred me to another guy with the same accent. I called their bluff and told them they should be ashamed, he went on to say they were dispatching the police to my house. I am still waiting….

Make sure that Helen does not talk to the princess. If she knows that you are a tax cheater, she might not think that you are such a good fellow.

I told ‘em that I got their name, phone number and address, and if they ever call again I would find them and rip their face off. Haven’t heard back since. Maybe I was to harsh?

when I get calls like that, I always ask them if they are muslims. The last thing I hear is a CLICK.

LOL seen way to many of these….... But I did marry a Ukrainian Princess that seems to have worked out very well for me.
