Identity Scams and Collections

So, a lot of the problems that we've been having recently are with some of these identity thefts scams where people will make unsolicited phone calls to individuals and say, "We are with the State of California" or in some cases, "We are with the IRS and we have a warrant out for your arrest." State collection agents don't do that. What I tell my clients when I get a panic phone call that's just saying, "You told me that you were supposed to represent me" is I tell them that, "If they really want to come out an arrest you, they don't give you the common courtesy of giving you a phone call, where ins what they do instead is they send the guys with windbreakers and handcuffs to your door and just go ahead and pick you up.
