Beware: IRS telephone scam

Thankfully I have not been called but know many in the DC area who have.
Here's the story:

http://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/IRS-Reiterates-Warning-of-Pervasive-Telephone-Scam

  • Julia Z-N Andersonville Dog Mama

    I got one of these calls. When I got my laughter under control I told him to( insert word meaning for making water)off! The idiot could barely speak english and had to repeat the word IRS repeatedly before I could figure out what he was saying. The IRS,as well as any other civic,state or federal entity will never call looking for info.

  • I got the same call but in a voicemail message, where they threatened me with legal action if I did not get back to them. I knew it was a scam and looked up the number and followed up some suggested links to report it to the FTC. I reported...

    I got the same call but in a voicemail message, where they threatened me with legal action if I did not get back to them. I knew it was a scam and looked up the number and followed up some suggested links to report it to the FTC. I reported the call to the FTC. Someone else on the FTC comments section they have for this particular IRS scam said the number was provided by a certain communications company. I wrote to the company on their website detailing the exact report language I had given to the FTC and they said I would no longer get calls from that number. It was a 202 DC area code.

Employment for high school students

I'm a high school teacher working closely with Juniors and Seniors this year (16-18 year olds) and am hoping to help them find after school jobs. Though we've only known each other for a little over two weeks, I've been incredibly impressed by the maturity of my students and the potential they have. Many of their families are in need of financial support, and these students are hoping to help (and hopefully develop skills and an employment history that will help them in the long run).

Could anyone advise of places that might be hiring this season or in the near future? I'd be happy to write detailed and honest recommendations on their behalf.

  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I'll look into the public library and Chicago parks. Also, thank you JeffHinkson, I'll ask for more information if any of my students are interested/qualified.

    If anything else comes up, please let me know.

Snow Removal

Does anyone know of a reliable snow removal service for a small 6 unit condo building?

  • My building is next to a very long alley, What is the situation for alleys so that my tenants get through without getting stuck. Do you know if we can we hire someone for alleys? I also notice, especially last year that the garbage truck had some problems. The sign in the front of my building was knocked over so that they could get through.

  • id recommend SGS. they are local rogers park guys and provide excellent service. they have several trucks and drivers so they are reliable and fair with their pricing.

Walking Dogs Off Leash in NW Edgewater Glen

There seems to be a little upsurge in this along/around Glenwood, Rosemont, and Wayne.
A neighbor mentioned that she's having difficulty walking her dog who is leash aggressive because they are often surprised by dogs trotting down the street half a block or so ahead of their owners. I haven't had this experience recently, but I usually try to walk my dog when other people aren't out with theirs because mine is a rescue who is terrified by strangers.

Thoughts? Observations?

  • Snappette Special Agent

    There are dog owners (not all... but IMHO too many do) that treat their four legged, furry freind, butt sniffing, poo eating, bad breathing, dog... as though they are children! God WTF is wrong with people! Leash the beasts and be considerate of the human race!

  • I posted in May about a particular dog owner I've had many problems with -- he walks one dog on leash but the other off leash. Does anybody know what recourse we have, especially if we don't have any identifying information about the lawbreaking dog owner? I've asked the NCA crossing guard about this, but she just said they've been yelling at him for years, to no avail. Who can we complain to about problem owners?

Paying it forward, $50 off Tuft and Needle Mattress

Hi everyone,

Just moved back to the neighborhood and bought a new foam mattress online from Tuft and Needle. They make them in California and don't use any flame retardant chemicals. It shipped for free, has a 30 day easy return policy (they actually donate the mattress) and I haven't slept so comfortably in years! I'm totally thrilled with the quality. And it wasn't very expensive!

Anyway, they have me a coupon for $50 off to share with friends so I just thought I'd share it unless anyone else was interested. :)

  • 60660Gal loves Edgewater,

    Mathieu..Thank you for your honesty..Its refreshing to hear someone be honest rather then say they are "paying it forward" These codes are all over coupons sites--maybe the are better posted there as EveryBlock prohibits advertising? People trying to rent out there apartments have been flagged--yet theres several of these coupon
