Phone scam - don't be a victim

The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert today providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS.

The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert today providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS.
These callers may demand money or may say you have a refund due and try to trick you into sharing private information. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They may know a lot about you, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. If you don't answer, they often leave an "urgent" callback request.

The IRS reminds people that they can know pretty easily when a supposed IRS caller is a fake. Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam. The IRS will never:

1. Call you about taxes you owe without first mailing you an official notice.
2. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
3. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
4. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here's what you should do:
If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS workers can help you with a payment issue.
If you know you don't owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484 or at www.tigta.gov.
If you've been targeted by this scam, also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their "FTC Complaint Assistant" at FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.

Lost Visa Gift Card

By chance did anyone in the 4800 N Kostner run across a Visa Gift Card. I had just purchased as a gift for my Grandsons 8th birthday.

  • If you have the receipt of the purchase then you can ask the merchant for the issuing Bank's customer service phone#. Actually the phone number should be in the back of any Visa gift cards displayed at the store from where you bought it. Call them and ask them how to get a replacement card. Hopefully if someone found it then they may have not used up the balance. Good luck.

Found Kitten on 4900 Block of N. Kilpatrick

A very sweet and VERY chatty kitten has been coming around my house for the last few nights. She (or he) is really loving and very comfortable with people, after a brief "get to know you" stage. She's really thin and small, and I worry about her being out alone. She cries outside my door all night like she wants to come in. I'm really hoping I can find her home. Please let me know if you have any info!

Date Night

So rather than doing the same old "dinner and a movie" routine, I want to think outside the box for our future date nights. I figured our Everyblock community would be an awesome idea generator. So neighbors what good options for live music, comedy shows, other entertainment do we have here on the NW side? I am thinking we'll check out a performance at the Gift Theater and visit the new Sip and Paint. What else?

  • Susan Long-time Jeff Park resident

    One of the best dates my husband and I had (if you can get away overnight) was at the Fireside dinner theater in Ft. Atkinson, WI. It is about 2-1/2 hours away. They have a gourmet dinner, a little shopping, and then some of the best theater I've seen outside of downtown Chicago. Then you stay overnight (Johnson Creek is a good place). The hotel right by the property was NOT recommended the last time I went. I really like some of the suggestions above, too--they show great imagination!

  • There's always a night out bowling as well. If you feel neither of you is very good, that just adds to the fun, You're sure to have lots of laughs.

"It is not over yet," Garrido said, adding that he favors maintaining two lanes of travel in each direction along Milwaukee while expanding the white buffered bike-lane pavement markings between Lawrence and Elston by reducing the center turn lane.

Palmer School

We just settled an offer on a house in North Mayfair that is only a few blocks from Palmer School.We are considering keeping out kids at their current school, or changing their school to Palmer. I'm curious about how the community feels about their school. If you could share your thoughts and opinions, I would so appreciate it! Thank you.
