Hi All,

I live in Nova Scotia Canada and have accounts set up with wagerweb and 5dimes and have funded these account through Western Union. I got a call from the IRS in Texas saying that I owe taxes. Has anyone heard of this?

Any advice would be appreciated.

The IRS does not call anyone.  They do their work via the mail.

f you receive a phone call, fax or letter in the mail from an individual claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect they are not an IRS employee, contact the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to determine if the IRS has a legitimate need to contact you. Report any bogus correspondence.

So you live in Canada and.supposedly get a call from a US govt agency telling you that you owe the US govt tax dollars ( even though you are not a citizen ) ?........... Then you come to the conclusion that this is because you have accounts with two sportsbooks that are located in Costa Rica ? Why not just send the IRS a blank cheque , this kind of stupidity deserves to cost you money.

And as if thats not crazy enough..........then, a Covers mod one ups the madness by telling you to contact Lou who " specializes " in this sort of thing ? WTF ? LOL

This thread cant possibly be for real ? Can it ?

He didn't come to any "conclusion". Ignorance>>> arrogance + ignorance

THE IRS WILL NOT CALL YOU UNLESS THEY NOTIFY YOU FIRST BY REGULAR MAIL AND SET UP A TIME TO CALL. AND THEN THEY WON'T CALL. SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE.
