Body of content:
Every year, tons of innocent people are scammed out of thousands of dollars by scammers claiming to be from the IRS. They’ll leave threatening voicemails, stating that the person could be arrested if they don’t call back and pay the taxes they owe! Some people get scared into paying up and can lose out on tons of money that can’t be recovered. I decided to prank call a group of these scammers in India to see just how heartless they really are!
Calling as Buk Lau, I pretended to be a distraught parent overwhelmed by the idea of having to pay thousands in owed taxes when my child with cancer is going through expensive chemotherapy treatments. I thought explaining the amount of money going into the kid’s treatment would break these scam artists, but I was wrong! They pretended to “help” me by only asking for $1,000 up front.
These scammers are absolutely unbelievable! Would you like to see another IRS scam prank? What crazy scenarios should I pull on them next time? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Guy: Okay, not an issue, I will explain it to you each and everything, but first of all, do you have this amount with you ($7,500)?
Guy: To resolve the matter?
Pranker: Yeah, but I have one problem, you know, my son actually, m-, my son right now, he's very sick, he in the hospital he have-
Pranker: a CANCER right now, so he's-, he's very SICK and I don't have a very good insurance so, unfortunately every day, we're paying-
Pranker: like three hundred, three hundred fifty dollar for his care there in the hospital. So, I just wondering, you know, I can-
Pranker: PAY this money because I don't want to go to jail, he be very HEART BROKEN, if he-, because everyday I try to go visit him-
Pranker: after work, you know, he's [sniffle], he's having a hard time right now, but I just wondering, can you do anything for me-
Pranker: on the price, just wondering, you know, if-, if it's possible, to-, to lower the fee for me a little bit, because, you know-
Pranker: seventy five hundred, that's a lot of money, you know, it's-, it's-, but most of my BANK ACCOUNT, you know?
Guy: Okay, what I can do to help you with that plight, we can put you on a Monthly Payment Plan, but eh-, in order to cancel your-
Guy: Arrest Warrant, in order to show that you are not trying to run away from the situation, you have to show the positive intention to us.
Pranker: Oh, I have the money and if I have to, I'll pay for it, I'm just a little bit worried, because, you know, they want to do the-
Pranker: Chemotherapy for my son and I think it's going to cost like four-five thousand for this procedure, you know? [Inhale] I just worry-
Pranker: you know? C-, can I do something small, just like fifty dollar to start?
Guy: Uh, the case has already been registered under your name and uh-, I don't think fifty dollars will cancel your arrest warrant-
Pranker: So w-, what do you-
Guy: But uh, I don't think it will resolve the problem.
Pranker: W-, w-, w-, how much do you recommend?
Guy: At least, you have to come with uh, a thousand dollars, so that I can go ahead and forward this issue to the courthouse, that, yes-
Guy: you are showing a positive intention-
Pranker: Yeah, but, I'm just wondering, you know, like, even though like my son Neelo, he's in the hospital, he's DYING right now, you know-
Pranker: like, don't you think the government will have sympathy about that? You know, he-, I-, he's-, he's actually DYING-
Guy: Yes, sir, I can understand your situation right now, we're trying to give you the option to resolve the matter. Before we go ahead-
Guy: and proceed with the legal procedure.
Pranker: Yeah, yeah, I understand, you know, and I-, I thank you for trying to help me and being patient with me, you know? Just again, I-
Pranker: just uh-, I'm not trying to be difficult you know, I don't want TROUBLE really, the-, the-, the last thing I want is TROUBLE.
Pranker: But my son, right now, you know, he's in the HOSPITAL, and, you know, he's-, everyday I see him he look like he drift away-
Pranker: MORE and MORE, you know? It make me very UPSET, you know? It's MY SON, you know, I hate to see HIS PAIN, you know? I wish I can-
Pranker: take his pain myself, so I just asking you, right, even though, my son is in the HOSPITAL DYING right now, like yeah-, I-, I have to pay it, right?
Guy: Yes, I'm so sorry, I'm just the apart of the system and believe me, I'm doing MY JOB as a member of "Internal Revenue Service".
Pranker: I need to send ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR, right? I can do that, I need to send one thousand, right?
Guy: Let me just go ahead and uh-, forward this issue to the courthouse and see what can be worked out, just hold on a moment, let me-
Guy: forward this case and I'll come back to you with information, okay?
Pranker: Okay, okay, alright.
