USA tax fraud telephone

Thousands of Americans nationwide have been targeted since August by a phone scam in which fraudsters claim to be from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and demand money for unpaid taxes, said the IRS' watchdog on Thursday.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) said it has received more than 20,000 complaints from people, including recent immigrants, nu skin about the scam.
Thousands of victims have collectively paid more than $1 million to the scammers, TIGTA said.
"This is the largest scam of its kind that we have ever seen," said J. Russell George, the head of TIGTA in a statement.
The fraudsters can manipulate victim's phone's caller ID so it displays the number of a local IRS office, TIGTA said.
In some cases, the fraudsters have also told victims parts of their Social Security numbers.
In cases where victims hung up, fraudsters have called back displaying a local police phone number on caller ID, TIGTA said nuskin hong kong.
Potential victims worried about their immigration status have been threatened with deportation, TIGTA said.
The scam has occurred in almost every state and the fraudsters have followed a uniform script, a senior TIGTA official said on a conference call with reporters.
The technology needed to manipulate caller ID displays is easily available to the public, the official said.
Major phone companies have been warned about the scam, as well as companies that provide voice-over-the-Internet call services, the official said.
Claudia Hill, a licensed tax preparer in Cupertino, California, said that in one week last month, four of her clients complained of such scam calls. Before this year,cardinal manchester none of her clients had previously mentioned phone scams, said Hill, who said she prepares about 1,000 tax returns a year.
"The IRS is not proactive enough in getting out in front of any of this mess," she said.

California the third grade students was found smoking

(Reuters) - Three third-graders were caught smoking marijuana in the boys' bathroom of their northern California elementary school last week in what the local police chief says marked the youngest pot bust he has ever encountered cardinal manchester.
The three boys - two 8-year-olds and one 9-year-old - were caught last Thursday by another student, who informed school administrators, who in turn alerted local law enforcement, said Sonora Police Chief Mark Stinson.
Police officers detained the youngsters for questioning, then released them to their parents, Stinson said.
The police chief of Sonora, a picturesque "Gold Country" town in the Sierra foothills about 130 miles east of San Francisco, said the youngest person he previously knew of being busted for smoking pot was about 10 years of age.
A pipe and a very small amount of marijuana were seized in last Thursday's incident, he said, adding that the boys seemed to have had little smoking experience and did not appear to be under the influence when confronted.
Stinson declined to comment on anything the boys said, or on the possible origins of the pot, except to say that "it came from several sources."
He said the incident will remain under investigation to determine whether the boys could be considered criminally culpable. Under California law nu skin, no one under 12 is usually charged with a crime, but the boys could be subject to juvenile justice proceedings.
"The first step is - we have to determine whether they knew right from wrong," he told Reuters.
The superintendent of the local school district, Leigh Shampain, declined to comment on any details of the case but confirmed that students had been caught smoking marijuana in the school restroom last week.
Both he and the police chief said the case underscores concerns that legalizing marijuana for recreational use by adults in California would make it easier for minors to gain access to pot in the future.
Said Stinson, "It's something to think about."
California in 1996 became the first of 20 U.S. states to allow marijuana use for medical purposes, and a Field Poll in December found that 55 percent of registered voters supported expanding legalization to recreational use g-suite cardinal manchester.
Colorado and Washington state approved ballot measures doing just that in November 2012. The last time such a proposal was put to California voters, in 2010, it was defeated.

Opposition calls in flight

The poll released Wednesday finds that 48 percent of Americans oppose allowing cellphones to be used for voice calls while flying.
WASHINGTON — As federal regulators consider removing a decades-old prohibition on making phone calls on planes, a majority of Americans who fly oppose such a change hong kong massage, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds.
The Federal Communications Commission will officially start the debate Thursday, holding the first of several meetings to review the agency's 22-year-old ban. New FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has called the current rules "outdated and restrictive."
Technology has advanced to the point where in-flight calls — relayed first through a special system on planes — won't overload cell towers on the ground. As a result, Wheeler has said, there's no reason the government should prohibit in-flight calls. The FCC proposal comes weeks after the Federal Aviation Administration lifted its ban on using personal electronic devices such as iPads and Kindles below 10,000 feet, saying they don't interfere with cockpit instruments.
Just because technology has advanced, it doesn't mean that etiquette has. Many fliers fear their fellow passengers will subject them to long-winded conversations impossible to avoid at 35,000 feet.
The Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday finds that 48 percent of Americans oppose allowing cellphones to be used for voice calls while flying; just 19 percent support it. Another 30 percent are neutral.
Among those who fly, opposition is stronger. Looking just at Americans who have taken more than one flight in the past year, 59 percent are against allowing calls on planes. That number grows to 78 percent among those who've taken four or more flights.
Interestingly, you can count Wheeler in the opposition. "We understand that many passengers would prefer that voice calls not be made on airplanes. I feel that way myself," he said in a Nov. 22 statement.
The chairman went on to say that his intention is for the airlines — not the government — to make the decision whether or not to allow calls.
Delta Air Lines is the only airline to explicitly state that it won't allow voice calls. Delta says years of feedback from customers show "the overwhelming sentiment" is to keep the ban in place. American Airlines, United Airlines and JetBlue Airways all plan to study the issue and listen to feedback from passengers and crew.
The nation's largest flight attendant union opposes a change, saying cellphone use could lead to fights between passengers.
Most Middle East airlines and a few in Asia and Europe already allow voice calls on planes.
Before the FCC commissioners can even meet Thursday afternoon g-suite cardinal, they must go to Capitol Hill to answer questions about the change.
House Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) has called all five commissioners to a 10 a.m. hearing on the matter.
Walden said Wednesday that "allowing cellphones on planes sounds like the premise of a new reality show: 'Cage Fighting at 30,000 Feet.'"
Separately, House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) plans to introduce a bill prohibiting such calls.
"If passengers are going to be forced to listen to the gossip in the aisle seat, it's going to make for a very long flight," Shuster said in a statement.
In contrast to the negative sentiment about phone calls, many take a favorable view of the lifting of the ban on personal electronic devices. The poll shows that 43 percent of Americans support the FAA's move, while 19 percent oppose it. Another 37 percent are neutral. Among frequent fliers, support rises to 69 percent.
The AP-GfK Poll was conducted Dec. 5-9, 2013 using KnowledgePanel, GfK's probability-based online panel. For results based on all 1,367 adults, the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. It is 5.4 points for results among 560 people who have taken at least one flight in the last year.
KnowledgePanel is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. Respondents were first selected randomly using phone or mail survey methods, Fashion and Textiles Hons and later completed this survey online. People selected for KnowledgePanel who didn't otherwise have Internet access were provided with access at no cost to them.

Flood relief

A STUNNING STRIKE by Anto Flood salvaged a point for league champions St Patrick’s Athletic on a night of merriment at Richmond Park.
Derry City were more than happy to play the role of party-poopers in Dublin as Barry McNamee hit the target just after the half hour mark otterbox iPhone 5/5S case. The Candystripes, who have European ambitions and a fourth place finish in sight, took a 1 — 0 lead into the break but the home side rallied to claim a deserved point.
Killian Brennan and substitute John Russell went close but Flood, sprung from the bench on 65 minutes, made a telling impact to ensure the spoils were shared. The midfielder let fly from 20 yards out Casing Otterbox Commuter, as play ticked into the final 10 minutes, and his effort dipped in. The game ended 1 — 1 and the trophy-lifting celebrations began.
Bray Wanderers defeated Bohemians 1 — 0 at Dalymount Park to condemn Shelbourne to relegation. Marty Waters struck with 15 minutes to play to give his side a crucial win. Bray could yet overtake UCD and avoid a promotion/relegation match against either Mervue or Longford Town. The Galwegians won the first leg of their promotion playoff 1 — 0 at Fahy’s Field this evening.
Dundalk are close to securing second spot after thrashing Cork City 4 — 0. Richie Towell opened the scoring with a cracking strike before Pat Hoban, John Kavanagh [own goal] and John Dillon added to Cork’s misery OtterBox Defender Series.
Shamrock Rovers’ hopes of securing fourth and getting into Europe next season were aided by a 4 — 1 win over UCD. Shane Robinson and Gary McCabe [penalty] put Rovers in command at half-time. Robbie Benson gave the Students hope of snatching a crucial point but McCabe and Thomas Stewart hit the target for the visitors in the space of three minutes.

The irresistible Aguero

A MASTERFUL PERFORMANCE from Sergio Aguero saw Manchester City win 3-1 at West Ham United on Saturday to claim their first away victory in the Premier League this season.
The Argentina forward scored either side of half-time before setting up David Silva for the clincher after Ricardo Vaz Te’s acrobatic overhead kick had given West Ham a glimmer of hope.
It was no more than the visitors deserved from a pulsating encounter in east London and moved last year’s runners-up into fourth spot.
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce was celebrating his 59th birthday and he used his programme notes to urge supporters not to expect too much, too soon from emerging midfielder Ravel Morrison.
The former Manchester United trainee took his place in the free-form 4-5-1 formation used to such devastating effect in last week’s 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur, with Mohamed Diame once again deployed as a ‘false nine’.
Perhaps with the trip to play CSKA Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday in mind, City manager Manuel Pellegrini changed the entire defence used in the last match against Everton, with Samir Nasri also coming in for James Milner.
But the Chilean did keep faith in the burgeoning strike partnership between Aguero and Alvaro Negredo and they almost found an early breakthrough in the seventh minute when Negredo just failed to control a precise chip into his path.
West Ham’s response was to surge up to the other end and Vaz Te was unlucky not to get to Mark Noble’s cross ahead of Joe Hart.
Nine minutes later, City took the lead as Negredo dummied a through ball from Fernandinho to fool James Tomkins and Winston Reid, allowing Aguero to take full advantage by slotting past Jussi Jaaskelainen.
The home side had their goalkeeper to thank for keeping them in the game after that as he produced two saves to deny Aguero his second goal.
With Morrison pulling the strings, West Ham looked dangerous on the break and almost found a way through when Razvan Rat’s teasing cross was hacked clear by Matija Nastasic.
A moment of madness from the usually impeccable Reid then nearly gifted City a second before the break when he passed straight to Silva, but Jaaskelainen did well to keep out Yaya Toure’s curling effort.
The visitors did not have to wait long to double their lead after half-time, however.
Some more slack marking from Vaz Te allowed Aguero space to show superb technique to head in Silva’s left-wing free-kick in the 51st minute. Far from give up the ghost, that goal seemed to inspire West Ham. Diame was denied by a sharp save from Hart before a brilliant overhead kick from Vaz Te pulled a goal back when City failed to clear a cross.
City kept pouring forward and Negredo could not believe his luck when his effort cannoned back off the crossbar.
Jaaskelainen then produced yet more heroics to keep his side in the match when he denied Aguero his hat-trick before saving again from substitute Aleksandar Kolarov.
Allardyce threw on Matt Jarvis for a visibly disappointed Vaz Te, but despite finding space down the flanks, too often there was no one on the end of their final balls into the box. City left Aguero as their sole striker and looked to play on the break, and it was another piece of sublime skill from the Argentine that finally settled matters 10 minutes from time.
Instead of shooting when he found space on the edge of the box, a glorious backheel into the path of the onrushing Silva allowed the Spaniard the opportunity to curl an exquisite shot into the net to complete a satisfying afternoon for the visitors.

New York town meeting

The case before the court involves prayers said at the start of town council meetings in Greece, N.Y., outside of Rochester.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is wrestling with the appropriate role for religion in government in a case involving prayers at the start of a New York town's council meetings g-suite cardinal manchester.
The justices engaged in a lively give-and-take Wednesday that highlighted the sensitive nature of offering religious invocations in public proceedings that don't appeal to everyone and of governments' efforts to police the practice.
The court is weighing a federal appeals court ruling that said the Rochester suburb of Greece, N.Y., violated the Constitution because nearly every prayer in an 11-year span was overtly Christian.
The tenor of the argument indicated the justices would not agree with the appellate ruling. But it was not clear what decision they might come to instead.
Justice Elena Kagan summed up the difficult task before the court when she noted that some people believe that "every time the court gets involved, things get worse instead of better."
Greece is being backed by the Obama administration and many social and religious conservative groups in arguing that the court settled this issue 30 years ago when it held that an openingprayer is part of the nation's fabric and not a violation of the First Amendment. Some of those groups want the court to go further and get rid of legal rules that tend to rein in religious expression in the public sphere.
On the other side are the two town residents who sued over the prayers and the liberal interest groups that support them. Greece residents Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens say they and others who attend the meetings are a captive audience and should not be subjected to sectarianprayers.
At its broadest, the outcome could extend well beyond prayer and also affect holiday displays, aid to religious schools, Ten Commandments markers and memorial crosses g-suite in oldham. More narrowly, the case could serve as a test of the viability of the decision in Marsh v. Chambers, the 1983 case that saidprayer in the Nebraska Legislature did not violate the First Amendment's clause barring laws "respecting an establishment of religion," known as the Establishment Clause.
The potentially decisive vote in the case belongs to Justice Anthony Kennedy, who did not seem satisfied with arguments made by lawyers for Greece and the administration on one side and for the Greece residents on the other.
On the one hand, Kennedy said he did not like the thought that government officials or judges would examine the content of the prayers to make sure they are not sectarian. "That involves the state very heavily in the censorship of prayers," Kennedy said.
On the other hand, he objected to the reliance by the town and the administration on the decision in Marsh.
All the while, Justice Stephen Breyer was trying out potential outcomes that recognized both the tradition of prayer and the rights of religious minorities and non-believers. "If all that was left in the case were questions of making a good-faith effort to include others, would you object to doing it?" Breyer asked Thomas Hungar, the Washington, D.C., lawyer who is representing the town.
Hungar said he did not know, but asserted that the town already has engaged in the outreach Breyer described.
In Greece, every meeting was opened with a Christian-oriented invocation from 1999 through 2007, and again from January 2009 through June 2010. In 2008, after Galloway and Stephens complained, four of 12 meetings were opened by non-Christians, including a Jewish layman, a Wiccan priestess and the chairman of the local Baha'i congregation.
The two residents filed suit and a trial court ruled in the town's favor, g-suite cardinal finding that the town did not intentionally exclude non-Christians. It also said that the content of the prayer was not an issue because there was no desire to proselytize or demean other faiths.
But a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that even with the highcourt's 1983 ruling, the practice of having one Christian prayer after another amounted to the town's endorsement of Christianity.
A decision is expected by late June.
