No, I haven't received any such phone call. Frankly, I'm really too busy personally and professionally to take much of my time away for the nastiness, pettiness, and unprofessionalism I keep hearing about, or witnessing myself.

For the record, IGF has been an actual business since October of 2006, filed with the state, paying quarterly taxes, professional CPA, filed as LLC with DBAs, etc., etc. biggrin.gif I've been making soap for a very long time now (15+ years) and sold as a crafter for a long time before making the jump almost two years ago to a real full time business.

I think it's time for people to concentrate on their own businesses, doing what is right by their customers, and running an ethical business. Stay out of the ugliness, don't even give it any time if at all possible.

I didn't get a call, but I find that strange that multiple people are getting called. Did you trace the number?

I really wonder why this person is doing this... other than just for entertainment value... some people don't have anything better to do!

As long as you have all your proper legal documents, I wouldn't even give it a second thought. But that is just me.

Gotcha all!!!
Lighten up folks!!!!!
The troll was an effort to get folks to laugh a little.
Not take things so seriously, when people genuinely do there best every day to do the right thing by everybody in everyway possible, they truly have nothing to worry about.

The troll could not even play with folks for all the suspician on the board.
You can not even have fun on here anymore.

There are lots of ways to use this board, share information, discuss local and world events.
But time and time again the entertainment comes from drama, and hurting of others.

I am retiring the troll, it is obvious that most folks don't like it want it or need it.

Have a nice day, thank you to those that played along!!

I actually think these calls are aimed at hurting pcom more than anything else.

Whomever is doing it is simply stating a pretty well-known fact ... that if you are out there making money and don't have your ducks in a row with the tax man ... there are folks who may turn you in. Duh? Sure these folks exist so all the caller is doing is trying to make those who've gone and created a business scared to do business. To the business person called,

Scared to do business where?

on Pcom.

Who is this anonymous caller hurting?

He or she is raising the anxiety of those whom they call if they're either not on top of their business or just so new to business that they don't know all the things one has to do but if they're not personally threatening to be the tattle tale ... and I'm not aware of anyone who is making it their business to call the state ... all they are doing is trying to hurt pcom's business relationships.

And by extension, if it continues unabated it will hurt everyone's business as such efforts to raise paranoia and fear make people more and more distrustful of those whom they deal.

pubby

PS: I just got a call that suggested that the anonymous caller is identifying and accusing a specific person of being the one to call and report 'things' to the authorities. That identity was shared with me and I can say with almost absolute assurance that the person mentioned as the perp is not calling the state on anyone. The allegations of reports and reporting to the state and/or IRS are absolutely false. Instead, if any person is being mentioned as the stool pigeon then the this is nothing more than a asshat effort to label another person a tattletale and intentionally hurt their business.

Let me be so bold as to say that if you get such a call, tell the person to kiss your butt and go to hell.

There really is a special place in hell for pot stirrers like this and frankly, the only way to stop it is to jump back on them and tell them where to stick their bullcheese.

I figure it will take about three calls where they're cussed out for the crapola to cease.

Seriously, this is bull.
