If you are old, as I am, you may remember Dave Holmes as the runner-up of MTV’s I Wanna Be A VJ contest in 1998. If you aren’t, then you may know him from his acting, his podcast A Drink With Dave, his FX gig, or his writing. If you don’t follow Holmes on Twitter, then you missed an epic story of how he trolled three telephone scam artists purporting to be from the IRS.

Our story begins with an exhausted Holmes returning to his car after a workout and listened to a voicemail left by a number in Maryland. That message? “This is a final notice from the IRS”. Holmes called the number back, just in case it was real.

Go. Follow this man. Found a cult in his honor. @DaveHolmes
