That's what I do. Momentary confusion, then they hang up and don't try calling back. I think it gets me on their "Don't call this nutcase" list.

Hey, did you give out my phone number? Just got a call from California saying this is the IRS and they are initiating a law suit against me and I need to call immediately. This scam has been around for quite a while, but first time I have received the call. Pretty annoying that there are so many fraudsters out there, and so many victims that do not have a clue.

Got that call from the "IRS" about 5 times in one month. Haven't been sued yet.
