11:26 pm
king to give up the throne. >> that's a decision i have made. has been mine and mine alone. >> reporter: choosing love and a life with american divorcee wallace simpson over power. family, church, and country, did not approve. now a new british documentary called "spying on the royals" dives into a government plot to eavesdrop on the king and his lover. top-secret documents unsealed in 2013, after nearly 80 years, show the king was under surveillance, treated bilike an enemy spy. the prime minister himself asking mi5 to tap the wires at buckingh buckingham palace. >> to ask an intelligence agency to bug, tap, surveil the head of state is unordheard of.
11:27 pm
>> reporter: agents disguised as utility workers opened a phone exchange box tied to the palace, tapping the wires, and listening in. >> as far as we can see, mi5 creates almost a little unit within mi5 to keep this secret from the rest of mi5. >> reporter: it was that sensitive. the year, 1936. europe o the ed europe, on the edge of war. the prime minister, worried about edward. was he under wallace simpson's spell? was he cozying up to hitler and a rising far right in britain? could he force a coup? but in the end, the biggest bombshell? an intercepted call, telling his brother he'd take wallace over crown and country. and the rest is history. >> what a story, that's for sure. >> let's check in with sports right now. >> a look at the giants dramatic opening day. >> hey, guys, here in the nbc sports newsroom, the legend of

11:30 pm
last year, the giants led the majors with 30 blown saves in the regular season. then they blew another save in game 4 of the nlds against the cubs. so the front office went out and spent $62 million on a new closer, one of the best in the business, by the way. but unfortunately, the giants opened up their 2017 campaign just like they ended it last year, with a blown save. yeah, giants open up a four-game set in arizona against the diamondbacks. the story early on was madison bumgarner. he was stellar on the hill and was also a beast at the dish.

top five, bumgarner. adios, solo shot to left. put the giants up 2-zip. and guess what, folks. he was not done. in the seventh, bumgarner. what do you think he's gonna do? yeah, ridiculous. goes deep again. first pitcher in mlb history to hit two home runs on opening day. it was his 16th career homer, that's most all time by a giants pitcher. giants up 4-3 after that. bottom nine, giants up 5-4, mark melancon in to close, but oh, dear, daniel descalso hits the two-out rbi single, ties it up at five. later in the inning, uh-oh, scares one to right for the walk-off. giants lose 6-5. >> i was hoping the spot would come up again so he could get
11:32 pm
one more at-bat so he could go for three. big day, pitchers hits two homers and pitches the way he did, that's what makes the outcome tough. you should come away with a win. but give the other team credit sometimes and they come back on us. warriors/wizards. first quarter, steph curry just toying with gortat. nothing but net. he had four threes in the first quarter. check this out. in the third, curry drives. confusing the entire wizards team. that was magic. beautiful reverse lay-up. he finished with 42 points. warriors win. their magic number is now down to three to lock up the one seed in the west. sharks in vancouver final road game of the season.
11:33 pm
hertl lights up the lamp. sharks go up, 1-0. later in the period, hertl again. scores off another ricochet, his second goal of the game, but nearly the end of the period, this is going to be a skeary moment for the sharks. joe thorn goes down after being hit. it appears he injures his left knee. he needed help to the locker room, no official word on the extent of his injury, but the sharks went on to win, 3-1. we hope he's okay. all right, strange things seem to happen to the patriots. the latest incident involves the vince lombardi trophy, a state trophy and a deer. >> he had the trophy in his car when he struck his deer. the state trooper posted this photo on facebook. the employee and the trophy are said to be unhurt.
11:34 pm

sometimes fool even trained criminal investigators. and while tax season may soon be coming to a close, state and federal investigators tell us that tax fraud has quickly grown into a year-round problem. a problem with consequences for all taxpayers. >> press the butson. >> reporter: like most parents, kayla would do anything for her kids. so when the single mother of two received a threatening call from someone posing as the irs, she says she immediately feared for her family. >> the way they harassed, you get scared. >> reporter: she says when the scammers called her, they called armed with detailed information about her background and employment history, adding to their credibility. the callers demanded that she pay them $6,500 immediately, or they said she would be picked up by local law enforcement and arrested by the irs. >> how am i supposed to pay my bills? i don't have that kind of money.
11:37 pm
finally, we went down to 400. >> but instead of paying by credit card, check or money order, she said the callers told her to pay using gift cards bought at a local drug store. gift cards from itunes, where she was supposed to give the i tunes numbers to the scammer over the telephone. >> they kept telling me, do not hang up. >> reporter: while remaining on the telephone the entire time, she said she rushed to a nearby rite aid and emptied her bank account to pay off her supposed debt. >> they told me that i had to pay more money. i said, i don't have that kind of money, i'm sorry. that's when i started getting aggressive with them, letting them know, this isn't right. are you guys really irs? >> reporter: that's when she realized she had been tricked, falling for one of the latest, most aggressive tax scams sweeping the country. >> it's a horrible crime. >> reporter: tim is deputy

11:39 pm
stopped 21,000 fraudulent returns worth about $70 million. >> and they're getting even bolder. there have been instances this past year where the scammers actually called us directly to inquiry about the status of their refund. >> reporter: even so, he admits many more schemes likely go undetected as the problem has been harder and harder to catch and to stop. >> with the amount of information these scammers have, they're filing returns that it's hard to differentiate between a scammer or the authentic taxpayer filing. and if you compare a fraudulent one to an authentic one, the fraudulent one has less errors. >> as a result, the state tax board has stepped up its review process, taking longer to double-check its return. that adds up to longer wait times for anyone expecting a refund, whether or not they are directly impacted by a tax scam.
11:40 pm
kaley was able to get her money back after explaining what happened to rite aid officials. she's speaking out despite being embarrassed at how easily she was fooled. >> stay alert. >> the treasury inspector general tells me the average amount lost is about $500. although he has seen as much as a half million of dollars lost in this latest tax scam. irs officials remind you that federal agents will never call you up and threaten you with arrest over the telephone. and they'll always send you a notice in the mail first. they'll also never accept gift cards, especially itunes gift cards, as payments. if you want to know more, go to our website. i'm stephen stock, nbc bay area news. if you have a tip, give us a call, 888-996-tips. or send an e-mail to the -- us.

no one likes getting stuck at the airport waiting, what the trump administration is proposing as a solution to travel nightmares.
11:42 pm
on september 9, 2010, pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno. the explosion and fire killed eight people. pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno. while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno.
11:43 pm
that's why we're working every day to make pg&e the safest energy company in the nation. it is spring vacation season right now. it continues to get busier and busier. it can bring congestion and delays. but the trump administration said that renovating many of
11:44 pm
america's airports and upgrading the country's air traffic control system could ease those backups. >> reporter: it is frustrating and all too common, your flight leaves the gate, but you're stuck in a traffic jam on the tarmac. >> you see people pull out their cell phone. they're saying, i have this meeting, and we need to reschedule. >> not very fun. usually there's not a lot you can do. just wait. >> reporter: while the faa has been upgrading systems to improve the flow of flights in the u.s. the reality is, airlines have been padding their schedules so planes have a better chance of taking off and landing on time. that means, the time set aside for flights like those from washington to new york, or las vegas to los angeles, is up more than 10%. >> those longer schedules are due in part to congestion, in the air and on the tarmac at some of america's busiest airports. a problem many airlines believe can be fixed by upgrading america's air traffic control system. >> ultimately, we want the pilot
11:45 pm
of the airplane, the air traffic controller, the dispatchers at the airline, to all have the same information at the same time, with which to make the best decisions. american airlines is already trying new approaches to improving the flow of flights at its hub. >> 4733, clear. >> reporter: but the big improvement for all airlines could come if president trump can convince congress to spend billions to fix america's airports, and by extension, the traffic jams clogging up airspace over america's busiest airports. >> i think there's a lot of work under way today and the things that are coming out in the next two to three years. there's some technology that can make a huge difference. over a ten-or so-year period. >> reporter: fixing it so travelers spend less time in a plane and more time at their destination. >> phil lebeau reporting. >> we are in for some major league changes. >> this would have been a good
