IRS Scam Info

irs-scam-calls2

IRS scams are one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. I received a phone call last week from someone claiming to be from the IRS. It was kind of funny as they mangled different corporate names we have, but it is no laughing matter if you are one of the unfortunate victims to these low-life scammers.

They typically use threats of police arrest and jail to intimidate victims into paying up fast – usually by money transfer or prepaid cards.

One important thing to remember is the IRS does not use the phone or even email to notify people if they owe taxes – and they do not request money-wire transfers or debit cards for payment.

Enjoy this beautiful fall day!
