IRS warns of a new phone scam
The Internal Revenue Service is warning citizens across the country to be aware of a scam in which fraudsters call and demand immediate payment through a prepaid card. According to a press release, the fraudsters claim to be from the IRS and claims that verified letters have been sent in the mail but have been returned as undeliverable. The victim is threatened with arrest and told not to contact their tax preparer or their local IRS office. "This is a new twist to an old scam," said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. "Just because tax season is over, scams and schemes do not take the summer off. People should stay vigilant against IRS impersonation scams."
