IRS Phone Scam

The IRS issued a warning to consumers about a VERY PERVASIVE telephone scam targeting taxpayers throughout the country.  Using sophisticated technology, these scammers appear to be legitimate IRS officials and make threats about police action if taxes and penalties are not paid immediately. 

The same technology that makes so much of our lives easier today can return to haunt us as the scammers have the ability to spoof the IRS hotline number on a “target’s” caller ID and have sent bogus emails that appear to be from the IRS.
