On October 31, 2013, The Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) warned of a telephone scam targeting taxpayers. Victims, contacted primarily by phone, are often told that they owe money and must immediately pay by pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. Other characteristics of such scams include fake names and badge numbers.
“This scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every state in the country. We want to educate taxpayers so they can help protect themselves. Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a prepaid debit card or wire transfer”
