Identity theft comes in many ways, shapes and sizes. Thieves will stop at nothing to get ahold of your personal information. The best way for them to do this is to make you very afraid. And what are most people afraid of? The IRS.
Pervasive Telephone Scams
Well, the IRS has issued warnings recently about ‘Pervasive Telephone Scams’
The IRS will always send taxpayers a written notification of any tax due via the U.S. mail. Additionally, the IRS never asks for credit card, debit card, or prepaid card information over the telephone. In the case of the recent scams, potential victims are threatened with deportation, arrest, having their utilities shut off, or having their driver’s licenses revoked.
This is also the same for IRS emails.
