Beware of this tax-season scam. For years, unsuspecting taxpayers have lost millions of dollars to scammers who pose as IRS agents to steal their hard-earned money.
The scheme goes like this: The IRS imposter calls claiming you owe taxes and demands your immediate payment by prepaid debit card or wire transfer. Refuse and you’re threatened with arrest. Here’s what you need to know.
The IRS does not:
• Call to demand immediate payment of taxes owed
• Ask for debit or credit card numbers over the phone
• Threaten to send local police or other law enforcement to arrest you for nonpayment
