IRS Warns of Unprecedented Telephone Scam
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is warning taxpayers of a sophisticated nationwide phone scheme that has become "the largest scam of its kind that we have ever seen." The scheme is believed to involve people telephoning taxpayers claiming they represent the IRS and demanding immediate payments with a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer.
Reportedly thousands of victims -- taxpayers -- have already paid more than $1 million to fraudsters, according to Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) Russell George. He stated that his agency has received more than 20,000 reports of contact. Government officials also said that the perpetrators often know the last four digits of the victims' Social Security numbers and threaten arrest, deportation and removal of driver's licenses -- something the IRS is not authorized to do.
"If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and uses threatening language if you don't pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn't the IRS calling," George said in a statement. The callers have reportedly used common names and fake IRS badge numbers, in addition to manipulating their caller IDs to appear legitimate, according to officials. Some of the fraudsters also follow up with fake IRS emails and phone calls in which they pretend to represent the police or DMV officials, TIGTA said. In reality, the IRS typically contacts taxpayers first by mail or with personal visits by field agents; and the IRS does not accept credit card information by phone, according to TIGTA officials.
