IRS Scam and Process of Its Reporting

IRS ScamAre you getting offensive calls from someone alleging that they are the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee? If yes, then watch on such pranksters asking you to pay taxes otherwise they would take strict legal action against you. Beware of these imposters.

The IRS issued a warning for a scam in which fake officials frighten people for hiding lakh of money and paying zero tax on black money. On some situations, they convey that a refund is in process and ask your biological information so that they can transfer the money.

In fact, they also know that the filing deadline of the client is six months or a year away, still they construct a trap against those innocent. The issue came in limelight when a Baptist minister from North Carolina spent hours on phone with swindler who dumped him of a heavy amount of $17,000.

In the past, lakhs of complaints have been received by the Treasury General of Tax Administration. Approximately 20,000 victims have lost around millions of dollars.
According to the IRS such scams have horrifying calculation. The phone shows the actual IRS phone number, along with the last four digits of employer’s social security number with his other personal details.

The IRS strictly conveyed in their news that it never calls and sends emails about the personal information of the person. These notifications are sent through snail mail.

If you are ever being contacted in future by such imposters, then the IRS requests you to call the Treasury Inspector for Tax Administration.
