Just in time for ‘back to school’, there is a new phone scam out there….
Internal Revenue Service spokesman David Tucker the Second says they usually demand immediate payment through either an I-Tunes gift card, or some other immediate transfer. They’ll also try to scare people by saying that if they don’t comply immediately, they’ll be arrested. Tucker says what’s worse, is that even if you have caller I-D, the call may appear to be legit…
Tucker reminds you that the I-R-S never demands immediate payment, and if there is any kind of non-payment issue, they will notify you by mail first. Also, if you have any questions about the legitimacy of the call, you can call the I-R-S yourself. And a reminder, *never* give personal financial information to someone you do not know.
