Every tax season, police receive reports of scammers attempting to impersonate IRS employees, and elderly community members are typically the most vulnerable to these types of scams.
 
It's important to remember the IRS will NOT:
 
-Call you to demand immediate payment. The IRS will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail.
-Demand that you pay taxes and not allow you to question or appeal the amount you owe.
-Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For instance, require that you pay with a prepaid debit card.
-Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
-Threaten to bring in police or other agencies to arrest you for not paying.
 
If you or someone you know receives a suspicious call claiming to be the IRS, HANG UP!

@SugarLandDotCom : Many scams out there..in short if someone makes cold calls it is for them to make money from you...never to benefit you...

@SugarLandDotCom : Most of these scam calls originate overseas and you can identify it's a foreign accent! I recommend everyone to hang up and not initiate any discussions!

Not to offend anyone - but the calls I get seem to have a South Asian Continent accent.

@zoomchum : There are many centers that are from India also, after a few words I talk to them in Hindi and talk friendly, try to find out which city they are from etc...give them a lecture on why they are trying to cheat people etc... usually they then hang up on me...

@Sunnysunset : I just laugh at them and hang up instead of them hanging up on me.
