The IRS is warning that scammers have targeted thousands of Americans, and walked away with more than a million dollars of taxpayer money. Here's how the fraud works: they tell us in a telephone call, often aimed at immigrants, that we owe unpaid taxes. These scammers can even manipulate caller ID displays to make it appear as though the call is coming from the IRS. Here's an example of a scammer trying to swindle money from an unsuspecting taxpayer.
If you get a call from anyone who tells you they are calling from the IRS , Hang UP! Internal Revenue Service do not call. they only contact through the mail.
