Vigilant fake IRS is calling

Source: admin Release Time: 00:56:22 2018-09-05

“The fake IRS is calling on consumers to demand immediate payment of unpaid taxes,” said Lai Ning. “They asked for payment within 24 hours. We continue to see these calls at a higher level, four times the number of calls we see in a month. They continue to ask consumers to pay immediately and by arrest or expulsion. Threatening them."

She said that another scam involved a person's active call and said that your computer had a problem.

“Consumers received a call saying their computer was sending out a detected virus,” Lai Ning explained. “You can solve some problems by connecting some money there, paying by credit card, and providing access to the computer.”

Officials always say that you should not provide personal information to anyone you don't know by phone. The US Internal Revenue Service and utility companies do not contact the public in this way for payment. If you have a complaint, please contact the Consumer Protection Department.

    This person contacted me and said strange things. I hung up and they called right back. Blocked.
