****Caller ID Spoofing Alert****
Caller ID service is susceptible to fraud. Using a practice known as “caller ID spoofing,” callers can deliberately falsify the telephone number and/or name relayed as the Caller ID information to disguise the identity of the calling party. For example, identity thieves who want to collect sensitive information such as your bank account or other financial account numbers, your social security number, your date of birth or your mother’s maiden name, sometimes use caller ID spoofing to make it appear as though they are calling from your bank, credit card company, or even a government agency.
Please visit the FCC.gov link below for more information.
Over the past month or two, you may have received a phone call from someone claiming to be an IRS agent. The person calling identifies themselves as being an agent of the IRS and is calling in regards to outstanding back taxes. The IRS agent tells the party that “legal application” is being processed against the party unless $5,000.00 outstanding tax debt is paid. The alleged agent knows the name and address of the person they are calling but then attempts to gain further backround information such as (date of birth, social security number and workplace etc.). If this was truly the IRS calling, they would already have the information and have no need to be asking for it. Don’t be fooled, as they try to intimidate you with this term of “legal application” in order to get money out of you. They will even tell you that if they do not receive the taxes owed then they will issue a warrant for your arrest. According to the IRS website, the IRS never contacts you by phone. If you have any questions or concern please visit the IRS website http://www.irs.gov/ for further information.
