IRS Scammers

March 18th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Many people have gotten notices from the IRS that they may be receiving a tax rebate of up to 12 hundred dollars per family. The rebates were ordered by congress earlier this year and should arrive in May. But scammers are trying to take advantage of people according to the IRS. Spokesman Norm Meadows says dont give your personal information to anyone who contacts you over the internet claiming to be from the IRS.

But please, never respond to an original email from the IRS, allegedly from the IRS, that promises a refund, that threatens an audit, because its just a scammer, who again, is trying to get your personal ID information to sell via the internet for a multitude of other crimes, Meadows said.

Meadows says the IRS will always contact you via mail, and likely certified mail before beginning an email communication with a taxpayer.
