Not only are the fake Internal Revenue Service scammers refusing to give up, but these scammers are also continuing to get more convincing, according to KOIN News.

Prior to contacting these victims, IRS scammers collect personal data about the taxpayers they target. This approach makes the fraudsters seem more powerful and legitimate. One victim told KOIN News that scammers had his social security number, which fooled him into paying the fraudulent caller for IRS Tax Relief.

IRS Scammers recently targeted our HR manager (audio included).

Because the IRS needs documentation, they will never contact you via phone call without first sending you a bill. Their first form of communication is always via mail.

Internal Revenue Service official will NEVER request payments via MoneyGram, Western Union, or any other money wiring method, for any IRS Settlement or Tax Debt Help with the IRS or the Department of the Treasury. If you receive a fraudulent call, simply hang up and file a report on the “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” page.
