Alert: IRS warns of new impersonation scam
IRS warns of new impersonation scam. The IRS has issued a warning concerning a scam linked to the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). The scam involves fraudsters calling potential victims and demanding an immediate payment through a prepaid debit card. The scammers impersonate IRS employees and tell the victims about certified letters that purportedly were mailed to the taxpayer but returned as undeliverable. Targets of the scam are told that the prepaid debit card is linked to the EFTPS and they’re threatened with arrest if a payment isn’t made.
