IRS Scam Being Investigated by Department of Treasury

There have been many reports of citizens receiving calls where the caller claims he/she owes back taxes.  The caller attempts to persuade the victim to purchase a “Green Dot” card by providing credit card information over the phone to pay the tax liability.  In many cases, the caller claims to be an IRS Agent and threatens the victim with arrest. The IRS is NOT calling citizens to collect money. 

The Department of Treasury’s Inspector General for Tax Administration Unit is actively investigating these phone fraud cases for the IRS.   The Federal Agents are meeting with each victim to get the details on their case.  All reports need to go directly to the Department of Treasury.
