The IRS is warning the public about a phone scam that targets people across the nation, including recent immigrants.
Callers claiming to be from the IRS tell intended victims they owe taxes and must pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer.
The caller threatens those who refuse to pay with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver’s license.
The callers who commit this fraud often:
• Use common names and fake IRS badge numbers.
• Know the last four digits of the victim’s Social Security number.
