A scammer is a person who swindles you by means of deception or fraud.  They used to be called con artists, con man, welsher, or grafter.  Fraud and scams are at an all-time high.  Don’t be a victim!  The most popular scam in the next few weeks and months will be the “IRS Scam”.  Be on the lookout for these scams!  “I’m calling from the IRS.” Con artists in this scam frequently target seniors, scaring them into thinking they owe the IRS.  They claim if the bill isn’t paid immediately you will be arrested.  “You got a refund by mistake.”  Cybercriminals have turned to stealing people’s data from tax professionals and businesses.  The crooks file a fraudulent tax return that results in a refund.  The money may even be deposited into your account.  You then get a scam call or message demanding the refund back.  “You must pay your tax bill with a gift card.”  People targeted by this scam are told to go to a major retail store and buy gift cards.  Once the cards are purchased the victim is told to call back a number and provide the card’s activation code.  Just remember the following points:  The IRS does not call you on the phone.  The IRS will first send you a notice by U.S. Mail.  The IRS does not leave menacing messages.  The agency’s employees will not threaten you with arrest.  The IRS does not tell you to use a gift card for an unpaid tax bill.  The agency will not demand a specific payment method.  The IRS does not call immediately after Tax Day.  If you have doubts about the legitimacy of the call, please call your tax preparer and/or financial institution.
