Scam call reported to TheHuntingtonian.com. It happened two times today. Both times, the voice is a Hindu male with a British accent, speaking English from a script. The first call was at noon. The scammer says, “I am calling to inform you that you are the subject of an enforcement…” I ended the call. He called again at 11:33 PM, awakening me and my wife. I did not answer the phone. I got his full message and phone number. I will report the call today to my telephone company. I will move my phone to another area of the house for awhile and stop answering it.
WHAT THE IRS/TREASURY SAYS:
Per the IRS-Based on the 90,000 complaints that TIGTA has received through its telephone hotline, to date, TIGTA has identified approximately 1,100 victims who have lost an estimated $5 million from these scams.
“There are clear warning signs about these scams, which continue at high levels throughout the nation,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “Taxpayers should remember their first contact with the IRS will not be a call from out of the blue, but through official correspondence sent through the mail. A big red flag for these scams are angry, threatening calls from people who say they are from the IRS and urging immediate payment. This is not how we operate. People should hang up immediately and contact TIGTA or the IRS.”
Additionally, it is important for taxpayers to know that the IRS:
- Never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone.
- Never insists that taxpayers use a specific payment method to pay tax obligations
- Never requests immediate payment over the telephone and will not take enforcement action immediately following a phone conversation. Taxpayers usually receive prior notification of IRS enforcement action involving IRS tax liens or levies.
Potential phone scam victims may be told that they owe money that must be paid immediately to the IRS or they are entitled to big refunds. When unsuccessful the first time, sometimes phone scammers call back trying a new strategy.
