Listen to IRS imposter scam robocall that threatens a lawsuit

The Internal Revenue Service imposter scam is making the rounds. Palm Beach County residents are among those all over the country receiving robocalls from someone claiming the IRS is about to file a lawsuit against them.

The caller asks for the victim to call back. The call-back numbers vary.

Don’t fall for this scam. Just hang up! The calls are from criminals wanting to put charges on victims’ credit cards and elicit personal information from them.

The IRS won’t call out of the blue to ask for payment, won’t demand a specific form of payment and won’t leave a message threatening to sue you if you don’t pay right away, the Federal Trade Commission advises.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Setting aside that the IRS is itself a fraud, the scammers have a target-rich environment given how many Americans are in tax troubles right now!
