IRS Scam Alert Targeting Deaf People

February 23, 2017

 

The IRS is warning Deaf people about various scammers using VRS interpreting services to act like IRS agents and ask for personal information. The IRS said you shouldn’t automatically trust calls made through VRS services because VRS interpreters do not screen calls to see if they are valid or not — that IRS usually mails a letter to the taxpayer about tax-related issues first before making a phone call. 

 

If the person is demanding immediate payment, threatens arrest by police, or ask for credit/debit card information, then it is more likely a scammer. If you think someone is a scammer or are not sure, you can call IRS to confirm or file a complaint. More information at the link below.
