IRS phone scam still going
Brandon, Miss. – Even though tax season is over, that has not stopped scammers from continuing to pose as IRS officials and making calls threatening jail, deportation and loss of property. Calls have been made to individuals across the country, including the state of Mississippi, claiming there is a problem with their tax return.
Callers to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Mississippi say they have been left voicemail messages stating they need to contact the IRS immediately, or they would face legal consequences. Other messages threatened arrest by U.S. Marshals for failure to pay the correct amount of taxes.
