Beware Venice Florida of IRS Phone Scams – Part 2

Warning Venice Florida: Scammers Claiming to be IRS on the Rise!

The IRS has compiled a list of common tactics of these scams.

For the previous 3 scams in this list, please visit the first article on our Blog.

The remaining 3 common IRS scams in Florida are as follows:

4. Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.
5. Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call center.
6. After threatening victims with jail time or drivers license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.

If you receive a call from one of these phony IRS scammers, remember, tell the caller that you are represented by an enrolled agent and give them my name and contact information. You should then get off the phone and let me know about the situation as soon as possible.
