IRS Scam Warning

IRS ScamIt seems that people nationwide have been receiving calls from criminals pretending to be IRS agents. Often they will leave urgent callback requests and once they have someone on the phone will intimidate the victim into making immediate payments. Don’t be fooled.

Keep in mind this information from the IRS:

 

  1. The IRS will never call to demand immediate payment, and they will never call without first mailing a bill.
  2. The IRS will never demand you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they claim you owe.
  3. The IRS will never require you to use a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card.
  4. The IRS will never threaten to bring in law enforcement groups to have you arrested for non-payment.
  5. The IRS does not use email, text messages, or any social media to discuss personal tax issues involving bills or refunds.

Beware that the elderly, recent immigrants and those who do not speak English as a first language are often the most targeted in these scams. If you’ve been contacted by one of these scammers or even victimized, you can report the experience online here: Report Scam

I hope you find this information useful. Feel free to pass it along. I am always on the lookout for ways to help protect my friends and clients.

About AmyCraft

I've made a commitment to serve the real estate needs of my community - one family and one home at a time. My real estate knowledge and expertise are completely dedicated to you. I am a Graduate of Champions School of Real Estate and came into the real estate profession with an education background. Prior to working in real estate I was the owner of a successful daycare center. My career as an educator was very rewarding and taught me many things that I believe I have benefited from in the real estate industry. I have learned such things as negotiating with people while always keeping their best interest in mind, listening to what they are saying, maintaining flexibility and understanding, performing multiple tasks simultaneously and how to be assertive yet remaining calm under the most stressful situations. A real estate deal may be the biggest financial transaction a person will ever make. I try to respond to peoples concerns and fears with as much information as I can provide. Most importantly, I want to make sure my clients are comfortable with a certain price range rather than trying to push the pre-approved amount on them. I'm not a pushy Realtor, but I'm aggressive when it comes to getting my clients what they want. Whether you're looking to buy or sell, I can get your home sold, or find you the home you've been dreaming of. Either way, my goal is to make your experience comfortable, guided, fast, and efficient. After all "Nobody Knows The Area Better Than A Good Neighbor".
