IRS Telephone Scam

Just a heads-up - be very suspicious of anyone calling and claiming to be from the IRS - they don't do that.

IRS Reiterates Warning of Pervasive Telephone Scam

I just got two calls in a row - both left the same pre-recorded message telling me that I needed to call them back before proceedings started.  Yes, it's a threatening scam that is supposed to be scary.

The problem is that the IRS will never call you and leave a recorded message.  They will always contact you through the mail - and it will be obviously authentic.
