Be aware of yet another scam to get hold of your personal information. The IRS is calling. Not true! The IRS does not make random phone calls. This is a scam that our clients are reporting, where they received a call from the “IRS” asking for information.
What should you do if this happens to you? First and foremost, do not give out any information, hang up. You can also take down the phone number they are calling from and add it to the blocked list in your phone system. Before adding it to the blocked list, you may want to check that the number is invalid as scammers will often spoof phone numbers (just as they do with email addresses). We can help if you need it, let us know.
