As we head into tax season the charlatans will be coming out of the woodwork and trying to get anyone that they can. I don’t answer the phone if I don’t recognize the number or I’m not expecting a call. Today caller ID showed a number purporting to be from Washington DC. I didn’t answer and it went to voicemail.
“Audit we found that there was a fraud and misconduct on your tax which you are hiding from the Federal government. This needs to be rectified immediately so do return the call as soon as you receive the message. The number is 202-897-2653. I repeat again 202-897-2653. Thank you.”
Please pass on to persons who may be at risk to be taken in by these fraudsters.
