IRS Text Scam

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

 


There's a new warning about another variation on a scam using the IRS name. People are receiving text messages from a telephone number with a 2-0-2 area code, which is from Washington D.C. The text tells people the IRS is filing a law suit against them, adding that if they don’t respond, a warrant will be forwarded to local law enforcement agencies. Authorities say what you should do is delete the message and forget about it. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text message or social media outlets.
