Letter to the Editor: BEWARE of the IRS Scammers

The scammers are back and persistent. I have received several calls in one day. A male heavily accented voice threatens to take your house and have you deported and have the sheriff arrest you at your house if you do not do what they say.

This all must be done that very day or you will suffer serious consequences.

In order to pay the taxes owed on the document that they have acquired, you must go and get a green dot card for xxx amount of money and call and give them the serial number on the green dot card(s).

This scam is very wide spread and the scammers make a lot of money from innocent and scared victims. PLEASE BEWARE of strangers calling and threatening you. You must ignore them.
