Twenty people were recently arrested in another fake IRS scam. This one involved call centers in India and runners doing some of the ground work in the US. These scammers convinced people that they would be arrested if they didn’t make immediate payments through a variety of gift cards. The real IRS does not accept gift cards to pay tax bills. But, they have set up locations where tax payments can be made in cash through authorized vendors. For details on this new program see here.
