IRS Phone Scam Terrorizes South Florida
What is now being called the largest tax fraud scam ever to occur in the United States is now found to be in our back yard? CBS Miami has reported that a group of unsavory individuals has been posing as IRS agents and running an IRS Phone Scam. Apparently the fraudsters are calling unsuspecting people and threatening them with arrests and other penalties if they do not make immediate payments. Of course, the payments were made through anonymous money wiring and nothing good came from them. At the Law Office of Darrin Mish, we are very familiar with the IRS and if you have been contacted and are not sure what you should contact us today to discuss you tax issues.
The IRS Phone scam report went on to explain that these fraudulent calls were often aimed at the elderly and those who are in serious tax situations.

Mostly we encourage you not to have any conversations with anyone you think is not truly from the Internal Revenue Service that may be part of an IRS Phone Scam if they:
- Threaten you in any way
- Tell you there is only one way to make your payment
- Ask for personal information or a credit card number over the phone
- Are calling you to tell you about an immediate payment that must be made within 24 hours
