Phone Call From Irs is Fake Tax Scam.
Don’t be fooled by a “phone call from IRS.” This is a very common tax scam going around.
We reported before about a tax scam phone call from 920-535-4222, and many other numbers. This a common phone scammer from India. You should pretty much never receive a phone call from IRS. The IRS will never call you unless you have current business that you would be aware of already.
Due to recent IRS budget cuts and massive layoffs, the IRS would also be unable to call you because there just isn’t enough man power there right now.
