The IRS warned consumers about a phone scam targeting taxpayers. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license.  The IRS will never ask for a credit card number over the phone, nor request a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. If you’ve been targeted by this scam, report it at FTC.gov or IRS.gov.
