scam claims to be from IRS
A new e-mail scam claiming recipients are being investigated
for tax fraud could be used to steal identities, according to U.S.
Representative Bart Gordon.
The e-mail recipients are directed to an official-looking
web-site and prompted to reveal Social Security numbers, driver
license information, and bank and credit card numbers.
"Middle Tennesseans must be cautious when giving
out any personal information," Gordon said. "The victims
of identity theft can spend years trying to restore their credit."
According to Internal Revenue Service and U.S. Department
of the Treasury, the text of the e-mail leads taxpayers to believe
they are being investigated for tax fraud. IRS does not contact
taxpayers via e-mail, so taxpayers should be suspicious of any e-mail
concerning an IRS account.
"Consumers have to be savvy and keep their personal
information secure," Gordon said. "If you're suspicious
of giving out your information, contact the organization that requested
it. It's better to spend a few minutes verifying the request than
years restoring your good name."
Anyone who has received a suspicious e-mail should
contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration's
fraud hotline at 1-800-366-4484.
Taxpayers may also contact IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
