CBS This Morning covered an important story about yet another tax scam.  Under this scam, thieves posing as IRS agents call individuals and use scare tactics to frighten the victims into sending money.  The threat is that if money is not sent immediately, a warrant will be issued for the victim’s arrest.  This scam is so prevalent, I had a friend that received one of these calls this week.  The full CBS This Morning story can be found here.

Please be aware that the IRS does not contact individuals by phone.  If you receive one of these calls, hang up.
