Taxpayers around the area continue to receive calls from alleged IRS representatives stating that “This is a final notice from IRS that we are filing a lawsuit against you.” The callers are often rude and belligerent. If you are not home they will leave a message 100c and tell you to call a phone number.
This is a scam and is intended to steal information and, if possible, funds from unwary victims. The calls often originate from outside the U.S. and can be computer-generated.
The IRS will not act in this manner and will not call a taxpayer on the telephone without having had some real contact with that taxpayer. If you receive such a call, hang up. You may report the call using the IRS Report Phishing website.
