“The IRS is Suing You” Scam

Here’s one of a new breed of scams that’s circulating now – telephone. Based upon info that the cyber criminals have obtained about you, you receive a robo-call that goes something like this: “We have been trying to reach you. This call is officially a final notice from IRS, the internal revenue service. The reason of this call is to inform you that the IRS is filing lawsuit against you. To get more information about this case file, please call immediately on our department number 360-362-4254”

Cleverly, the 360 area code is in Washington outside of Seattle but it looks official when you see “Washington” on your caller ID.

Everyone be careful out there!
