Feds Say IRS Impersonator Call-Center Scheme Netted Millions
I’ve had a couple of calls from IRS impersonators this past year, so I’m assuming that most others have too, so this is great news. I really hope they throw the book at these miserable mewling pukes.
WASHINGTON (CN) — Authorities arrested 20 people Thursday on charges that they impersonated IRS and federal immigration officials in phone calls that bilked over 15,000 victims out of hundreds of millions of dollars. The alleged scammers called their victims and pretend to be representatives of government agencies seeking to collect on unpaid back taxes or other fines.
