909-271-0429 IRS Scam

Today I got home and there was a message on my caller ID with the ID name of REFUND. It 020414_1627_BetterBusin1.jpgcame from (909) 271-0429 which is in California. The person who called had a thick foreign accent, they always seem to have thick foreign accents. The message said that they claimed to be from the IRS and that it was really important and if I didn’t return the call there would be consequences.

  • I have to repeat the IRS WILL NOT CALL YOU.
  • They will send you an official letter by mail that has all the verifiable information for you.
  • The Internal Revenue Service does not use the Caller ID Name Refund.

If you received such a call.

  1. Do you volunteer or confirm and personal information.
  2. Hang up.
  3. Report it: https://www.treasury.gov/tigta/contact_report_scam.shtml
