In todays world it is sad but people don’t like to work for the money they will take advantage of you or your family if they can. The IRS although not our favorite group of people does have a place to report these scams. I have included the link to the site and where to report these tax scams.
What can I tell you? Be vigilant and don’t give your information to just anyone. Keep your information too yourself. You should always be skeptical of people asking for more information than you think they should be. Know who you do business with or get references.
