Debt & Tax Collection are Top Scams in Massachusetts

Thursday, September 08, 2016

 

The Better Business Bureau has reported that the top scam affecting Massachusetts residents is debt and tax collection. 

According to the Bureau and their scam tracker, consumers reported receiving calls from scammers claiming to be the U.S. Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service, and the legal department of the IRS. 

One consumer reported that if they did not contact the scammer, then they would be taken to court for a Federal offense. Meanwhile, another consumer reported that the IRS has named them in a criminal lawsuit and provided the case number. 

In multiple reports, scammers claiming to be collecting taxes will threaten with lawsuits, arrests, and jail time if immediate payment is not received. 

The BBB advises consumers to never wire money or sent prepaid debit cards to scammers claiming to be from the IRS.
