Scammers make the call seem legitimate

Criminals impersonating IRS Agents use aggressive,

it look like a government agency is calling.

 

Scammers make the call sound official.

 

Scammers calling under the guise of verifying tax return information over the phone. The caller will use IRS titles or badge numbers and your personal information.
