Please be aware that there are a high volume of tax and immigration scams this time of year.  Most of these types of scams will spoof a government agency phone number in order to look official.

The IRS, DHS, and other government agencies will never contact you by phone or email.

Signs of a Scam Phone Call:

  1. Caller requests you to pay a fine using Western Union, PayPal, Green Dot, MoneyGram or some other wire transfer service.
  2. Caller threatens your arrest or deportation for failure to act within a very short period of time.
  3. Caller will try to prevent you from hanging up, asking you to visit a retail store to transfer funds while remaining on the phone.
