Naval Criminal Investigative Service Notice:


The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued a consumer alert providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS. These callers may demand money or may say you have a refund due and try to trick you into sharing private information. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They may know a lot about you, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. If you don't answer, they often leave an "urgent" callback request. Below are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam. The IRS will never:


* Call to demand immediate payment, nor will we call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.


* Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.


* Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.


* Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.


* Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
