Senior citizens account for nearly 33% of complaints filed with the FTC and these victims have lost approximately $2.9 BILLION in 2010 alone.
Let’s help our families and friends and put a stop to the targeting of our Seniors!!
Last year, approximately 200 victims per week were contacted by IRS impersonators and swindled out of money.
Here are some tips on how to spot this IRS scam:
– Just know, the IRS will NEVER make phone calls asking for bank information or social security numbers.
– NEVER give out personal information by phone. If you don’t feel comfortable, don’t do it.
– If you suspect you’ve been a victim of ID theft, call your local police department to file a report, and call national credit reporting agencies, and the FTC.
