Tax Expert and Advisor Barry G. Fowler, EA, Reveals A New Batch of Phone Scams Readers Must Resist
Houston, TX – April 16, 2018 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled "Curiosity Kills The Cat And Scams The Curious." Mr. Fowler's concern is that more people will be giving scammers important information that will result in financial loss.
Fowler says, "I have written frequently about the multitude of tax scams. And once again, the scammers have found a way to play to and outwit your insatiable curiosity." He adds, "Here's one of the latest scams to be aware of, and how it works."
As Fowler points out, "Scammers know that more and more people are screening and not answering calls from unrecognized or private numbers. So now," he adds, "the crooks have developed software that allows them to display irresistible 'fake' numbers."
One scam, Fowler writes, "has your area code and prefix and potentially could be from a neighbor or nearby business." He continues adding, "It's not the kind of number people are likely to block which increases the scammers' success rate. In addition, according to some sources, these local numbers make it harder for law enforcement to track."
