Tax Resolution Attorney John P. Willis Highlights IRS Efforts to Prevent Tax Fraud and Tax Scams
Fairhope, AL, April 30, 2018: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR.com, recently posted a new article on his website entitled "What The IRS Is Doing To Stop Fraudulent Returns And New Tax Scams" in which Mr. Willis shares recent statistics.
Willis writes, "In the past few years, as tax season approached the deadline, it has been typical for cyber criminals to step up their game." He adds, "This year is no exception according to The Internal Revenue Service. In fact, just a few days ago the IRS issued a warning about a new email tax scam with the subject line 'IRS Refunds'."
Willis points out that, "An article at accountingtoday.com explains that, "The IRS has been seeing the scam used by cybercriminals to trick people into opening a link or attachment in the e-mail. The link takes unsuspecting victims to a bogus web page where cybercriminals try to steal personally identifiable information, including their Social Security number." In addition, the article states that, "The links and attachments can also secretly download malware that can perform many functions, such as giving the thief control of the computer or tracking keystrokes to find other sensitive passwords or critical data."
Willis reminds readers that, "It is important to keep in mind that the IRS initiates most contracts through regular mail delivered by the Post Office. That's called snail mail. They do not send emails, text messages nor do they contact individuals or businesses by phone." He goes on to cite statistics on the numbers of fraudulent returns the IRS prevented from making it through the system.
