IRS Scam

Please be aware of a recent effort by some to trick you into believing they are the IRS
and you owe them money.  The caller will pretend to be an IRS agent or other government representative and explain to you that you are being sued by the IRS, or owe them money. 

They will then ask you to use western union or send them money orders, etc. to correct the issue.  This is a scam to take your money.  IRS does NOT call taxpayers.  If the IRS wanted to notify you they would do it by mail.  Please remind others of this scam so they too will be prepared.
