    Inside This Issue

    IRS Warns of New Phone Scam Involving Bogus Certified Letters; Reminds People to Remain Vigilant Against Scams, Schemes this Summer

    IRS YouTube Videos:

    WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service today warned people to beware of a new scam linked to the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS), where fraudsters call to demand an immediate tax payment through a prepaid debit card. This scam is being reported across the country, so taxpayers should be alert to the details.

    In the latest twist, the scammer claims to be from the IRS and tells the victim about two certified letters purportedly sent to the taxpayer in the mail but returned as undeliverable. The scam artist then threatens arrest if a payment is not made through a prepaid debit card. The scammer also tells the victim that the card is linked to the EFTPS system when, in fact, it is entirely controlled by the scammer. The victim is also warned not to contact their tax preparer, an attorney or their local IRS office until after the tax payment is made.

    “This is a new twist to an old scam,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “Just because tax season is over, scams and schemes do not take the summer off. People should stay vigilant against IRS impersonation scams. People should remember that the first contact they receive from IRS will not be through a random, threatening phone call.”

    EFTPS is an automated system for paying federal taxes electronically using the Internet or by phone using the EFTPS Voice Response System. EFTPS is offered free by the U.S. Department of Treasury and does not require the purchase of a prepaid debit card. Since EFTPS is an automated system, taxpayers won’t receive a call from the IRS. In addition, taxpayers have several options for paying a real tax bill and are not required to use a specific one.

    Tell Tale Signs of a Scam:

    The IRS (and its authorized private collection agencies) will never:

    • Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. The IRS does not use these methods for tax payments. Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes. All tax payments should only be made payable to the U.S. Treasury and checks should never be made payable to third parties.
    • Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying.
    • Demand that taxes be paid without giving the taxpayer the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.
    • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.

    For anyone who doesn’t owe taxes and has no reason to think they do:

    For anyone who owes tax or thinks they do:

    The IRS does not use email, text messages or social media to discuss personal tax issues, such as those involving bills or refunds. For more information, visit the “Tax Scams and Consumer Alerts” page on IRS.gov. Additional information about tax scams is available on IRS social media sites, including YouTube videos.

    On June 9th, 7:30-8:30 am, KC Networking Group (KCNG) will host their 2nd quarter Business Workshop with a discussion of Steve Gordon’s Referral Kit and how to create one, and then how to use one to begin your quest for unstoppable referrals. 

    The source for the workshop comes from Unstoppable Referrals: 10X Referrals – Half the Effort and is a great book by Steve Gordon, editor of The Unstoppable CEO – The Leadership Journal for Growing Firms. 

    Phyllis Cronbaugh, Realtor® with Keller Williams Diamond Partners, will lead the workshop and demonstrate a referral kit that she created in a recent writing class and show how it is different from other marketing techniques. 

    KCNG meets at Pegah’s Restaurant in their private room at 12122 W 87th St, Lenexa, KS 66215 (just a couple blocks west of I-35 on 87th St). Join the workshop as my guest on June 9th. If you would like breakfast, come between 7:00-7:15. The workshop will start at 7:30 and end by 8:30 am. RSVP if you are attending and not a member of KCNG, so we have handouts for everyone.
