Crime Tip Thursday: It is a month away from the tax filing deadline and it seems like every year there is a new IRS scam. One of these new scams involves the scammer filing a fraudulent tax return in your name and have the refund deposited directly into your bank account. The scammers will then call you posing as debt collection agency officials on behalf of the IRS to say the refund was deposited in error, and ask the you to forward the money to a fake account. If you receive one of these unexpected deposits from the IRS, reach out to them yourself. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2018/02/13/irs-issues-urgent-warning-on-new-tax-refund-scam-and-its-not-what-youd-expect/#53982cedf4b2
