Despite earlier alerts, IRS imposters continue to steal millions by calling taxpayers on the phone and threatening jail time if delinquent taxes are not paid immediately. Even if you're savvy, think of friends, family, neighbors and others in your community who might be fooled by these clever creeps. Spread the word that IRS agents do not call you with threats.

Bottom line: hang up on all threatening calls, delete all unsolicited emails, and notify the U. S. Treasury Inspector about any scam attempts.
