Government Imposter Scams

Join AARP Mississippi for an important Telephone Town Hall at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2 about government impostor scams. Scammers rip off unwary taxpayers by impersonating agents of the Internal Revenue Service. To join the call, click here.

They’ll call and insist that a potential victim has an unpaid tax bill and faces arrest unless they pay up, immediately. Con artists have numerous ways to make the hoax seem convincing. They can trick a caller ID to make it appear that the call is coming from an actual IRS office, and they may even know part of the mark’s Social Security number. To join the call, click here.
