The phone rings. You see a number that you don’t recognize, but pick up the call anyway. An agent claiming to be from the IRS says that you owe back taxes and threatens to arrest you or file a law suit against you if you don’t make an immediate payment over the phone. Thousands of Americans faced this exact situation in 2016. This is a prime example of an IRS scam.
