MyVirtualCPA : The IRS will never contact you regarding an inheritance
Customer: Thank You Should I take a copy of this to my local IRS office or are they aware of this scam that is going on? Is this random?
MyVirtualCPA : You can take the notice to your local IRS office to let them know, yes and they can check to make sure that your account has not had any strange activity
MyVirtualCPA : It is random, though.
Customer: Can they check right then? This is to important to put on the back burner. If there has been activity will they advise me of what to do and who to contact?
MyVirtualCPA : They can check right then, yes. They will put an alert on your account if they do see anything suspect going on.
