Hi,

...

Yes this is a scam. They have been on the increase in the last three years.

...

See this from IRS: https://www.irs.gov/uac/IRS-Urges-Public-to-Stay-Alert-for-Scam-Phone-Calls

...

IRS will never call you. They use US mail for their correspondence.

...

You may call IRS, but IRS does not call taxpayers

If this HAS helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd really appreciate a positive rating (using the rating request, faces, or stars on your screen)

That’s the only way JustAnswer will credit me for the work here.
