Few people are familiar with tax refund scammers and how they operate, which makes it easier to fall victim to them. If you want to avoid this scam, read on to learn more about it. We also have information on what to do if you’ve already been scammed.
Why are tax rebate scammers so easy to fall for?
Tax rebate scams proliferate because almost everyone pays taxes, and everyone wants a refund. Even if you did your taxes and weren’t owed a refund, they’re so complicated and confusing that you could easily believe that you’d made a mistake and the government is correct about it. So of course if you get a call offering you a rebate that you were or were not expecting, of course, you agree to provide the necessary information to get the money you believe you are owed.
Phone and email
The most common communication methods for refund scammers are phone and email. However they contact you, it goes the same way: they say they have to refund some of your tax money. They say that your personal bank information is necessary. But rather than sending you a deposit, they clean out your account. By the time you realize you’ve been scammed, all of your money is gone.
The government will not ask for personal information
Real government tax agencies would never ask you for private information over the phone or email. If you keep this in mind, it will be easy to spot a tax rebate scam when it happens to you.
