Tax Resolution Expert, Attorney Lance Drury Helps Taxpayers Turn the Tables on The IRS Tax Scammers.

Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of "Successonomics" entreats readers to control their fear and expose IRS tax scammers instead of becoming their prey. St Genevieve, MO, February 9, 2015:Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of "Successonomics" posted a new article on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled "Don't Get Caught By The Dirty Rotten Scammers."  When fear of the IRS can be controlled, tax scammers lose control is the message Mr. Drury delivers. Drury writes about what happens when most people think they're in trouble with the IRS, saying, "Fear is the first emotion that comes up and that's exactly what these scammers prey upon." Becoming aware of the techniques scammers use is important, says Drury. He offers a list of tricks that have been used by scammers to fool taxpayers, saying, "Most important is to control your fear" despite the fact that they

  • Use common names and provide fake IRS badge numbers.
  • Know the last four digits of the victim's Social Security number.
  • Make it appear as if the IRS is really calling.
  • Send fake IRS emails to support their scam.
  • Call a second time claiming to be the police or DMV to support their claim.

Drury turns the reader's attention to the IRS.gov website for more information writing, "Each year the IRS publishes the top twelve scams. (www.irs.gov) In the last few years the one that continues to top the list is the phone scam." According to Drury, "When it comes to the phone, the only thing you need to remember, if you can keep your wits about you is that the IRS never initiates collecting a debt via telephone. If you can only remember this one thing, you'll have the presence of mind to do one of three things: 1) Ask for a name and number and once you get that information tell them your lawyer will call them back; 2) hang up; or 3) simply tell them to bug off. As Drury continues, he warns, "The face-to-face scammer is particularly deceitful. They'll tell you they can get huge returns. The ways in which they do this are illegal. By the time you're expecting a big check, they've pocketed it and you're left to face the IRS for illegal claims, back taxes owed and huge fines. So select your tax preparer very carefully. If they do not file electronically let that be the first and only red flag. Walk away. Even if that particular tax preparer comes by way of a friend's recommendation, walk away."
