Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” shares a CBS News Report about how the IRS tax impersonation scam operates and how to avoid becoming another victim. St Genevieve, MO, March 16, 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 “The Most Ruthless IRS Tax Scam in History. “ It is a message that bears repeating. Mr. Drury says, “I am writing about the IRS telephone tax scam again because it is not going away anytime soon. In fact, the scam is gathering steam and speed. According to CBS News, “The people behind this scam are calling at least 10,000 Americans every week.” Despite a multitude of warnings, victims are still falling for the fear tactics. As Drury writes, “The IRS continues to issue alerts on irs.gov about this massive phone scam. However these scammers are absolutely ruthless. So don’t let your guard down, even if you’ve already filed your tax return. If anyone calls saying they are from the IRS, hang up the phone. If they leave a voice message, do not return the call.” As Drury shares, “According to the CBS report, Treasury Department Deputy Inspector General for Investigations Tim Camus said, “This scam impacts everybody. We’ve had very, very educated and intelligent people fall for it.” Camus also said that in the history of scams that he’s had to deal with, this is the “largest, most pervasive impersonation scam in the history of the agency.” According to the article, “So far, at least 366,000 people have reported receiving a call and more than 3,000 of them have been fooled by the scam, giving up a total of $15.5 million. The CBS report stated that Camus received a scam call demanding money on his home phone. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for who the scammers are calling, so once again I urge you to stay alert.” Drury also shares the entire story of how the scam unfolded for a senior pastor at Providence Baptist church in Charlotte, North Carolina. The scammers got $16,000 from him. The entire article can be found at /the-most-ruthless-irs-tax-scam-in-history/ About Lance Drury Tax Attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R.
