[ARCHIVED] IRS issues notice on Scams & Homeland Security Warns on Disinformation

The individual and family ‘economic impact payments’ that come as a part of the CARES Act are going out to Federal Income Taxpayers and others, all around the country. Inevitably, scammers see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) wants to make citizens aware of the danger, alert them to be on guard, provide information on what to watch out for, and let the IRS know if they have been targeted or victimized by any lowlifes. The U.S. Treasury’s Inspector General for Tax Administration has posted a notice online.

This includes a portal that can be used to report scamming and the scammers. You may want to share this with your citizens.

Also to share, and closer to home, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness hosts the webpage, which features unclassified intelligence products on COVID-19 disinformation, details about scams that New Jersey residents and visitors might be susceptible to, and cybersecurity alerts regarding potential threats to individuals and businesses caused by the pandemic
