Protect yourself from phone calls and emails regarding:
*Calls or emails seeking personal information, demands for immediate payment, threatening arrest, criminal prosecution, and account seizure. In some cases, the caller ID may seem to be from a legitimate source.
*Calls or emails indicating a refund or other payment to you is ready to be sent, but only if you provide personal or bank account information.
*Calls or emails asking to verify tax return information in order for the return to be processed.
