It can’t be repeated too often, it seems: don’t give out your valuable personal information unless you (1) initiated the contact and (2) trust the person to whom you are giving the information. Never, under any circumstances, give personal information to someone who calls you unsolicited that says they are from the IRS or any other government agency. Chances are they are trying to scam you. No, I’ll go further than that: they are undoubtedly trying to scam you.
Please read all about it in my July, 2016, Estate Planning Law Report, posted in the publications section at deconcinimcdonald.com. Then spread the word. If enough people are alerted to the fact that the people making these calls are thieves, maybe they will stop, because no one will fall for their lies.
