Unpaid Debt and Tax Scams
You receive an unsolicited email or phone call to make a payment for taxes, fines, bail money, utility bills, or other unexpected fees. The scammer may claim you owe a past due amount because of miscalculation of your taxes. They may claim that you're owed a tax refund, prize, or rebate, but must first make a payment for administrative fees with a gift card.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, never give out personal information. Report the call to the IRS using their "IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting" web page or by calling the IRS at 800-366-4484.
