The other scam on the rise is a phone call from the IRS informing you that there is a mistake on your return. The rep sounds legitimate and even has your correct Social Security number. They demand access to your bank account or threaten with arrest. The IRS does not call – they use snail mail in very official looking envelopes with ominous letters.
