Tax filing season always brings an increase in identity theft. The IRS has been diligently keeping the public informed of scams that are occurring. In some cases imposters are calling and making collection threats as well as claiming they are the IRS, to gain information that could help them steal that person’s identity.
In light of all of the data breaches that are in the news, it’s no wonder that identity theft is on the rise.
Every time we turn on the news lately or pick up a newspaper we hear of another company being hacked and private customer information being compromised.
