Tax resolution attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR, shares important information about how engaging in conversation with scammers gives them more information that can help them in their criminal efforts, advising that no matter how smart one thinks they are, the scammers are smarter.
Fairhope, AL, August 31, 2018: Tax Attorney John Willis, CEO and founder of IRSALLSTAR.com, recently posted a new article on his website entitled “Don’t Think You Can Outsmart Scammers,” in which Mr. Willis recommends simply hanging up the phone.
Willis writes, “It’s been tried more times than you can imagine. A scammer calls to try to get you to part with some of your hard-earned money by telling you that you owe the IRS back taxes. You’ve heard about the scams and in a way, you’ve almost been waiting for them to call you.” He continues adding, “That’s because you think you’re going to outsmart them. I’m telling you now, don’t engage and do not think you’re going to be the one who gets the best of them. They will always get more out of you than you will get out of them.”
“Fact is,” says Willis, “they (the criminals) are always on fact finding missions, even if they don’t get money out of you, they may get something even more valuable: more personal information that allows them to steal your identity and get into your financial accounts or file taxes under your name.” Willis goes on to say, “I am reprinting some valuable information from one of my favorite sources, Forbes.com author, Kelly Phillips. I’m only printing four of her six reasons not to engage.”
Among the four points Willis shares is the most important “Remember that identity theft isn’t just about getting money out of you one time or stealing a tax refund check, it’s an entire industry. Your data typically isn’t getting stolen in one fell swoop: your identity profile is being put together piece by piece. Key bits of information about you may be stored, repackaged and sold from one scammer to the next. The fact that you answered the phone and were willing to engage? That’s valuable to scammers who might try it again later – or sell your number to the highest bidder.”
