Tax Return Fraud Up 400% - Be Aware of The Scams

Tax Return #Fraud is up 400% according to the IRS. Below are the top #Scams to be aware of. Don’t be a victim of identity theft this tax season.

1). Phone Scams – Criminals impersonate #IRS agents and ask for personal information such as SSN and threaten tax payers with fines, liens and arrests if they don’t comply. The IRS will never ask for personal information over the phone so do not be tricked or intimidate into doing so.

2). #Phishing Scams – #Fake emails and websites looking to steal personal information by saying they are the IRS. The IRS will never send an email or a bill about a refund out of the blue. Be very careful about any strange emails.

3). #TaxReturn Preparer Fraud – Beware of tax preparers you’re not familiar with. Do your research online and verify the person preparing your return is legitimate. There are many unscrupulous tax preparers that set up fake operations during tax season to steal personal information from people.

Protect Yourself From Identity Theft During The Holidays

The holiday season is a great time for criminals to take advantage of people. Most everyone does a lot of shopping around the holiday season and this means that most everyone has more exposure to identity theft. Here are a few ways to protect yourself from #identitytheft this holiday season.

1). Check your credit report and public record regularly.

2). Beware of holiday promotional emails. Don’t open any emails or attachments unless you know who the sender is.

3). Don’t give out any personal information over the phone. There are a lot of solicitors, and thieves, that do a lot of cold calling around the holidays.

4). #Shop carefully online. Do your online purchased from vendors you’re familiar with. Be careful when visiting websites that you’re unfamiliar with.

5). Review your bank account statement regularly to make sure there are no unauthorized charges or withdrawals.

6). Use your credit card, not your bank debit card, for #holidaypurchases. Credit cards come with more purchase protection from fraudulent charges.

7). Don’t do any online #shopping in public places, like coffee shops or restaurants. Your information can be intercepted using public wifi.

8). Don’t give out too much information on your social media accounts ( ie. pet names, anniversaries, mother’s maiden name ). People can use your personal information to figure out your passwords.

9). Sign up for identity monitoring. It’ll cost you a little every month but save you a whole bunch if your identity is compromised.

10). Change your #passwords regularly on any financial account. Make sure they’re difficult to figure out. Use capitals, numbers and special characters on all your passwords.

As Americans we all pay taxes and with those tax dollars we all wonder where it goes. Well, at least some of it goes to providing some pretty solid online resources that can really help you out. The United States government has a couple of websites that you can use to inform yourself and take action on protecting your identity. Please do yourself a favor and check them out.

#identitytheft  Protecting Your Personal Information

  Most people know that it’s a matter of “when”, not “if”, their personal information is compromised. It might be from online banking, online purchases or any other website where you have input your personal information. In any case it’s important to check your credit report annually to make sure no one is attempting to procure credit with your good name. See the tips below if you think you’re a victim of identity theft or if your personal information is compromised.

1). Go to Experian.com and get a full credit report for $1
2). Verify that all the information is correct.
3). If you see that someone has tried to get credit in your name then alert the various credit reporting agencies …. Experian.com , Equifax.com, TransUnion.com
4). You will also want to notify your local police department and file a claim
5). Signup with a identity protection service such as Lifelock.com as you might want additional protectionism so this won’t happen in the future.

#creditscore    When your identity is stolen it’s a lengthy process that will take some time to fix. You should contact all the various credit reporting agencies to notify them of this so that when you get credit under your name in the future this won’t affect you. If you’re not a victim of identity theft then it might be a good thing to consider buying some identity protection.

Privacy in America

  Privacy in America is almost extinct. For most of us it’s impossible to be “under the radar” so to speak. Most of us have an email address, postal address, credit cards, bank accounts, utility bills, registered vehicles, mobile phones, and social media accounts to name a few.  Suppose you have been able to avoid having any of these identifying pieces of information … you still have a birth record not to mention surveillance in our country is pervasive. After 9-11 there has been a large push to collect, quantify and monitor as much information as possible by our government and there is an act passed called The Freedom of Information Act that allows public access to much of the government’s collected information. Some may see this as a good or a bad thing but it is inevitable in today’s modern society. To find out what public information is available visit SearchQuarry.com
