Indian police arrest 70 for targeting Americans in tax scam

According to police in Mumbai, the yearlong scam involved running fake call centers which sent voice mail messages telling U.S. nationals to call back because they owed back taxes.Those who called back and believed the threats would fork out thousands of dollars to “settle” their case, Mumbai police officer Parag Marere said Thursday.

We’ve received at least a couple of such calls over the past few months.

The IRS will only contact you by mail.
