Financial Institutions Are Not Immune From Scam Artists

Posted on November 18, 2014

The IRS recently issued a fraud alert for international financial institutions.  Scam artists posing as IRS employees have contacted financial institutions seeking account holder identities and financial account information.

The IRS reports that the scam artists usually contact the international financial institutions through the use of emails or websites.

The IRS also reports that it does not require financial institutions to provide specific account holder identity information, passwords or similar confidential account access information.

If you are a regular reader of our blog, we have reported many efforts by scam artists to take advantage of individuals here, here and here. However, it appears that scam artists have now expanded their efforts to include financial institutions.
