The U.S. Treasury Department, through its Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agency is alerting citizens to some scams. Criminals are doing their best to market an Internet account setup service.

The U.S. federal government agency is asking taxpayers not to share tax or monetary data in order to prevent a scam. IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel reported that criminals are inventing new techniques every day to try to hijack Americans' identities.

Customer accounts on the website are used to review personalized tax transaction information. The bad guys persuade users to apply for unnecessary access support.

In that way, the crooks try to collect tax refund money. Mr. Werfel clarified the existence of several ways that thieves seek to breach the Web site and that the public should be aware of.

IRS Scammers' modus operandi

Among the technological routes that fraudsters pursue, there are mobile telephony, e-mail and different social networks. Authorities advise that account adjustments in the system should be made personally.

Criminals ask citizens for their home addresses, social security numbers and photographs in order to sell or declare illegal taxes. With the information obtained, the fraudsters do their best to carry out banking operations.

The IRS invites its users to report all detected illegalities with a form 14242 through the mail. The complaint should be addressed to the IRS Leaders Development Center in the Office of Promoter Investigations.

The address is Stop MS5040, 24 000 Avila Road, Laguna Niguel, California 92 677-3405 and has a fax number, 877-477-9135.
