In January of 2018, I received a robocall telling me that the IRS was suing me for fraud and that I must call the phone number provided right away. I deleted the voicemail and blocked the number so that I would not receive another annoying call.  Then in February, I received a similar robocall telling me basically the same thing. Again, I deleted and blocked the number. Then around March 20th, I received a third Robocall call professing the same fraud. This time I saved the voicemail so that I could show it to the authorities. On April 5th I received an email from a CPA (whom I don’t use) asking me to download and open a “DocuSign” file for my taxes.  Again, this was a phishing attack. What do you do when you are being bombarded by cybercriminals who are trying to penetrate your financial defenses. How can you win against such constant attacks? In this episode of Working the Web to Win, we will explore the current rash of IRS scams and cyber-fraud that takes place in the new year, and we will provide prudent measures you can implement to ensure the protection of your financial data and identity.
