Be cautious of unknown numbers.
The government will never call and demand payment over the phone.Even your bank will not request personal information over the phone or email.
If you receive a call asking for payment, simply hang up. It is never a good idea to give out personal information over the phone.

If you receive a threatening or demanding phone call, don’t fall for it! Scammers may claim to be the IRS or even the police. If you are ever suspicious, hang up.
