As tax season approaches for 2017, a new series of phone scams have been targeted unsuspecting Americans and costing them thousands.

A major scam has been reporting in which foreign scammers are leaving voice messages for people. After saying they have a warrant for your arrest due to unpaid taxes, they quickly try and get you to give them important personal information and money. Do NOT do it.
