In the latest scam with Social Security numbers (SSN), scammers threaten to suspend or cancel your SSN.

Scammers may mention overdue taxes in addition to threatening to cancel the personโ€™s SSN. If taxpayers receive a call threatening to suspend their SSN for an unpaid tax bill, they should just hang up.

The IRS and its authorized private collection agencies will never:
โ€ข Call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, iTunes gift card or wire transfer. The IRS does not use these methods for tax payments.
โ€ข Ask a taxpayer to make a payment to a person or organization other than the U.S. Treasury.
โ€ข Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have the taxpayer arrested for not paying.
โ€ข Demand taxes be paid without giving the taxpayer the opportunity to question or appeal the amount owed.
