There’s a good article in today’s Wall Street Journal (5/6/15), US News section, “IRS Steps Up Cybercrime Unit with New Investigations Unit” by Aruna Viswanatha. The article states that one quarter of all IRS criminal investigations are ID Theft cases. Protect yourself by protecting your personal information. I will look into planning another “Scams, Cons, Fraud and ID Theft” workshop here at the Foothills Substation sometime this year to get you the latest information and expertise from our APD White Collar Crimes detectives on how to protect yourselves. I hope you get a chance to look up the article.
