Every few months hackers find a way to disrupt our lives and take either our money or personal information.

Well, this time we are ahead of the game and stopping scammers before they hit us.

If you are receiving calls from someone claiming to be a part of the IRS, proceed with caution. Word is they have gotten several people's credit card information by threatening to arrest them if they don't make payments over the phone.

They will press you to either use a card on hand or send money through a prepaid account.

Beware: the caller may know the last 4 digits of your social security number. If they just blurt that information out, they're likely a scammer.

To complain about tax-related scams please contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at

Don't get caught slipping.
