IRS Issues New Warning On Scams Targeting Students And Parents For Back To School Season

snip~
With back to school season in full swing, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued a new warning for taxpayers to be particularly vigilant for scammers looking for opportunities to take advantage of students and parents.

In particular, the IRS reminds taxpayers to be on the lookout for IRS impersonators calling students and demanding that they wire money immediately to pay a fake “federal student tax.” There is no such tax.

The shame of this is that the dumbing down of America has been so effective that apparently mind numbed robots fall for this.

This is what happens when you have big government tell you "were here to help you" all your life.  Do as government tells you or they will take it all away.

That's it exactly! They are so afraid of losing free money, they totally lose all critical thinking skills and react emotionally.
