The Mississippi Public Service Commission is warning consumers to be on guard against a telephone scam which uses the IRS as bait to obtain money and personal information from victims. The scam calls come from someone claiming that the victim owes money to the IRS and will be arrested, deported or have a business or driver’s license suspended if they do not immediately pay through a wire transfer or pre-loaded debit card, according to a PSC statement to media.
