REGION 8 (KAIT) - Region 8 residents awaiting those much talked about rebate checks should be on the lookout for a scam making its way around the nation.
The IRS is warning taxpayers to stay alert regarding scams for their payment checks.
The scam goes something like this:
A consumer receives a call from a person identifying themself as an IRS employee. The caller then says he needs the target's bank account information for direct deposit of the funds. If the consumer refuses, he/she is then told that the consumer is ineligible for the rebate.
This, of course, is false.
