One thing we know about scammers — they want money, and they want it fast.That’s why, whatever the con they’re running, they usually ask people to pay a certain way. To convince you to pay, they might pretend to be with the IRS and say you’ll be arrested if you don’t pay back taxes right now.
If you’re not shopping at the i Tunes store, you shouldn’t be paying with an i Tunes gift card.
Other payment methods scammers might ask for include Amazon gift cards, Pay Pal, reloadable cards like Money Pak, Reloadit, or Vanilla, or by wiring money through services like Western Union or Money Gram. U have to pay $678 or we will file a warrent for arrest. The details you give will go into a database that law enforcement uses for investigations. Said it was the fed govt way of collecting payment. You could help law enforcement by reporting what happened. You can choose how much information to give about yourself, and you can give details about the scammer who called you & what he said.
Government offices won’t require you to use these payment methods. I was going to make it in 3 payments but got skeptical when it said buy an i Tunes card. The comments you post here on the blog don't go into the law enforcement database. Today I got in a call with a guy claiming to be from the IRS. Then was put in with another "officer" he was even worse saying I'll be arrested in front of my kids ( this whole thing went down on my truck Bluetooth) finally had enough and next call to me was from a penitentiary in Columbus Ohio. They all sounded foreign yet used names like John Adams... That information helps law enforcement do investigations.
If you get targeted by a scam like this, report it to the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint. Read 10 Ways to Avoid Fraud I AM SO GLAD that I did my research first and saw your reply!! So I started looking on the internet to see if there were scams like this. He demanded payment ASAP for alleged back taxes from 2012 which I had but thought I had paid in full. Both times the scammers used real numbers from real PD's.

the scam happened to me as I was doing my taxes online; all of a sudden the pages were rolling and acting crazy and then of course someone who acted like they were with turbotax who I was using told me it would cost 0.00 on an i Tunes card to fix my computer.
I was stupid I know but if it were not for trying to get my taxes done I may have thought about it more.
A lot of pharmacies also have all types of gift cards including i Tunes so that is where I went to get it because I go there all the time, they are my pharmacy, I felt they would be trustworthy because I was not going to do this online.
RIGHT NOW someone from Advance Cash America is trying to get me to pay 1 and telling me I will be taken to court and the papers have already been filed. I almost fell for it until they said to buy an i Tune card. They were totally insane pushy, telling me if we get disconnected in the phone he'd call the cops.

My 92 yr old mother was scammed into buying itune cards. This low-life called her back and had her give the codes to him.
