A band of identity thieves operating in the US is offering taxpayers false
tax rebates in order to steal their personal information, the US Internal
Revenue Service has warned.
According to one scheme, AP reports, the gangs contact taxpayers by
telephone an claim that they can only receive a rebate by furnishing bank
account information in order to obtain a direct deposit.
The IRS emphasised that it did not collect information on the telephone and
that at the present time there was no legislation in place offering tax rebates.
Last week the US government approved tax rebates of $600 (£302) and $1200 for
individuals and couples respectively, and another $300 per child.
