Scammers posing as IRS agents targeting west Michigan residents

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- It's being called one of the greatest scams the Internal Revenue Service has ever seen and it's hitting people in west Michigan. The IRS inspector general says scammers are calling thousands of taxpayers claiming they owe back taxes and are threatening arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver's license unless payment is made immediately using a prepaid debit card or wire transfer. Officials believe scammers have made off with more than a million dollars from victims in nearly every state.
