Scams

In February 2018 Scammers have been using tax payers information to file fraudulent returns and having the money deposited into the bank account of the tax payer. They will then call the tax payer and impersonate the IRS and demand the money be returned, via wire transfer, digital payment, or other anonymous means. If the victim hands over the money, they are then liable to the real IRS to return the money to the government also.

In January and February of 2013 a solicitation form was mailed to most incorporated addresses in Oregon by a company who is NOT affiliated with any government agency of any kind. This form looks similar to that of the Oregon Secretary of State, and quotes laws and codes, and asks for $125 payable to Corporate Records Service 3760 Market St. NE #104 Salem, OR 97301-1826 by February 27th. This is NOT in any way associated with Oregon governance, and is a private party asking for your information and money. They attained your information through the Oregon Secretary of State, because all corporate listings are public information. Because the form states in the small print that they are not a government agency, there is no illegal activity here and the authorities have no grounds to shut them down. The Oregonian reported a story as well.
