THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION IS WARNING AMERICANS THAT CON ARTISTS FILE FAKE TAX RETURNS FOR THEM

(CNN) – It’s tax season, and that can mean … Scam season.

The Better Business Bureau is getting the word out with tax identity theft awareness week.

Most people groan about filing their taxes.

But, for a con artist, it can be a chance to steal your return.

All a scammer needs is your social security number.

The BBB also says to be aware of IRS impostors.

It says, if someone calls you and demands money immediately, don’t pay it.

Tax identity theft awareness week runs February 3rd to the 17th.
