Scammers Continue To File False Physician Returns

Physicians continue to be targeted under a tax return scam that began in 2014. ArMA reports more than 50 physicians have notified them that they have been victimized by the cyber scam.  Some have been victimized more than once.

Under the scam, criminals us fraudulent federal income tax returns using physician names, addresses and Social Security numbers to file electronically for refunds.

If you are a victim, please contact PCMS Executive Director Bill Fearneyhough, billf5199@gmail.com.  He will forward your full name, home address and phone number to ArMA’s Chic Older.  Older is working directly with Arizona IRS to monitor the situation.
