What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Government robocalls come in a variety of different forms. The most well-known is the IRS scam, where you are threatened with legal action over unpaid taxes. However, scammers may pose as any number of government agencies. Sometimes it's the FBI calling about some suspicion and you'll need to provide your details immediately. Other times it's the Social Security Administration -- your payments will stop unless you give information or money. Occasionally, it is the INS threatening deportation -- you'll have to leave the country unless you pay a big sum of money. These scammers use fear-based tactics to try and get your information or money. Always be cautious any government communication over the phone. Government agencies typically prefer written communication, and government agencies will never use phone communication to discuss debts, payments, or official legal consequences. Government agencies also typically only accept certified checks as payment method -- the "IRS Agent" who wants you to pay via gift cards is definitely a scammer!
