Monmouth Police Department Investigator Josh Kramer Offers Advise on Identifying Tax Scams


Tax season scams are out there and Monmouth Police Department Investigator Josh Kramer reminds that the government does not accept any type of gift card as a form of payment:

“Just remember that the government doesn’t accept any iTunes cards or app cards or Amazon cards from local businesses. Those obviously ramp up the first of the year. Be aware they are out there. Also, you may get text messages and emails saying there is something wrong with your 2022 tax filings. It will look legit, but if you really dig into it, the government is not going to send you an email; they are not going to send you a text. They surely are not going to threaten you with any type of force or the Social security Administration. Disconnect the call. Disconnect communication with those people.”
