IRS scams are targeting many Central Florida seniors

It can happen to anyone, any age, but 66 percent of seniors in this country have been targeted by some sort of phone or work at home job scheme.

James Foscolo of Home Instead Senior Care said seniors are becoming more vulnerable to con artists because seniors are using technology “they are uncertain of.”

“They’re using a lot of technology and maybe they’re not the most versed,” he said.

According to Foscolo, the top scam hitting Central Florida seniors is still the IRS Treasury Department tax collection scheme.

Foscolo’s father Ralph has experienced the calls at least three times.

Ralph Foscolo said the calls were vague but “aggressive.”
