Fake IRS Agent Scammed Student Out Of Nearly $8,000 In Gift Cards

Over the past three years, impostors posing as Internal Revenue Service officials have scammed students out of more than $49 million. The students are hoaxed into believing that they will be arrested if they don’t pay a fictional “federal student tax.” Caisse Davis, a journalism major at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, told CBS News that she typically doesn’t answer calls from unfamiliar numbers, but she did answer when the mysterious caller rang back for a second time.
