The IRS is warning the public about a phone scam in which callers, claiming to be from the IRS, tell intended victims they owe taxes and must pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. The scammers threaten those who refuse with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver's license. The IRS usually first contacts people by mail-not by phone-about any unpaid taxes. They will not ask for payment using a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. The agency will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone. If you get such a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, hang up and call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.

The unanimous opinion endorsed the argument that advice high governmental officials receive be protected from disclosure.
