The callers may claim that you owe education taxes or that your Windows computer is hacked.&nbsp; This time of year these scams tend to increase, and it's good to keep in mind that they are an ongoing issue. The scams are quite sophisticated, and may provide a phone number and/or a website that appears valid.<br /><br />Keep in mind that legitmate entities like the IRS or FBI do not:<br /><br /></p> <ul> <li>Call to demand immediate payment or call about taxes owed without first having contacted you by mail and provide an opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.</li> <li>Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.</li> <li>Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.</li> <li>Threaten to contact the police or other law enforcement to have you arrested for not paying.</li> </ul> <p><br />For more information about these scams, visit: <a href="https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/scam-alerts">https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/scam-alerts</a><br /><br />Specific information about the Student Tax issue is available on the IRS website is at <a href="https://www.irs.gov/uac/newsroom/irs-warns-of-latest-scam-variation-involving-bogus-federal-student-tax">https://www.irs.gov/uac/newsroom/irs-warns-of-latest-scam-variation-involving-bogus-federal-student-tax</a><br /><br />As always, if you are unsure about whether a call or an email is legitimate, you can contact the <a href="http://computing.wharton.upenn.edu" title="Wharton Student Computing">Student Computing Team</a>.<br /><br /></p> Fri, 10 Nov 2017 01:31:32 GMT consultant (Wharton Computing Student Support ) https://spike.wharton.upenn.edu/forums/index.cfm?method=read&forum_id=495&entry_id=10977 Group Study Room Policy Reminder https://spike.wharton.upenn.edu/forums/index.cfm?method=read&forum_id=495&entry_id=470 With group projects and mid-terms in full swing we wanted to take this time to remind you of the policy for using group study rooms.
