The Kansas City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation notified MBA (Missouri Bankers Association) about the rise of fraud scams nationwide, including the latest trend of criminals ” coaching” victims.
Recently, an elderly victim in Missouri was contacted by an individual claiming to be a federal agent and demanding the individual pay back taxes owed to the IRS. The caller instructed the victim on how to wire money to a specific account and how to circumvent inquiries and lie to bank employees when questioned about the wire transfer. “Coaching victims” is another way for thieves to manipulate and extort an individual while evolving and adjusting to counter any safeguards in place.
