Authorities arrest dozens of IRS call center scammers

Federal authorities have arrested nearly two dozen people across the United States and 32 others at call centers across India, related to a scam involving people pretending to be with the IRS.

The operators threatened people with arrest, imprisonment, fines or deportation if they did not pay taxes.

The government says the scam has tricked at least 15,000 people into shelling out more than $300 million dollars.
