The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts has issued the following message:
We recently became aware of a scam involving an individual falsely claiming to represent the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, or in some cases the Texas Department of Transportation. The caller claims the taxpayer has a tax liability or other issue and requests credit card information.
The Comptroller's office does not request payment details, such as credit card numbers or electronic check information, over the telephone.
If you receive one of these calls, please do not provide your personal confidential credit card or bank information.
