Never give out financial info over the phone.

    As Tax Day Approaches, Watch Out For Phone Scammers
    It's not every day that the Pennsylvania State Police call to say they have a warrant out for your arrest. But that's exactly what happened to me in late March. At least, that's what the caller said was happening.
