Criminals posing as IRS agents target taxpayers

There's a new warning about a huge phone scam targeting more than 20,000 taxpayers.

Criminals posing as IRS agents or police officers call taxpayers claiming they owe money and must pay at once.

Some demand payment in cash, others with pre-paid debit cards or wire transfers.

The IRS says it never asks for payments that way.

Victims have so far lost a total of more than $1 million.
