Have been starting to get the 'Tax Agent' scam calls from various numbers over the last couple of weeks.   Just got one now via Viber, so it looks like they are now moving to other access methods also.


Calls always start the same.  5 or so seconds of silence, then a rush of sound (call centre background) followed by 'bla bla bla Tax Brokers'.

Yeah I just removed viber because of it.  Sick enough of calls to my cellphone without adding viber to the mix.
