There is a phone scam going on  right now . I spent over 30 years working for the Treasury Dept. and some people are calling people claiming they owe back taxes on their Federal student  tuition for their children. No such tax . If you get this kind of call ,hang up and  contact the IRS.

Also there is  an email scam  going on involving all banks . If you do your banking on line , beware of  emails being sent to you supposeldly sent to you by your  bank.

Mine happens to  be Bank of America , telling me I needed to log in   and they had an alert for me  for me to verify my identity.  I promptly called  customer service and they can search their data base to see if they sent you that email. Turns out they did not send it and put an immediate  alert on all my accounts , even though  they monitor the accounts  24/7.They also requested I forward this email. I read the  email to the customer service person  word for word and told her there  were several  links to click onto .I don't do links in  emails. She told me it was a suspicious email . She also said I was correct , that there was no need for me to verify who I was.

Just be beware of these emails  being sent to you by your bank. When in  doubt, call customer service. Better to be safe than sorry.  I had too much experience  dealing with ID theft in my job.
