It has been reported that more and more people are receiving these irritating IRS scam calls and many people are falling prey to them. Here's a new app that may help.

The new app is called the Hiya App and is available for Android and iOS users. It is supposed to help block any IRS calls that may come to your phone.

An alert will come to your phone should an IRS scam call try to come through. Before alerting you to the call, the call will be blocked as well.

The way the app works is that it determines if a phone number is making a lot of calls, based on a certain algorithm. It can also tell if it is a bogus and fraudulent phone number.

The app is FREE and can be downloaded here.
