New banking scam targeting expat Americans

The IRS has FATCA thrust upon them,
but I don't think they're too upset about it.
There's a new banking scam targeting overseas Americans and there's not much you can do to protect yourself. Yesterday the IRS issued a warning to FATCA-compliant banks stating that scammers posing as IRS agents are calling banks and requesting confidential account information of US persons for FATCA compliance.
