NPR's Larry Abramson reports on a scam that targets African Americans with a claim that they are due reparations for their ancestors' slavery. The con artists charge a fee for filing with the IRS for the payments, which are entirely fictitious. The IRS warns against this flim-flam and others that spring up around tax time.
