Is the 800-829-0922 Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC) Letter a Scam?

I got the Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service mail below asking me to call 1-800-829-0922. I do not know if this is a scam or not. Can anyone help me determine if the mail is legit or a scam? I know there are a lot of scammers these days, so I always make sure I verify the authenticity of a letter, email, or text message before doing anything.

    SCAM. I received the exact same letter. How likely, people all get the same letter with the same facts and figures. For me ignoring it. Scammers come in all sizes and shapes. But to answer is your choice. If you call, don't give them any info. If they ask, think about it, the IRS has name, address, SS#. That should tell you all you need to know. Good luck in your decision.
