Summary justice yes. But...

But it is a bit odd how so many people fell for the scam. I find it hard to believe that they were all genuine tax dodgers who thought that their game was up. At the very least if someone phones you up suggesting that they are the IRS and that you owe tax then you would have expected the targets to request written proof before ponying up without a challenge?
