IRS Phone Scam Calling Local Residents

February 13th, 2018 by

IRS phone scamA popular scam across the country, is now affecting Monticello residents.

Telephone calls, impersonating the internal revenue service, have been received in Drew County, recently, according to MPD chief Eddy Deaton.

IRS.com describes the scam this way….
“IRS-Impersonation Telephone Scams A sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers has been making the rounds throughout the country.”
“Callers claim to be IRS employees, using fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. They may know a lot about their targets, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling.”
“Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a gift card or wire transfer. Victims may be threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting. Victims may be told they have a refund due to try to trick them into sharing private information. If the phone isn’t answered, the scammers often leave an “urgent” callback request.”
