Some of the citizens of the city have reported phone calls from someone claiming to be a representative of the Internal Revenue Service. The caller states that the resident has committed fraud with the IRS and will be arrested by the Sheriff’s Department. This is a scam. Hang up and disregard the caller. DO NOT try to call the number back.
This should be reported to the Inspector General at the IRS at 1-800-366-4484 or via the internet at www.TIGTA.gov.
One of the numbers generated from the caller is 1-888-508-0432. If that number comes up on your caller ID, do not answer.
