Tis the tax season, and residents are being warned about an IRS phone scam

 
Feb27

Tis the tax season, and residents are being warned about an IRS phone scam. Appomattox County Sheriff Barry Letterman said his office has received “numerous” calls about IRS phone scams in the last few weeks, in which a fake IRS representative tries to scare you or shock you into providing personal or financial information, and may even threaten to have you arrested if you don’t pay up. He says this sort of con game is rampant during the tax-filing season, and seniors, who may get caught off-guard, are especially susceptible. All of it is fraudulent, and Letterman warns, anyone who gets a call like this should hang up immediately and call your local law enforcement or the IRS.
