IRS Scam

12/14/2016

The age old IRS scam is going around Pratt again.  Yesterday a citizen received a call from one claiming to be the IRS.  The caller stated if $2,000 was not paid the individual would be arrested.  The demands were not met, the caller called again and threatened to have their driver’s license suspended and were notified officers were on their way to arrest them.

 

Fortunately no money was sent in this scam.

 

It is very important to just hang up on these callers.  The Internal Revenue Service will never call.  Anyone you do not know calling for money is a scam.  Do not talk to strangers on the phone, at your door, or anywhere, it is not safe.
