Beware of IRS Phone Scams
Several residents received scam phone calls during the week from callers claiming to be with the IRS where the caller stated they owed money to the Government, and if they did not pay they would be arrested. The residents recognized the calls as scams, and hung up on the caller. BVPD reminds resident to please be very cautious of any phone calls where the caller requests money or your personal information.
According to the IRS, “The IRS will always send taxpayers a written notification of any tax due via the U.S. mail. The IRS never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone. For more information or to report a scam, go to www.irs.gov and type “scam” in the search box.”
