Fraudulent IRS scam
The Internal Revenue Service is reminding tax payers that the agency will not make a phone call to demand immediate payment of taxes, without first sending a bill in the mail. So if you receive a phone call from an individual saying they are from the IRS or Federal Revenue Service.....hang up. Homer Geoffrey Jones of Newport on Wednesday to Deputy Hollis Emmons he received a call from an individual who said he was with the IRS . The caller told Jones he owed $200 in back taxes, so Jones gave the caller his bank account number. Thirty minutes later the scam artist called back asking for an additional $200. Later in the day, Jones checked his bank account and discovered an additional $199 had been taken. At that point Jones became suspicious and filed a complaint with the sheriff's office.
