HARWICH RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN RECEIVING IRS PHONE SCAM CALLS
We have received several calls from Harwich residents concerned about calls they have received from individuals claiming to be from the IRS. The caller states they represent the IRS and if the resident doesn't comply with their request, they would be arrested by the Harwich Police Department.
THESE CALLS ARE SCAMS DO NOT GIVE THEM PERSONAL INFORMATION!
IRS Phone Scam Red Flags:
• Call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
• Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
• Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
• Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
• Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.
You may also report instances of IRS-related phishing attempts and fraud to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1-800-366-4484. ... See MoreSee Less
