CHILLICOTHE, MO – The Chillicothe Police Department said in a press release Tuesday that reports have been received regarding a scam in which the caller claims to work for the IRS or U.S. Treasury.
The caller claims there is a problem with your taxes or unpaid taxes. They then reportedly threaten arrest by law enforcement if respondents don’t provide them with the information they want.
Chillicothe officers say hang up, and do not give them information. Look up the IRS online for more information and never give out personal information over the phone.
