Reports of scams have been coming in to the Carrollton Police Department.  According to Chief Bobby Turner, residents say they have received calls from an individual claiming to be with the  IRS.

The caller, who reportedly speaks with a foreign accent, is trying to obtain information about the citizens.  In some cases, a call back number of 347-949-7315 has been left.

Turner encourages everyone to report such activity and to remember never give out banking or personal information over the phone.
