IRS scam recirculates locally

(KAIR)--A regularly occurring scam is again reported locally, with the Atchison Police Department sending a reminder regarding fake IRS phone calls.

Police, in a social media post, are reminding residents to never give out personal, or banking information, over the telephone.

The scam is an attempt to gain such personal information, with the callers falsely representing themselves as IRS agents.

The phone number sometimes showing on caller ID falsely indicates that the call has been made by the IRS.

Past reports of the scam indicate that the caller demands immediate payment of uncollected taxes, and may threaten to have the would-be victim arrested if they don't pay.

The IRS has, in past releases, clarified that it will never place such phone calls.
