Several residents on the South Plains continue to report the scam phone calls claiming to be calling from the Internal Revenue Service. The caller is very demanding and intimidating.
They demand money immediately on a tax bill due to the IRS or they are going to begin a criminal investigation.
Once again we remind you that the Internal Revenue Service does not operate in this manner. You will always be notified in writing prior to receiving a phone call from the IRS. We also want to point out that the IRS does not have the authority to conduct criminal investigations or any law enforcement authority.
You are reminded to never give any information on the phone. If you have received one of these calls you may contact your local authorities or the Internal Revenue Service.
