IRS Reiterates Warning of Pervasive Telephone Scam

The police department continues to receive complaints from citizens regarding unsolicited phone calls from the “IRS” demanding payment or that they are entitled to big refunds. This scam has not only affected our tri-state area, but nationwide. Click on the link above for further information. Don’t become another victim!

Another common theme to on-line scams is using gift cards and providing the numbers on the back to an individual for payment.  A legitimate business will NEVER request any payment in the form of a gift card.
