Assemblyman reminds constituents to beware of phone scams
Just in time the for the holidays, scammers are making telephone calls.
Assemblyman Marc W. Butler, R-118, Newport, said Monday he has received reports from constituents that they were being targeted by an Internal Revenue Service telephone scam.
The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information.
“Lately, crooks have been posing as the IRS and demanding payment from innocent people in order to avoid arrest,” said Butler. “I encourage my constituents to be vigilant and to never give out personal or financial information to these criminals. And as always, my district office is here to help if you are uncertain of suspicious calls.”
The legislator recommends that people who believe they have been a victim of an IRS phone call scam contact their local police department.
