WTPD has received numerous calls from residents who have been contacted by a scam artist(s) who are identifying themselves as IRS agents. They are demanding you pay them right away, demanding you give them personal information and threatening to have a Police Officer come arrest you unless you pay them.
This is a nationwide scam that is causing many people to become victims of identity theft and/or fraud.
DO NOT give out your personal information over the phone, internet or social media! If you feel you have been a victim of identity theft or another crime, please contact your local Police Department to file a Police report. WTPD non emergency dispatch number 717-762-1145 (24 hours a day).
The tips below are directly from the IRS website.
The real IRS will NOT:
• Initiate contact by phone, email, text or social media to ask for your personal or financial information.
• Call you and demand immediate payment. The IRS WILL NOT CALL about taxes you owe without first mailing you a bill.
• Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For example, telling you to pay with a prepaid debit card.
Be wary if you get a phone call from someone who claims to be from the IRS and demands that you pay immediately. Here are some steps you can take to avoid and stop these scams.
If you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you do:
• Contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. Use TIGTA’s “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” web page to report the incident.
• You should also report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of your report.
If you think you may owe taxes:
• Ask for a call back number and an employee badge number.
• Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS employees can help you.
