EPD warns of phone scam
Evansville police are warning of a phone scam that is making the rounds again locally. They say you may get a call from someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service and telling you that the I.R.S. is filing a lawsuit against you.
A number to call is provided and upon calling they seek personal information and may demand money be sent to settle the “law suit.” According to police, the I.R.S. does not call by phone and threaten law suits or ask for your Social Security Number and other personal information.
