Yesterday one of our residents made us aware that she received a phone call from a scammer. The scammer claimed to be with the IRS, and informed the resident that she needed to pay them money over the phone. They claimed that if she failed to do so, she would be arrested.
This type of scam isn’t new, but we want to remind everyone that the IRS will never call you and demand payment over the phone.
If you receive this type of call, do not give out any personal information. The best thing to do is to simply hang up.
