The West Windsor Police Department issued the following message today:
Advisory: IRS scam calls continue. If you receive such a call hang up & do not supply information.
We are rebroadcasting this alert periodically for the public to be aware of this scam. The person on the other end of the phone can be very convincing that they are real IRS investigators. Do not fall victim to their attempts to scam you out of thousands of dollars. These calls generate from overseas and are extremely difficult to investigate. Do not answer their questions or return any calls left on your voicemail.
According to the IRS, the agency generally first contacts taxpayers by mail—not by phone—concerning owed taxes, and it will never ask for payments using a prepaid debit card, money order, or wire transfer.
If you want to file a report we have included links to do so below or you may contact the Treasury Inspector General at 800-366-4484.
