I am receiving word from community members about being contacted by phone by callers saying they are with the IRS and are suing the caller and instructing the citizen to call back immediately. The IRS does not call citizens directly or operate in this manner.
APD Crime Prevention just came out with a great flier, “Telephone Scam Awareness” to help citizens stay alert to telephone scams. This flier is available in the lobby at the Foothills Substation, 12800 Lomas Boulevard NE (between Juan Tabo and Tramway). Come by and pick up a copy anytime Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
