Falmouth Police Issue Scam Alert

IRS impersonators actively calling Falmouth residents...

From the Falmouth Police Department:

IRS Impersonators Calling Residents

Scammers are actively calling Falmouth residents and impersonating Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees along with claiming the residents owe money to the government.

The potential victims are then told they must immediately pay the scammer or be subject to arrest.

Please note, the government will not request payment on a Google Play Gift Card, iTunes Gift Card, or any other type of gift card. Nor, will they request any type of bank transfer in the name of another person.

Generally, the IRS will first mail a bill to any taxpayer who owes taxes, therefore the best course of action is to politely end the call.

After the call, be sure to report the incident to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
