IRS SCAM

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

An IRS Telephone Scam is circulating around Malden. We have received several complaints of calls for both land line and wireless calls.  Please remember that this is just a Scam.  If an IRS number calls you threatening that a police officer is going to come to your door or arrest you for outstanding warrants, remember it is just a scam.  This scam also has a call back number that brings you to an official sounding IRS line.  This is not true, it is just a scam.  Never give out your financial or personal information to these callers.  They will often ask for gift cards, wire tranfers and / or money orders as a result of outstanding debt / fines / payments to the IRS.  Please do not engage these callers.  You can click on the link for further information on how to protect yourself.
