Iowans are being reminded to beware of phone calls from someone claiming to be with the Internal Revenue Service.
One of the would-be scammers called KSIB Radio in Creston and the entire call was recorded.
OC……..”lawsuit before” :09
The radio station employee said no, so the caller began with the scam.
OC………..as your tax. :19
The scam caller didn’t like being questioned.
OC……….”very carefully”. :14
The scammer claimed the IRS was owed nearly 39-hundred dollars which needed to be paid immediately.
When he was told he’d called a radio station and that the conversation was being recorded, he hung up.
Iowans are warned to not give this sort of caller any personal information and to just hang up.
The I-R-S does not conduct business of this sort on the phone. It’s done by mail.
