Spring Grove police warn of IRS telephone scam

SPRING GROVE – The Spring Grove Police Department is warning residents of a telephone scam claiming to represent the Internal Revenue Service.

The caller claims the recipient owes money to the IRS and sometimes the caller identification says it is the IRS calling, according to the notice.

The IRS only sends taxpayers written notifications of taxes due via the U.S. postal service, and it never asks for credit card numbers, personal identification numbers, passwords or other similar access information over the phone, the notice said.

Recipients of calls like this should contact the Treasury Inspector General’s Office at 800-366-4484. The Spring Grove Police Department also can be contacted at 815-675-2596 with any questions.
