Posted by wlpo on March 15, 2016

It’s still tax time meaning scammers are stepping up their game.

Nearly a dozen people called the Ottawa Police Department Monday to say they were got a phone call from a scammer claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The scammer says the intended victim is under investigation for not making a payment to the IRS and will be arrested if they don’t pay the caller.

The IRS won’t call you out of the blue threatening you to make an immediate payment.
