Don’t let a person claiming to be from the IRS fool you out of money. The latest scam to have telephones ringing in the Illinois Valley tries to get you to send money or get arrested.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says by Friday morning they had received over a dozen calls from people saying they received the call.

What happens is a person claiming to be from the IRS tells you that you owe the IRS and must pay the money within 45 minutes to avoid arrest. Don’t fall for it.

Bernabei says you should to make your elderly relatives and friends aware.
