A Crossville woman told Sheriff’s Deputies that she has received two phone calls from someone claiming to be with the IRS. The caller tells the victim that she faces a lawsuit if she does not pay taxes that she owes. That’s when the victim says she hangs up. The scammers are calling from 845-928-2408 and 888-741-3390. The scammers usually ask the victim to send them a prepaid money card. They can be very convincing as they often reveal a lot of personal information about their targets. The IRS says you should hang up on such calls and you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade. You can also contact the IRS directly and always consult your tax expert before you answer any personal information from such callers and never send prepaid money cards to anyone you do not know.
