Protect Yourself – Avoid Scams

December 2015

Fake IRS scam calls have been received by local residents. The current fraudulent number is 845-789-4421. The fraudulent party calls and will even leave a message on a home phone stating that they have reviewed the 2008 – 2012 taxes and the person owes money.
When the person calls back, the fake IRS representative claims that this is the person’s “last chance “ to pay up.
The fake IRS claims that the issue has “already gone to legal”
They demand the following:

  • The person cannot change their phone number.
  • The person can not disclose this information to anyone.
  • The person must pay into a specific bank account to pay the “past due taxes.”
  • If the person refuses, they threaten to have the person “hauled off to jail.”

Avoid fraud and do not respond to this scam call.
