ANOTHER SCAM TARGETS LOCAL RESIDENTS

ANOTHER SCAM TARGETS LOCAL RESIDENTS

The scammers are hard at work trying to separate you from your money. Last week, another Morongo Basin resident received a phone call from a man claiming to be from the IRS Tech Department. The caller said the business owner owed a substantial amount of money, and if the owner didn’t pay up over the phone, the IRS would send out the Sheriff to shut down the business. This is a scam. First of all, the IRS NEVER initiates its first contact with taxpayers over the phone, by fax, OR by e-mail. Furthermore, the IRS doesn’t take payments over the phone. And being a government agency, the IRS moves very slowly; it’s not going to immediately shut down your business. If you have any questions about the legitimacy of a communication from “the IRS,” call 800-366-4484.
