NORTH COAST - Another phone scam to report on the North Coast.
A local resident said around 8 am Friday morning, an alleged representative from the IRS told him the government was auditing the victim and that he needed to call back on a New York phone number. The victim didn’t fall for the fraud but did a reverse phone look up of the number and found it to be private and that the service would give no more information without a fee.
Law enforcement continues to warn the public, the IRS will never call out of the blue to have you call them and never will it involve you sending or paying for anything over the phone. Report all fraud to the police.
