Information on Fraudulent Phone Calls

January 7, 2020

During this time of year there is an increase in reports of fraud on individual’s bank accounts. We also receive numerous reports of individuals purporting to be with the IRS and asking for information or even telling people that there is a warrant for their arrest. This is not the practice of the IRS and they do not place such calls.

If you receive a call that seems suspicious in nature please do not divulge any information. Financial institutions should be called directly at a number that is known to you to
verify if these calls are legitimate or not. Please also consider frequently changing your passcodes on these accounts for extra security.

If you feel that you are the victim of an IRS scam please call: 1-800-908-4490
