Don't Fall Victim to Fake IRS Telephone Scam
Thursday, 16 April 2015
Newark — Sheriff Armando Fontoura today issued a consumer alert providing taxpayers with tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS. Sheriff Fontoura stated that numerous local residents have contacted our department to report callers, many of whom identify themselves as Essex County sheriff’s officers, who demand money or may say you have a refund due and try to trick you into sharing your private information. “These people are con artists who can sound convincing when they call,” Fontoura said. “The scam artists may know a lot about you, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the Internal Revenue Service or our department is calling you. They use fake names and bogus IRS or police identification badge numbers. The scammers frequently claim that they possess an arrest warrant for their victims if they fail to pay immediately. Do not be deceived by these threatening phone calls.”
