IRS Phone Scam

We've received several calls from Village residents about the IRS calling to collect back taxes. The resident is led to believe that if they don’t meet the IRS agent and pay cash, that they will be jailed for their crimes. They even threaten to send the Sheriff to pick the resident up. This is another scam that preys on the right minded citizen. No one wants to be accused of not upholding their responsibilities. The caller may sound official and will make you feel as if you are skirting your obligation. This is another scam to prey on our good citizens. Do not give out any identifying information; end the conversation as soon as you can. For further information regarding this scam, please visit the IRS website at
