Warning! IRS phone scam

One of our local businesses told us that they received a call this morning from people identifying themselves as being from the IRS, telling them that if they didn’t call & pay a tax bill within 24 hours, that we would be arrested.  The return phone # they left is 775-410-3947.

These are scams, never pay over the phone or respond to this type of phone call, just hang up.  If you have any question whether you actually owe money, whether it is the IRS, power company, or any other organization just make the call directly to the organization in question after looking up the phone number.  Do not call any number a caller has provided to you, this is part of the scam, looking it up yourself is the only way you can be sure your calling a legitimate phone number.
