IRS phone scam reappears in area: Officials stress phone vigilance as IRS imposters make comeback


BEMIDJI -- A phone scam in which criminals claim to be agents with the IRS is once again rearing its head and officials are reminding citizens the best thing to do is hang up.

Barb Grieman, senior vice president of the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota, said the scam, which comes up periodically, involves scammers calling victims using technology to make it appear as if the call is coming from the IRS. The scammer will then try to coerce the victim into making payments that are hard to trace.
