Police warn of fake IRS calls

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Thomasville Police Department is cautioning citizens about phone calls they might receive from people pretending to be agents from the IRS. 

TPD's Community Relations Lieutenant Eric Hampton said these callers are saying that they are with the IRS and that the people they are calling is being sued by the IRS.

 They go on to ask for personal information such as socials security numbers, date of birth and other information that would allow someone to commit frauds. 

We urge people to be careful and to be aware of these calls, Hampton said.

No information should be given to anyone acting as IRS over the phone. Citizens can always follow up with the Police Department about calls of this nature.
