Sylvester police warn of IRS scam

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Sylvester Police want you to watch out for an IRS scam.

One woman lost more than $800 when someone claiming to be from IRS legal affairs called demanding money.

"They told this victim that she was going to be arrested within the hours, and this is not true. This will not happen. So if you have any problems with this please contact your local police department first," said Kenneth Washington, Sylvester Police Department Investigator.

Neither the IRS nor Georgia Power will call you and demand immediate payment.
