                                                          IRS SCAM

The Milliken Police Department has received reports related to a telephone scam in which the caller purports to be an
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) representative.
Using intimidation tactics, the caller tries to take control of the situation from the beginning. The caller advises the recipient
of the call that the IRS has charges against them and threatens legal action and arrest. The caller will continue to use tactics
to gain personnel information.

If you receive a call similar to this follow these tips:

  • Resist the pressure to act quickly
  • Do not give out any personal information to the caller
  • Use caution when asked to use a specific payment method. The IRS would not require a specific payment method     
    such as a moneypak card or wire transfer
  • If you feel threatened, contact the Milliken Police Department
  • File a complaint at www.IC3.gov or call the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1-800-366-4484.

If you have any further questions regarding this and/or other scams please contact Chief Benito Garcia at the
Milliken Police Department (970) 587-2772 ext.5012
