With Tax Season Comes Scammers

It’s that time of year when people are starting to do their taxes.   It’s something we have to do every single year, we have to get those returns done and in to the IRS.  However, it seems criminals come out of the wood works trying to get your hard earned money.  The Amarillo Police Department is warning of scammers.

Financial scam

The Amarillo Police Department has already received multiple phone calls from citizens about getting phone calls from scammers threatening them with jail time if they don’t pay outstanding taxes.

These scammers are able to spoof local numbers to make it look like it is a call coming from the police department or a business or even the IRS.

If you receive a call like this hang up.  If you are concerned call the IRS directly.  Never, ever, give your personal information out to someone over the phone.  The IRS will never call and demand immediate payment.  You will always receive a letter in the mail.  The Amarillo Police Department will also not call to enforce an outstanding taxes.
