Delmar Police Department Warn Of IRS Phone Scam

Posted: Updated:

DELMAR - A local Police Department is warning residents of a phone scam, attempting to take money from citizens.

The Delmar Police Department says they have recently received complaints about citizens getting phone calls from people identifying themselves as employees of the Internal Revenue Service.

According to the report, the alleged IRS employee says that the resident owes the IRS money, usually more than $1,000, and that a warrant has been issued for the citizen's arrest. The caller says that the Delmar Police Department is holding the warrant, but says that if the resident makes a payment, by using a gift card, the warrant will be withdrawn.

Police are advising residents the contact local authorities if you receive a call of this nature, and to not make payments.
