Phone scammers are getting very creative these days. The most recent scam you should be aware of is a person calling you and pretending to be from the IRS. They either claim that you are entitled to a large refund or that you owe the IRS money. It has even gotten to the point where these people have managed to “spoof” or imitate the IRS toll-free number on your Caller-ID to make it appear the call is official. Dakota County Chief Deputy Sheriff, Tim Leslie, talks about the scam.
