Callers Posing as Government Officials

A recurring phone scam is making its rounds back to Illinois. Callers are posing as government officials.

If someone asks you to send money by claiming you are under criminal investigation or owe unpaid taxes to the internal revenue service, it's a scam. The callers tell people that they should act quickly to avoid being arrested or have their bank accounts frozen.

This is the same scam that started last August.
