LIHUE — Kauai police have received numerous reports last week regarding an IRS phone scam. Police Chief Darryl Perry is warning the public to be aware of this and other types of money fraud.
KPD warns that scammers are impersonating IRS agents and use aggressive tactics to convince victims that they owe money to the IRS. They often threaten arrest or legal action to pressure the victim into making a payment over the phone.
If you suspect a scam, please call the Kauai Police Department at 241-1711. “Above all else, never give your personal or financial information to someone you don’t know,” Perry said.
