New Martinsville Police Chief Warns of IRS Scam

Posted: Updated:
NEW MARTINSVILLE - The New Martinsville Police Department is asking residents to be on the lookout for a scam circulating across the area.

Police Chief Tim Cecil said several residents have received calls telling them they are entitled to "big refunds," or that they owe money that must be immediately paid to the IRS. The caller may even be able to recite the last four digits of the victim's social security number.

Cecil wants people to be aware that the IRS will not call you, they would send a letter if there was an issue.
