A resident reported that he received a phone call from a person claiming to be calling from the IRS. The person demanded payment for owed taxes with gift cards. The resident purchased gift cards and called the person back, reading the card numbers to them over the phone.
The next day the resident received a phone call from someone claiming to be from the police department. The resident was told he needed to pay more money or he would be arrested. The Caller ID displayed our administrative phone line 410-268-9000. The resident did not purchase gift cards this time.
This is a fraud using Caller ID spoofing. The IRS will not call you and demand payment using gift cards. We will not call and tell you that you have a warrant and that you need to send us money or buy gift cards.
