IRS PHONE SCAM WARNING

Source: KPD

The Kingman Police Department would like to warn the public of a phone scam that has been attempted on at least two occasions.  During the phone call the caller is reported to represent himself as being from the IRS.  The scammer attempts to convince the person to wire money to satisfy any tax debt.  The caller is reported to have a foreign accent.  This is not how the IRS operates.   Most of these type of phone scams are initiated from outside the United States and usually involve the scammer trying to convince the victim to wire money to another location.  Arrest and apprehension of these criminals is very unlikely.  The best service the police can provide in these types of incidents is to educate and hopefully prevent anyone from being victimized.

“GRANDPARENT SCAM” WARNING

KPD

On Tuesday, June 23rd, a senior citizen report to the Kingman Police Department they had received a telephone call from a person portraying to be their grandchild.   The person making the telephone call reported having been arrested in a foreign country and in need of bail money.  In this case the potential victim knew that the caller was trying to scam them for money.  This is not a new scam.  It has been called the “Grandparent Scam”.   The criminals obtain the contact information for senior citizens from any number of sources.  The scammers prey on the emotions of their victims in hopes that the “grandparent” will send money by Western Union, or any other wire transfer company.  KPD offers information on this and other scams by going to External Resources.  The chances of anyone recovering money sent is slim to none.  The best solution to these scams is prevention.   Please pass this information on to those who are vulnerable.
