Police warn about ongoing IRS scam

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton Police Department is warning everyone about an IRS scam.

Police say if you receive any calls from someone with a 202 area code number claiming to be from the IRS, saying there's a case against you or the IRS plans to take legal action, it’s a scam. You do not need to answer or call back.

If the IRS was legitimately contacting you, they will not do so by phone, but through the mail or in person.

This IRS scam has been going on for well over a year, and you can read more about it from the IRS directly.
