IRS PHONE SCAM

This being the time of year that everyone is getting their income taxes done is a prime time for IRS Phone Scammers. Don’t listen to them. You can call IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040 if you have questions about your taxes.  As a reminder, the IRS will NEVER Call to demand immediate payment over the phone.    NEVER  Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. NEVER  Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. NEVER  Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer.  NEVER Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.

IF YOU RECEIVE A CALL FROM SOMEONE CLAIMING TO BE FROM THE IRS AND YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY AWARE THAT IT’S A SCAM JUST HANG UP!! IF THEY LEAVE A MESSAGE ON YOUR PHONE DO NOT CALL THEM BACK. REPORT SCAM CALLS BY CALLING 1-800-366-4484.

 

Phone Scam Alert

There have been reports of a phone scam recently.

The callers target grandparents and will tell them it’s one of their grandchildren and they are in trouble and in need of money. It is very possible that the caller will know family details, which they have obtained through various means.  They will then request money be sent to a law office to pay for the legal expenses.

You are advised to call law enforcement if you receive such a call.

JUST A REMINDER:

We have recently had a problem with Solicitors in the Village that do not have Solicitor permits from the Village of Lyndon.  Please if you get solicitors at your door ask to see their Solicitor permit from the Village of Lyndon.  If they do not have one ask them to leave and then call Village Hall to report them.                  815-778-4484  We will be making up some NO SOLICITING signs that you can pickup at Village Hall and display in a window or on a door.
