A Crossville woman told Sheriffs Deputies that she has received two phone calls from someone claiming to be with the IRS. The caller tells the victim that she faces a lawsuit if she does not pay taxes that she owes. Thats when the victim says she hangs up. The scammers are calling from 845-928-2408 and 888-741-3390. The scammers usually ask the victim to send them a prepaid money card. They can be very convincing as they often reveal a lot of personal information about their targets. The IRS says you should hang up on such calls and you can file a complaint with the Federal Trade.
