Police warning residents of IRS phone scam

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) -- The police department in Nashua, New Hampshire, is warning residents of a phone scam where callers are portraying themselves as employees of the Internal Revenue Service and demanding money.

They say in the most recent scheme, an elderly couple was contacted and advised that they owed a certain amount of cash to the Internal Revenue Service. They were told that if payment was not received, they would face immediate arrest.

The caller provided detailed instructions advising the couple to withdraw cash and to then purchase gift cards/green dot cards.

Police said an alert clerk at a local convenience store cautioned the elderly couple that the purchase of such a large number of gift cards/green dot cards was more than likely a scam. The couple ended up suffering no monetary loss.
