Police warn of IRS scam targeting residents

The phone number appears on the caller ID as a New York number, however, when called it is answered by individuals with heavy foreign accents, according to police.When this scam first appeared in the Spring of 2016, receivers of the calls were advised to call U.S. Sen. Susan Collins’ office fraud hotline at (855) 303-9470.
