There is a scam going around where people will call your phone and say they're with the IRS and that you owe them money. These types of scams have hit residents in Christian County, and the Christian County TRIAD program wants people to know what to expect if you owe the IRS money.
Rich Peters with the Christian County TRIAD program appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to warn people about theses scams. He says he wanted to continue getting the word out, after hearing from several Pana residents how they had received some of these scam calls.
Peters said the IRS will not call you if you owe them money, and instead will send you a letter.
It should also be noted that the debt collection companies will only call you should they not hear from you once they send you a letter.
