Residents are being warned about a widespread phone scam. The Internal Revenue Service says people are calling claiming to be IRS agents and demanding payment for fake tax liens.

  • After threatening victims with jail time or driver's license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.
