On May 25 at approximately 2030 hours, the Vermont State
Police received a complaint of a scam. The victim reported having been contacted by a person claiming to be an IRS representative. The subject demanded the victim send in cash immediately. The victim subsequently sent ‘payments’ to two different subjects for a total of $4,500. It should be noted the subjects requested the victim to purchase iTunes cards and cash them in as payment. The victim advised both subjects threatened him with federal warrants and suspension of his license if he did not comply.
The Vermont State Police want to remind citizens to be vigilant and cautious of
such phone calls and to not make such payments to subjects demanding them. It is advised to immediately hang up the phone and to not offer any information to anyone claiming to be from the IRS.
