Phone Scam

November 21st, 2014

The Tilden Township Police Department was made aware of a phone scam whereby residents were called using an automated system with a female voice.  The message states “Return the call. The issue at hand is extremely time sensitive. My officer Julie Smith from Internal Revenue Service and the hotline to my division is (585) 364-6540. I repeat it’s (585) 364-6540. Don’t disregard this message and do return the call before we take any action against you. Goodbye and take care.” The call will originate out of Fairport, New York.

 

Never give out any personal or financial information over the phone for these types of scams.

 

Residents needing to contact the IRS, should go to www.irs.gov where they can find a phone number to their local IRS office.
