Watch Out For Phone Scam In Bossier City

It never ceases to amaze me to what lengths criminals will go to steal money.  It seems that if they put the same amount of effort into doing something legal, they’d be successful because of sheer tenacity alone.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got all my phones on the national Do Not Call list, but I’m getting more scam calls than ever on my cell phone.  And the Bossier City Police Department is now warning residents of a scam that appears to be escalating judging from the number of complaints they are receiving from the public.

Seems that some Bossier citizens are being contacted by someone claiming to be from the IRS informing them that they must make a payment or a warrant will be issued for their arrest.  The scammer is demanding that funds be paid over the phone with a personal credit card.

Bossier City Police remind residents that that if they ever receive a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS or any government agency who asks you for a credit card number, or any personal information, don’t give it to them.  It is a scam.

These scammers are hard to stop because calls are coming from all over the world and criminals change their phone numbers continuously.  To be safe, guard your personal information, and never give it out over the phone unless you know exactly who the person is you are giving it to.
