Gonzales Police report rash of IRS scam phone calls
GONZALES - Police in Gonzales say they have received several reports from area residents about an ongoing phone scam where victims report receiving calls from someone claiming to represent the IRS and stating a lawsuit has been filed against the victim.
Investigators say the calls are being made now to cash in on taxpayer anxiety during the newly-opened tax season.
Police also pointed out that the IRS never files lawsuits against individuals, and said that residents should ignore the calls.
If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent the IRS, law enforcement encourages you to contact the Attorney General’s Office at (225) 326-6079.
