CCSO: Tax season brings more scams

COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Cochise County Sheriff's Office has seen an increase in telephone scams with the onset of tax season. 

The most recent caller advised that someone left a message on her voice mail that advised "the IRS is looking into your finances and you need to call 206-736-6885 immediately". Attempts to contact this number by law enforcement results in a recorded message stating no one is available and then disconnects.

Please do not fall prey to this or any telephone scam! 

The Arizona Department of Revenue has a fraud prevention system in place and continues development and implementation of new counter measures to combat the ever increasing methods of scams being reported.
