Nashville PD warns of IRS phone scam

NASHVILLE — Nashville Police Chief Brian Fletcher warns citizens of a scam involving the Internal Revenue Service.

The NPD received a call from a resident that had been called by someone claiming to be with the IRS saying the family was on the watch list and the family owed money, so they should send it to this individual.

Residents are warned to not give out any important information over the phone if you receive any type of call like this, but also not to send money.

Hang up and call the IRS if you are concerned.
