IRS scams reported

The Dalles resident Christy Matson reported an IRS scam to the police department Thursday out of concern that other community members, especially seniors, might get caught in the fraudulent scheme. Matson had received a message on her home phone that a warrant had been issued for her arrest due to unpaid taxes. She was directed to call a number with a “703” prefix to make payments arrangements. A Chronicle reporter called the number provided by Matson and connected with a man who spoke broken English. When told that the call was about settling an IRS case, he put a “supervisor” on the line. That man hung up quickly when a reporter began asking questions.
