IMPOSTER CALLS FROM US TREASURY TARGETING OHIO RESIDENTS

September 28, 2014

Mike DeWine, Ohio Attorney General, warned recently that Ohio residents are receiving scam phone calls from people pretending to be from the US Treasury demanding immediate payment and personal information.

DeWine's advice is "When in doubt, hang up and call a number that you know is legitimate. Don't use the number provided by the caller."

There a variations of the scam but essentially the caller claims to be from the US Treasury and that the resident owes money for taxes. Further, that the resident will be investigated or arrested unless they make an immediate payment.
