Local residents warned about scammers pretending to be IRS

Area residents have reportedly received calls that have been identified as an Internal Revenue Service phone scam.

According to Joel Marmelstein, a seasonal resident and former State Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Utica Regional Office, he and many friends have received the calls that he says are, “one of the most convincing, and therefore frightening, announcements I have heard…and I have reviewed many.”

The calls begin with “You are being sued by the Internal Revenue Service.”

Marmelstein suggests Googling “IRS telephone scam” for web sites from the IRS and other agencies that would provide valuable information.

Anyone who has received similar calls should contact the Town of Webb Police at (315) 369-3157.
