Police Warn of IRS Scam

Rapides authorities are warning people of an IRS scam.

They say callers identified themselves as IRS agents and one even said he was a member of the RPSO Swat Team.   All are told they have warrants for unpaid taxes and demand a credit or debit card number to pay off the debt.

Authorities say simply hang up. Tax collections are not handled like this.
