Wayne County authorities warn resident about tax scam

GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) – The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office is once again warning residents about a tax scam after receiving multiple reports of people claiming to have been contacted by the Internal Revenue Service.

Authorities say the caller claims the victim owes back taxes and if they do not immediately pay, they will be arrest or sued.

The caller tries to persuade the victim to either charge the money to a debit card or credit card or to wire the money to a certain address.

The Sheriff‘s office warns residents to never give out any type of financial information to any unknown person over the phone.
