Black Hawk Co. warns of IRS phone scam

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Black Hawk County are warning the public of a telephone scam.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff's office says it's received more than 50 reports of someone calling people claiming to be the IRS. They then threaten a lawsuit against the resident and say to call a phone number. One of the numbers given was 719-201-6296. If you call this number, you're asked for personal information. Again, this is a scam.

The Sheriff's Office wants to issue a reminder that you should not give out your information in this way.
