Scammers have resurfaced with a new version of an old scam using threats of a warrant for IRS debt. The thieves called the latest victim and said that they were with the United States Treasury Department and working with the Henderson Police Department. They asked her to meet them at the courthouse and gave her the phone number of the Henderson Police.  It all seemed legit, but it isn’t. The unscrupulous caller told the unsuspecting valley resident that she should go to CVS and get pre-paid credit cards. Legitimate law enforcement agencies won’t call on the phone to collect money for warrants and ask for payment with pre-paid credit cards. Don’t fall for this cheap trick and don’t give out your personal information. Inform your friends and family about this scam because these attempts to steal money are rampant.
