Candia Police: Beware of this IRS Scam



Recently a Candia resident received an unsolicited telephone call in which the male caller claimed to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) , asking for money.  They “spoofed” the Candia Police telephone number so it came up on the caller ID.  These calls are scams and the caller is not legitimate. 


Older residents are usually the targets of these fraudulent telephone calls.  Please avoid conversations with these people and do not give them any personal information and or money


You can file a complaint using the FTC Complain Assistant (choose “Scams & Rip-offs” and then “Imposter Scams"). If the complaint involves someone impersonating the IRS, include the words “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.
