Scammers posing as IRS target Bradley Co. residents

Posted: Updated:
BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - Scammers posing as IRS agents are phoning residents in Bradley County and telling them they must make payments on a green dot card.

Bradley County sheriff Eric Watson says scammers are telling residents if they don't pay they  will be prosecuted.

Watson said victims tell investigators that the the caller speaks broken English, leaving instructions, as well as a call back number.  

Watson said the IRS does not do business by asking taxpayers to make payments on a green dot card. If anyone receives similar calls, he says to contact law enforcement.
