Waupun Police Warn of IRS Scam

Waupun Police are reminding residents not to give out any financial information over the phone to someone claiming to be with the IRS. A 30-year old Waupun man said he received a call from a person who told him he had an IRS warrant and ordered him to send Google gift cards to avoid arrest. The victim reports sending $1,500 worth of cards to the person. The IRS says it would never make a call like that – or ask for gift cards as payment.
