When it's tax season, the crooks come out to play. Here's a friendly reminder from our neighborhood police department.

When you get a phone call from someone claiming to be with the IRS, don't believe everything they say. Just so you know, the IRS will never ask for a payment over the phone!

St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke says the department is receiving numerous calls about IRS phone scams.
DO NOT give out any personal or financial information over the phone!
