Someone has been trying a scam in the Pawhuska area.  According to information from the Pawhuska Chamber of of Commerce, a potential victim gets a phone call from someone with a very heavy accent and they claim to be with the Internal Revenue Service. They ask for personal information and if you don't comply, they threaten to have the police come to arrest you.  The scam attempt was also reported in the Oklahoma City area last week.

Don't be a victim to scam attempts.  Don't give out personal information over the phone.  IRS officials have previously announced they don't call taxpayers.  Official communications will come in the mail, usually by certified letter.  Hang up and then report the scam attempt to the police.
