Warning Citizens of Scam Phone Calls

Date of News Release: 01/29/2016

(Morehead, KY) - The Kentucky State Police in Morehead has received several complaints in the past week from people advising there have been scam phone calls from someone stating they are with the IRS.

The phone calls are usually made from a 505 area code. The caller will state that a debt is owed and if they are not paid, legal action will be taken against them.

The IRS will never contact an individual by phone. KSP wants to encourage the public to never give anyone their personal information over the phone. If you receive a suspicious phone call, contact KSP at 1-800-222-5555.
