MIAMI COUNTY — The Miami County Communication Center has been receiving numerous calls related to residents receiving phone calls of person(s) representing themselves as IRS personnel. Many of these scams originate overseas. If you receive such a phone call, please tell the person not to call back and hang up. There is no need to report the activity to the Communication Center unless money has been sent/deposited to an account of the scammers or the caller continues to call back, which would amount to telecommunications harassment.

This will help alleviate the call load the Communication Center has been experiencing.
