CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Police Department wishes to warn citizens about a phone scam involving the IRS.

The callers claim to be from the IRS and demand money. These are not legitimate IRS representatives and citizens are urged to hang up and not send money.

The IRS does not solicit the public over the phone for money and will not threaten to arrest, deport, or revoke an individual’s license.
