Richland — Multiple Richland residents have contacted police about a scam involving callers pretending to be from the Internal Revenue Service.
Citizens received calls asking them to contact the number 585-444-7053 ext. 2, police said. Callers are then forwarded to a voice recording, which ask them to leave their name and phone number.
A person then calls back and requests personal information, police said. The scam is common and is nationwide.
Police are asking anyone who receives a call from the number not to call it back.
