EPD Warns Citizens of Social Security/IRS Scam Calls

Eastland Police Department is warning citizens of fraudulent calls purporting to be from Social Security. The calls, originating from multiple numbers, inform citizens of supposed fraud alerts placed on their social security numbers.

Additional calls are pretending to be from the IRS with various fraudulent reasons for the phone call.

As a rule of thumb, neither real agency will make phone calls of this type. All correspondence will be by U.S. mail.

Please warn elderly family members of these scams as the elderly are the most vulnerable and solicited by these type scams.

If you need more information please feel free to contact the Eastland Police Department at 254-629-1700.
