The published public phone number of 812-867-2079 for the Indiana State Police in Evansville is reported to have been spoofed over the last 24 hours. A person notified the Indiana State Police this morning that he received a phone call from 812-867-2079 and the person calling identified himself as a police officer. The caller further explained that he owed money to the Internal Revenue Service and that if he didn’t pay he would be arrested. This is a common scam and Indiana State Police are NOT calling residents about their unpaid taxes. The Indiana State Police would like to remind everyone that the IRS Scam is still very active and under no circumstance will ISP or any police department will call you directly concerning your taxes.
