IRS phone scam in Chester, IL

CHESTER, IL (KFVS) - The Chester Police Department has received a variety of complaints regarding scam calls.

The most complaints are of an auto-dial message stating to be from the IRS that the person receiving the message has actions pending with the police department and if they do not contact the given number, the police department will arrive shortly to arrest them.
