GRAND BLANC (WJRT) - (03/13/19) - The Grand Blanc City Police Department is warning residents of a new scam circulating in the area involving one of its phone numbers.
The department is getting reports of fake IRS calls that appear to be coming from the department. Officers say the scammer is using technology to clone their number and try stealing from people.
The number that shows up on caller ID is 810-694-1111.
The department is reminding the community that police and local agencies don't make such calls. The IRS also won't call demanding immediate payment over the phone.
No legitimate agency will request payment with pre-paid gift cards, either.
