SCAM ALERT: Suspect using fake Pueblo PD number for IRS scam

PUEBLO, Colo. — Pueblo Police Department is alerting all residents of an IRS scam involving a Pueblo Police Department phone number.

The Department has received information stating that people are receiving calls from the Department’s main telephone number – 719-553-2538 – from a person stating they are an officer and that the individual owes money to the IRS. The impersonator then threatens the person being called with court action if they do not pay the money owed.

The Pueblo Police Department will not make phone calls on behalf of the IRS.

If you have received any calls related to this scam, you can call the Department of Treasury’s toll-free number at 1-800-366-4484.
