Scammers sending fake IRS letters to senior citizens

Police have been notified that scammers are sending fake letters appearing to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to senior citizens across the state. BEWARE! If you have received a letter from the "IRS" and they ask that a check be made out to "The IRS", this can be a clear sign this is a fake letter, looking  to steal your information and your money.

Check the P.O. Box address against the government mailing address, located at https://www.irs.gov/filing/where-to-file-paper-tax-returns-with-or-without-a-payment.
