Consumer Alert: IRS/Address Scam

Upper Marlboro, MD We are issuing a consumer alert about a scam that involves a caller claiming to be calling from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In the call, the caller is asking for the address of the resident. The resident is also told that the call is being made for Melvin C. High.

The Prince George’s County Office of the Sheriff is not the law enforcement arm of the IRS, nor do we collect money on behalf of the IRS.  Sheriff Melvin C. High has no role in collecting money for the IRS. In addition, the IRS would not have to call you to get your address. If you receive a phone call from anyone asking for your address, for the IRS or any other entity, DO NOT give them your address or any personal information and please call the Prince George’s County Police Department at (301) 352-1200 during daytime business hours. 

For more information contact the Communications and Public Affairs Division at 301-780-7354.
